Back from Reno

Back from Worldcon safe and sound. I had a great time. I took some panel notes which I have ambitions of typing up and posting - we'll see if that actually happens before I decide that Worldcon was so long ago that nobody cares anymore.

Someone I was chatting with in the elevator this morning opined that it was a good con if you got everything autographed that you brought to be autographed. Not being an autograph hound, I have a rather different definition of a good con: it's a good con if I don't go to too many boring panels, and if I spend my social time hanging out with people whose company I enjoy, or meeting new people whose company I hope to come to enjoy. By that standard, this Worldcon was a roaring success. My only regret is that I didn't get to more of the parties, but it's really better for everybody involved if I don't try to socialize while stupidly sleepy or nursing a sinus headache brought on by the smoky casino atmosphere.

Glad you enjoyed it.

I enjoyed the panels and the parties, but called it an evening pretty early each night. I was amazed at how tired 7000 feet of elevation made me - I was not expecting that.

Yeah, I'm definitely a lowlander by both nature and nurture. I once got altitude sickness at Lake Tahoe, and was a bit afraid I might repeat the experience in Reno, but I escaped that, fortunately.
