DeryniCon pity party!
« on: August 25, 2008, 02:44:17 pm »
Well, it does not look like my back disability will come through in time for me to go to DeryniCon.  I wish I could be there, and I hope everybody has lots of fun.

Anybody up for a DeryniCon pity party in chat, for those of us who can't go for whatever reason? :)
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Folks...  We may ALL be in need of a Derynicon Pity Party.  :-[  As of Wedndesday, Julianne had fewer than ten Con registrations in hand with just over a month to go. If we're not around the 60~70  mark by Monday, which looks unlikely,  I believe Julianne will be forced to cancel the Con, within the 1 month before the date window according to the contract with the hosting hotel.

I don't know where the enthusiasm went, but there appears to be no strong interest concerning the con out their among the fan base. But we have until Monday to turn this around, if we're going to.

Doesn't look to me much like anybody cares, Melissa.

Perhaps with all the e-mail, bulletin boards, live chat, etc., the feeling is that face-to-face meeting isn't as important as it used to be.

Maybe I'm getting old, then...  Sigh.  Computerized interaction is not relationship to me.  I was always in various fandoms for the friendships.   But you may be right.  As I said, I must be getting older...
