    A couple of times John would say something like "we're waitng on Andy, he'll be back in a minute." I'm going "Who?" and he'd say "Phat" You are so right on that one Phat.

    Did she really use that language? I would have loved to ask her what "those" sort of people look like.

    Oh, yeah. A few times I'd watch someone approach me and take a deep breath, and it was obvious they were trying to remember my name, but then they'd blurt "Hey, phat!" But it's all gravy, baby.

    It totally seemed like everyone at the 'con could be divided into two groups: those who were called by their first names more often than their screen names, and those who were just opposite. I could never figure out why some people fell into one group, and some into another.

    It all started before I left. My daughter lived here with me her senior year of college and would always ask what was being said here about the various reality shows we watched. She even knew some of the screen names as I would tell her what was posted. She said for me to call her and let her know what "those people" are like. I said "Honey, Daddy's one of those people too."

    Oh, yikes. Sorry. I wasn't there as early as some of you, so I missed some of the stories. I thought that the "daughter" of someone attending the ministers' con asked what sort of people we were...My bad!

    I think for me it was someone yelling from across the room (or ten feet away ) "Hey Jewels" and I'be be like -- "who's that?". The hardest voice for me to recognize was Paulie's -- don't know why, but I had to ask him EVERY FREAKIN' TIME "who are you?".

    Oh, and the one time I went up to one of the Amazing Race guys who I "thought" was Unk, leaned into him and asked for my lipstick (Unk was holding it for me). Yep, a bit embarrassing.

    It's cool. We were all laughing about it and then the stories started about what our friends/relatives were saying. Some people didn't tell their friends/relatives the real reason for coming to Chicago.

    I had forgotten about that Jewels. That was funny.

    And I thought Jewelsy did it on purpose. Sigh.
    I had a great time at FortCon and it was a pleasure meeting all of you. We really enjoyed answering all the questions which invariably bring back repressed memories. Ah, well. I rationalize we came in 8th out of 25,000 or so that applied. See you all in Vegas.
