11:25 am - Minicon goodness
I finally made it out to Minicon last night. I had a long Thursday so when I got home from work on Friday, I crashed and slept late enough that going out to the con for only a few hours didn't make a lot of sense.

Made it out to the con by about 6:30 last night, though, which meant that I had enough time to see a few friends and go to a few parties. lollardfish's little concert was fun and the LJ party hosted by cakmpls looked to be rolling along quite well when I left to go to the music party.

There were a few very nice music moments in the party and it was fun to play with friends. It had been too long.

I wonder when closing ceremonies is. I'm supposed to be killed in my role as MN-Stf president for life, but no one's contacted me. Perhaps they'll forget and my glorious reign will continue....

Of course the time of Closing Ceremonies is in the pocket program and on the website . . .

Don't have a pocket program. 'Spose I should have grabbed one at registration. Oh, well, the web site will do just fine. Thanks!

Hmm, web site not responding. I'll have to see if I can get someone on the phone.

Well, they're usually Sunday afternoon...so that would have been a good first guest. You could have also checked the program, where they were listed.

People were looking for you today, but you weren't around. Laurel stood in for you, I believe.

It comes from years of not attending any programming. If party times were only to be found in the program book, I'd probably have picked up the habit.

Oddly enough, one reason I've never accepted the position of Minn-StF President is because I wanted to avoid having to be "killed" at closing ceremonies.

Everytime I saw you during the con, you were rapt with music. I tried to find you today, but you were gone. But you were killed in absentia... by Instant Runoff Voting. laurel took your place... but she came in 2nd! IRV rules. And you came in first for this year. Thanks minnehaha K for an actual IRV petition with which to hack Laurel to death.

We were kind of rushed. For the third time in a row (Thurs night, Opening Ceremonies and now Closing Ceremonies), the ONLY way to get Harlan Ellison to stop talking was to whisk him off to a book signing. *Maniacal cackle*

Sounds like you did your usual wonderful job with things; handling the unexpected with aplomb. Music raptness did keep me engaged most of the con, I count that as a win.
