Another good day yesterday. Had a panel on steampunk that went well, then a signing next to George R.R. Martin. See this hilarious photo. I have no idea what was actually going on in that moment, but I look like I'm in extreme pain.

Nice lunch with dave_gallaher and dinogrl, then back to the hotel for my usual nap. (Sigh.) We hied off to the bar, then to a rather curious dinner in good company, including several Not Usual suspects (seanan_mcguire, Hugo (and Nebula) nominee Will McIntosh, carolryles and A.A.A.). Strange stories were told concerning long pig franchises, carnival junk yards and fatal pornography fires, among other thing, Moreton Bay bugs were eaten (though not by me!), I had an odd food reaction that featured undulating floors and a vanishing South Asian gentleman, then danjite got the entire meal comped.

Back at the bar things turned into something of a who's who of speculative fiction, but I turned into a pumpkin and headed for a long night's sleep, leaving calendula_witch to hold down our partying responsibilities.

Today a panel on what comes after steampunk, then the Hugos with all they entail. Will be a difficult but fun evening for me, methinks.

I'd love to see your funny picture, but, alas, I don't do Facebook. Any chance of posting it directly here?

I loved the only WorldCon I've ever been to, and am really looking forward to next year, when I get to go again.
