[conventions] Yep, really back from WorldCon

Here's the proof.

Another fun thing is the interview Laurence Hewitt did with me and pnh at the pre-Hugo reception in Yokohama. Podcast here, and a photo of me being interviewed.

I will post photos with comments later today, images courtesy of lasirenadolce. I'm going to hold off on a full bore con report for a little while, as I was interviewed about this and the interview should be online in a day or so, at which point I can link it. Suffice to say that giving away a Hugo is an awesome experience, and the Campbell tiara may be the best idea matociquala and I ever had. People I saw, spoke to, ran into or spotted in the elevators:
