June 26th, 2007: We're still working on getting everything copasetic on the new site! I'm linking to the Wikipedia article about "copasetic" because It Is A Really Interesting Word. It's one of the few words where it's used pretty often and we don't really know where it came from! Like most of these cases, there are a handful of folk etymologies of varying degrees of implausibility.
MoCCA was tons of fun and I wish I had had more time to hang out with everyone! I met my friends that I only get to see once a year and some new friends too, and everyone who came by was really nice and friendly. Thank you to the young lady who gave me a dinosaur necklace! I'm not sure if I said "thank you" enough when I got it but it is definitely rad and I wore it for the rest of the show AND the ride home. The guy at the border didn't comment on it but you could so tell he wanted to.
I didn't bring a camera so I've been doing searches for con reports and also my own name and I'm glad the con looks as fun in the camera as it is in real life.
GUESS WHAT JUST CAME OUT: IT'S MY NEW BOOK!! If you've ever wondered what you'd do if you were stranded in the past, wonder no longer!
