"You spent all Saturday in bed? No wonder you look tired."

LOST: COSTUME JACKET

Missing: One BDU urban camouflage grey jacket with a House Marik patch (dark eagle on background) on the right shoulder. Last seen Friday night at Lazer Tag. The jacket is a costume accessory and is also a gift from the owner's father. If spotted, please return to Lost and Found. Thanks!

THE PARTY REPORT

:::PARTY GOD MAKES A STATEMENT

For the first time that I, Party God, can remember, the convention and the party wing have parted ways. The Fellowship was broken, and sadly, no great evil was defeated. Merchants of Diva, Cult of Scott Bakula, and the other "Super" parties decamped to the La Quinta in response to new rules at the Doubletree. They joined forces to create the Lords of the Bling and ran a mega-room-party, leaving wings 5 and 5b empty and oddly creepy. Two parties held their ground, Shockwave (reportedly) falling to the might of the liquor board (note that this is an unchecked rumor) and Seattle Worldcon in 2011, which had good $1 drinks, munchies, conversation, and, for better or worse, no music.

In the interest of non-biased reporting, I went to the Lords of the Bling party. These parties worked in 5b because you had three or more to choose from; at the La Quinta, they were the only show, and as a result had no problem overpacking the site. They served okay alcohol, if you could get to the bar, and their teaser shows had men as well as women but cost $40 to see. They also spent the night one noise complaint away from being permanently shut down by the cops.

In short, the con and the parties can do and have done so much better together than they ever will apart. One way or another, this needs to be fixed.

STOMP

Was the daily newsletter of NORWESCON 31, published as a morning edition. Articles from the membership were pleaded for; the deadline for each day's edition was 10PM the previous evening, or later if you could find the editors in person. (Good luck with that.) Submissions boxes were marked and placed throughout the convention, most notably in the Office and at the Information Table.

Your CAG was Maj. R'ykandar (Dara) Korra'ti, CMMDDRDT. Proofreading assistance this issue from SSRN Seaview Editorial Control Board Suddenly Erupts in Sparks and Flames Lt. Jr. Class Angela Froom Froom McFlibble What Korra'ti. Conceptual assistance has been provided by inexplicable in-jokes, a lack of ideas that make any damn sense, and the rhinovirus. Yes, we need your GPs.
