OMG it’s DragonCon!!
This is the biggest convention I do all year, and one of the most insane. I…can’t even measure the excitement / anxiety level right now…
Also, I ought to be in bed because I’ve got a Dark O’Clock flight… soon.
So, REAL QUICK, here are a few places you’ll find me at DragonCon… outide of the Westin bar in the evenings, the Voltaire concert, the Cruxshadows concert… buying band stuff, and possibly stalking some actors from The Expanse. And John Barrowman. Maybe.
If you’re there, hopefully I will see you!
