long hair days

Feeling a bit better today; thanks for the well wishes.

Thanks also to those who posted extra info about OVFF I in blatherchat and private email. Looks like the GoH for the first OVFF was Julia Ecklar (I remember this now). Reid wrote and said he also remembers Mitchell Clapp (now Mitchell Burnside-Clapp, I believe) being a big hit at the con. And y'know, I think Allison might have a video from the first OVFF...I remember her showing me a video once of me on stage with some people (Clif? Joey? Julia? MEW?). When I interviewed Julia for Inklings, she said she remembered me from cons, but perhaps this was with Urban Tapestry. Anyway, I was in my "long hair" days in the hair used to go down to my waist back then. I finally got tired of the time it took to dry and it chopped off.

Looks like "Cuz He's A Guy" was aired on Dr. Demento on April 4th (thanks to Eli Goldberg for this info).
