I was down in Orlando for Dorsai Thing last weekend. It was a nice break from my rather busy day job, and gave me the chance to visit and socialize with friends. It was also my first time to Florida!
It was fun, but short, for I arrived with unclekage
late Friday evening, and left on Sunday morning. The highlight was dinner on Saturday evening. Aside from socializing with folks and shooting Nerf guns at Colin to see who would go first, I am pleased to announce that two new members of the Dorsai Irregulars were inducted, one of whom was our own toracub
The setup for the "beanieing" was fairly straightforward. At dinner, unclekage
called Tora up front to present him with a bottle of fine tequila that he had purchased earlier in the day, as a gift for all of Tora's hard work at Anthrocon and other conventions. I approached both of them, under the pretense of taking a picture
. When that was done, I moved to the side, out of Tora's field of vision, and behind him. After Kage distracted him for a few more seconds, I snuck up from behind him and dropped my own beret on his head, as the rest of the room erupted in cheers and applause. It's fun to be sneaky like that. :-)
As the youngest DI, we get to call him the "baby DI", at least until the next
person is inducted. :-)
After that, it was back to the consuite for more socializing and fine beverages!
On the way back home the following morning, I took a few pictures from the shuttle at Orlando Airport:

Thanks for reading, and my next convention will be Furry Connection North
, just next weekend! I hope to see everyone there!
