I'm sitting in the departure area of Chattanooga Airport, waiting for my flight to start boarding (which it should very soon, as its scheduled departure time is 3:50). Eric drove me to the airport, waited while I checked in and dropped off my suitcase, and then sat with me until it was time to go through security.

This is likely to be a bit disjointed as I'm rushing to mention some of the highlights of the weekend before my flight boards...

I had a fantastic time. We apparently made a bit of an impression, and not just on the half-dozen or so people I already knew who were here (mostly Outworlders people from Atlanta). We got several comments of approval from various people whom we met over the course of the weekend, including one guy whom we met at a party last night - every time he saw us today he hooted at us and gave us a thumbs-up. There was a woman who recognized us from when we were having dinner Friday night in the pizzeria (which is in a converted antique train car). There was the guy who was working the door at another party last night, who let us in despite the fact that I didn`t have my ID on me. The conversation went something like this:

Him: Okay, how old are you?
Me: 41.
Him: What year were you born?
Me: 1967.
Him: Who was the President?
Me: I'm Canadian. Lester B. Pearson was my Prime Minister.
Him: You're a god. You can come in.

(I actually did know that LBJ was President at the time, but I would have had to think about it for a second...)

He later came over to where Eric and I were dancing and told us, "Have fun." We said, "We are." He replied, "No, I mean right now. Hot sweaty fun."

I guess there aren't that many gay couples in Chattanooga fandom? *shrug*

I think one of the highlights of the weekend was seeing the ArcAttack concert. They're a group who perform synthesizer music, with the speakers hooked up to Tesla coils and so it's basically a musically coordinated electricity show. (They were at Dragon*Con this year too - here's part of their show. It's not the best video, but there are others.)

We went through the dealers' room today, where I picked up a couple of books and a t-shirt (like I needed more t-shirts, but I couldn't resist "Salvador Dalek"). I looked for a One Ring to replace the one I lost, but the jeweler here didn't have any. Eric got a ring very similar to my Celtic knot ring, though his was gold and silver (mine is just silver).

And, of course, the company was the best part. Eric has a huge romantic streak in him. The tub in our room wasn't really big enough for the two of us to have a bubble bath, but we did our best... :)

Anyhow, I wish the weekend wasn't over. It went by far too quickly. *sigh*

I just cleared customs at Niagara Falls. (And no, for my Toronto friends, I didn't see Keith. :) )

It's amazing how, just in two and a half days, I'd forgotten how cold it was here. I miss the South already, even though it was near-freezing in the evenings there too. :( (Though the temperature's not the only reason...)

I should be home in about two hours. I'm looking forward to getting some food - they're renovating Buffalo airport and the only place to get food was a little sandwich kiosk. And I didn't have time for food in Atlanta because my connection was so tight that I was the last person to board the plane, and they'd apparently been paging me...
