We're at the dregs of the festival. It's a bit weird because you're no longer running into people you haven't seen recently. Now you're running into people you've met with and chatted with. Over and over. It's a little embarrassing. You have nothing new to say to them (unless you are having a very, very good festival indeed).
I've done all my meetings, and many people have already taken off. I'm skipping the rest of the panel on The Future of TV in Canada (which seems to be Nobody Knows). The awards they'll announce in half an hour or so. The place is starting to feel like a party when the crowd is leaving, and it hasn't yet settled down to the hardcore people who are going to stay until dawn. Maybe half the people will have cleared out before the barbecue tonight, I'm guessing. My plane is tomorrow, so I'm staying for the Alberta corn-fed beef. Next time I'm going to come for a little longer than the festival and actually enjoy the Rockies. I wanna go on a trail ride!
