[conventions] BayCon day 1

calendula_witch and I made BayCon right on schedule, about 7:30 last night. Met up with Amelia, radconbob and ramblin_phyl for dinner in the bar. Had passing conversations with a number of folks. Retired to hang out quietly for a few hours. Finally, after being up for 21 hours, I slept.

But I'm awake now!

Today's plan, mostly BarCon, with dealer room excursions and whatnot. We shouldn't be hard to find. Probably leaving early tomorrow, rather than staying til Monday. Expect continued light blogging with scattered Twittershowers.
