Anthrocon 2017

7 Jul

Patrick, Russell, and Colleen came to Pittsburgh for 2017 Anthrocon and, once again, IT WAS THE BEST WEEK OF MY  ENTIRE LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Every time I read through this blog to edit this post I add more explanation points to that sentence!!! Best week!!!!! Wahoo!!

If you’ve never met me, here’s a post explaining what they’re all about.  And here’s a link to last years post, another to a link to when the furries were here in 2015, plus, bonus, a gratuitous time I saw them in Australia.

Mascots: including this to remember how enjoyable (hilarious) the species specific talks are.

An anteater at the insect talk.

 

At the rodent talk the head rat said  “Everyone who is an artist likes drawing pictures of rats!  There is no one who doesn’t!”  Ha, hiliarous! He loves rats so much! But then later, upon hearing the story, Katie Diamond confirmed it was true.  Even she likes to draw pictures of rats.

And, of course, the fan favorite, My Little Pony Talk.  This year we won miniature ponies and started a new tradition which involves sitting on the ground and making up stories about their lives.

 

unnamed-32

Andrew, radiating happiness!  The rest of us are radiating confusion (but also happiness!), what is that animal?

This year was epic!  We’re figuring out the kinks, our favorite talks, and how to spend our free time.  SO EXCITED FOR NEXT YEAR!
It’s hug time,
‘mi
