Note to readers; I was writing actual hard copy in a notebook while I was at the con. I've
transcribed it pretty much word-for-word, so when it's written in the present tense, that's
because I wrote about it while it was happening. Where it's in past tense, that's because I
was writing about it later on.
Airline travel was airline travel. I'll invest in a jetpack.
8-ish: Got to hotel. Ate. Talked with other gathering-goers. T-Shirts from precious
Gathering and trench coats are good indicators.
1: Finally got to bed. On the floor. Still better than the "mattress" in my dorm last year.
9:45: Awake. Went to Eat with Sarah the Great. Found out I don't like Swiss Almond Mocha
We went and registered in. Gotta buy a Shirt. Signed up for Blue Q+A and Clan Oylmpics.
12:00: Went to Sapcebabie's General Round Robin. We talked about UCF (she just graduated
from the university I'm attending).
Waited for more people to come.
Seri Wavelength, Whitbourne, Allaine showed up. We waited more. Lord Sloth showed up.
We started. Allaine taped the whole thing.
"Macbeth and Demona in the Grand Canyon whitewater rafting. Using the words "Bitch, Ropes,
Rocks, Flirtatious, Salamander, Moss, and Whisky"
1:15: Dingy! Out of Round Robin.
1:50: Went to fill out a ballot for the art show. Must take some illegal pictures. Then get
Bought a Gathering T-Shirt and Phoenix Gate anthology.
T-Shirt was too small, so I exchanged it for another one.
Got lunch with Sara the Great.
3:15: Saw a little bit of Greg's voice acting talk. He was talking about picturing the
characters in his head before making the show.
3:30: Went to costume seminar.
4:15: Wrote on the hard copy of this journal. Waited for opening ceremony at 5:00.
4:45: Made a sign for our Clan Olympics team. We purposely spelled it wrong. -> For those of
you who don't know (re: everybody), I was on Clan Chalangd, Part Duex.
5:00: Sat with my team (Me, Sarah the Great, ChynaRose, and Allaine) at opening ceremonies.
I stuffed the most balls down my shirt! So proud.
Vegas sounded great. Decided I had to find money to attend.
Enjoyed the pitch presentations. Liked the evolutions of the character designs.
Great story about 'This is meant for kids?!"
Wasn't impressed by the New Olympians presentation. Thought the design for Sphinx was
interesting. Very Gargish. I wonder why no one on AskGreg has asked if she has some ancestry
in the New Olympian Clan.
My advice (not that I'm qualified to give it) to Greg on this one is it needs to have some
plot rather than just premise.
Bad Guys ROcked!
Disappointed we didn't get to do Mystery Gargoyles Theater 3000.
Dinner: Ate a bagel at Tim Horton's.
10:00: Shot in the dark. We came in last but made 3 tic-tact-toe. Must get someone to
exorcise the "spirits".
12:00-2:00: 'Blue' (why is it called Blue?) Mug-a-Guest. Not a lot of 'Blue' questions. Was
I the only one who asked adult questions (I asked using the tail to pleasure one's self and
where little Oberon's Children came from) or is my memory bad? Probably both.
9:50: Dragged myself out of bed (re:the floor). Roomates need to wash their feet. Damn!
10:00 Torture trivia. Lots of fun. I'm surprised the other teams didn't try to get us out
But never fear! I am the holder of the magic 1up ball!
11:15: Out of torture trivia. We were down to 2nd from last. Saved the 1up ball.
I went upstairs and cleaned up. Had some bad donuts and awlful coffee (mostly water) at Tim
12:00: Sat around talking about commercials with some of the English con-goers at the
McDonald's by the Tim Horton's.
12:30: Came to the auction. Bought some stuff.
I'll see about scanning the coloring book up onto the internet.
1:37: Still at the auction. Going to buy a dangly and stick it to my forehead like White.
Damn! The Brooklyn went up to $26!
Bought the last Broadway one for $6. Probably too much. But I must suction cup it to my head
so I can take a photo and put it on the internet. Which means I need a website.
They auctioned of "The Cell". You feel the tension in the air. If someone had lit a match
I'm afraid the room would have exploded.
$41 for the "Darkfighter" backpack.
Gotta email Rita M. and congratulate her on how well her artwork sold.
2:30: Played really hard pictionary. It was really hard.
We got last and had to allow another team to die. But we still had the Hunter's Moon Dash to
make it up.
3:15: Payed for my auction stuff. Attached the Broadway sucker to head. It rocked.
Played pictionary some more just for fun. Robert was really good at it. we got all the
phrases when he was drawing.
3:30: Put in the minimum $20 bid on the Gargoyle-alien-armor-dune-worm painting. It's sort
of alot and not's Netzumi's best piece, but it's picture I stumbled upon that got me into
the fandom, so it's worth buying.
3:40: Put stuff down up in the room. The I went to attend the radio play. Was wondering what
it was going to be. I know it needs lots of people and there's about 30 sitting upfront.
3:50: We started the radio play. Had to wait for the film crew.
4:21: They did "The Journey". Going to see the music videos next.
4:30: Seen the videoes. Disappointed there was only 3. Apparently the mail-ins didn't work
or some such. Poor Siren. Trying to remember if Nickerous said he sent some in.
Think mine was the best, but I'm partial. Didn't because of it.
Went to A fan's room. Ate his pizza and watched a few episode tapes.
8:30: Banquest is over. Keith David is doing Q+A. Annoying music from next door drifting
over. But don't worry, "Our hearts will go on."
9:30: Kicked us out to prep for the Masquerade.
Gotta do something for it next year. Severius or Owen?
9:50: Masquerade's getting going. Lots of people in costumes who don't seem to be in the
contest. I wonder if the full body gargoyle guy scared them off.
Costumes were great. Ran out of pictures on my camera. Started taking them with the digital
in my cell phone.
My hands are sore and bleeding from all the clapping! And I'm finding I write with too many
11:45: Went up to Sarah's room and we made "The ONE BOX."
Came back down and took Allaine's pciture with my camera phone. I know he saw us. Wonder
what he was thinking. Will find out the hard way.
But it'll be worth it. Our characture of him is great!
11:55: Came down to karoke to see what's going on down here.
1:05: Lyric-less "YMCA" (we didn't know any of the words so we insert 'something-something'
every 5 seconds).
My hands are still sore from earlier.
1:35: My "I Will Survive" is a hit.
10:05: Sarah had Scott drag me out of bed for the scavenger hunt. Lot of fun. Bought the
knick-knacks we didn't have.
Sarah ran upstreet(and I mean literally mean up and in up-hill) to a convience store and
nearly passed out.
12:30: Saw the Keith David Mug-A-Guest.
1:15-ish: Bought the "Midori' piece I had bid on in the art show.
Bought another T-shirt too. (Later I got home to realize that the gargoyle is on the back of
the shirt, not the front like I thought.)
3:00: Closing. Looking forward to 2005. Registered for next year. Got a free T-shirt.
5:30: Swam in the indoor pool. Feel much better.
6:30: Showered. Smell much better.
7:00: Laser Tag!
KICKED @%#^& ASS!
Glad I wore all black.
9:30: Went to eat at a restaurant called Rueben's. Lousy sandwich. Fires were good. It was
decided that we will do laser tag next year in Vegas.
10:45: Siryn is a mean drunk. Enough said.
11:00: Talked with Lynati & others about TGS stuff. Aaron, Marge, & Greg Bishanky(?) showed
1:40: Went to bed.
7:30: Sarah dragged me out of bed. We walked around and saw the architecture.
Got breakfast. Good food.
9:50: We got back. Ran to the bathrooms.
10:10: Out of room. Sat in lobby and talked.
11:30: Outta there. Cuaght bus to the airport.
12:55: Finishing Gathering Journal in airport. Missing everybody already. Dang.
That was punchy! It had verve!
