[conventions] RadCon, Day 1

Blur blur. Museum tour yesterday, afternoon panels on various topics, opening ceremonies, partying. Radioactive bunnies.

This morning, thanks to some clowning around on my part at opening ceremonies, I worked out with some belly dancers for an hour instead of hitting the gym. Later I'll be posing dishabille as an artist's model. Plus the usual run of paneling and, erm, partying.

Y'all play nice.
