Splut

A better Saturday

Saturday at CONvergence started out rotten, but got better as the day went along.

I'm feeling better about the con now than I did this time yesterday. I'm going to get cleaned up, go out to the car and get my con badge (which I'd left in it, of course, after dinner), then put the costume on and wander around. Fortunately, the hotel has extended checkout time till 4 PM, so I won't have to rush anything.

A short Sunday

Sunday wasn't bad, but we didn't stay too long, either.

Overall impressions: I'm sure it's fun for most of the folks there, who have been going to cons (CONvergence, and before that Minicon) at that hotel for 20 years. I never really felt like I was connecting, though. It was just too big. I don't think I'll go back next year, unless something changes my mind - and that will mainly take finding someone to help me find ways to get connected, not just by going, but with the people there so I'll feel less like an interloper.
