[conventions] Westercon, Day DIV/0, Hour 0

Um, Westercon is over. It was pretty amazing. I feel like I toasted the world. Or perhaps the world toasted me. We eventually auctioned off the Toast costume, raising $51 for the Petry Scholarship fund in the process.

After a series of conversations here at Westercon 60, I am now slated to be the Writer GoH for RustyCon in 2009. Watch for me there.

In other news, today I am going with lasirenadolce, frankwu, danjite, khaybee, SIM, JT, dinogrl, and dave_gallaher to an insider tour of Alcatraz. One of the fen here at Westercon is a park ranger there, and he is taking us in on his day off. That gentleman is a Hero of the Revolution. Watch for some cool photos here later.

Then off to the airport and home tonight to resume Real Life tomorrow.
