A combination of drama, NRE and lack of money meant this BiCon was nowhere near as social as I had been planning/hoping/wanting it to be. If you did want to say anything to me anonymously, I have my comment box you can use. Otherwise, hopefully I will be able to catch up with once-a-year lovelies at some other point.

If nothing else, I fully plan to do OpenCon completely differently and actually (holy fuck) talk to lots of people I've never spoken to as well as catch up with people I do know. If you plan to be there, I will see you there and hopefully be in a much better place for it.

This time last year me and [livejournal.com profile] miss_amaranth were setting off to catch a train to Worcester, terrified of being caught out by her parents, not even sure why we were doing this, sworn off polyamory and had never used LiveJournal before.

Thank you, all of you, for an absolutely amazing year.

So last weekend was very unusual. I had planned to spend it with the delightful [livejournal.com profile] rosemary_sweet, but alas she was taken ill so *get well soon hugs* to her.

Instead I had the first weekend to myself in a very long time. I could have met up with people but I decided I wanted to stay in and save money for BiCon and OpenCon and all the other lovely things I have planned in the next few months. I was hoping to be more productive than I actually was, but otherwise it was nice to spend some me time.

I did end up starting up another project, bringing my total of "things I can do to kill time other than play video games, but will still probably keep playing games (damn!)" up to 7. This one should be interesting if I can get it off the ground, a game that rewards you for playing another game.

Other than that, a very quiet weekend with myself. Looking very forward to seeing [livejournal.com profile] miss_amaranth as this has been the longest we've gone without each other in... ages.

I need to write these down before I forget:
  • Raising the profile
    • An interesting discussion on how to spread the word. After how amazing this BiCon was I'd love to help more people find out about BiCon and the amazing community at large.
  • Newcomers Welcoming
    • I don't remember much of this. The most memorable bit was Jonty's "The details of my life are inconsequential".
  • Masturbation: The Great Terror
    • Although the presentation itself wasn't that great, the discussions afterwards was absolutely fantastic.
    • The diversity throughout even the small circle I was in was amazing.
  • Fun and Games
    • An amazing little session. Was a great way to spend an hour and a bit.
    • Being told to be quiet by the group in the other room!
    • "I love your butt." "I love you, but..."
  • SM for SMers
    • Incredibly eye opening, both the main talk and afterwards
  • Carmens Guide to the Bisexual Universe
    • Not quite what I was expecting, but great to hear how bisexuality is being presented to the world at large.
  • Spanking for beginners
    • *spank* *spank* *spank* *spank* "Impressive."
  • Poi-Spinning
    • *note to self* - You cannot poi spin. But at least you tried.
I think that's all of them. They were all fantatstic and I've had an idea for a workshop to run myself next year...

I barely know where to start with the last 4 days.

I have met the most interesting, beautiful, intelligent, creative, kinky, brave, charismatic and down right incedible people. In 4 days my life has been pretty much changed. I've realised I'm not that unusual, that there's so much to learn and that things are never as simple as 2 options, even Yes/No questions!

I don't want to go into details beyond what I'll need to read when it comes to refreshing my head in a year or more. So hopefully you'll know what I'm talking about, and those who don't can just be intrigued!
  • Kitchen Parties that would make a student blush. And tea parties when I'm not in the right frame of mind for the Kitchen. And knowing it happened 3 nights on the trot.
  • Meeting our friends from Oxford. And the train ride home with the Zmobies. And being invited to join a midnight gaming session. And learning there is a rock club in Oxford.
  • Doing things we'd never thought we'd do. And loving it. And being excited to do it again. And being so happy for it.
  • A 3 hour discussion I'd barely have a 1 minute mention of in the real world. And learning so much. And feeling so reassured. And looking so forward to getting more into the topic.
  • An hour long chat about something that would never get a mention in the real world. And learning I'm not the only one. And learning how different everyones experience was. And finding out you can get coaches for that kind of thing!
  • The incredible nightlife. And feeling under-dressed in my most OTT gear. And being amazed at the outfits - not just the costumes.
  • The bravery of some people. And how much I admire them for it. And how I wish them the best of luck. And how I wonder if I'll recognise them next year!
  • Coming home. And being so glad I went. And feeling closer than ever to my girl.
So thank you, everyone. I can't wait to see you all again.
