Missed three panels today since they were all in the tiny Salon D function room, which is about the same size as, say, the Crow or Illinois rooms at the Thunderbird or a cabana room at Convergence, and they all featured Guest of Honor Connie Willis. WTF, people? Did you seriously think only 20-30 people were going to want to hear what she and her fellow panelists had to say? So, instead of seeing the panel on plagues, I wound up at a pretty good presentation on longevity and life extension followed by one on the Mercury Messenger probe. Then I got dinner, blew off the overcrowded Blended Genres panel (yup, another GoH in Salon D panel), skipped the Plundering Amazon.com panel in favor of noshing with Mark Taylor, and skipped Space Weapons since Mark Van Name was on the panel and it was in Salon D. I did run into Kyle McAbee and his charming wife Monica in the Dealer's room, but in spite of conversing with him twice during the day, I never did see therevdrnye.

I was starting to get tired along about 2000, and neither the Masquerade nor the counter-programming interested me, so I missed the Hammers and went back to the Days Inn. I'll probably crash early; my legs can use the horizontal time.

Yes, our mealtimes were out of synch, and when you called after dinner we got cut off and I couldnt reach you. Damn steel superstructure.

At the time I was in the Con Suite with the LARP crowd, co-opting the SFPD into finding my creator's killers. "And Loving it."

As I suspected, I wasn't able to make it back today, because after being up and on my feet for a very long time I needed extra sleep and bed rest so my back would not try to secede from the union of my assorted body parts. When I finally got up, I had to ask, "Do I really want to burn $20 worth of gas and only be at the con for another 6 hours or so?"

Therefore, sadly, I missed another opportunity to either luncheon or dine with you, and didn't get to find out if my character brought his maker's killers to justice, or just killed them.

We'll have to try this again some time.
