FRIDAY 10 APRIL 2009 Don't drink the punch, it brings bad things to your tummy
THURSDAY BURBLINGS FROM THE CHAIR
By Becky Citrak, Chair
What a great day this was!
Registration — both Convention and hotel — was busy all day. There were a couple of glitches her and there, but by and large it went well.
Programming was well-attended, as was the Small Press Party. Opening Ceremonies was wonderful! Who knew Dr. Seuss could be so much fun?
Friday will be interesting. Check out the Norwescon Town Meeting at 11:00 a.m. in Evergreen 2. This is your opportunity to make suggestions and throw out ideas for Norwescons to come. The masquerade (Saturday) is always a hit and programming has something for everyone.
Have a great day!
ATTENTION TOBY AND DAVE
Are you wandering, lost without your meticulous multi-page book lists? Lady Jaynes books I n the dealers room is holding them for you.
PERSONALITIES RISE FROM THE DEAD
On Saturday the midnight movie will be the site of much rejoicing as the Dead Gentlemen come back to life (a few of them anyway) and grace us with their presence in Evergreen 1 & 2.
HOCKEY — THE GAME WHERE YOU GET TO BEAT EACH OTHER WITH STICKS
Oh wait, isn't' that the Sunday Special Event in Grand Three. This bit is really only interesting to those of us who like the Vancouver Cannuks so keep reading if you care...
The Cannuks beat the LA Kings 1 to nothing at a packed GM Place last night. The only goal coming from Ryan Kasler, with the assists from Mat Sundin and Alex Edler at 5:49 in the second. Roberto Luongo stopped 20 LA shot son the Canucks' net. The team will next play the Avalanche in Denver on Sunday.
WHAT WILL THE NEIGHBORS THINK?
Remember even though it seems like we're the only guests at this hotel ther are others staying here who may well be dismayed by what they see or hear. Keep it legal people or keep it out of sight!
There's a good chance that this space would be better utilized by something that you pull out of your head instead of something that I pull out of my....ear. Find a nifty little box and give us all your dirty little secrets.
We accept party reports too!
Have you ever wanted your very own Owlbear? Come and be a mad scientist for the afternoon. Join in the ripping and stitching of plush toys. Now with no fee! This event is not suitable for children, especially mine as you'll be destroying a number of their toys.
"Let's kill him and take his toy."
"Do you need to get under the table?"
