Back From Eastercon
This started with TomTom being too clever by half, and putting out a download that scrambled the brains of all connected satnavs, including our Hermione, so that none of them could receive a GPS signal. Just in time for the UK Bank Holiday.

Had a good time at Eastercon, spending a few minutes with a lot of people I don't see elsewhere. The BSFA lecture on the Norman Conquest was fascinating, as with the talk on Archery. However, a number of panels seemed to be duplicated, and some of them had people up front (men and women, I must add) who were far less knowledgeable about the subject than the audience.

Ina and I also got con-crud. I spent a fair amount of time yesterday locked in my room sleeping, missing the Milford meeting, for which I apologise.

Avoided all the GoH speeches, quite deliberately. Anyhow, we decided to come home at lunchtime, not loaded up with books, for once.

Unless you picked up my cold, which is doing marvellously well - ick. Get better soon!

I'm glad you enjoyed Eastercon, even if you skipped some things, and skipped out early.

Good luck collecting Puppy tomorrow. I hope TomTom has corrected itself before you set out.

We're pretty sure it's not your cold but something we picked up from the Agility mob.

I must confess I'm glad to hear that. Because this is not a good cold. At all.

Sorry I didn't see you. I was only there Fri late to Sun early though I did toddle along to the Milford panel. As usual mostly I was just hanging out, though some plot-noodling also happened, so it was a good con. :)

I was delighted to meet you and Ina in persons.

I too went to the Archery one (and have noted Brave as a film to see).

But most of the con I spent (as you saw) offering people a badge, a keyring or a badge and a keyring and having interesting conversations with people I didn't know as a result.

We were delighted to meet you too!
