Guys...I had a pretty fun weekend.
I mean, did the very highly touted 30th anniversary reunion of Designing Women end up being "Annie Potts over Skype" instead? Yes.
MTV had a breakfast taco buffet with pupusas, Mexican pastries, fresh fruit, and churro bites.
Churro bites, I said.
There was also unlimited coffee and hibiscus tea and extremely decadent chocolate milk and mimosas and if I were still a champagne-drinking lady I would have made up the entire cost of my festival badge right on the spot. As it was, I think I got about halfway there. 10/10, really great showing from MTV, and I didn't even deduct any points for the fact that you guys sent me away with a hangover kit in a fanny pack.

Hulu had a badgeholder's lounge which occasionally offered a little buffet of some type throughout the weekend. The food was not as good as the MTV brunch, but it was more frequent, and there was also a decent chance you would be sitting near Ron Livingston as you ate it. Hypothetically.
7/10 where are my churro bites.
Finally, people representing the television show Younger kept trying to hand me popsicles on the street. I waited until Day 3 when they were too exhausted to keep demanding that people follow them on Twitter in exchange, because my social media loyalty cannot be bought and sold, Younger.
5/10 they were just okay.
I realize when I look over my pictures from the weekend that the people I was most excited about seeing include Paul F. Tompkins, Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, Jason Mantzoukas, Scott Auckerman, Kulap Vilaysack, Karen Kilgariff, and Guy Branum. In other words, I absolutely went to this television festival...for the podcasters.
AND I WOULD DO IT AGAIN.
Anyway, one of two cats is happy to have me home and I am happy to be had...home.
