Gir!

ONE WEEK TO GO!

Wow. In a mere 7 days, 1 hour and 6 minutes the con suite will open. It seems like just yesterday... well, no, actually, it feels exctly like the 2 years it's been to get this fucker off the ground.

Did I mentioned I have so much stuff to do between now and then that I'm feeling quite overwhelmed and drowning? No. Well, I am. But I will get through and it will be good. Promise.

This week in review

Today I hit the bank at lunchtime to do a deposit for the con, and while I was there the hotel rep called me back. Was willing to give me some of what I wanted, but unfortunately for this particular issue it was all or nothing. However, I managed to leverage what she was willing to offer into something that we could use, even if I don't know exactly quite how yet (namely a free room). We'll see what she says tomorrow. I also confirmed the t-shirt order with Stitch Factory, followed up on event insurance quotes, and talked to Q about what he needs to do to get his art up in the art show. After work I called our Artist Guest of Honor, Joe Phillips, and followed up on some last-minute details, and dont' you know it? He sent me artwork! D'oh! I may use FoPaws to do some iron-ons of it for the volunteers, because it's a pretty good piece. (Interesting side note - if I want the full-sized electronic version I'm going to have to stop by his studio to get it on disk in person. That might be a neat experience!) After that jkustersJohn, Daniel and I went to Darkstar dinner at Fuddruckers, and I was glad to run into Darrel, Rebecca, lenniersdHans & Annette.

Tomorrow I have a haircut appointment at 4:00 (no time to color it this time around - Q is so upset, I can tell), then I have to meet Bill in Hillcrest to flyer around, probably will need to drop a check off at Stitch Factory, and then Quincy and Daniel got invited to go out clubbing with robbie7577Robbie but I think I'm going to bow out because I'll have things I need to do.

Less than a week to go - yikes! Thankfully my to do list is getting shorter and shorter, and everyone is pulling their weight on staff, so it's all good.

And just to make everyone jealous, here's the artwork Quincy drew for our t-shirts:



Ain't he keen? :D
