Penguicon
I am so sooo tired today! besides the usual staying up way late during Penguicon having funness, I had to stay up way late last night to finish up a paper for school. I got it turned in at 3:15am.

I was tempted to skip work today, but I knew that would be Wrong in many ways. So here I am.

It was a good weekend. I had some sad moments, but mostly focused on friends and hugs and conversation.

There were a few awkward moments when some friends innocently inquired after F, and I had to tell them it was over. That always led to hugs though, which was nice.

Netmouse and I had planned a pool party, but we were both kinda frazzled and distracted so we didn't really tell anybody. (at least that's my excuse)

It was fun with just 4 though. Singing and laughing and at one point a surprisingly effective swimming blob.

Brendan talked me into trying Guitar Hero, which I liked. Especially since that was a moment when I was feeling ather down and drifty, so I'm glad he helped perk me up.

I liased for Christine Peterson, which went well. She didn't actually need much of anything, making my job easy. I monitored her panels, did a bit of running and grabbing people and drinks, but that was all that was required except for airport rides. I even gave an extra guy a ride to the airport who was in the right place at the right time. Cool that we were able to help.

I was on a Women in Technology panel (my brainchild actually), which I felt went well. I'm interested in doing that again.

A guy saw me in the consuite and said, "I recognize you. You cost me $9,000 last year!"

I was reduced to a combination of stuttering, blinking, and tentative laughing. I was a bit horrified, because he seemed serious. How could I have been responsible for that??

Then he said that had attended Dancing For Geeks last year. He'd enjoyed it so much that had started taking ballroom lessons.

That's pretty cool! I'm thinking we should do that one again next year.

The things I learned in that class directly benefited my formal dance evening with Lucy last month :)

You forgot to mention handing my 12 year old a beer!

(Okay, and I forgot to mention that you specifically told her not to drink it.)

:P

It was good seeing you. Hopefully we can get out for lots of walks this summer.

did you come into somerset today? i thought i saw you in lush but i wasnt sure. i was in a psuedo meeting.
renniekins From: renniekins Date: April 24th, 2007 03:02 am (UTC) (Link)
Yes! It's funny because I went to visit Deb, but swung through Lush on my way. I'd never been there before, but everyone has been raving about it so I wanted to check it out.

I saw people at the counter and even talked to somebody, but I didn't really *look* at anybody because I didn't have much time and was just kind of in my own little world.... Then she reminded me that you were working there now, and I felt rather silly because I'd totally forgotten and hadn't actually looked at anyone's face!

I work just down the road and occasionally visit Somerset on my lunch when I need to get away. I will definitely look for you next time I'm there. (:

Glad I got a chance to talk to you this weekend. I *think* I remember you asking me to post to your blog so you could connect the LJ ID and face, but it was a highly sleepless weekend, so I may be hallucinating.

Wouldn't be the first time. ;)

nine THOUSAND dollars? Somebody was taking private lessons twice a week!
renniekins From: renniekins Date: April 24th, 2007 03:05 am (UTC) (Link)
I know, crazy huh? In my head I like to imagine that he got into competetive ballroom, so along with private lessons he did all the costumes and sequins and travel and stuff, which is why it cost so much!
