Anyway...I digress. I had to get more beer to be able to stand the skits that were presented at the Masquerade. After it was over I had dinner with jugularjaguar who had ordered take-out BBQ. It was much better than the stuff I got at the Rendezvous a few nights earlier. The ice-cream social was fun. A large balloon was being bounced around the audience which then became a few dozen thanks to bjbuttons. It was a fun time! The fursuit games followed but I decided to sit them out because Nevada was still sweaty from my earlier outing. I played cameraman for Brace Bear instead as well as acting as a go-fer when the water ran out in the headless lounge. Trust me! A fursuiter is very motivated when he sees his fellow suiters in need! Later that night I tried to get another room party started, but once again it never materialized.
On Monday I brought down all of my unconsumed soda and alcohol to the lobby and gave it away. I was pretty bummed that I had that much left over. I said good-bye to everyone and just hung out until 11. It was an uneventful flight back to ABQ. Kitty picked me up and we went out for dinner. I didn't want to get too close to her, however, because I picked up a nasty case of con crud. Bleh! So now I'm back at work and the mundane world is closing in around me once again. Overall impression of the con: Fair. Perhaps 2 stars out of 5. I saw that the attendance only increased 2% as opposed to the "usual" 10%. I don't know how much longer I will go to this con. It's nice and small, but the location sucks. It's expensive to get to Memphis and there's just nothing around the hotel that makes it worthwhile. Since my brother bear is now on staff, I may have to go to help him out if he asks. Oh well. I have MFF to look forward to in just over 2 months and FC 2 months after that.
