I have plane tickets! For Baltimore. This means I'm really, actually, going to ConneXions. (Yes, I *was* in denial -- why do you ask?)

Also, finished links page for Pointy Stakes. Never want to look at little evil 100x35 buttons again. Until next time. 18 large story archives. 38 author archives. (Counting co-owned sites.) 6 art galleries, 12 photo-rich sites, and 6 just for your amusement places.

If you're a Buffy slash fan and you're still bored after going through all those little frigging buttons, you've got more free time than I do, and I want your job!

Whee! So shall I. Um, you have a roommate right? Because the hotel is full full full.

I meant a room, not necessarily a roommate. I swear, my development got arrested my sophomore year of college.

Yep. Fortunately for me Cin, one of my lovely wives, booked our hotel room in advance. =)

Not sure if you were asking TBQ or me, but yep, Wolfling and I have a room booked. Had that long before I had the plane tickets, because the Wolflette is much more organized than I am!

YAY! Live links!

Hey MP! Let it not be said that no one appreciates your links page. I have been checking on it daily and did a Snoopy dance of joy when I saw it was complete! What can I say, you are my most trusted expert on Buffyslash and I accept no other expert before you (tho a few after...*g*) Great work. Fantastic, amazing little buttons, yes! (Visualize LOTS more positive reinforcment)
Have a great time in Baltimore, querida. And thanks for all your hard work!

Lovely links page babes, and some of the authors are new to me, or I didn't know where to find their homes. I do now, so smut-fest ahead! Ta.

I have a little ahem... thing about linkbuttons. I think they are such cute little works of art, and I'm amused at the detail that's crammed into such a few pixels. I religiously chase round and get the new ones when folk re-design their sites, and can't bring myself to throw away the old ones... I have a little mini-art gallery here. And I do believe that 100 x 35 is the correct size for art now, and ran screaming from the Tate because "its all too big!"

It's probably not a harmful fixation. I mean I don't print them out and hide in a corner with them growling at passers by - that still only happens with chocolate!

Hmmm... maybe I should slap 'em all together and make a completely obsessive wallpaper for slash fans... (wanders away to do just that, instead of The Saturday Chores...)

Ooh, me, miss, pick me.... *waves hand about*

er. i have new buttons. for my site, i mean, in addition to the 30-odd on the links page that I had to make because those people didn't have 100x35 buttons for their sites.

plus, if you do make that wallpaper, I want it. I do.

Hey,

I'm in Baltimore, what *is* Connexions...I'm guessing something slashy, given the website I found...but...

is it too late to register to go..I mean, I live here. It's not like I need a place to stay...but it'd be cool to see some of you...plus...I've never been to a convention..ever

And the Convention Xander/Spike Multiverse Fic got me a bit interested.

I don't think it's too late to register. It's the 5th through the 7th, at the Baltimore Travel Plaza... er, yadda yadda, see website for exact details -- you'd probably be more familiar with the directions than I am.

http://inpersonpress.home.mindspring.com/connexions.html

It's 50$ for the full weekend membership, and as far as I know, it's still open; the website doesn't say otherwise, though I haven't checked the mailing list for a few days.

Addendum -- after checking list -- there are no at the door sales , so you need to contact Martha (AprilValen@aol.com) by April 1st, if you want to register last-minute.

(And I still need to verify that *my* name is on the list, tohugh I mailed my app and check weeks ago.)

well it's official, I'm going..(got an email from Martha last night)

my best friend can't make it though. Work till 5:30 Friday..I have to work till 5pm Friday too. But she has classes till 4pm Saturday...I didn't think it was fair for her to spend the money and not get all the hours...

So, if you see someone wandering around looking all lost & shy...it'll be me.

Oh,, you and me both, honey. I've never been to a fan-only convention before, or a slash convention. I've only been to big media conventions where the main occupation is standing in line to get an actor's autograph or photograph.

I'll be the one with the newly re-dyed red hair, hanging out with Wolfling and trying not to look pathetically grateful to be around someone who's more familiar with the whole deal than I am!

Woot!

Okay, MP, you are going to be put on my list of People To Meet, and the list is already a frickin' mile long, so it's a good thing I don't plan to sleep much the 48 hours I'll be in Baltimore...
