Of course, there's Katsucon. takayla and I are hitting the ground running right after the con. Right now, I am not only the vice chairman, but director of all Live Events. This is supposed to be temporary, because having both jobs would be insane close to the con. But we expanded our staff before we had people to fill them. I still have months to find someone, but it doesn't look easy. I am not the only one, either, as we have expanded our programming and guest relations as well. Katsucon is getting big, and despite my trepidation, I suspect we'll hit over the 10k attendance mark in about 2-3 years now that we have space to grow. of course, being vice chair, I am privvy to all kinds of news which I can't talk about publicly with contracts and how other people might take some kind of wrong spin on something I think is innocuous and innocent. This happened with FanTek cons years ago, and after that, I stopped posting anything that wasn't 100% neutral, and even THEN I get into trouble.
Post: Julie! I went to see you in the video room, but you weren't there. Sorry to miss you!
Julie: HOW DARE YOU SAY I ABANDONED MY POST.
Fred: But you did, you slacker!
Julie: YOU ARE ALL AGAINST ME!
Sarah: Look who's the Drama Llama. What a surprise.
Post: Guys, I only went in to see her once.
Julie: YOU SHOULD HAVE TRIED HARDER, YOU'RE NO FRIEND!
Bob: How dare you say bad things about Punkie! You suck!
Angry Mob: JULIE HATES PUNKIE BURN THE WITCH!!! BURRRRRNNNN!!!
I will be at Balticon in less than two weeks. Nice segue, huh? I am doing 4 panels. Then schmoozing. Then hanging around ops and being a nuisance (since I am rooming with them). Mostly I will be hanging around Scarlet, before she gets older and thinks I am not cool. She assured me this will never happen, but she's 11. MSD will not be at the con, which is a major bummer as they were half my "Friendtertainment" at Balticon.
I will be Emcee at Anime Mid Atlantic again this year. I was asked back to do Cosplay as well as a new awards ceremony. I like AMA because it's smaller, and less busy so I can hang out with my friends more often. I will also be hanging out around the Katsucon table.
The DC Rollergirls season ended, so I won't be doing work for them until the start of the '10/11 season which probably starts in the Fall. Well, they have another bout on June 20th, but it's not at the armory and I have some other plans.
I will be at Otakon, doing the Katsucon table. Hopefully, Chance and CR will be with me again. We shall see.
