Being Sick this Weekend and Encountering the Taylor Swift Guy...
I ended up being at CTN-X this weekend for a total of maybe 3 hours. Much of that time was spent sitting at a table at the bar, nursing a mug of tea in a near catatonic state. Basically I came down with some cold or flu almost immediately after I arrived on Saturday afternoon, and when I woke up Sunday morning I was feeling too terrible to go back.
