Miscellaneous notes from the Worldcon

Attendance was just under 6000. Total membership over 7000.

Next year it will be in Yokohama.

For 2008, there were three candidates: Chicago, Columbus, and Denver. Denver, a late entry into the competition, won by 12 votes.

On a personal note, I discovered that certain things I would have expected to get very emotional about drew only numbness, including encountering one guy I have a real hate on for (but then, he is his own worst punishment). I'm just as happy I didn't see xgf there at all...not sure how I would have handled that...

I did spend a lot of time looking, looking, looking.....but not finding anyone. So I followed my preferences and ended up chatting up the most attractive females I could find. The first two live together and work together, and can communicate without words....reminded me of me and my best friend.... each of them had a guy hanging around, waiting for the opportunity to move in.....never happened. They were both very pleasant to talk to and I had a grand time talking about Alan Moore with one of them. That all happened Friday night. Never did see them again..... could dig up more information if I want to .... I know where they're from, and I bet I could access the membership data base if I really want to... It occured to me later that they might not have been interested in guys, although I didn't see any evidence to the contrary.

People my own age have all gotten old and fat. Hard for me to get interested in that....

More later. Sleep now. Finally.

"People my own age have all gotten old and fat. Hard for me to get interested in that" .... wow, not sorry now I have missed your blog in the past... good luck with that... from reading, sounds like you should have figured out by now that you are maybe not "all that" yourself, or are you too busy judging others? Your blog really rubbed me the wrong way tonight... maybe another day I will see you in a better light...

Apparently the depth of depravity here is bottomless... don't you feel right at home?

Can't say as I blame you. That was a pretty asshole thing to say. The only defense for it being that it's an accurate presentation of the way the jerk thinks.

"you should have figured out by now that you are maybe not "all that" yourself"

I think he knows that, and he's as hard on himself as he is on everybody else....that doesn't mean he isn't a jerk.....
