I'm on the hunt I'm after you

Enjoyed another week on my humor blog? I hope you did. If you haven't, then here's your second chance. Run recently have been:

And hey, how about some after-closing Anthrohio 2017 pictures? I mean for a change of pace.

The final Big Con Schedule Poster, with amendments, particularly the addition of bunny_hugger's events (at the bottom). Also added: a ``Love The Skin You're In'' panel, a comedy show, and something else was changed to a charity ``Whose Lion Is It Anyway''.

The swimming pool! Which, as traditional, we thought we'd maybe get to at some point and then we failed to, possibly not even bringing our swimsuits because we always forget our swimsuits.

The front desk of the hotel, which we knew would soon be lost to time. We were never there much, but it was always the start of our Morphicon/Anthrohio weekend. Well, that and scraping the car's bumper on the too-steep pavement skirt pulling into the parking lot.

A look inside the Connections Cafe, where we never ate, but where once I actually encountered a normal, non-con-affiliated woman who knew what coatis were and even had a picture on her phone somewhere.

Another view of the Connections Cafe featuring a secret selfie of me and bunny_hugger.

Con Suite/Hospitality being put away, and remade as the Dead Dog Dance. Want a couple leftover bags of unpopular-flavor potato chips with some mustard? This is your place.


Trivia: The note Abraham Lincoln wrote in November 1863 specifying the starting point for the Union Pacific Railroad (``the western boundary of Iowa as lies between the North and South boundaries of the United States township, within which the City of Omaha is situated'') was photographed in 1874 to serve as evidence in court in a lawsuit over the railroad's eastern terminus.

Currently Reading: The Friendly Orange Glow: The Untold Story of the PLATO System and the Dawn of Cyberculture, Brian Dear. Oh. Yeah, when Apple Of The 80s is making more and more consistently good product-placement, marketing, and price-point decisions than you are you're in a lot of trouble. The only thing worse than being beaten by the smart marketing of Apple Of The 80s is being beaten by the smart marketing of Apple Of The 90s.
