Readercon was great, though much less with the panels and much more with the social this year. Bought many, many books just the same.

Gave Friday-morning brunch ride to an overcrowded car, including [livejournal.com profile] maureenmcq and her lovely husband only to return in time for her kaffeklatch. Stayed after for [livejournal.com profile] blackholly's, had a fabulous time and also met Laura Anne Gilman. Saw [livejournal.com profile] mroctober, who reminded me that I do need to write up my thoughts on Vintage and So Fey (and, for that matter, Megan Whalen Turner and the love I bear for her). Also [livejournal.com profile] sdn who, upon learning of my love for MWT told me "Here's Elizabeth Weir. Megan loves Elizabeth's writing. You should read." (I totally will.) Caught [livejournal.com profile] matociquala in the lobby, and she told me of the hotel's hot tub and a fabulous Korean BBQ place two miles away from the hotel, then caught her kaffeklatch. Went to fabulous Korean BBQ place with my "con family" of [livejournal.com profile] grailquestion, [livejournal.com profile] lunaratu, [livejournal.com profile] rosefox, [livejournal.com profile] sinboy, and [livejournal.com profile] yuki_onna, along with [livejournal.com profile] megmccarron and a lovely person named Liz whose LJ I do not know.

Somewhere in there was also dessert at Finale for my birthday, drinking beer on Saturday night while falling asleep to [livejournal.com profile] yuki_onna's rather strong opinions on Neil Gaiman, a girly shopping trip to the mall with [livejournal.com profile] grailquestion and [livejournal.com profile] lunaratu, and seeing [livejournal.com profile] fuyu_no_fuhei, though too briefly.

I went to more readings than I did panels, and I am now searching somewhat desprately for the anthology from which Theodora Goss read her story despite acquiring ridiculous (and I mean ridiculous) quantities of anthologies this weekend. Caught a bit of the Interfictions readings - everything Interfictions was scheduled opposite something else I was also interested in. The reading was Sunday "morning" (noon, actually) when I'd gotten so burned out on con I just drove in late.

Despite it all, I did miss [livejournal.com profile] ellen_kushner and her guitar. [livejournal.com profile] yuki_onna's commentary on that was great: "And I now know all the lyrics to 'Beeswing,' too!" There's always next year, I hope.

Now I'm at work, desperately trying to remember how I do that. I hope I shall be able to overcome my desire to flee editing my book and post more this week.
