THREEFOLD POST, GO. Ton of crap to catch up on! So here goes.
MFF: Holy god, this was an amazing con. I really don’t want to go into a full on writeup, but I’m gonna try to sum it up quick. Thursday was the tiredest day. Flight was early and I never got any sleep, so I was a complete zombie until I caught a two hour nap in the room and perked up a little. Met up with folks, ordered some chinese. Friday was mostly just some derping around with other folks around the con, went out to dinner with a bunch of folks. I had a dragonberry mojito there and it was SO FREAKING TASTY. Most of the rest of the con was a big happy blur of meeting new folks (Joey, Kipper, Elliot, Zan, Fax, Firefox, Kit and countless many others of god), catching up with some flat-out amazing new friends (Aura, Dingo, Tahoe, Codex, Thoeme and again, so many more), and awesome, silly little moments that just set my mood to happy for the entire con (like derping around with Gage Husky, having him start following me around and me not minding because he was adorable, then finding out 15 minutes later that it was Aura). The con was the best I’ve ever gone to, hands-down, and the first I’ve come away from feeling satisfied and happy that I was there instead of upset because it was over.
THANKSGIVING: Yep, ate so much stuffing I nearly exploded. That aside, time to be pretty sappy. I realize that I don’t often enough kinda step back this time of year and think over all the positive stuff that I have in my life, not to mention all the people that’ve been invaluable friends along the way.
Devilpony and Kyr, you guys are probably the most important friends I’ve ever had. You were there at the very beginning of my sort of self-discovery through the furry community, and have saved my ass from everything from boredom to homelessness to going out of my mind when I couldn’t drive. I was the best man at your wedding, tomato shirt, crappy speech I choked all over and all. Even though I go silent a lot of the time, that’s not for lack of love and respect for you two, and I’m honored to have you guys as a part of my life.
Kingdom and Foxx, the loves of my life. I was worried up and down that this kind of a relationship would never last, but somehow we’ve gone strong for almost three years now. We’ve had the occasional bump in the road, but it’s not been anything we couldn’t all handle together. I can’t say “I love you” enough to really convey how I feel about you two, and I sincerely hope that we can get all of our own affairs together to the point where we can truly share our lives.
My parents, without whom I really don’t know where in the hell I’d be right now. They’ve supported me left and right, even after the more than occasional scuffle. They respect that I’m my own person, and accept my sexuality, even though they may not agree with it, which is more than I could ever ask for.
Zero, Wolfgang, Torsten and that whole crew, for being some pretty amazing friends and sharing more laughs, smiles and sushi than I think I could ever hope to count.
Aura, Dingo and that contingent for being some amazingly sweet people and even better friends, who’ve done wonders for sort of helping me out of my shell at recent cons and showing me an amazing time. Not to mention corrupting me back into the whole fursuiting thing!
And of course there are tons upon tons upon tons more people that I’m truly thankful to have met. Even if you’re not listed here, I’m sure you know who you are.
THINGSGIVING: Christmas is coming, oh god. Between new car and moving out next year, I really really don’t have the ability to do much present-wise, but I’d really like to at LEAST be able to do some cards this year. If you want me to send ya a card, shoot me an e-mail (email@example.com) or an IM (koebimoonlight on AIM and Y!M) or something with your address and I’ll add you to the list. Please please please do eet, I really wanna send out lotsa cards this year! :3
AND THEN THAT WAS PRETTY MUCH IT.
