Another FWA is over. Yay. :P

There's really not much I can say that hasn't been said already at this point. Thanks go out to my awesome staff - without you the con would not happen each year. Thanks go our to our awesome GOHs for being so excellent at all times. Thanks go out to our guests (guys like [livejournal.com profile] 2_gryphon and [livejournal.com profile] halioffirpine among many others) who do so much for the convention.

But most of all, the absolute biggest thanks go you, our attendees. We pride ourselves on being an attendee-focused convention. We do this all for you, and when I hear people say things like "this was one of the best weekends of my life," it's like hooking a battery up to a nuclear reactor. It makes me want to do it all again in a week.

I had two awesome moments this weekend. First was drinking - perhaps a bit too much - with [livejournal.com profile] zotcoon in the bar Friday night and talking shop about development, flying and life. And the second was running into Hati, an old, old friend from my Furreality MUCK days.

There were some issues, of course. We'll deal with those in the offseason like we always do. But I'm already pumped for FWA 2012, Moulin Rouge. I hope we'll see you all - and your friends - there. After all, just think. What if everyone who was at the con this year brought just one person with them... :P

Had a good and productive weekend.
  • Got the hydrangea trimmed back, and the property line cleared. The chainsaw made short work of both of those. Also got the front bed and mailbox bed weeded. All I still have left to do is chop the stuff I cleared up from the property line into firewood.

  • Went out to try the new barbecue place at Bridge Street - Smoke House. Sarah and I both really enjoyed it. The barbecue quality was as good as Greenbriar, and the atmosphere was actually good and not geriatric!

  • Made good progress on my goal of ripping all my DVDs onto the file server. With the AppleTVs in the living room and bedroom, it's like having our own private VOD system. Unfortunately, I'm still only on "A". :P

  • Got a bootleg of my new favorite movie on my iPhone.

  • Relaxed.

  • And finally, caught up with [livejournal.com profile] kubulai after 4.75 years. It as a good conversation - one I look forward to continuing soon. The only downside was it was nearly 2am before I finally got off the computer and even later before I got to sleep. Too much stuff going through my head.
