Odyssey 2010 - Eastercon write up
Well, it's been a couple of days since the Con and having a) caught up on sleep and b) dealt with over 1,500 e-mails that came in whilst I was away (fortunately most were from groups I'm a member of and were just "skim and delete"!) I decided to write up some of my experiences.
Firstly I have to say that this was definitely a great Convention, I had a really good time, met lots of interesting people and really enjoyed myself.
Running the Pub Quiz on Thursday night where the winning team got 45 out of 50 which was pretty impressive because some of those questions were fiendishly hard :-)
Attending various fascinating talks and panel discussions.
Repeatedly involuntarily ducking during the pyrotechnics demonstration...!
Being very pleased that my BDSM talk and Rope Bondage Workshops were well attended, ditto for the "panel" (well, two of us!) for Scrabble Tactics.
Watching the SCA beat the proverbial out of each other with various weapons!
Picking up half a dozen old or out of print SF books which I've been after for ages :-)
Not getting lynched for expressing some controversial views on the ethics in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse!!!
Laughing repeatedly at the passages being read out in the "Bad Sex in SF" panel :-)))
Oh and somehow I managed to get assimilated by Tech when all I wanted to do was give someone a hug and say goodbye, but ended up spending an hour and a half helping them sort out a ton of equipment!! Current Mood: happy
