VividCon Musing

Vidvidvidvid...

Wants I to go to vividcon much this year, yes. And Chicago is within easy driving distance. In fact, if I wanted to skip staying at the hotel (which I don't), I could crash on the sofas of multiple relatives in the area. Not, obviously, at the same time.

But I don't have the cash-on-hand to register now for a convention that doesn't happen until August. Not when I'm trying to save for airfare to connexions, which is not within driving distance, and which is about 250$ just for travel. In April.

(Also, haven't bought maeyan's Christmas present yet. :( )

Wouldn't worry me at all given that I've got til August 1 to register, theoretically -- except for the fact that VividCon has a 100-member cap. Which makes me nervous that it will fill up before I have the chance to spend guilt-free money on the registration.

Anybody who's been before, got any idea on how fast the membership list actually fills up? And who's going or thinking of going, anyway?

ETA:: Whee! Registered!

Eee! Best challenge ever in the last two hours! zortified's 2-minute challenges, which I attempted to do in the iconning medium and failed miserably, are a close second, I suspect, but I am baaaaaaaad at writing enough words to be coherent, fast. A few words, not so fast? I'm there.


Telegram challenge.

Best of all? At 9 words excluding STOPs, you can text-message them to each other. Nodnod.
