Unfortunately, the first day is the day that I both sell and buy a house. Whee, paperwork, super cleaning, and painting during the rest of the weekend.
At the second 4th St., I overheard someone explaining that it wasn't as good as in the Good Old Days.
CONvergence beat that record -- apparently, people complained that the FIRST one wasn't as good as in the Good Old Days. The concom had said it would be like the Good Old Minicons (not to be confused with the Minicon concom's Good Old Minicons), and some people thought this was a promise to have everything in exactly the same place and otherwise exactly alike.
Were these the Good Old Days of the 2009 4th Street, or the Good Old Days of 4th Street in the 90s? (I wasn't at the ones in the 90s. I did think the 2009 convention was better than the 2010, but I'll be at the 2011 one regardless!)
And lo, I use my icon which is titled "Fourth Street 09".
The Good Old Days of the original, very first 4th St.
You're adorable. :D
I would like to go, but you know how it is. Enjoy it extra for me! Make somebody do a really horrible raunchy joke in my honour.
I can think of possibly one or two people who might be willing to make a joke that was not entirely on-color. I mean. Maybe.
See? You're so resourceful! ;)
Ya know.. if you'd be interested in being on the concom, I know people who know people.. :)
I suspect that this is pretty much exactly the same as the Chelles Don't Run Roleplaying Games rule I made a few years back.
(The kind of games to which I'm referring are the ones that run online, 24/7, and involve a lot of world-building, directing other volunteer staff, secretarial duties, web design duties, and herding/moderating/managing/babysitting about a hundred players.)

Very similar rule, yes.
I am extremely grateful to conrunners, and I am willing to be helpful to them in carefully specified detail when I am able, because circumscribed help is possible. But commitment to larger/less carefully circumscribed sets of duties is beyond my abilities just now.
Good deal; we will hope there is one and hope to see you there.
Unfortunately the timing just doesn't work for me this year, alas and woe is me.
It's a bit of a trek for you!
I was hoping that it would fit in with an academic conference I'm attending, but it's just not going to work.
We'll miss you. (Although I personally will only miss you until September, if I have my calendar right, and then I'll be glad to see you again.)
Oh no, I will miss you and your lovely outfits and lovely perspectives so much! They were my favorite part of last year's (my first) 4th Street.
I just thought I should let you know that even after seeing Thor and the movies this weekend (or especially after seeing Thor this weekend) you are still my favorite Valkyrie.
It look likes we have a go, Houston! (I just need to register.)
Thanks for poking me about it. :)
