ZebraCon 18 takes place next weekend in Rosemont, Illinois. I'll be there, lamenting that this is the final Z'con but thankful that I have an opportunity to meet so many of the women I've met on line in my various fandoms.

After sending in my registration, I started wondering how I'd be able to put screen and pen names to faces, as well as the corollary, how folks would know I'm me. As I pondered, I noticed that my mental image for people I've met online is their userpic -- so I decided to cross stitch my default userpic and wear it during the con.

Thanks! I can't believe how long it took me to stitch the darn thing. Just the edging took three hours -- and that was after two hours spent searching in my home office for the materials I wanted to use on the backing. I knew I had everything I needed, but had no idea where. I also had no idea just how much I have in the way of crafting supplies. I still don't know for sure, as I didn't have to look through everything -- I found my missing supplies before working my way to the closet or tackled the far corner where I have even more stuff piled.

I know I'm excited. I'm already starting to pack -- something I normally put off until the last possible second.

It's nice to see you so excited about it. When do you leave?

Thursday night, but not until quite late. SEMiSLUG (the South East Michigan Sun Local Users Group) meets in Ann Arbor that night; I figure that since Ann Arbor is about an hour closer to Rosemont than home, I should go to the meeting and we'll continue toward Chicago afterwards. Chicago's about six hours from home; I figure we'll drive until we're tired and then find a place to stop for the night.

Sounds like quite the trip!

(I had to Google SEMiSLUG! *bg*)
