Okay, so I’m a terrible blogger. I said I’d post about the fun I had at Illogicon. It wasn’t that I didn’t have a good time – believe me, fun was achieved! If you haven’t ever been, I must highly recommend you give it a try. I met my very favorite writer of all, Tim Powers (who happened to be the GoH) and spent time with a number of awesome people.
But now I have Mysticon coming! It’s in Virginia, and I’m looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones in a couple of weeks. Want to know where I’ll be? I can show you!

In light of the recent troubles on Livejournal, I’ve chosen to move my blogging over here to my own site. Which only makes sense, because why have it if I’m not going to use it, aye? At the moment I’m busily working on updating the site, so this post is pretty boring, but don’t give up on me yet. I’m headed north to Illogicon next weekend, and I plan to have funny pictures and great adventures to share afterward!
