My First Bicon... [Aug. 31st, 2008|03:24 pm]
UK National Bisexual Conference


I didnt know what to expect at all, I know people who go and they are totaly perverted ! : )
I was impressed by the chilled out atmosphere and random conversations that led from 'the crack fox' to 'how to disguise a fart while your shagging' (possible topic for a workshop?).
One thing sticks out in my mind, well two things, but I shant reveal who they belong to!

Sorry this is short but my eyes hurt from viewing beauty from affar.

Thanks for a great BiCon! [Aug. 31st, 2008|07:39 pm]
UK National Bisexual Conference
My memories will include

  • Stuffed lions flying across the room at the ball
  • The beautiful botanical gardens just down the road
  • Bumping into half of BiCon at the supermarket
  • Frosted eyeshadow on a debauched woman
  • Performing an impromptu "Yes means Yes!" outside on the patio
  • All the bearded ladies... so many of them!

Big hugs to you all.

The one with the lions [Aug. 31st, 2008|08:30 pm]
UK National Bisexual Conference


We (that is, mattp, ruth_sedina, flufybumblebee and I) decided it had to be done:
Where can you see bisexuals?
Only in Leicester!
Come to Leicester, we've got bisexuals!
Where can you see goths?
Only in Leicester!
Got bisexuals and goths, only in Leicester!
Forget Norway, Leeeeicester, oh Leeeeicester!
Where the cakes are
and the perverts!
Leicester, Leicester, Leicester, Leeeeicester!
Leicester, we're going to Leicester!

On a serious note: BiCon was wonderful. Thankyou so much to everyone who played a part in the weekend, especially to the organisers for working their socks off for us.

Best BiCon Ever? I Wouldn't Be "Lion"! [Aug. 31st, 2008|09:55 pm]

Thanks for a fabulous BiCon. There's nothing I can say here that I haven't already said elsewhere, except a huge thank you to everybody who made it so special. See you next year in Worcester!

echoes and memories [Aug. 31st, 2008|09:57 pm]
UK National Bisexual Conference


I only realised today just how much the venue was affecting me this year. The venue we used was *exactly* where I dropped my son off to begin his university career. I even went into his old room in his old hall. It knocked me for six basically. He didn't have an easy time of it there, to say the least, as an undiagnosed Aspie. He began to self-harm there, became seriously depressed and failed his first year. His second year when he lived in a shared house didn't go any better and we eventually pulled him out and looked after him at home. He's never been able to restart at uni and even coping with OU has proved too much for him. It's not exactly that I blame Leicester, but in my heart it feels as if I had a normal kid until he went there. And then things went horribly wrong. Now I *know* that's not rational. I also know it's not rational to get upset about it, but I have been exhausted for much of BiCon and I do think it was a lot to do with having to push down those echoes of the past and get on with it. Towards the end I did start getting emotional and talked to a few people about why, I guess before that I was just keeping it all in and that's exhausting work on its own.

Thanks to all who have been patient with me while I was not acting like my normal self. Normal service may be resumed next year at Worcester, with any luck!

[Current Mood |tired/cheerful]

Hi - just wanted to thank everyone who helped out with the Circus of the Bizarre Ball, who came to it, and who were appreciative of it. I had huge fun putting it together (with a lot of help) and I'm incredibly pleased that people enjoyed it.
I'm going to miss having 300 lions and a giant pink bear in my bedroom. :)
Sleep now. :)

Where can you see lions?....... only at Bicon [Aug. 31st, 2008|11:55 pm]
UK National Bisexual Conference


Thank you to the organisers of this year's Bicon. We decided late that we were coming (my husband and I) and I am thoroughly glad I did.

Highlights for me:

Pot Pot Noodle
The fantastic costumes at the ball
Meeting new people
Sitting out on the lawn with old friends and feeling very loved
Giggling like a maniac - which I have not done THAT much for a long time

I can't wait to see the pictures!!!
