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!
