Virtual Steamlands Salon

I am very excited about SteamCon. It will be my first Steampunk convention, and my Debut as Mrs. .........well that would be tellin' now wouldn't it?
You will just have to come and see for yourselves, October 23-25th, 2009.
The link to the website is in my links on the right.
I have requested a room where we can meet up and mingle at the Con and they offered a small room (40 people capacity) after 10pm on Friday night. So it should appear in the Official Program listing as the Virtual Steamlands Salon.
I have not done anything like this before, so I hope all goes well. Everything has been falling into place in a most lovely but disconcerting way for all the arrangements being made for wedding and honeymoon. I do not ask too many questions, just whisper "thank you" and keep going.

A Dream and some Steam...

It should come as no surprise to those who know and love us that Mr. Volare and I are unapologetic geeks. Our geekery spans a number of genres and decades. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that we are planning our offline wedding around the Seattle SteamCon. Much to the annoyance of several friends and relations, we will be marrying on a Thursday evening. This is because the Con starts on Friday and we will be spending our first three days of married life at the Convention.
We would be most pleased to see our friends and acquaintances who wish to join us there and perhaps wish us luck!
