There are a great many people who contributed in one way or another to this song. There was Juliana, who asked to borrow Gretchen's guitar for OVFF. To free up some space in the van, I took it along to ConText this weekend so Erica and Steve could transport it the rest of the way. When I stopped to pick up Erica and Steve, Erica was running a bit late because of a train, so I had time to sit on her porch and noodle on the guitar that I'd pulled out of the car to go in the house, during which time I constructed a chorus.

And then we got to the con and Bill and Brenda recruited Erica and me for a round-robin concert that they were in on the subject of filk horror, pointing out -- with some justification! -- that Erica and I write a lot more horror than they do. :) Well, I had this perfectly good chorus lying around and when the filk broke up early, I ended up scrawling it out on a piece of paper up in my room. And I had the paper and the guitar out and one thing led to another and...

So here's the new song that I wrote for the panel. I hope you like it. :)
