they liked us! yay!

The drumming went over really well. My drumming peeps enjoyed baitcon. We practiced from 11-3 with a break for lunch and then performed from 3-4. 7 songs in all, I played in all 7 and MCed, for small values of MCed. So I essentially organized a taiko show and, with the help of talented friends, made it happen. We had some glitches, but we all kept preforming right on through them and usually recovered fairly quickly. My solos also didn't suck horribly! I don't think I could have done it with any other people in the class. I think it was critically important that I click so well with Joy, Beth and Diane.

We got tons of good responses, which made me very pleased and I've likely been talked into doing it again next year.

After the concert the days of stress (weeks of stress) and the exhaution of playing a 1 hour show caught up with me and I went complete brain dead.

sleeping in the car was a big win. I was finally warm enough at night. I didn't sleep all that well, but better than I ever have at a baitcon before. And really the noisy owl woke everyone up. Next year I will also buy a more car sized air matress.

So many wonderful people that I hadn't seen in ages. And music... I missed music, despite drumming and jams.

There was another luna moth this year, but it flew away very quickly.

I was really happy most of the weekend. I'm still recovering enough that it feels weird to be happy, so I'm noting it here.

I'm sure there are other things, but I'm super tired now.
