Well, it's been a whole week now, so maybe it's time to talk about my trip to Tennessee last weekend.
As many of you know, I periodically travel out of town to attend "Buffycons." Buffycons are not conventions in the traditional sense of the word; there are no exhibits, nor panel discussions, nor keynote speakers, nor anything else one might normally find at a convention. A Buffycon is a very informal gathering of Buffy
fans, most of whom have some connection with the Buffy
forum at Television Without Pity
. We've been having these gatherings for a little over two years now, and they never fail to be entertaining as hell.
Most Buffycons have cute and/or descriptive names, and this one was no exception. Since Teleri was hosting the con at her home in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, it was given the name Redneck Con. And while there were no rednecks at the con itself, I did see a few elsewhere while I was there.( Collapse )
So in summary: I had a good time. The only bad thing about Redneck was that there were so many people there, and so many things going on at once, that there were many people I barely spoke to, and many more that I wish I could have spent more time with. But hey, that's why we keep doing them, right? I can see those other people at the next one!
