Conventions...
Darkover Grand Council Meeting XXVI hotel reservations made--but I don't know if we already have membership. Arisia web-site is down, or I'd get those taken care of, too.

you should have gotten a mailing from Darkover. I got one recently.

Arisia sent me an email message confirming my registration -- EXCEPT they never charged my credit card!! I just found the receipt and my quicken entry was correct. If I was a broke college student I wouldn't worry about this mistake, but I'm not and Arisia is a good convention so I'm trying to figure out how to pay them (that card was stolen & canceled last month)

Not sure what I'm doing about rooms. Might commute to Darkover if I don't think my back can take the hotel beds - but that would really suck. sigh.

Looks like fun, I tend to frequent SM cons instead of sci-fi/fantasy/sca/roleplay etc. type stuff. I've been meaning to go to a scifi con, just haven;t gone, and I've been warned that people aren;t as well-behaved (as BDSM cons) generally.

That being said, the workshop ideas look REALLY interesting.

OH BTW, from the LJ map thing... you're not that far away.... so why haven;t we met in person? (or maybe we have but I'm just so fibrofogged I forgot?)

Nasty rumor

I guess it depends on the convention, but I'd say the two happypete mentions are pretty well-behaved. Or maybe I'm just hanging with the old-foggy groups. Arisia is much larger than Darkover and less focused, but both are pretty tame conventions.

Arisia tends to get a large contingent of the BDSM community I think. I have a feeling thats why its rather.....tame on the outside to everyone else. In the bedroom or at play parties however I suspect people play pretty hard.

I'm a scifi geek, in some major ways, I just never quite connected with that community, not sure why. I think I'd really like some of the discussions and workshops and stuff, just I've never felt that connected.
