Arisia writeup

Well, it was a good con, but I'm paying for it now. After dealing with a persistent cough since last Wed, on Sunday, as I was flying home, it turned into influenza. Monday through today has just been coughs, chunks, aches, and so on.

But the con was fun, even if I didn't really get to party much and had to leave early. I should do these more often -- I know I keep saying that, but it really depends on my mood as to whether I enjoy myself or not, and too often in the past I've just not had any fun at a con.

Highlights: the artist GOH was Josh Simpson, who makes some extraordinary glass "paperweights" -- in his own explanations, they are his visions of other worlds, hence his being invited to a science fiction convention. Also, his wife is an astronaut currently on the ISS, and sent a photo snapped from the ISS of the Boston area from just moments before the convention started. Way cool.

As always, it was good to meet up with friends, old and new, and to see what's going on in those circles.

Now I'm just worried that I was the carrier of con-crud this year, I hope I didn't infect anyone with this crap.
