MFF Report, And Vacation Report Part 1!
Midwest FurFest was Teh Cool! I love that con a lot, because it's one of those smaller, more personal cons, where you can actually relax a little bit and not just spend the entire weekend going crazy. Hey to everyone out there that I got a chance to see again, and yay for all the new people I got to meet! ^^ Also, sorry to those who wanted artwork from me that I didn't get a chance to get to. I thought I would be spending some more time in the Artists Ally, but some last minute stuff happened and I was unfortunately not able to make it back at the times I said I would. X.x So sorry to all of those people who wanted artage. But I WILL be at Furry Weekend Atlanta, and Anthrocon, and of course next year's Midwest FurFest, so anyone who wants to catch me can do so at those next cons. :)

~ Getting to hang out with old friends once again! And meeting new ones. :) *waves Hello to India, Buran, Dream runner, Laurene, Jay Naylor, Exile, Bonk and Fossil, Frisket and Nall, Kitty and Max Black Rabbit, Babs, Alpine, Theome, Gabe and Danni, Lord Skandranon, Warphammer, Gir, Zim, Nemet, Dalia, Nauta, Aerak and Sevron, Kiro Neem, and anyone else who she may have forgotten!*

~ Hanging out in the Artists Ally with many other talented people was a lot of fun. Everyone had a cool sense of humor that kept the place alive and friendly. :) And people brought food to my table. Yee. ^^

~ Going out to dinner with Frisket and Nall at the REALLY NICE Omega's restaurant! Dood, that place was so fancy, it made me feel like some kind of rich snob just to eat there. ;) But the food was REALLY good, and came in REALLY large amounts, and was very inexpensive as well! We definitely gotta do that again next year! ;)

~ One of my Art Show pieces actually made it to the voice auction! W00t!

~ Hanging with Lord Skandranon and just chilling out while he set up and recorded 2's new DVD commentary. *GRINS* And of course, recording the extras, including the "horse spooge" beer bottle trick. ;)

~ Uncle Kage and 2 Gryphon's two-hour improve show. That rawked a lot. ^^

~ As much as I hate to leave a con, the limo ride back to the airport was pretty sweet. *grins*

Yes, MFF was Teh Rawk, and I can't wait until next year! ^^


Right now I'm chilling at 2_gryphon's place, typing away at jakebe's computer. I'll be here until Monday afternoon or so, and then I'm catching a flight back to Chicago, and then from there Chris will be picking me up and driving both me and Bluey to the Greyhound station so that we can catch the bus back home to Toronto for Tuesday morning.

But so far my little vacation here has been great (and NO, hon, I have not been bored!). I really like hanging with the NARFA furs. I missed this place, and can't believe it's already been eight months since I last visited. I really wish I could just pick up and move here already, but with certain situations suddenly changing, it may still be another year or more before that will happen. I AM still saving up for it though.


So far I've been having fun watching DVDs, hanging with Jakebe, Prismo and Aubrin, and bugging 2 every chance I get. ;) Got in some art time, mastered Darts, read some disturbingly cool comics, and have NOT slept for 12 hours of each day. :-P Yesterday 2 taught me how to play Chess. :} I like Chess. ^^ It's a very clever game and challenges your wits. And tomorrow I was going to cook oven roasted potatoes to bring to Ryng's Thanksgiving potluck dinner, but I gave the recipe to Jakebe instead, cos now I'll be going with 2 to his mom's place for Thanksgiving instead.

Yee. Having so much fun. I is a happy wuff. ^^ I wish I wasn't leaving on Monday. >.<

*gives loving nibbles to her gryphy and murrrrs*

Will write more soon. :)

You got limo rides TOO? :P Somebody else (looks back.... nope, too far to see again) got a limo, I think.

I can't wait to see you at FWA. ^.^ You looked cute in the picture that was taken of you with Exile in his new fursuit. :D

And also, I hope we talk again in IRC tomorrow. Glad you're in the NARFA cube and snuggling the gryphy. :3

Gotta second that. The more I read Jessie's posts and the more Kiran tells me on FR, the more I wonder why I haven't abandoned New England for the south yet.

Sorry I missed everything, but I WILL go to FWA! It's only 6 hours away from here, so I've very little reason not to ^_^

I enjoy Feral! for the same reasons. Small, personal, and you really get the sense of "family" when you leave.

I didn't know you don't play chess. It's certainly a game of wits and skill. I've NEVER been able to beat my dad at chess, but the last time I played against someone I won. Meh, it was a fluke. I'm not SUPER GOOD, but I have my moments.

Maybe we can play sometime the next time I see you?

It's Great to hear you had fun.
I'm sorry to hear you have to push back you moving date again. It seems you've been trying so hard to move and for one reason or another things just don’t want to work out.
I hope there wont be any problems bringing your fuzzy critters with you. With all the dogs I saw there when I was visiting I don’t think anyone would make a big deal about it. My only concern is about bringing them across the border. I just hope they don’t want to quarantine them for a week or something, cause that would really suck.

I keep hearing how cool the smaller cons can be. I guess I should try getting to MFF sometime huh >^_^< .

So you finally got to meet 2's mom in person. What do you think... She's pretty cool isn't she :D .

Have fun, enjoy your gryphy, and I hope to see you at AC05 >^_^< .

I have to say it sucked how they treated everyone of the artist alley thing. They didn't have much order to it. Glad to see you and Zim could get in. Maybe I will get a commision done by yeah some day.
