WE RUN ONE FRONT-PAGE STORY AND YOU LOT GET ALL CRAZY WITH THE ROMANCE

We've heard of at least(!) three other engagements this weekend; the only one we have submitted is that of Laurie Reynolds (Rowan Silverwing) and Jacob Sullens (The Mad Potter), engaged on stage at the Fannish Fetish Fashion Show. The post-it with the names on says it's true, and that's good enough for us!

THINGS WE HEAR PEOPLE LIKE

moar pls

A Darth Vader who really knows how to work that suit, and a Padme who still scares him. Go, 501st Charity!

R. A. Salvatore going an hour over in autographs.

WOTAN THE COMEDIAN! RARRRRRRRRRRRR!

USS Aurora commissioned into Starfleet.

Queer Eye for the Broken Elevators. We're a real con again. Brings a tear to the eye, it does.

Canucks over the Avalanche!

THINGS WE HEAR PEOPLE DON'T LIKE

diaf

Canucks folding in the first round, like they always do.

OVERHEARD

"I'm a bad, bad buffalo."

"Why are you taking my horse?" "Jesus needs it."

"Love is in the air, water is on the floor..."

"Zombies make everything happy in a bad way."

"In high school, I was witness to an honorific teabagging." "English boarding school?" "English boarding school." "They don't talk about that part in Potter, do they?" "Nope."

"You get the extra gasoline for gaming."

"Dead is the new black."

"AGH what's that software?!" "It's called DING! And You Lose All Your Work."

"I've copyrighted Zombie Moses."

"They follow me around with tea — and fezzes!"

"Wondertwin powers activate — shape of, let's annoy the heck out of Mom and Dad!"

"I don't know what the heck it is, but it looked cool, so I stuck it on the tip."

"I think we need to coordinate our drinking."

GET THAT BIRD!

Charity Events and Volunteers would like to thank the gracious vendors who donated items ot the charity auction and volunteer event.

Your editor would like to thank whoever stepped in and did an issue on Thursday (for Friday morning) when she was /d/r/u/n/k/ incapacitated. She'd thank you by name, but, um, doesn't know who you were. Thanks!

DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS

...is the daily newsletter of Norwescon 32, and we're doing our best to invent new ways to be wrong about journalism. Your inadequately-supervised editor was R'ykandar (Dara) Korra'ti. Photographs by Mimi Noyes, Dara Korra'ti, and SECRET SOURCES. Cartoon by http://baconforbirds.com and Paul Johnson. I'd be cleverer but it's 3:45am and I haven't even started large type. G'night everybody!
