10pm on Tuesday has never seemed so late.
I would really like to make a longer post but for now, I have to say that even though it was (as ever) a shit-ton of work, it was super AWESOME to see friends - some of whom we only see once a year. (Also as ever - but I'd really like to change that!)
Being back home is great, but weird - we can't send down for more raw fish, and if I get bored sitting here there isn't a lobby full of furries (many of whom are friends) just a short elevator ride away. Then again, this couch is AWFULLY comfortable! I guess I can trade their crisp 400 thread count cotton sheets for my significantly less crisp (I don't iron sheets) but still pretty nice bed linen. If I can convince Bruce or Ninj to lounge over my ankles and purr, I'll defo be ahead of the game!
Also, Holy Cats but my feets are tired! We did a trade for some chair massage right after packing up our booth and that was sure a good investment! My feet are really sore and my back isn't great, but shoulders and arms (where he did the most) feel pretty decent. I think we have ourselves a new FC tradition here. ;-)
This year we didn't spin at all, and also didn't sign up to do any panels. Last year we were way overscheduled and it really kicked our asses! This year, we took it much more chill (even so, we're both exhausted). I think the Bunny may have a touch of the con crud. Hopefully it's just exhaustion.
Our room party was fantastic - the company was the most stellar evar, and people brought so many treats and bevvies! And I totally loved watching folks eat my home made crackers and canapes, and hearing Jovino brag about how good they were. ;-)
Sales went well and the new critter totally went over! I super super miss FCTV though. It seems like every year the hotels charge us more and offer us less. Oh for the days when we could sit on our asses on our bed, drinking a beer and reconciling receipts while watching the variety show or the masquerade!
Next year I would really like to arrange some boof help such that Jovino and I could both not be there at the same time for at least a little while. That would rock.
Ok, sooper tyord. Will post a better organized con report tomorrow!
