[quote=""Divia""]Ok here's me. The short chick with the curly hair.

It was my first lifeboat drill. I got a little excited.

You realize that you'll now have to drag that lifejacket around the conference in order for fellow HFO'ers to recognize you. ;)

By the way - I'd love to attend but it's most def not in my budget. In two years, though!

Look at you, Divia! You're adorable!

I look like my avatar, basically. Just in case, I'll probably have a name tag on.

Come to think of it, we all might have name tags.
Ariadne, are we getting name tags?

Yep, we'll all have name badges. With time periods of interest on them if people asked.
