NASFIC - Days Three and Four

Saturday, August 3rd

Slept in. Missed the Field of Dreams and the Fantasy Worlds of Peter Beagle panels. Never did find Chris Meadows.

Brunch at Penn Station. We never did get the complimentary hot breakfast which came with the room.

Thorougly enjoyed Tom Smith's concert - was amazed at the many people who had not heard his stuff before and enjoyed their reactions as they heard some of the songs for the first time. I still love Desert Storm. *g*

Wild Mercy up next. Fun concert! Want some of their cds. They did vixyish's The Girl Who'd Never Been too. Sounded really cool with a full drum set, harp, guitar and keyboards.

Got Thin Air signed by rachelcaine and Flesh and Spirit signed by Carol Berg. Didn't get anything signed by LKH this trip.

Was a bit irked that they changed the rules on the art action. Original rules were that things would go to auction only after 4 bids had been made on an item. It was changed on Saturday to an item would go to auction after two bids. Most of the items I had bid on had two bids, but not four. I didn't want to deal with the auction, and I didn't want the items that bad, so I bailed.

Dinner at Ruby Tuesday's. Saw Miles - a quick hi and that was it. Kev didn't know that Ruby Tuesday was a Rolling Stones' song. Oy. I was very disappointed with my chicken pot pie. To my understanding, chicken pot pie is a *PIE* not dried chicken goop plopped on a popover. There is a filk in this somewhere - I will work on it. Salad bar was not kept up either.

Read Flesh and Spirit until 4:15am...

Sunday, August 4th

Did one last trip through the Dealers' Room and Art Show.

Thus ends my first NASFIC.
