AHHHH reading this makes me so "homesick" for Chicago Fest! Because you know if you're a regular, it does feel like home. :) I went for about 6-7 years straight, and haven't been back in....gosh 6 years already. I went a few years back to the first Vegas one, but Chicago's crowd is so fun and crazy, and there is something nice about knowing where everything is, and the best time to go shopping, video room, knowing you can always get a slice of giant somewhat disgusting pizza, etc. I toyed with going back this year and then got pregnant last summer and having a newborn makes it a hard thing to pull off. I am hoping next year I can get back, and take my hubby who has never been.

Hope everyone has a SPLENDID time and please, say hi to the people under the stairs and keep a seat warm for me!

I'll be wearing a beatlefest blue thirt on Saturday that says "McCartney Maniac" on the front and "Lynner" on the back.

Shall we meet Sat. 11am 1st floor near the elevators, like we did last year?

I'll be there, sitting with Susan Ryan at her guest table. Come by and say hello! I'll have copies of Strings for sale and my new Fab Soap (creme tangerine, grapefruit peace, Sea of Green Tea, that sort of thing). Oh, and you'll have to check out the artwork I've commissioned!

Leaving for Chicago in a few hours. I'll be attending on Sunday. If you see a guy with long dark curly hair, Beatles Apple shirt, and a poison ivy tattoo upper left arm, it's me.

Hey everyone (or, at the this point, Linkers at the Fest with laptops), I forgot to set my alarm correctly and overslept. I wanted to be out the door by now! I was so frustrated that I wasn't paying attention and almost poured my cereal in a wine glass.

I'll be there as soon as I can! If I miss the meet-up, hopefully I'll find you later! Stop a short girl wearing a blue skirt and a white top with Beatles album covers all over it if you see her!
