Dangit, I think I'm one of the first to get back. I don't see anyone else's preliminary reports yet. Without the scanner or camera cable, I'm not ready to post my humongous post so I was going to read other people's.
I'm still at my parents' house.
I'm listening to the Draco and the Malfoys CD I got. They rock so much harder live. On the CD they're, like, mellow. Brian of D. and the M.s autographed the sheet for me: "Gillian, Rock 4 Evil!!! - Brian :)" I'll scan it later.
So, yeah, there's a con report preview: I saw Draco and the Malfoys and Harry and the Potters. That was awesome. I missed The Remus Lupins because I didn't turn up to any of the podcasts.
I met so many awesome people! A few quick shout-outs: thank you scarah2
for the butterbeer, thank you redpiratemel
for the Femslash <3er button, thank you valis2
for the Manhattan (or was that lydialovestruck
?) and the neato squid and a huge thank-you to sylvadin
and her hubby for the tickets!
I'll tell everyone about the tickets when I get a chance to scan the photo but I will say we've discovered Stubby Boardman. Remus Lupin was there too. I touched his butt. I'm not kidding. Heh heh. Details tonight.
I didn't catch the awesome Snape's LJ name - wasn't on her badge - but I saw she has a site ...which I forgot to write down. Anyway, she gave an excellent, thought-provoking talk about Snape and Dumbledore and I got to chat with her briefly. And I got some pics, including one with her and valis2
's lovely plush
squid. That reminds me, I still haven't come up with a name to suggest for the squid. It has to be some kind of pun. I'll think about it.
Haha, Mum just came by and pointed out what the problem is with the CD: no bass on several of the songs. She's right. Bradley played Bass when they were playing live - they'd previously recorded the drums for the live performance (since there are only two of them). I like it when people in a band can play more than one instrument. I just play guitar a little.Stupid little dork
With a stupid, dorky scar
And it's OK
It's really great
'Cause I hate you
And so does Snape
