I'm home and bemused...

Hi to all, I'm back from Yaoi Con where I had a *brilliant* time. But my mind and body are fighting the usual jetlag and I'm buried deep under my inbox at work. That's all a pathetic excuse (or two?) as to why I haven't yet caught up with email or posts or ... returned to the fun :).

I'll be back online soon, I hope. Bear with me. I also have to struggle through a Christmas dinner tonight with a club Hubby and I belong to (yes, I know it's only November LOL) when I don't really feel my most sociable, but then the week should settle down again and let me gather my fuzzy wits.

*hopeful*

It describes EXACTLY how I feel towards life today...

Glad you had a good time. I'm feeling rather out of it too, so I can sympathise entirely :).

See how long it's taken me to reply to you? *lol*
I'm still groggy and slept most of the weekend away.

But it was a brilliant weekend, and great fun to see you *there* rather than here in the UK LOL. What adventurers we are, eh? And I'm really glad you had such fun with the SBI.

Maybe meet there again one day - but I might try to run you to ground a bit nearer before then :).
*hugs*

Every time I blink you're either coming or going :)

I'm glad to hear that you had a good time at Yaoi Con.

*lol*
Yes, my carbon footprint this year has been appalling, I ought to slow down next year. I just don't want to miss out while I can still travel, plus I was very timid about adventure when I was younger so I'm conscious of making up for lost time :).

Now I just have to recover from it all and get back to routine...

I hope you had a great time! I'm still here, sorry we didn't get to meet up. Next time, eh? :)

Oooh yes, I hope so. Do you go there every year? Are local? Whatever? *lol*

I admit I'm a bit possessive of the time over the weekend, trying to spend loads of time with the friends I only see once a year and to catch up with the yaoi fun, but it's *always* fun to meet new friends - or at least, new in the flesh.

We'll make a diary date next year :).

Miss you too, my dear friend :(:(.
Only another 12 months to go until the next one *LOL*.

Christmas dinner already? Why, that's as weird as writing a Christmassy story in August!

Glad you had a great time at Yaoi con - I have yet to fall under the spell of any Yaoi, but there's always hope... ;D

*lmao*
What do you mean, Xmas in August isn't natural??!!! And here's me, planning a valentine's story already....*lmao*.

Yes it was a great time. I love anime and yaoi, but it's also developed over the years as much more than that for me. But I defy you to resist the lure of the pretty pictures for long :).

Ah, the life of an international jet-setter *giggle*. And yes, I do adore that icon as well.

I feel more like an old crock who's travelled in the hold rather than an international jet-setter... my carbon footprint has worn me down this year :):).

Here's my new post-Con icon for you to snigger over...
*hugs*

Oh dear. Hopefully you survived!!

I got back home yesterday evening, not returning to work until Monday... and I have my doubts that I'll have dug out by then myself!

That's a good long break, good for you :). It's grim coming back though, I can tell you - or maybe it's just my motivation has taken a dip LOL.

It was really great to meet you in reality, I must say. A fab weekend all round :).

(and I think I found another WIHG cover today, so my cup runneth over...LMAO)

Definitely grim coming back. Ack!

Heh, was this the WiHG cover you found? This one made me giggle:

Arrgh no, you definitely win - I'm not sure I'd have even recognised him with that hair style! He might as well have been wearing a pink wig...^_~.

This was the one I found, but you may already have it...

LOL! Yeah, I did a double-take when I saw the no hair cover. :)

I do have that cover - thanks for checking! I swear, that guy's one of the workingest cover models out there right now... :D

One day we should track him down and see how he feels about being such a topic of delight :).

Took me almost a week to completely come back from San Francisco - mind and body - so I can totally sympathize. But what a great experience it was! :D
Hope you feel like yourself soon!

BTW - loved the pink wig. LOVED it! :D

Hell, I'm *still* coming down LMAO. But it was a brilliant time and I was really pleased to meet you, thanks for making it such a lovely weekend :).

And I've made this icon just for yooooouuuu...
*hehe*

What can I say - it looks good on you! :)
I emailed you the photo, not sure if it went through, though.
I am still sorting the pictures I made at yaoi-con. My camera is rather on a hellish side - has mind of it's own **sigh** - so about half of my precious pictures is lost :(
However a very nice young man with a really impressive equipment, who was next to me in line for the opening ceremony, gave me his web-address :)
People were so very nice and friendly to each other there, it amazed me.

Oww... wait! I think it didn't come out right!!!
I meant PHOTO equipment!!! darn it! OK... **faceplant**
I am such a dork :\

I think I preferred that the first time around :):):). It gave me a very happy laugh during a long and tough day at work.

I love the friendliness there, I must admit, maybe because we're all there with a shared enjoyment of the theme.
:)
