Arcanacon, here I come...

Well, that was good news.

I just decided to have a look at prices for flights down to Melbourne for next years Arcanacon. My intention was to fly down the day before (Wednesday the 24th of January) and stay until the Wednesday afterwards (the 31st).

Flights have just been booked, for $91 each way! $182 total for down and back. Woot! I'm happy.

Cheap flights
That's pretty good considering you're still in 'peak-season' travel. Anything after January is considered 'shoulder' season and April - October down south is 'off-peak'.

At least, it was last time I looked.

Which airline?

Re: Cheap flights
Virgin Blue.

I very rarely fly Qantas anymore, not through any brand loyalty of anything, but simply because Virgin tends to be cheaper.

I find booking two or three months out from the travel times I can get some really good prices, especially if I'm traveling mid week.

That's pretty darn good. I should look into it myself, since I'll actually have something approximating a budget for this Con.

My advice is book sooner rather than later. The later you leave it, the more expensive they will be.

Yay! I get to see "The Hair" again! :)

And I get to see the...umm..."The Waistcoat"

And perhaps you'll even get to meet my other half, leminkainen. I'm dragging her along to prove that all you awesome people exist, and that she wants to move to Melbourne to be closer to them like I do.

I wonder why they pick the same weekend as Cancon??

Deliberate choice.

Cancon is a miniatures convention with a little bit of roleplaying, while Arcanacon is a roleplaying convention with a little bit of miniatures.

That way the two compliment each other, and people go to whichever one works best for them.

But if Arcanacon would pick a different weekend I'd probably go to that as well, but Cancon has been going for a good 25+ years, so the Australia Day weekend is always sacred & not to be interferred with by other cons :)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
