Remembering the Squee...

Last time I posted, it was several weeks shy of Squee Weekend. Well, Squee has come and gone, and it was fantastic. I'd say it was about as close to being on Atlantis as one can get, with all the marathoning of episodes and discussion of characters, plot, story arcs and more. I had a wonderful time and am so glad I was able to go. It was quite an adventure for some of us to even get there.

I took the red-eye down on the Tuesday night with the plan that Mezzo would come fetch me from the airport around 9am and we'd hang out for a bit and then I would crash for a few hours. Ha! The Ghods of the Air deemed that one of my connecting flights would be cancelled, so I was delayed by about 7 hours. I can't complain too much, though, because at least I got there the same day. Poor zoemathemata was stuck in Chicago overnight, and wyndewalker's flight was cancelled two days in a row! Eventually, we all made it.

Best times (that I can remember off the top of my head):

    ROOMIES! I bunked with goddess47 and mezzo_cammin, who are just the most mellow and wonderful roomies a girl could ask for.

    Meeting selenic76, who did the lovely art I got for the sgareversebang last year.

    CRAFTING! Making bracelets and necklaces and more with tangotabby, sgamadison and selenic76 was awesome! Lots of other folks joined in the crafting, but the four of us were hardcore serious about making fandom related stuff. Heh. It's SO COOL to do craft things with other people who share your passions, dude. Seriously. Fricking. Cool.

    melagan and neevebrody. Yeah. Because they are truly made of awesome in a special and unique way and when you meet them face to face it's an experience like no other. I wish I could kidnap them and bring them home with me.


It was really fantastic and awesome to see those I'd already met again and meet new folks for the first time; squidgiepdx is truly a delight, and I've got to find a reason to pop down across the line sometime soon just so I can see him again.

It's been pretty crazy since I got back from SC.

    *I flew in on Tue. Sept 16th, then spent the rest of the week catching up on work.
    *Music group rehearsal in Bellingham, Sat. Sept 20th
    *The whole next week was mad crazy prep for the Fall Fair Sept 27 (which was fantastic).
    *Sunday was a mad rush of shopping and packing for my business trip (Sept 29 - Oct 3rd).
    *Flew in Friday, dropped my stuff at home, then headed to capnblackberry's for rehearsal.
    *Sat, Oct 4th, another rehearsal.
    *Sun, Oct 5th, performance at the UU.


No wonder I was so bagged this week. O_o

The kids and I decided to do Thanksgiving dinner today so the rest of the weekend would just be RELAXATION. It was a busy day cleaning (after being away so much, the house was rather disaster-area-esque) and cooking, I finally found the time and energy to post.

Next on the Agenda: sga_santa assignments come out tomorrow! I'm so sad this is the final year; I've really enjoyed being part of it. With mcshep_match gone as well, all that's left (that I can recall off the top of my head) is sgareversebang. I hope that one will stick around for a while yet.

It was so much fun meeting you too, and doing crafts and everything! ^_^ Thanks for sharing your memories on SW, I'm so glad you made it there *HUGS* I still need to write my report, eep!

(oh and you've hit a typo on 'melagan', the link goes into a wrong userpage)

The crafts totally made the weekend for me. I love doing that kind of stuff with other people - makes it so much more fun!

Wow, you know, you have one of the busiest agendas I am aware of.

But hey, Melagan is thinking about doing Romancing McShep again so ping her and tell her yes, if you think you'd like to play there! I'm sure she'll be posting about it around the end of the year, but I suspect some encouragement wouldn't go amiss.

That darn retrograde Mercury is at fault!

But happy to hear the trip was lots of fun for you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

AHHHH! LOVE IT!

Just showed my girls - they cracked up at the antics the boys got into with mom's beads. Thanks for sharing!

I missed that entirely! O_O I love the pic, and love the boys, hehee ^_^ Thanks for sharing!

(It looks like John is wondering if that would be Rodney's colour, and Rodney in turn is envisioning John tied up with those pretty chains... :P)

I keep meaning to post about Squee Weekend but it's hard to put the experience into words. So much fun!

I gave up trying to quantify and remember everything - just mention the things that bubble to the top when you think about it. Like making an SGA themed bracelet! :)

Good point! I just want to write everything down so that in 6 months, when my memory gets foggy, I can reference that post and be like, "AH. Yes!"

If by "delight" you meant "that crazy man who sexually harasses people almost as much as Captain Jack Harkness" then yes - I am.

::grin::

Boo says we need to come up to BC, so I'll let you when we plan to show up! And it was SO MUCH FUN!!!!! Is it Squee yet?

Delight, Crazy man, it all looks the same from here.

Boo says we need to come up to BC, so I'll let you when we plan to show up!

Excellent! I look forward to it!
