Thus far I honestly think that this could be (for me) the best Dragon*Con ever. The Skeptic track alone has made the trip worthwhile, and that's only been a portion of the awesomeness of this weekend. The panels have been fantastic, the hotel is great, I've been running into people I admire left and right, the Abney Park concert rocked, we've spent a pile of money (just in half of the exhibition hall- we haven't set foot in the dealer room yet). Best of all, as always, has been hanging out with friends.
The only down sides so far have been how sweltering hot my cyberpunk costume is and the almost complete lack of sleep. I got 3 1/2 hours of sleep last night, during which I woke up about 6 times afraid that I was missing a panel.
Okay. Back to con with me!
