Laura Glenn's great costume. She was among the first few people-I-know who I saw as soon as I walked into the con. It was great being at a con full of local friends.

The Friday night circle was a lot of fun, starting off as a spooky songs sing-along, and then turning into chaos circle later on.

Due to the nature of the way these panorama photos are put together, Callie magically appears twice, having hopped up between snaps to help Bethany and Steve sing a song.

Songwriting workshop on Saturday: David Nasset, Heather Alexander (wearing a great costume that allowed her to walk the halls Saturday without being recognized), Brooke Lunderville, Michelle Dockrey, Jeff Hitchin. The example song lyric, created in the last 20 minutes of the session, was quite good. A metaphor about a king rebuilding the walls of his castle.

While Brooke sang I Pop Pills, Vixy got the bright idea to take out a prescription bottle and wave it, lighter-style. Soon others followed suit, and eventually it morphed into a prescription bottle rhythm section. How appropriate.

Charlene MacKay sings a new song she wrote in the Saturday Night circle. She has a marvelous voice, and the song was just wonderful. We first met her at GaFilk, and I hope to hear more from her at future cons.

Vixy: Isn't she a little young for her first command?
Trina: Oh, she's been commanding everyone at our house for a long time.
