Unless something better's on TV

Sure I'm doing a lot of writing for my mathematics blog. I'm also doing a bunch of writing for my humor blog. Did you like that? Did you miss any of it? Miss all of it? Here's your chance to catch up:

Let's get back to Saturday at Motor City Fur[ry] Convention 2018 and a last visit to the Sheraton in Nova.

The hallway! In what turned out to be the last fursuit parade down this nice and well-lit corridor in the old Sheraton. I think that's the start of the parade in the far right there.

Extremely shiny silver dragon marching in a suit that must have weighed, I estimate, 860 pounds.

Fursuit parade staples such as cheerleaders, tigers, and skunks playing brass.

The ant guy in his costume, with the nice sugar-cube backpack that really, really works. And yes, of course the anteater follows. You have to do that sort of thing or else people get all nervous.

bunny_hugger making her way even though the parade does its best to lose her. (She can see roughly a thumbnail-size image of blurry shapes throug her head so anyone walking at anything but a very uniform pace is losing her.)

The parade gathered on the hill outside, ready for the fursuit group photograph.

And here's bunny_hugger, up way high but near enough several raccoons to stand out.

Bit of a broader view of the fursuiters ready to be photographed.

The other end of the fursuiters gathered on the hill.

bunny_hugger in her natural habitat, somehow just behind people wearing taller suits.

And here's who's doing the photography. The guy with the ladder is doing the convention's official photo.

I don't actually know whether they're also part of the official convention photography or whether they just know who to ask to photograph from atop the hotel.

PS: My 2019 Mathematics A To Z: Fourier series, where I go nearly a thousand words without saying ``sine'' or ``cosine''. Good luck figuring that one out!
