[conventions] And it’s Hugo day

Yesterday was very busy. The high point was being flashmobbed by 40-50 people in dealer room, all wearing aloha shirts and cheering me. Otherwise, I paneled, I had meetings, I rested, I had meals, I even went to a party.

Today, brunch with my family, one panel, Hugo rehearsal, nap time, dressing for Hugos, pre-Hugo receptions, Hugos, Hugo losers party. Sense a theme? I hope you’ll be there, either in person or virtually. This is going to be a lot of fun.

Then I am going to collapse of exhaustion.
