TNG3 after a day of work and sleep...

I'm still not entirely ready to jump into my own full description of the weekend. But, I'll make some quick summaries.

- All in all, I think the event rocked. Lots of connections were made, anniversaries were celebrated, reunions took place, new meetings brought happy new couplings.

- Minor casualities, including the quick restocking of almost an entire panel. I think it worked anyway.

- Everyone loved Edge. I am so happy about this... when I booked him, everyone said, "um, who?" Heh. Doubt my programming capabilities again! ;-)

- I did not kill a certain someone who has managed to earn a place in the top 5 of my shit list. He will have words, in due time.

- Gay men have managed to frustrate the shit out of me. More on this in another post.

- I have amazing, beautiful, inspiring friends. Words cannot describe the serenity and excitement they provide in my life. I love you. All of you.

- My friends are also insane, combined with the fact that Muppetness is infectious. I now own a 15 DVD set of Muppets, along with a Muppet chessboard. There were more sexual shoutings of bork bork bork than I could ever imagine.

- My extended family is exactly that. Family. My nephew Brian, my sister Tessa, and their families in kind. I don't know what I would do without them in my lives.

- I love fairies. Lots. Fairies rock my world.

- With all this goodness, I am also mourning a dead relationship. It was good while it lasted. I will miss it.

I am still without sleep, as I had to work yesterday and today. After today it is onward to the next adventure, my Calfornia expedition. I leave tomorrow morning on a 7 AM flight out of Islip, Long Island for Los Angeles, where I take care of some unfinished business from IML. After a possible Disneyland romp with VERY naughty people (including the head vamp of my family), I set out for a 6 hour drive to San Jose.

In San Jose, there will be a memorial for Bear. I will cry lots.

Finally, I head up to San Francisco with the entire family, and meet up with my fairy. And then, right back down to San Jose for the night.

I fly home on Monday, the 29th. On Tuesday, I sleep. Lots.

For me, the weekend couldn't have gone any better. It was far better than I imagined it could be. I had an amazing time, and I'm sure many of us will remember it *forever* -- Muppet SM is pretty unforgetable.

I had one real goal - to have a better time than I did at Second Coming. Good lord, I managed that and then some.

Thank you... and thank you for all of the work you put into the event.

Thank you for everything you did to help make this weekend what it was.. not just for me, but for everyone there. It was an amazing time and in just the space of one weekend, my life is forever changed.

Oh, and by the way, boy do i have a story for you. :)

I still think you need to be punished for opening the present before any of us could see the exact look on your face when you did...

We love you immensely, you, whether you know it or not, made me not afraid to explore several deep, dark, sick, perverted twisted sides. Because of that, whether you "name" me sister or not, and though you're younger than me, you'll always be some sort of "big brother" to me. And to me, thats a proud thing.

Some of the situations this weekend were stressful, lots of wonderful, phenomenal, and just plain miracles. The other thing is that indirectly, you have brought several people into my life that may become pivotal people in my life, and now I can see why going to Ohio was an amazing thing for you. (to brehen, you are an amazingly balanced person, and you radiate some extreme positives, your energy was so....infectious ;), just as a total aside to my comment to Boymeat)....

Family is Family, and the Family we choose is always important in really distinct ways. And many of the people at TNG3 will become an extended family that goes beyond what I ever expected. :)

And it all thanks to you (and luna, and Tower, and others who organized an amazing event)

Don't forget Kate, who was the third co-chair, and worked her butt off for this event.

Yes and Kate, who was included in all others... (as I'm horrible at remembering everyone when I have to start thinking of names and listing ;) I also know Pete was in there too, and Corey...etc.

I am assuming you will be at Folsom. If I send you my cell phone number will you call me and see if we can hook up?????? Or, alternately, will you be at any of the parties?

I will be at Folsom during the day... e-mail me your cell phone, and I'll respond with mine.

I won't be at any of the parties, as I'll be coming in from San Jose for the fair, and going back right after.

I may be at some of Folsom Fringe on Friday, but I'm not positive.

It would be great to see you again in this new light we have discovered!

Psst - I'll be wearing a kilt and a GMSMA vest at the fair.

I can't email you, I don't have your email addy.
But since I can't figure anyone will care to call me if they don't know me - 2067669101.

I will probably be in jeans, chaps and my WA State Ms. Leather vest - and will be introduced.

I had a blast at TNG3, even though I was fighting off a cold and we were only able to make it for one day. Congrats to you and the other co-chairs on a fantastic event. Even though I somehow managed to miss the Muppet porn... :(

Yeah. Y'all rock. This was my first TNG event, and sadly may be my last. I wish I could have done the whole weekend, but with everything else that happened, it was really for the best that I didn't. But what I did get to...whee! And yeah...Edge was awesome. Kudos for getting such an excellent presenter!

Somewhere in the midst of all this your mother was going to have surgery. Is she all right?

Glad TNG worked out so well... I'm sad I'm too old.

yay!
And a good time was had by all - me included!

It occured to me sometime over the weekend that I should thank you for being so openly you and allowing me to find parts of me that I didn't know were around. You have made my life better.

*still sparkling*

I would like to say *Thank You* to you, Boymeat and all the other amazing people who not only organized such a fantastic event but who brought their hearts and souls to sprinkle such delicious after-taste morsels.

It was my first true experience in New York as well with those of like mind and age. You all made it remarkable and memorable.

And, yes, I do believe I am altered, deeply and passionately.

Namaste, to all of you.
