Bagel3000 boosted

@Bagel3000 gave me a damn earworm and now I can't seem to get it out.

Beep Beep I'm A Sheep.


Guess who decided she needed to start making masks? Need a mask? Want to help a Bagel unload some of her extra fabrics? Check out what I've got...

Have a few extra dollars you're just itching to donate? One of our Penguicon members is a teacher in Detroit and is raising money to make sure all of her students own at least one mask for when school opens up in the fall. It's a GREAT cause. I promise.

Knitting is definitely one of my favorite things ever. Working on a Wonder Woman shawl in black and grey, and it's so darn soothing.

146 HOURS of things on the Sched for the weekend. Your ConChair could not have been more proud to work alongside every single one of you to put on the most glorious, epic, historic, first-in-history Virtual Penguicon.
Y'all did it! And you did it in true Penguicon fashion.
I love you and thank you all.

Who is attending Virtual Penguicon? We'll have a virtual Lobby hangout starting at 3:30 EST, and so much more after that!

Also, make sure you fill out the form linked in there!

@Ahuka Also: Let us know if you decide not to for sure. Though we'd miss you terribly. :(

@Ahuka We totally understand! Be safe. Make sure you're still around to come next year. But we'll miss you.

@mwlucas One would hope! I've got my fingers crossed that this will all work out better than "worst case scenarios" that keep running through my head. We've got this. We are Penguicon. If we've survived Brazilian beef, we can survive this! :D

@mwlucas The problem is also that the hotel is NOT BUDGING in the least on the contract. If we have to cancel, we owe them more money than god, whose act this apparently is not. (act of god negates contract. Really Bad Flu is apparently not an act of god)

@mwlucas It's hard to plan for the "or it won't" much ahead of time. But we have contingency plans in place, to the extent we can. Saturday is a board meeting, so we'll be figuring things out then, too.

Hey there! ConCom this Sunday! What with the COVIDS going on, this should prove to be an interesting meeting.
