Back from Furry Fiesta! - The online computery journal thingy of a turtle

05:07 pm - Back from Furry Fiesta!
Report in brief:
THURSDAY - Reached Dallas around 6 p.m. A bunch of us went to Jake's Burgers for dinner. Let Draconis sleep in my room, which had a really dim light in the bathroom.
FRIDAY - Noticed that we would be sharing space with some orthodontists. Tables laid out with dental tools and false teeth for sale. Bought some teeth. No, not really. :} Heard during Opening Ceremonies that Furp was killed in an accident. Dammit, he was a cool guy. Later, a bunch of us went to Texas de Brazil for unlimited meat. Ate my fill of sirloin & lamb & other stuff.
SATURDAY - Bathroom light finally burned out. Took about half an hour getting the fix-it guy to come and fix it. Saw the Fursuit Improv show, to which I contributed three random sentences: "Whose turn is it to polish the ceiling?" "Mmm boy, do I love sushi!" "My head is encased in concrete!" Did an art trade with Portzebie from FurAffinity. Ate too much fried rice at Jasmine. Sat in a circle with other artists, drew stuff, and watched Colley's hat get snatched. Peeked in on the Sub Level 03 show and discovered that my bright green laser pointer made a great rave toy. (Don't worry, I only pointed it at the floor. Okay, and the ceiling a few times.)
SUNDAY - Went to Corsi's What The Filk panel. Learned the distinction between filk and parody. (Basically, a humorous filk is a parody, while a non-humorous filk isn't.) Listened to Razzek from DeviantArt, who is legally blind, talk about her pet cause, which is accessibility and education for the blind. Ate *not* too much stirfry at Genghis Grill. Joined a game of Apples to Apples, which got sillier and drunker as the night wore on. Adolf Hitler is not horrifying, babies are juicy, oxygen is obnoxious (but not enough) and Corsi's tits are scenic.
MONDAY - Headed out. Noticed two billboards in the Dallas area: "94.9 The KLTY - Safe for the entire family." "97.1 The Eagle Rocks - *Not* safe for the entire family!" Drove home.
