Yesterday evening, after changing (partially) out of the Hello Kitty costume, Raven found me here at my "office" -- the round table in the poolside foyer where I've been gravitating when I have nothing else to do -- and I got up and hugged her once, saying, "This is from Lisa, at her direction." Then I hugged her again, saying, "And this one's from me."
There were fewer parties and of lower quality on Saturday night -- which was surprising; I tend to expect Saturday to be better than Friday -- so Raven and I pretty much sat in the Con Suite and let the convention come to us. About 11:30, I realized how late it was getting (given that I was commuting down from Fremont; had I taken a hotel room, it wouldn't have mattered to me) and had to say goodnight. I'm sure glad I had no commitments that required me to be up early in the morning!
This afternoon was the Fursuit Parade. Fortunately for me, I was able to secure a perch on the stairwell between the ground and upper levels of the convention center side of the hotel, so I had a great few as the horde of costumed critters made their way down the hall and out to the driveway area in front of the convention center, where a mass photo-shoot ensued.
Yes, I know: I need to get a digital camera so I can start illustrating these stories.
