Faith In Me (John/Aeryn)

I don't want the Con to be over!

[personal profile] catherinebruce and I made it back safely from the con last night. After we got off the plane we ate dinner at the hotel next to the airport because neither of us had anything really to eat during the day because our flights were waaaay too early.

The last night hanging out in the lobby was both fun and not without a lot of tears from a great many people, myself included (not that is a surprise from those that know me).

It was bittersweet to see so many people I've counted as friends over the years and knowing it may be the last I'll ever get to see them in person. :p

But I will summarize quickly by saying that some of the things that happened were: I participated in the documentary that was filmed about fandom (I was interviewed for a section on vidders), I gave Ben a toboggan hat I crocheted for him and he appeared to like (he told me that he'd been needing one), I (apparently) impressed Rockne O'Bannon with a Farscape movie idea from a contest they'd had the day before (Catherine won) and he said it was really clever he wished he'd thought of it, I made Lani Tupu crack up because I told him that I'd once thought that Emerald City (his manager) was his wife, I made Jeffrey Berman (producer of the Naught for Hire webseries) smile because he saw me wearing a fedora like Nick Naught, I partied with Scapers, and I did a (super) short film of "John and Aeryn" dancing in the elevator at the hotel.

So much more went on and I hope I can do the entire thing justice. I have a couple hundred photos to go through but there will be a decent con report coming either today or tomorrow once I get situated and more coffee in me.

OMG! I Won!

I can't believe it that Like Lovers Do won! I didn't think I'd have a chance, given that I was going up against [personal profile] catherinebruce's vid Savin' Me.

But not only did I win, so did Catherine, and Angel of Moya (she submitted her video 'Nobody's Listening').

I also won the trivia contest with two other ladies (CameraScaper and Sheena). Not even the infamous Froon could stop us from the potential of swag. *bounce*

I'll have a full report soon but I'll just say that today was exhausting and Ben was beautiful and he cried and almost got all of us to crying and I was able to ask the final question at his panel. *wimper*

Arrived in LA

I actually got here around noon. Met many Scapers already. *sigh* Feels like I'm home. [personal profile] catherinebruce and [profile] avenuepotter are due to arrive around 10:30am. Had a lovely dinner with Ninja007 and Frellnik and found out from Velva Cater of Gypsy Productions that I'll have my first taste of a make up person before I'm filmed for her documentary on fans (there's a special section being filmed about vidders). Someone she was speaking with asked for my contact info for possible editing work after seeing a couple of my videos.

I need to create a spirit badge for [profile] wishkey in the morning before the official start of the con.

Now after only having a total of 3 hours sleep in the last 50 hours and too many white russians I'm heading off to bed for the evening.
