I'm awake, really

Yesterday I went to Arisia for the day. Got off to a banner start by going to the wrong hotel first. For some reason I thought it was still at the Ziggurat on the Charles. Oops!

Still, it was fun. I got to see the people I was seeking, including [livejournal.com profile] rigel and [livejournal.com profile] brynndragon And then went to late night panels with [livejournal.com profile] eisa on boot blacking, and this year in bad science. The latter was particularly hysterical (and pathetic) - it was a year end review of the year's worst offenses of bad science masquerading as good science.

Also, found [livejournal.com profile] anakinarch as Zeetha at the Higgins Armor demonstration of Girl Genius fighting styles. Yes, Zeetha's swords have an actual style that they can be used in, as demonstrated by A. Thorne. Its Indian, btw. And Mr. Foglio came to that, and thus was the authority on the pronunciation of Skifander. Its a short i. Clang!

And now, for [livejournal.com profile] silverhare the smallest frog in the world. I hope Numina went swimmingly down there!

I... I want it. I want it to perch on the tip of my nose and make tiny ribbits.

Numina went well! We are still learning a lot each event about what we can do, what we can't do, how to manage the schedule beast, etc.

:) I'm glad you approve. I wonder how loud it can get. Probably louder than one would expect.

When's the next one? Now that I put another $760 into my car, it might just survive a trip...

The peepers in our backyard are only about 2-3 times the size of that one and makes tons of noise.

Aaah the cuteness of peeper sounds! It slays.

We missed each other. Boo!

Yeah :( I did call your cell, but sadly it was off. And I was only there from like 4pm-1am.
