Con Report Part 1  
Friday:

On the road at 10:30. A little later than I planed but not much. Since the only person I had to consult with on my travel was me this time I decided to take my time. There wasn't anything scheduled until 8pm that I really didn't want to miss and check in at the hotel wasn't until 4 anyway. It still took me a lot longer than expected thanks to Friday afternoon traffic on SR19, the alternate route I took to miss the nasty bridge from Tampa to St. Pete. Once at the hotel though I had plenty of time to take a long bath and try to nap a little before the Welcome Party.

The Welcome party was nice. Even though the description of it mentioned that costumes were fine I was the only one to show up in much more than jeans and a t-shirt. My inner 15-year-old had a brief moment of panic before I drew on the audacity of the former owner of my magnificent tail and marched on in. I got a lot of compliments on the kitsune outfit and nobody seemed to think I was the token nutcase. There was wine but I decided to pass since I was still tired and wanted to make it through the Friday night video program.

At 9pm everyone trouped downstairs to one of the conference rooms for the first night of videos presented by Shana:

And after that we went back up to the con suite and I tried to be social for a bit but really was mostly there in body. I have a vague recollection of letting someone use my computer to check mail but that could have been Saturday? Anyway, it was time to go collapse on my king size bed and pull the down duvet over my head and recharge.
