Muskrat Jamboree?

Okay, so I was not an official member of the Jamboree.  But it was held in Boston, and there were Oz peeps there, and I needed to meet them, so I hung out this afternoon, and it was great!  We didn't get to see [info]cheights who was supposed to join us, but had RL stupidness instead.  You were missed, Cat. 

I did get to met [info]rustler, one of my very oldest fandom friends, the person who encouraged me to write my first full-length fic, betaed it for me, and even helped me get it included into [info]kaynyne's excellent fanzine AdSeg.  Now see?  Look at the monster you created!

I met [info]trillingstar, who's been one of my inspirations and solid supports for the last two years.  More than once in the last several years, I've wondered what I would do without her and [info]ozsaur helping me hold my fandom-writing-self together.  The answer to that question would probably be "fall apart rather spectacularly," in case you were wondering. 

And I met my very newest fandom friend, a fellow Bostoner, [info]hagiologic, who I just friended today.  I expect to know her for a long time, too.  Hate to say it, but you fit in with the lunatics of this little asylum just fine, so we won't be letting you go anytime soon!  *g*  (Hey Cat, looks like we're starting a Boston Oz fanclub, and you've been drafted to join.  Aren't you happy?)

I was only there for four hours, but I had a blast.  I'm pretty sure we talked non-stop for all four hours.  Even while we were eating.  As [info]hagiologic said, it's a relief to talk "fandom" and have the people you're talking to know exactly what you mean, and not look at you like there's something strange growing out of your forehead.  Okay, so maybe I'm paraphrasing, there, but I think you get the idea.  It was a great experience, and I thank the three of you for making it so.
