Been a bit quiet of late, but with very good reason. And that reason is Wiscon 36. Or, as I like to call it, the best thing in the history of ever.
Yeah. Basically it was four days of running around like a crazy person talking about sci fi and feminism and privilege and social justice and chocolate. I may attempt something like a con report, or I may just leave that to C.D., with whom I spent the entire weekend. If you remember seeing two curly-haired white chicks standing/sitting in a corner/at a panel/in front of the water station/in your way blathering at each other nonstop…that was us. Sorry for any inconvenience.
I now have a list of books approximately three pages long (totally guessing as I haven’t actually stuck all the lists together at this point, but it’s definitely going to end up in the hundreds of titles) to read/re-read before WisCon 37. Which, you know, is totally going to happen.
Of course, what with all the excitement and ideas and talking and general excess of awesome, there was a deficit in things like food and sleep and water, which kinda takes its toll after four days. So I present you with a helpful infographic to explain the effects of this much awesome. In the interest of equality and accessibility, I have chosen to assume you are all Violet Androgynous Humanoid Robots.
I happen to think you all make perfectly adorable Violet Androgynous Humanoid Robots. And your poor, confused Crimson Feline Companion Droid is pretty cute, too.
