By supreme Acts of Mary’s Bar, I experienced my first hangover since my junior year of college this morning. I’m not even sure if that one really counts, since it was caused by half a can of Miller Lite. Ugh.
But this… Oh, this was a mighty hangover. Drunc is dead; Long live Drunc.
CJers, check your mail. Eliz has set up a test of the webcam in our room – we hope to have it up here in the suite tonight. Watch this space.
Ah, a first… my first Jade con blog. I’m pretty sure that if I were doing this with a little less YOW in my system, I’d make more sense. Or maybe not. :D
Games night was as usual, in-ter-es-ting. If playing something with the unlikely name of Killer Bunnies falls under the “interesting” classification. Interesting might be an inadequate descriptor – baffling might be more accurate.
At the moment, we’re in the Dark Sider Suite watching a BBC show called Spank Inferno. Or something. The male lead is quite pretty, though perhaps dim. He’s just told a woman she has 4 breasts. She of course is scandalized and he is trying to – unsuccessfully, I might add, trying to dig himself out of the mess he’s gotten in.
I’m not sure I can find this show, but I think I *will* be trying. :D
It seems the name of the show is “Vegetarian Spank Inferno.” I was mistaken. Again. Now, I’m informed that the EPISODE is VSI, the SHOW is “Coupling.” Quite the play on words.
Well, I am going to go back and actually watch the show. Till later, The Truth is Out… Live long and … May the Force Be With You.
aka She Who Has Been YOWed.
I believe I am the first JadeCon poster to post sober. I will probably, therefore, have the worst typos.
The Best Sir Dan Game EVER is Mystery Date. Those of us old enough to remember the 70s might remember the non-SW version, where you open the door to reveal your mystery date. In this case, it might be Luke, Han, Bel Iblis, or… Salacious Crumb???? Oooookay. But watch out! You just might get … JAR JAR!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!! See which of these dreamboats will help you on your date to Destroy the Death Star, Distract Jabba, Organize the Rebellion, or Escape Imperial Detention. It’s, like, groovy!
Yes…it’s true. I, Sithspit, schlepped. What can I say? Mary Franklin seduced me to the solid phase of H2O side of the Dark Side. It wasn’t too bad. But Deet can suck eggs…I still ain’t schlepping for her. She threatened me with bodily harm and she’s not even my apprentice. :-P
Hm…my Double-Bladed Sith from Mary’s Bar is empty….must find a refill.

I can correct my own typos.
It’s logging in I have trouble with.
I was going to make fun of Liz for posting that entry under Dunc’s name but then Dunc had to go and fix it. Stupid
Drunc Dunc. Also, the Lusers are going to SPANK Vegetarian Spank Inferno tomorrow. I mean today. The clock says it’s past midnight. Because we have SPIRIT and CHEERLEADERS! And very possibly pom-poms.
(Incidentally, I am drunker than Liz but not as drunk as Dunc. At least I’m still coherent enough to correct my typos.)
This weekend, many CJers will be introduced to Coupling, the BBC sitcom that gave us Commander Norrington. Those who do not avail themselves of the opportunity to watch the show on DVD will likely be utterly mystified by the stickers we are handing out that say, “I’m Giselle!” “No, I’M Giselle!”
And they won’t understand why Team Vegetarian Spank Inferno has the Best. Name. Ever.
I’d like to give a shout-out to all our friends on the starwars.com boards who wouldn’t/couldn’t come. See what you guys are missing??
Also, Dunc (whose name I first typed as “Drunk”) is way drunker than I am. I will work on rectifying that.
It’s night one of JadeCon and we’re all wound up. We just got back from Games Night, where my team kicked ASS at Naboo (Taboo.) In what other crowd could I say “She’s dead, we hate her!” and people’s first guess is Callista? Who isn’t dead! Great fun was had by all. I love Naboo.
Profound I’m not, but I try. I just downed one of Mary’s drinks in five minutes. I’d like to see you blog half as well, when this drunk you reach.
Tomorrow is the Galactic Games. GO LUSERS! We will prevail; we are legion.
BREAKING NEWS: Not only is James (Sithspit) attending his first GenCon, he has just fetched his first bucket of ice. Life is good. Pass me another drink.
Teresa Nielsen Hayden posts Semi-random bits of advice for writers attending their first SF convention. It focuses on WorldCon, but there’s a lot of good general advice.
Two weeks until JadeCon!
I saw this over on TFN, but I’ve discovered I look forward to seeing it every year.
It seems that Russia has an amazing Star Wars fan community. Each year, they gather in Saint Petersburg for StarCon to share costumes, fan art, lightsaber training and various seminars.
The summary of the most recent event is now online. (Yes, it’s in English.) The next time you’re whining about having to stay in a crowded hotel room at a con, just imagine sleeping on the floor of a kindergarten classroom!
And they just have a lot of heart. Star Wars isn’t all that well known in Russia, yet these folks found each other. Pretty cool.
