From ICON to Post-Con
What an amazing weekend. ICON was the first convention we ever played at and it still holds a place in our hearts. All the people up there are just wonderful and we had loads of fun. It is odd that such a great weekend started with a day of problems.

Due to a clerical error, and yes it was actually my fault, we missed our flight so we had to take a later flight which meant two things occurred.

1. We didn't get to set up our table on Friday since we didn't get in till 10pm.
2. I didn't get to play Celebrity Poker with the media guests.

Now the second one really disturbs me since they were playing Texas Hold-em and I felt I had a responsibility to show that Texas was in the name for a reason. Ah well... as Whittier said, "Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, it might have been." But I wanted to play poker with Peter Jurasik from Babylon 5!!!!! Sometimes poetry fails to capture the disappointment.

Everything else was great though. The shows were some of the silliest we have ever had. I do though wish that everyone would stop suggesting hedgehogs for Ducats every time!!! I may have to institute a ban here.. *grin* We had so much fun playing music and jamming with Emerald Rose at the hotel Sunday night. Great bunch of guys. To let everyone know, I am working on more gigs up there so stay tuned.
