Pondfilk report 1

I ran away from home this weekend. Woo Hoo!

First, I ducked out of work early, then swung by and picked up hsifyppah before heading out to the ferry. We made good time and got the 2pm ferry.

she_who_filks was already there, and carmiel and raishaan have already been here most of the week working on their CD with pondside. They have the kids in tow; I thought about bringing MonkeyBoy and GirlyGirl. Though it might have been nice for them to have someone to play with, I'm glad I didn't. I like being able to relax during Pondfilk.

moosaic4 and her lovely hubby were there too. Which was mucho awesome, since I haven't seen them since last time I went to Orycon which was November 2006. Too frickin' long!

We hung out and made music and I got to show off my new guitar, which met with approval all around. Then hsifyppah ordered me to finish the final verse of my John song because she apparently liked it.

A little later, hsifyppah and solomons_pond went off to collect peteralway and judifilksign from the airport. Yay! The GoHs arrived!

So, judifilksign is amazing. Watching her talk and sign is just fantastic. I never realized that hands could be lyrical. I can't wait to see her sign along with "They Talked With Their Hands"! We alternated between talking and making music until *waaaay* too late, and then finally, reluctantly went to bed.

runnerwolf and sar_anon showed up early today, followed by dan_ad_nauseam and kendaer a few years later. Even as I was typing this, motherinlawtree and Tom walked in the door.

I never realize how much I miss seeing all these awesome people until I see them again. My theory is I miss them so much I have to suppress.

::hugs filk peeps to bossom::

So far I have:

- finished my John song. *WOO HOO*
- brainstormed with moosaic4 on her new song and helped (I hope) with tightening up some of the verses
- helped judifilksign figure out the chords for her new song, then dropped it into Noteworthy so she now has actual musical notation (and subsequently, so do *I* - which was my evil plan!)
- laid down a harmony track for one of the songs on pondside's upcoming CD
- played around with the tracks pondside has laid for the Champion song; she let me lay my own vocal track on it. Whoa! I actually don't completely suck! In tune and *not flat* for more than 90% of the song! Colour me impressed!
- brainstormed with runnerwolf on her character filk and with judifilksign's help, come up with a chorus. Yay! Progress!

While I was in the studio with pondside, nimuejohn got here. I have so much ben looking forward to meeting her because ZOMG! She wrote Leather Pants of Evil which is so much fun - SQUEE!!

So, I think it has been established that I am feeling a litle bit loopy. I had a muffin today. And, uhm... 3 cups of coffee. Doubles. Hee. moosaic4 prepared me food and then made me eat. I feel a little less spinny now.

Still waiting for vixyish and tfabris to show up. Very sad to hear that trystel and tuto will not be maikng it after all.

To all you filkers who can't make it this weekend - dude, you are *so* missing out.

Sigh ... I wish I could have, but the New Job remains top priority for me, and will for many moons to come.

I hope you all have a wonderful and tuneful time, even if some are singing in the traditional (for filking) key of "off." Best wishes and ((hugs)) to you, pondside and all the others.
