Back from Balticon

Much to report, but I am safe and at home. I had an Internet crisis I have no resolved by replacing Verizon's busted router with a spare I had.

I'd like to thank a lot of people. First, I'd like to thank maugorn again for the lift, tth and aylinn for letting me crash, ironkite and aurinne for letting me visit, thedreamymoon for being who she is best, and daecabhir and his staff for running a good show. I'd like to thank Paul, Venora, Keith, lohquesse, moliarity, Steve, Tim, Kelsi, and Colette at Ops for letting me hang out (plus anyone else I forgot there who put up with my bad jokes).

I'd like to thank all my panelists, with special thanks to John Henry for his help, Connie Willis for being a good sport and being an intriguing person to chat with, Adrienne Reynolds for the Vogon Poetry and Towel Fashion Show, an agent/publisher named "Connor," for his discussion on humor, and some of the other authors and artists I chatted with at panels, room parties, dinners, brunches, and their merchant tables. I'd also like to thank Nancy Lebovitz for letting me hang out at her table.

ravynmaniac, this is the calmest I have seen you in 3 years! I wonder why... ;-)

Sorry, CJ Henderson, I swear I'll hang out with you next. I know I keep saying that, but you're not only a fascinating fellow, but a great salesperson, and I didn't want to interrupt you while you were busy.

Thank you SUE for all your work. I wished I could work as hard as you.

I had a great time BECAUSE of you all. This is why I go to the conventions in the first place.

See you at Balticon 43!
