Weekly Update

Well, I had a good time at the con. Good enough that I'll likely be going to Scotland next year, Anaheim the year after and Japan the year after that. I heartily encourage everyone reading this to come along.

I bought many books in the dealer's room and was pleased to find that David Gerrold is actually writing the next Book of Cthorr (or however it is spelled). I attended quite a few panels and contributed to the discourse, including a 3 minute long comment at the panel about Secularization of the West that drove the rest of the days discussion. I attended the Hugo Awards, which were greatly amusing.

The choice for where WorldCon 2007 was made at the convention. The voting was between Fukayama Japan and Columbus, OH. I voted for Japan even though it cost $40 just to vote. Columbus does NOT need 2 major conventions in a year. Plus, I want to go to Japan again and this is a great excuse.

Sadly, I fell off my diet completely over the weekend. I ate ice cream, cheesecake, brownies, omlettes, all you can eat stir fry, etc... When I weighed myself this morning, I found myself to weigh 269. I didn't gain or lose a single pound. This is quite surprising and pleasing. I'm back on my diet starting this morning and am going to work on getting all that poison out of my system.

Sorry this post is somewhat scattered, but I'm a little dazed from this weekend apparently.
