OryCon 33

I went to OryCon 33 over the weekend. I'm always so tired and out of social interaction points by the time I get done with a con that I never get con reports typed up. I'm making myself get one written up this time because I do enjoy reading everyone else's.

As per usual, I mostly spent time hanging out in the filk room with some excursions to other tracks during breaks in the filk programming or when something looked particularly interesting. This is also a commuter con for me, which makes it harder for me to get to morning stuff because I sleep in and eat a big meal at home before I go to the con each day.

Personal observations/what worked and didn't work about how I managed the con )

So anyway, that was OryCon. As with every year, I have moments when I wonder why I keep doing this to myself and other moments when I remember why I keep coming back. I've already bought my membership for next year, and this year I also offered to volunteer before, but not during, the con (with my anxiety I don't want to commit in advance to doing anything in particular during the con so I can adjust my con schedule as needed if I'm having a day when I can't handle much). We'll see if they take me up on that.

Next up: possible December housefilk at my dad's place in Aloha (I'm not sure that there's enough interest, so I need to put out a few more feelers before committing) and then Conflikt in January.

I had a job interview over an hour's travel time from my apartment today and a concert I was supposed to go to tonight (but had the wrong time for, which I only realized when I saw the sign on the door), so this'll be another fragment (apparently, announcing an Internet Project is a good way to make your Real Life busy, which I will keep in mind against future needs).

Filk Advent Calendar, Day Four )

Folks, I had a major case of Real Life come crashing down on me today (nothing worrisome, just family stuff that belongs in a locked post rather than this one), so this'll be a fragment only.

Filk Advent Calendar, Day Three )

I went to Orycon for the 4th year this year, and I've realized that it's past time that I start actually writing filk songs rather than making vague mutterings about doing so someday. Thus, I have decided to do a Filk Advent Calendar. Every day from now until Christmas eve, I am going to write SOMETHING that could be at least part of a filk song, probably to the tune of a Christmas carol, and post it here. If I go out of town, I'll probably either post them before I leave or after I get back since I have a cell phone so old that it actually makes phone calls.

Most of these songs will not be of very high quality or at all likely to be performed. The main idea is to get me working on (a) scansion and (b) writing something the heck down.
