Dragon*Con Begins . . .

So, Dragon*Con, the annual convergence of geekdom, starts this weekend. I'll probably be away from LJ, but I might see if I can sneak in an entry.

Made my way down on Thursday so I could pick up my guest-of-a-guest badge. I had to wait until my sister made it down to registration; fortunately she was on her way down just as I arrived, so I met up with her and my brother-in-law, picked up my badge, went up to their suite to say howdy to my nieces and then went back down to the Hyatt bar where everybody shows up sooner or later.

Since it was only Thursday night, the mass geekness is not yet in evidence, but I ran into Jim R. (a comic book artist I had a strange flirtation with a few years prior) and we caught up on things and went up to the hospitality suite where I drank wine and met up with the people I pretty much see once a year at Dragon*Con.

Kathy (my sister) offered me crashspace, so I went ahead and had that third glass of wine and zonked out in the suite. Kathy unfolded the fold-out bed for me, but my niece, Caroline, decided she liked it better, so I slept in the bed instead. No complaints. (Though my other niece, Ariel, was a bit confused when she woke up in the wee smalls and found me there.)

Got up relatively early and drove my way up the misty streets to my house, where I've been spending the morning showering, prettifying and packing. Just about to pack up the computer and I figured I'd slip in an LJ entry before I did. So here you are.

Today I took pleasure in smiling and saying "good morning" to people as I walked back to where my car was.

Today I learned where The Evil Wig was hiding. (I decided to add it to my suitcase. And threw in a feather boa. Heck, it's Dragon*Con.)
