TESfest?

I'm among those who are not going to Firefly this weekend, for a number of reasons.

However, I've recently been encouraged to attend TESfest, and am now actively considering that bit of insanity.

Yes, this would be rather insane.

  • It's a 4-6 hour drive, bus, and/or train from Boston to NYC and thence to NJ. And again for the return late Monday or earlyish Tuesday (with hopes of making it to a mellow BBQ in Arlington).
  • As of today, my employer expects me at work on Monday, and that would be unlikely to happen (though I could probably get away with working remotely, with broadband access, if they don't declare a holiday before then).
  • I don't have any crash space arranged, and don't really know who else will be there, aside from my one (so far) encouraging voice, and one other.

But...

  • I need to replace a number of items from my stolen toybag, and this would be a good shopping opportunity.
  • The van has been behaving, and I might could find a few passengers to make the drive more fun and not-quite-so-painful in gas costs... or, I could ride train or bus with others who help make *that* more fun...
  • Lots of aesthetically pleasing people, in entertaining costume, doing amusing things to each other, in one place...
  • And the possibility of new, intensified, or revived, playmates, including my encourager...

So, now, the fun! (Comments are screened, and only I see your responses... I might unscreen comments in conversation, so tell me if you want not to be unscreened.)
