Penguicon - cellophane — LiveJournal
the story of an invisible girl
Penguicon was really great fun, even though I was only there for less than a day. Yesterday morning I got up at about 4:30am, packed my bags, took the shuttle to the airport, checked in, flew to Detroit, got on the shuttle to my car, and drove home. All before 9am, which is (on a regular saturday) a little before the time I generally get up! I then took a nap and went to Penguicon.

It was a really full day, I saw lots of cool people, had some fun, enjoyed good conversations, and did lots of neat things. That's the short version. I might tackle a longer version later. It's all a bit blurry in my head -- I know it ended at 4:30am because I was in the parking lot getting into my car to go home, and my phone's alarm went off. The same alarm I'd set for the morning prior....

I did my Race for the Cure fundraiser again, just like at ConFusion, although it was much more low-key at this con. For one thing I was there for a much shorter time frame, and for another thing I just didn't press it very hard. I rely mostly on word-of-mouth, and there were so many other things going on! Not a problem; every little bit counts. Even with less than a full day and only quiet fundraising, we gathered:

34 singles
+ 8 fives
+ 1 ten
+ 2 twenties

Not bad! I've already applied the money on my Race For the Cure page, which you can find here. Wish you were there? Wish you had an I ♥ Boobs ribbon? I have leftovers this time! I'll mail one to anybody who donates.

May 31st. I will likely be leaving for Gent that night too, since it's the anticipated date of the next colo!

Cool! If you're okay with doing it online via credit card, you can do it here:

If not, email renniekins at livejournal dot com and I can send you my snail address.

Awwwww! I am so glad I made it.

The only sad part is that, being there such a not-very-long-time, I didn't get to hang out with or spend enough time with all the people I wanted to! Yourself and your "clan" included.
