And it was one of the best opening ceremony pieces I've seen in years. Really funny, a great start to the con, and setting the tone nicely.
Spent a lot of time catching up with dcrisp which was great. And it was nice, several times he asked if I need to be thinking about heading home, not because he wanted me to leave (no, really, he didn't!) but because he remembered that I needed to be asked about resting from time to time so I would stop and think about how I was coping, rather than just continuing blindly until it was too late.
Thanks David, I really appreciate you doing this.
While on the newbie panel, I spotted one of my old Alternate Worlds customers in the audience. Haven't seen him in over a decade. We got chatting away afterwards and it was a really nice catch-up. And when he realised I was sick and needed rest, he not only offered me crash space in his room, but he went and got me a spare key.
As usual I didn't realise what a relief this would be until it happened. And as usual for me in recent times, the sheer kindness of it almost made me cry.
So a great con and very nice for me personally. Don't know how much I'll see, but I've got crash space and already been shown a lot of kindness.
