Okay, so I admit it. I'm a total con/fest nerd. And it doesn't really matter which con/fest is taking place, as long as dressing up is involved I'll be there. I think that's why I'm a fantasy writer, I love make-believe. It's something I've never grown out of--but don't necessarily think I should. One of my favorite quotes of all time:
"We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing." ~ George Bernard Shaw
Anyway, that brings me to Pirate Fest--coming to St. Louis for three weekends starting September 13th. If you happen to be in the area it should be a really good time. Pirates, ale, swords--all the ingredients for a perfect weekend.
I'm also a frequent attendee of ARCHON and the St. Louis Anime Convention. Like I said, if I can dress up...Last weekend I was downtown eating outside when I noticed everyone walking by wearing nifty little red vests. It turns out the US Postmasters were having their annual Con. Don't worry--I've already reserved my ticket for next year.
