So, confirmation emails went out today for Stumptown Comics Fest 2011 exhibitors.
There is a noticeable lack of such emails in my inbox.
And... well... (*flails*)... Dang. I suppose it's possible that my webhost's annoying Spam Assassin kicked the email back, or just ate it. I hope that if that's the case, the Stumptown people try again (or call or snail-mail or something
). According to their tweets, applicants who didn't get in are on the Waiting List, so it's possible that I will get a table this year, after all. There's still hope.
Until then... I'm disappointed. It's like someone came along and said, "Hey, there are Evan's anxieties about not being one of the Cool Kids! Let's poke them with a stick!" Isn't it great how stuff from four decades ago can still shape the emotional landscape today? I do have much better perspective as an adult, and more tools to deal with it all now. So it will all be okay.
