Furfright Days 1 and 2

First thing Friday morning, I dropped off my donation, which was the pair of FAO Schwarz ferret plush toys, at the charity raffle table. Then jbadger did a bunch of geocaches before breakfast. We did Rain Day and the rest were ones that I'd found in previous years but that jbadger had not gotten yet. Breakfast was at Tower Grill in downtown Waterbury. I had a western omelette.

In the afternoon, I went to the "Convention Horror Stories" panel. Also did a lot of fursuiting (in the husky fursuit) before going out for dinner, which was a sausage grinder at Nardelli's. At night, I went to the dance in fursuit. Midway through the dance, the fans in the headless lounge stopped working because a circuit breaker tripped. I decided it would be better to hang out outside where it was cooler. Went back to the dance from time to time but I felt a bit unwell so I figured it was time to call it a day.

Early Saturday morning, jbadger and I went and bagged the Snow Angels geocache. It was short and sweet. Then we went to La Fortuna restaurant in Wolcott. I had the 2 eggs and 2 pancakes special. We went back to the hotel and met up with magnusdiridian at the ballroom for masquerade rehearsal. Our skit this time was a Monty Python and the Holy Grail parody. Also in our skit were Syberfox, Mejeep, axelwolf, and Werwolf.

Rested a while and joined in the fursuit parade. (wore the raccoon fursuit) The parade went through the hotel but it wasn't too long and it ended with a photoshoot outside. After that, I went and had the individual photoshoot done in the green room. I didn't order the DVD this time but I think the photographer will be posting the photos online. Later in the day, I returned to the green room for masquerade prep. Our skit was the 5th one in the masquerade lineup so once it started, we didn't have to wait long before it was our turn. I had a fairly simple part as one of the "knights". I thought the skit went pretty well and we got quite a bit of applause from the audience. After the masquerade, jbadger and I went to Singo Sushi. We had the Love Boat.
