It needs to be said that I've been slacking. This community has been lacking. It's entirely my fault, and most of you have probably forgotten that it exists. I want to say I'm sorry for that.

I also want to say that all the time I haven't been spending on this community has been spent enthusiastically organizing a very fun-filled weekend for you, the attendees. I promise you the only thing I overlooked was this community.

And now that we're getting down to it, I'd like to say that I'm glad to have done all that I've done. I look forward to seeing you all this weekend, and if you have any last minute questions, I'm happy to help!

It's ribbon ordering time folks!

We’re ordering from the people at
www.LarsensAwardRibbons.com as we have in the past.

Total order (from everybody, not just you)/price per
ribbon
1-99 - .65
100-499 - .24
500-999 - .19 ***this will be the likely cost***
1000-4999 - .17 ***or this will be the likely cost***
5000+ - .14

In addition there will be some charges for shipping. I can get you exact prices after we have the total. (It’ll probably be about 6% for shipping and then a $2.00 charge for each order.)

Orders are going to be due by Friday, December 7th 2007. I will give you 1 week of leeway. If your order is *not* in by Friday, December 14th, you will not be getting ribbons with us. NO EXCEPTIONS!! I will be announcing the fact that ribbon orders are due periodically and probably annoyingly often. This is so you don't forget. :D

December 17th, the order will go out. Please only order them if you’re sure you’re going to be able to pay for them and pick them up. (What am I going to do with 300 ribbons that say “Slave Girl Leia”?) You can make an order and modify it or cancel it up till the date all orders are due (December 14th) They’ll be available for pick up (with payment) at the con. (Place to be determined.)

They can print pictures as well, though there is a charge to make the image. There are also some things about picking an image from their list of already existing ones at http://www.larsensawardribbons.com/LAR_2007_Website/Designs_in_Stock.html.

Okay, now the important part, orders.

I want the following from you:
The color of the ribbons, the stamping color, what you want on them, the amount, and, of course your name.
Phone numbers would be nice so at the con I can contact people who haven’t picked their up yet by a certain time, but that’s not necessary at all. This year I’m going to be compiling a list of ribbons people will be giving out at the convention (a check list for the ribbon whores.) If you want your ribbons included, please make a note. If you don’t, I’ll assume you don’t want them on the mega-list which will be available for mass consumption on the internets or some sort of thing like that.

Extra note for the Ribbon Game: If you want your name on that list, so people know its you, and anything special people may have to do to get a ribbon from you, feel free to include that, but I’m not expecting that from anyone, really. I’m just expecting some people to say “You can add my ribbon to the list.”

Finally, please e-mail me off list at twoofdtm at yahoo . com.

I'd like to officially announce my candidacy for ConFusion 2008 ConChair. Since many of you have no idea what I'm talking about, you should be informed that Con is many things to many people, and for me, it's a chance to spend quality time with friends, perhaps flirt a little, and learn quite a bit about any number of topics.

I know I have support from many of you, and I hope that you'll all come out to support me on election night, March 31st.

And as I expect I'll be running unopposed, if anyone wants to volunteer for a specific position, feel free to do so in a comment (publicly) and by email, if you'd rather not have the whole world know. Keep in mind I already have some positions filled (in my head) and I may ask if you have other interests.
