Minneapolis is a city on the second floor, and its labyrinthine-ness means that directions have three dimensions. (Remember, the enemy's gate is down, I kept thinking.)

While I began to be able to navigate via landmarks, I never really knew where I was on any objective framework.



Also, it made me think of Midnight. I'd not be at all surprised to find that their sunlight is extonic.





Anyway, I am home now. I have stuff to say about the con as a whole, but I think that must wait till I have a) some sleep, and b) some perspective.

There was some *fail of various kinds, and I'm writing this down here, because I have to write about it, and I want to not be a victim of my own cowardice and, you know, speak about/interrogate how I feel. So, f-list, if I don't do that by tomorrow night, please nudge me. I really want to do this, and I think it's important that I do. But... I'm giving myself a day to compost first.

Plus, I think I'm still hungover.

Met lots of great folk! Hung out with awesome people I already knew. Got a lapdance (???).1 Drank way too many martinis. (See above re: hangover.) [livejournal.com profile] invisible_lift, [livejournal.com profile] rm, [livejournal.com profile] miep and I wrote fic! Post-it Fic! That I love with an inordinate passion, perhaps disproportionate to its, er... significance. But so it goes. Hopefully there will be posting (of the post-its? Hah.) soon.

So, more soon. I promise. (Hold me to it, okay?)

1They said it was burlesque. It was not burlesque. On the other hand, she had nerd glasses and purred in my ear? And rubbed noses? What, as they say, the fuck?

I'm very susceptible to this sort of dare. I have
a) post its in the shape of hearts;
b) nice tits; and
c) little modesty

I won't, however, be alone in the house until Tuesday morning. Someone might have to dare me again, lest I forget.

(screw it, the yellow postits picture isn't going up because I can't seem to make it smaller)

I don't know what possessed me, and if I get kicked from LJ for inappropriate content I'm blaming you, but here:

And hah! the image was taken down by Photobucket for being a violation of terms. And yet the yellow postits one was left there...funny. Maybe because it wasn't linked? Or maybe the heart-shaped postits was one step too far? Funny either way.

If we put money in your garters, does it qualify as burlesque or a lap dance?

But yeah, bitches. Y'all have been teasing us with postitting for two days and it's nothing but FALSIES so far.

I am a victim of bus!fail, and was basically unconscious after I got home/ate something.

They. They are. They are coming. Soon.

She picked me up from the bus station, if you'll believe it. I'll go into more detail when I finally journal all of this properly today, but yes. She is not (at last account, being yesterday afternoon) dead yet.

Well. Bus!fail earns a 48-hour amnesty. After that we are raiding your lair.

The interwebz is a hungry, hungry beast. When promised postitties we accept no substitutes nor excuses.

Still, tonight if I can manage it.

Can't wait to hear your thoughts :) . I couldn't be there, but I lurk like a pro ;) .

Great pictures! Really gives a sense of the placelessness of the place, if that makes any sense...

*grins* Yeah, I had to go to the pics to explain it to my partner too. (I was not expecting Minneapolis to be so, I dunno, scifi. I guess that's my coast vs. midwest prejudice showing. It's not all corn fields! Bad Kali, no biscuit.

I'm still percolating my thoughts, but it was a really interesting con. Very interesting to visit a new corner of fandom every so often - it's like a foreign country.

Oh was that what it felt like to you too (we didn't really get a chance to talk)? I was amazed at how they were just like my people...only slightly not with the same vocab or something..

Yeah, there were definitely several I Am A Stranger In A Strange Land moments. I think I may have focused more on differences than similarities though?

We fully appreciate that, from the point of view of the rest of the English speaking world, among others, that the idea of people in any part of the U.S., looking upon any other part of the same, as particularly unsophisticated, is roughly equivalent to the citizens of Possum Holler looking down their noses at the the inhabitants of Punkin Crick, don't we?
