Hmmmm. Not that much. Apparently, I'll spend a lot of time in the movies rooms and other things not on the online schedule if I don't find anybody to socialize with. Or I'll let the nice friendly people at the RPGA booth introduce me to Con Gaming.

I'll have my cellphone if anybody wants to get in touch with me. I usually get better reception than Kat, so you should write down my number if you plan on crashing in our room.

Well, I know I'm going to the Blood Drive at the least. I have an appointment already. The two movie previews are definate.

Other than that, I'll see how I'm feeling. Dancing until I hurt sounds good. Bringing more than one pair of shoes sounds wonderful as well.

I never really picked up the nack for dancing. I think the closest I've come is the hamster dance...

Most people don't have the knack for dancing. Seriously.
St. Sean the Amused: parkseanb on July 2nd, 2003 02:52 pm (UTC)
I'm aware of that, but I tend to feel that my lack in this area is abnormal. It doesn't help much to know, intellectually, that most people think the same thing about themselves.

Historically, I've danced less often then I've sung karaoke. Having been to a couple karaoke parties with me, that should give you a clear idea. Consequently, I currently have trouble getting past my own perceptions of my own total inability to dance, even beyond the norm for White Boys with No Rythm. Sometimes, when I've had a few drinks or am otherwise giddy and in a very un-Sean frame of mind, I almost WANT do dance and start feeling sad that I "don't know how" ... but this is a very rare state of mind for me.

Meh. Just wrap it up into my massive self-confidence issues when it comes to making a presentation of myself to strangers, smack me upside the head, and tell me to get over it.

Heh. Well, there are plenty of people who cannot dance. There are plenty of people who cannot and think they can. There are even some people who think that they can't but they can.

I just think I go out onto the dance floor and move as I feel. If that's dancing, then I am dancing. All I know is that feel that I dance ten times better when I'm dancing with Brian. Sometimes it is all about the partner, I guess.

I think this does indeed depend on your definition of dancing. There's formal structured dancing and then there's moving your body and having fun and not worrying about whether it looks good to outside observers. It is completely impossible not to be able to do the latter. Will you look like a goof? Maybe. I just tend to not worry about that much :)

that does look interesting. /me glares again at his stupid brother's wedding.

I am oddly fascinated by the notion of "How to Flirt" being held at a geekcon.

Step One: Tell semi-pretty congirl about your MMORPG character at length.
Step Two: Cry in your (root)beer when wholly rejected.

Step One (redux): Join SCA
Step Two: Go to SCA shindig, make mouth-words in English. Get laid.

Yes, but SCA tends to require exposure to sunlight.

Ironically, I met and flirted with my future wife at a con... (I actually did this twice...)

Go to a Heather concert if one is being held.
