thank you

Hello Anthrocon,

your friendly neighborhood greenthing signing in just to say thanks again for another successful year.

This was my 4th Anthrocon and I was still blown away by the sheer number of people. I actually filled my commission quota within 2 hours of the Dealer's Room opening on Friday, something I have never done before in 20 conventions.

I apologize that I wasn't at my table on Saturday, but having my quota filled I thought it best to get some work done in the privacy of my own room. I was not ill, nor was I absent for any of those other horrible reasons/rumors floating around the convention. Trust me, I've now heard plenty of them. Just wanted to set the record straight on that I suppose.

Everyone was incredibly chill and kind, and I'd like to say thank you again for that. I'm still just disgusted at the actions of certain people, however. My tablemate painteddog had all of her Paw Pop chocolate candy stock stolen out from under her table after the Dealer's Den closed on Saturday night. I would strongly encourage anyone who has information about this thievery to come forward. It hurts me to see how much time and effort she spent on those things just to have them carelessly lifted, and it also hurts me to see this fandom able to so heartlessly turn on one another that way. I know we don't always see eye to eye with one another, but I hope we are able to at least always respect one another.

Anywho, a few completed badges were brought home with me. Could the following people please drop me a line at likeshineartATgmailDOTcom :
-Blaz (large cut out badge, IBM dragon)
-Jesper (i have a badge with the proper name on it for you now)
-Genevieve (pre ordered badge that was never picked up)
-Rain (orange tabby with blond ponytail, pre ordered badge that was never picked up)

thanks again for all the love and poptarts Anthrocon! See ya'll in 2009! Oh, and if anyone has any Beetlejuice photos to share with us, please send them to the aforementioned email addy!

That's horrible that anyone would steal anything from someone. >:(

But damn, that is pretty incredible and awesome that you filled up so quick. Glad to hear you did so well this year!

I'm still in shock myself. I keep a 50 page index card notebook to keep track of orders at cons, and I still can't believe the book was filled that quickly! like wow, dude.

And yes I'm very upset she was stolen from. It's not about the money, or the supplies, it's a trust thing, you know? I just don't understand why someone would steal. Those were $1 chocolates on a stick, for goddssake.

Message relayed to Blaz. I'm unsure if he has an LJ.

I'll text Genevieve about that. I had thought she had picked it up before the close of the con.

Hey! I was only at AC for about 3 hours this year because - well, I shall spare you all the histronics. However, send me your pay pal address or some other address and I will get $$$ to you (and I will pay for shipping. Not a problem.) I basically only got to see half of the fursuit parade, visit the dealer's room and then hang with friends. :( Next year, I will be in attendance the whole con! This I swear!

I wish I could help with finding who stole the goodies. That is just beyond wrong. I mean, it's not like vendors are millionaires and won't miss the $$ they lost... because having stock stolen is stealing $$ (IMHO).

My email is rainoubliette at gmail dot com. :D

Can't wait to hear from you!
