If I ever forget which post is from which day of the convention, I only have to count the mistakes, as the were more and more as Tuesday came closer :D.


Thus proving that DWCons are a beneficial drug, (unless ya wanna spell gud), which free up ones higher mind and increase the participant's endurance skills, and should be available free on the NHS.

Oh, how I'd love for Australia to be closer... Or a plane ticket to AusDWCon to be 100 Euros :p.


Oh well. Start saving for 2017 then :D

I have problems saving for IDWCon 2015 and DWCon 2016 as it is, no use of dreaming further...

Huzzah! All the feens & beors ought to get to the People's Republic :)

But yes, super excited by the theme. Proper rock chick/groupie attire will have to be dug out of drawers/purchased. Maybe I could learn to play guitar? I could definitely learn to play a cereal box painted black with strings made out of wool... :bounce:

Oook!

Yesterday Spikey & I were extra giggly* at Pilates class, and when asked why we explained that we have our next vacation planned, and we're all psyched up about it. :bounce: The instructor's jaw actually dropped when she heard just how far in the future it is, though :lol:

Then Spikey gave THE BEST description of a Con I ever heard: It's like a 3-day-long birthday party! You get to dress up, there are fun activities - and sometimes you even win prizes! :sunny:

So excited, I just can't hide it! :D :bounce: :D :bounce: :D

* We go just as her Ritalin wears off, so there's always a certain amount of drunken-like behavior

I so wish there was a "like button" on here, anyway... Love that you astonished your fellow Pilateeees with your pre-pre-function enthusiasms. And the party description is oh so true!

See you at the Con, shall I bring bananas?

I've booked... stressed already over the rooms. Hopefully it's ok but they clearly don't have enough single rooms... or twins.
