WisCon run-down!

I was on 3 panels:
--Rethinking Disabling Metaphors (Hot topic, apparently!)

--Disability and Battlestar Galactica

--Taking WisCon Home: Book Clubs

They all went really well! Good audience participation, good fellow panelists and mods, and I think I had good things to say.

I only went to 3 others: Fanfic and Slash; The Vidshow panel; and "Robots Past and Future". All were quite fun.

One of the best parts of WisCon is always meeting people and hanging out with friends. [personal profile] trouble gave me a giant hug and was an instant friend. I bounced up and down at [ profile] haddayr and asked her how to pronounce her name. "Ha-DAR", she said, "Like the Jem'Hadar." I may have swooned a bit! I met raanve and wrdnrd, who I felt like I already knew. I met [profile] ch0me_kitten who is totally awesome and said smart things during the BSG panel. I had lunch with Tempest, who talked about her Mary Worth fanvids. I fangirled some people, but less than I have in the past. I hung out a lot with [personal profile] littlebutfierce, [personal profile] laceblade, [personal profile] were_duck, [personal profile] general_jinjur, [personal profile] futuransky [personal profile] jesse_the_k, and probably a bunch of others. Totally awesome people everywhere! And [personal profile] badgerbag gave me a hug!! I'm glad that at least some of these people are local, but I wish they all were! Thank goodness for the internet. And I'm glad I signed up to go to Think GalactiCon!

Overall I felt a *lot* better than I did last year. I remember leaving a meal last year and having to go stand outside to get some fresh air. I remember having headaches every day. This year, I think I only had a headache on Friday during the white allies dinner. Big win! There was one night I didn't go to any parties. I'm glad I paced myself, because I stayed up until four at the infamous Beer and Marmalade kegger.

Can't wait until next year! Whoo!

Yay! It was great to meet you and hear about your bookgroup! I'm excited to hang out more at Think Galactic (assuming I have any ability to "hang" as opposed to "run around in non-circular patterns with mild frenzy").

You and the other Think Galactic people were so friendly! I'm really excited to go. It was wonderful to meet you too!
