We are back

mrs. SkidMarks & I are back from Worldcon in Montreal.

Mr. Fforde didn't win any awards, and we did not meet any other Fforumites. Were any of you there?

Welcome back!

No, I'm afraid I'll be missing all Cons yet again this year-
including DragonCon, which is in easy driving distance but still costs more money than we can spare...

[small rant]
Sorry, I'm a bit bitter about unexpected expenses popping up all the time
& resentful to find out that my latest high school reunion is being planned by millionares
& timed in between my husband's b'day & our anniversary so that he couldn't get the time off to go if we could afford it
[/small rant]

So, did you & Mrs. Skids have a good time?

Signature or shameless self-promotion?
You decide:

Yes, thanks -we did. However, I think that I would be more at home at ComicCon. Anticipation seemed lacking in a sense of humour. As there is no Ffiesta, we may have to attend a Pratchett con.
