I am home. Thanks to various issues, did not get back til 1 am, which is my current state of health is very destructive. I have taken part of the morning off work, though I am now picking that up again.

The Hugos were awesome. My wonderful family made the trip from Portland to see me onstage, along with 1,500 of you guys. I’ll have more to say later when I have had a chance to pull my thoughts together, but for now I just want to thank everyone for all the love and support and good wishes, which were an overflowing abundance.

Also, thank you for laughing at the right places during the ceremony.

Welcome Home! Glad the horrid travel stuff happened at the end and not the beginning of this adventure. Glad the Hugos were awesome. :-)

You looked and sounded great on the live feed - your outfit was just right. I only got to watch an hour and a half of it, though I did get to see the happy fan publisher get his award. All the live feed commenters got sentimental over that one.

Chris Garcia is the Susan Lucci of the Hugos, he's been nominated for years and always lost. He's also a great guy. I, personally, was crying nearly as hard as he was when he won.
