[ profile] jennavixen and I got back from ConFuzzled 2011 yesterday. We're still feeling pretty beat-up from it and I seem to have contracted some kind of Con Crud, my back aches, and I had a little PCD breakdown yesterday.

Sometimes I wonder why I give my time up to working conventions; it is a pretty thankless (other than the general "Thanks to staff") job that we do but I was reminded exactly why I keep doing this. I have fun working with the other staff members and love to see the smiles on the faces of the attendees as they enjoy themselves.

This is the eighth time I've working Operations for a convention and I guess I'm fully settled now; wouldn't give it up for anything. I'd love to thank each staff member and volunteer here individually but I'd probably get slated for circle-jerking. I will say however that my brain is starting to associate my fellow staff members with something akin to family; it's always a pleasure to see them and work with them.

Thank you folks.

Though I didn't really get to attend any panels or events that I wasn't directly involved with I still had an epic time. There was one thing that was kinda stupid though; during SkaPup and I's Rock/Metal set on Saturday night a fursuiter (I know who it is but wont mention it here) burst in through the door marked "No Entry" (marked so because of the audio kit and cables there) and flashed a sign which read "<3 SWOLF" in our faces before running down to the dance floor and doing the same to everyone dancing there. Ska and I had a good chuckle at how asinine and immature it was.
For those who don't know, Swolf and I/Ska DJ at the same time on the Saturday of the con. He does electronic music and I/Ska do metal, rock, punk and ska, this gives the attendees a choice of musical styles to enjoy. Both Swolf and I/Ska had similar numbers each and there's no animosity between all of us and we both work together to make sure each other's sets work without drowning each other out (Huge thanks to Ceil, Fermi, Blackwolf and the rest of the Dance team for sorting out the levels perfectly!).
So yeah, we weren't upset by this but laughed hard at how stupid it was. The fursuiter could have ended up tripping and hurting themselves too coming in through that door.

I also want to give big thanks to those I got to chill and chinwag with, even if it was for a few seconds.

Roll on ConFuzzled 2012! :D

I understand the PCD thing... I find leaving all my friends and the 'Furry Autonomous Zone' a lip-quivering and eye-watering experience... This horse finds keeping a stiff upper lip very difficult at such times.

The main thing I wanted to do in this comment though is to thank you personally for all the work you and all the staff put in to organising our fun. I really, really, really appreciate it. You all give of your money, sweat and tears for us, and you all have my undying gratitude for this.

*Horse Hugs*
