I know one shouldn't go to a con when sick, but I left home with a raging case of chipmunk fever. As you can see, it still hasn't abated:

Brief recap:
THURSDAY
Uneventful flight. Got to hotel. Thanks to Yankees game that evening, couldn't get checked into a room for six hours. Damn Yankees!

FRIDAY
Got all the comic books I was looking for in the Dealer's Den, yay! Uncle Kage's Story Hour was funny. Hung out with Babs and the Tiny Toons group.

SATURDAY
Went to dinner at Golden Palace. Rain started coming down in bucketfuls while we ate, but it let up before we left. Missed the Masquerade, but 2 the Ranting Gryphon was funny. Hung out with Alex Reynard and Alfador.

SUNDAY
Hung out with the Tiny Toons guys. We tried to go to Subway for dinner, but they were out of a lot of stuff and could take cash only. Guess they underestimated the Anthrocon crowd. We went to Pizza Parma, then hung out in Babs's room watching Ratatouille, then my room watching Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs.

MONDAY
Helped Babs & Squirrelly pack up their car. Lunch at Steel City Diner, which is very crowded and slow during Anthrocon, and allows smoking. Uneventful flight home.

Like some other commenters, I love the "Still Alive" and "Chipmunk Sleeps Tonight" ones best. In the former case, the Tom Toles-style addendum is not the least reason.

I'd been thinking about other unlikely choices for the Chipmunks. Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" came to mind. Then I thought of Barry White. Even Simon would be hard-pressed to do him justice.

Even without the cartoon diaries, you still manage to make me want to check out a furcon sometime (if nothing but for 2 Gryphon)
