Just got back (well, an hour or two ago; have been catching up on stuff) from Baitcon XVI. It was excellent and I had a good time, but I was also in a kind of down/weird mood, and ended up leaving early (which gets me the chance to have a day at home and catch my breath and run errands and stuff). I will probably do a fuller posting later, but for now the following observations spring to mind:
- I love driving, and I haven't gotten to do enough longish drives lately. (I particularly love driving in the fog, because it's so beautiful, although of course I wouldn't seek it out 'cause it's dangerous.)
- I miss Tigris and Tom terribly.
- Once you get the tent set up and get yourself and your wet stuff in, and you're no longer actually being rained on, rainfall on a tent is a very lovely sound.
- Habañero-amaretto ice cream is yummy, and dragon chocolate (chocolate-cayenne) ice cream is even better, but neither of them can hold a candle to ginger sorbet made with ginger beer.
And with that, it is time for me to collapse.
