Getting Excited about the Spark Mini Convention in May!!!!!!

Sunday, March 27, 2011

For those unaware (who have apparently either been living under a rock or are too busy living to be bothered with keeping up with everything online - note, I feel ya!), I'm hostessing the after-party, and have lined up catering from a friend who is vegan (though she'll cook anything ya want) and an amazing cook (yes, she's fed me before and even 'Yote the avowed carnivore was impressed). It's gonna be a blast, so if you haven't gotten your tickets yet, what are you waiting for? (Oh, and in case I hadn't mentioned it anywhere yet, the after party is free to all participants thanks to an anonymous donor).

    Boo hiss!! I can't make it. Between working the local horse trial (run by my BFF so there's NO WAY to even squeeb out of it) and having that evening be the final performance of the play... I'm bummed. I'm sure ti will rock though... and you know I LOVE Xtine's cooking so I'll be mourning missing out on her fare.

    Sounds like it will be great. If I were closer - and wasn't doing a huge family camping weekend - I might try to get there myself.

    Wow! Have a great time!

    I wish I could see all of you, but I haven't gotten out of Alaska for 10 years now, and KY isn't on my bucket list.
