Woke up, got out of bed, dragged a comb across my head. Breakfast with the Wordos, or at least a significant subset thereof. Crashed a panel on Writers of the Future. Did time at the autographing tables. Did a reading, of "Hard Times in the State of Nature" and "The Philosopher Clown" Tangent Online review ], from The River Knows Its Own Wheatland Press ]. Had a quick lunch, then did the Writers' Workshop, then met up briefly with jeffsoesbe in the bar for a good chat on writing, then ran the Petrey Auction with Jerry Kaufman, did a panel on Ethics in Publishing, grabbed a quick dinner, the went on stage for "Whose Line Is It, Anyway" with madrobins and a couple of other lunatics. Followed by partying with folks too numerous to mention, assuming I can unwind my head enough to recollect. Surely there will be more photos to follow.

I have no voice today1, lasirenadolce is on the verge of being rather sick, and we're about to get on a plane to Texas with the_child. Just another day in the life of the working writer, I guess.

1: Important safety tip. Spending 3+ hours of time in the middle of an otherwise crowded Con day being a front man is hard on the voice. Not to mention being the everything else.

Get Airborne. Take it, two or three times a day while traveling.

It's great fizzy tablets you dissolve in water. If you put it in hot water, it's amusing to watch.

I laughed myself into an asthma attack at Whose Line.

Nice work, sir. :)

You're impression for the 1st Whose Line sketch was hilarious, but if you could have worked in environmentalists, that would have pushed it over the top.

Also, circa 4:30 picking up a friend to drive her home, some people were discussing Mainspring in the lobby.
