[conventions] Worldcon, Day One

Well, yesterday was nuts. And that’s me with my schedule kept deliberately light. Some morning stuff over at reg and the dealer room. Lunch with Steve Feldberg and Jim Kelly. The afternoon spent doing Hugo prep and technical meetings. Dinner with [info]casacorona, [info]kenscholes, his friend J— and Alex. The Liar’s Panel after dinner with Jim Kelly, Connie Willis and David Levine. The Sidewise Awards. A brief pit stop at the Tor party. Collapse.

Today: lather, rinse, repeat.
