notocon comments [Aug. 13th, 2007|06:44 pm]

ok so I don't post often- though I sit at my computer working for far too many hours a day- I think I ought to at least write something more than reviews of a salon's P & L statement- or how to fire someone or placing $10K orders for owners who still do not own a computer- but I digress...

I am back from the big OTO who-ha known as Notocon- aka gather of the Thelemites, add alcohol, stir...and as a sober participant- I was able to people watch, meet my brothers and sisters- flirt shamelessly and have a great time.

This year had it's highs and lows for me-
Lows: being so sick that I missed 2 of the talks that I wanted to see-not fun-I need new guts-
The other low moment was during the mass- I got a bit teared-up as I kept thinking that I was there and not home with my dad- that was hard for me this weekend-
I did my best to be present, and fought my emotions of thinking I could have taken the precious vacation time to go home-

I know - don't call me- I needed a break- I can't work 10+ hours a day and worry- without crashing bigtime-it was good to go-

So the Highs: or the highlight of the highs-
The local group's oasis art show and the toaster-ovens-filled with tiny bits of warm goodness
Seeing familiar faces-hugging-laughing and connecting again
The art exhibit at the Peabody Museum that blew my mind and inspired me soooo much
The day on my own exploring Salem and taking photos-
The giant lobster that I devoured shamelessly on our last night with Robin, Kat and Zack---yummmm
Attending the mass with so many people! I love that energy-
The O Hymen Hymeneaus ritual- that honestly made me giggle everytime someone said it- becasue let's face it I have a gutter mind- immature and silly yes, but loveable all the same-
Seeing the chessey sights with my sweetheart! Can you say Wax museum, witch museum, pirate museum oh boy!
Connecting with people was especially good this trip-
and inviting them to come to Leaping Laughter and visit!
Learning the creme brule was actually on the room service menu and that if I talked nicely to the guy at the tavern he would bring it to me-
Seeing all of the beauty at the formal diner-in tone, face and dress- lovely
The sheer amount of unabashed cleavage-nice
Being told I was hot-
Taking the extra time on the ride to Boston to see the ocean with a super-cute grandpa-esque taxi driver
Lunch with Robin at the airport ; )

So much more in there too-
I had a great time even though I felt like poo
Did I mention that I made a large dent in the retail options of Salem?
I learned this weekend that even in a town known for it's pentacles in the shop-windows- where Harry Potter is likened to a saint- the OTO still stands out in a crowd rather than blends- I don' know about the rest of you- but I find that somehow re-assuring...
