Officially NOT going to VanCon 2017

Hey everyone...

I figured I'd make an official announcement about this, since a few of you see me every year at VanCon - and a few others very much enjoy my VanCon reports... but, I'm NOT going to be attending VanCon this year.

Unlike last year, it's not because I'm super duper poor.

It's because it's early in August instead of late in August. 

I'm going to be in back east at that time, as that's usually the weekend every year that I get to spend in the Montreal area with two of my closest friends. I only get to see these friends once a year, so, obviously, they win the contest for "who am I going to see this weekend" against Jared and Jensen. I know, shocking.... but  I'm sure J2 will understand. 

In other news, I completely forgot to update If Clothes Could Talk last week. So, I've started shipping away at it this weekend. Hopefully, if I'll goes well, I'll have Season 11 all up by next weekend (along with charts and graphs.) Just in time for S12 to be over and people to get on my case about why I haven't gotten it done yet. :P

For those of you going to VanCon - I hope you have a good time!! Give a "woo!" to eveyone on stage for me. :)

CURIOSITY TIME:

Would you guys be interested if I blathered about my life more on here? Or do you not really care. The old school style of DW has gotten me a bit nostalgic for the days where I used LJ more as an actual journal. And I'm wondering if I should give it another go... but, I don't want to do it if it's just going to annoy people.

They certainly have it at a difficult time this year, and just when I might be going back for the summer too. My schedule makes those days very difficult too. Anyway, hope you have a wonderful time with your friends! And of course you should tell us more of what you have been up to and what you are feeling! Who isn't that nosey? :D

Cool that you'll be back in the summer! What dates? I wonder if we'll be ships passing in the night, what with me going back East for most of the summer. :P

So, that's one vote for me blathering about not-much. ;)

Well, you know, I can't be sure it will be this year but we are all seriously dying to go. I'll let you know if and when we decide on a date <3

Again I say...you'll be missed!!! *huggles*

And of course, I'd love to hear more about your life. Whatever you feel like sharing. :)

Cool! Thanks!

I'll probably f-lock the more journaly-posts. That might be an experiment for now.

I'm always happy to learn a bit more about my online compadres! Shame about Vancon, I'm seriously thinking about trying for 2018. Maybe we can meet then!

Let me know! I'm hoping they put it back to being later in the month. Mainly because if they don't, I'm not sure it'll EVER work out with my summer plans. :(

I'm always interested to hear what you have to say, so...

Cool. :)

I may f-lock it. Depending. In which case I'll make sure that everyone who answered that they'd be interested had access. Though, you and I have been LJ friends for a while so that's not an issue with you.

You're on DW! Adding you right now.

And yes I a super okay with you chatting more about your life. As your LJ, up to this point, has predominately been a SPN blog, I feel like I've dropped off chatting to you quite a lot. Reconnecting is fun!

I am!

And yeah, as I've taken a little bit of a step-back from fandom (though, perhaps not visibly). This blog has become a little sparce... but there's no reason that it can't serve two functions.

I may friendslock more journally-entries though. We'll see.

But yes, reconnecting is fun!!

(Also, I may be visiting Scotland in the somewhat near future - not sure what the trip will look like yet, as we're just in initial idea-stage of it.)

Oh my! If you visit Scotland in the next year I WILL BE THERE. If it works out and you have no objections, we should totally meet up. :D

Cool cool! Hopefully it works out. I'm meeting with my friend this summer to discuss plans, but I don't know how soon the trip is going to happen. I've been broke for so long, hopefully I remember how to travel. :P

And yes, I'd love to meet up if we can!!

Amazing. And I might be coming to Canada next year! Oh man, what if you got to Scotland when I come to Canada? Haha.

Ooh and that reminds me, yesterday at work I saw and order entry for an Alix who spelled their name the same as you! So, there's two of you for sure then. :P
hells_half_acre
May. 10th, 2017 04:44 pm (UTC)
Cool! Yeah, there's a few of us in the world. I once met an Alix who was a dude too.

And let me know if/when you'll be in Canada! And which part!

I mean, hopefully, I'll be all over, but realistically I'll probably only have money for some of it and I'm guessing that would be the East Coast. But it's very much up in the air right now, so I'll let you know when I have more concrete plans. :)

Hope you have a great time with your friends!

And of course you should post about your real life, I love knowing about what's happening with my LJ friends!

Cool! Good to know! And thank you! I completely forgot to buy my plane tickets today, which was a thing I was going to do... hmmm... only just remembered now, while typing this, so you get the realization in real time. Lucky you!

I think it's fine if you want to share what is happening in your life. I do read entries that other people write about their RL because I've read their 'fics or other writing about SPN and I feel I know them a little bit that way. The question I guess I would ask is what's your comfortable level with sharing what you want to share with someone you don't know personally?
hells_half_acre
May. 9th, 2017 05:42 am (UTC)
Cool. Yeah, that's the trick of it. I may do something like f-lock the posts, but make sure that I add anyone who expressed interest to my friends list so that I'm not shutting them out.

Sorry to hear you won't be at VanCon. I understand though. If you don't have the money to attend, why? I'm not happy about the date change. That leaves me with 2 less weeks to save up, so yea, I wish we still had out week at the end of the month. Plus I always had the following Monday as a holiday, which gave me some extra time to get some rest because I go back to work on the Thursday. No time to take a breath once I get home.

I hope you have a fun time with your friends and maybe we'll see each other next time around.

And yes, I would always be interested in hearing about what is all going on in your life.

Yeah, it's just really poor timing. And poor timing + expensive, means that it loses in the "should Alix go to this?" competition.

Hopefully next year they put it back where it was. We'll see!
