I'm really bummed out that I won't be attending again this year. Just doesn't make sense money wise with the familia and new house. But one of these days...

Went to the sweet tatty convention tonight and actually had a real good time. I got to meet a few friends in person that I've met here in cyberspace, and it wasn't even a little bit weird. This convention has a classy vibe to it, nothing resembling the madness of some other conventions. I'll be missing it tomorrow, but please come say hello to me if you make it out on Sunday.

Wait, that was YOU getting the backpiece from Scott? Right on! I can't wait to see pics. No one will believe you when they find out how fast he is.

Speaking of pics, here are some freshies of what I got last night.
