This weekend was crazy and busy. Not necessarily bad, but last night I was feeling frazzled and stressed out, so I couldn't shut down my brain and sleep. So now I'm exhausted and I really should be focusing on work that needs to get done. It's just a day of sorts that began with my somehow changing my Prius from MPH to Kilometers and no answer on it in any of the manuals. Luckily Google is my friend and it was an easy fix (because I really didn't want to take it to the dealership, have them press a button and look at me like I'm an idiot).

I want to finish up the fandom snowflake challenge and then I've got a bunch of things battling my frazzled brain for control at the moment. So let's start there.

Day 13: In your own space, write about a moment in fandom that meant a lot to you. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

There are a lot of moments in fandom that mean a lot to me. I really love how generous people are with their times and talents, especially when shit hits the fan for fellow fandom members or just the world in general. I love that someone on our friends list can say they're having a crappy day and people might write them a drabble or doodle something up to make the crappy day better. Fandom has its moments of wank and drama, but the majority of people involved, at least in my experience, are cool and amazing.

On a personal level, I'd say one of my favorite fannish experiences was going to Winchestercon back in the day. I got to meet a lot of fellow fangirls that I talked to, others that I admired, and it was just a fun experience. I wasn't sure how a quiet girl like myself would deal, but I was so glad that I decided to go and enjoy myself.

We had our own Winchestercon here in the UK about 10 years ago (I was the main organiser). It was only a small event, but through it, I met three girls who are now amongst my closest friends.

I'm a quiet girl too. Isn't it funny how different we are in real life? I'm glad you went. I went to the one in San Francisco, but I can't remember now if we had a good time because I went with Lisa, Duncan's Twin and her dad had a heart attack the second day we were there and we had to fly home right then. But I was glad to hang with her as much as we got to.
