toronto trek report

Had fun at TT. Highlights include: watching Allison take care of her tamagochi Lazarus all weekend (she had him hanging from a cord around her neck so she would be able to hear him when he beeped), Saturday night filk, Allison being offered gum by B5 GoH Claudia Christian in the hotel elevator (Claudia Christian, incidentally, has just been fired from B5), the Xena panel (I've never watched the show, but it was interesting to see how intense the discussion got sometimes), seeing Lyanne Quirt (and she showed me pictures of her rat!), getting our CDs/tapes (yay!) from Dodeka. Jeff got home from his canoe trip with "the guys" yesterday, very hairy (i.e. didn't shave the entire trip). He reports that one of the guys came home with over 120 mosquito bites! Anyone having trouble connecting to this site (or my email address) last week might be interested in seeing this article about the "week from hell on the internet".
Today's website is courtesy Allison: Dinokun Page (the life and times of a pocket dinosaur). Lots of info about Allison's tamagochi...and it looks like her little guy doesn't have much longer to live! :(
