WorldCon 1

First day of World Con, and what a con it is.

The strangest part, by far, is the familiarity of the dramatis personae. Joe and Gaye Haldeman? But, of course. It's a worldcon, isn't it? Kelly and Gavin. Ellen Datlow. Mari and Yukinori, who are always at Wiscon and often at WFC and Worldcon as well. marykaykare. Farah and Edward. Oh, yes, and all these Japanese and Brits and Aussies I've never met before. And I can't read most of the signs and the invitations to the parties are incredibly formal and at about 3 pm, I feel like I'm going to fall on my face even though I went to bed at 10pm the night before. I hate jet lag.

Did I mention that I hate jet lag? I'm so looking forward to getting my brain back. I need it for my panels. Not to mention my novel, which I have to work on while I'm here, or else I'm scrod. Well, it's early days yet, I guess.
