The joyful day!


It was a pretty good night, but very competitive everywhere.

I went to markbernstein's classic comedy themed filk and did my best to stretch it just a little (ok, maybe not very much) I did

Dead Puppies (Edsl, Ogden)
The Philosopher's Song (Python, Monty)
The Urban Spaceman (Innes, Neil)
Ready Mades (Guy, The Same)

The hour was filled with Tom Lehrer songs and many others.

I then went looking for a circle and finally settled in the big room for a bit where I had a chance to play one song, WYSIWYG, and then decided to come back to the room and crash out. alymid has been sick all weekend, and we may take off earlier than planned if she is not up to being outside a room with a bed.

I've had a great time. Nice meeting some new folk, and getting to see some old friends.
The joyful day!

OVFF: Back in Waukegan

Just got back here, so the 3rd part of the trip is over. A nice drive, alymid (who is feeling much better) and I babbled most of the way back and listened to a lot of music (some good, some not so much)

I met a bunch of new folks, a couple of which I definitely have to hang out with again sometime before the next OVFF. Hung out with some folks I had known for some time, but had never spent much time with. Got to see some folks who I haven't seen in awhile.

Sold quite a few of the new CD, and got orders for even more. Makes me happy.

All in all, it was a wonderful trip. Now all I have to do is head back to Iowa tomorrow.

And then Con On The Cob in two weeks ...
