We're home safely from GaFilk. Our plane was supposed to push back at 7, but was delayed until 7:30 because the incoming plane was late. The storm, which we thought was going to hit around 10 was also rescheduled, and arrived about 8. We still weren't up.

My one moment of consternation came when our seat-mate explained to us that she'd been told that Georgia doesn't have de-icing machines. But she admitted she'd been misinformed when faced with the evidence.

I was quite relieved when we finally took off. The amount of red on the screens we left behind in the airport made me wonder if they were closing the runways behind us.

The con. Highlights for me were the time spent with friends I see all too infrequently, especially conversations with J., M., and D. who flattered me immensely. Low points included an event or two that left me feeling... I don't know if it is despised or beneath the notice of folks. Thoughts of the aforementioned friends help me drag myself back from the various yawning abysses of my psyche.

Another highlight was dining in the airport with G. and C. who had similar timing and were leaving from the same terminal. I happily got my fix of the art between T and A as well.

And now, to bed.

I wasn't at Gafilk, so I don't know what events transpired, but I neither despise you nor consider you beneath my notice. And hearing that people made you feel that way makes me want to stomp on them. *hug*

Thank you very much. (The last time someone -- one of the PROS -- at a con offered me an all expenses paid trip to NobodyLovesMeLand, there were 3 instances, any two of which I think I could have ignored, that put me into that space. This time there was only one -- or maybe one and a half -- so I'm struggling hard to realize that I just don't KNOW what was in that person's mind, and struggling harder to realize that even if THEY do despise me, that doesn't mean that EVERYONE does.) I appreciate your words immensely.

What she said. And I wish you had told me you were feeling this way, as I *was* there and would gladly have done anything I could to help you feel less like that. If someone made you feel that way deliberately (as opposed to merely being oblivious to your feelings), they SHOULD be stomped on with hob-nailed boots. You deserve better.

You truly did help. :-) And I don't know that anyone was trying to be unkind on purpose. (Heh, if they were that would make it easier to blow them off!) Was good to see you.

I was certainly happy you were here. I am sorry I didn't have more time to talk with you, but I'm always rushing in all directions at Gafilk. *hug*

No worries! Not a thing. It was good to see you.
