I spent the weekend (Friday through Sunday) at the Oasis literary science fiction convention in Orlando. I had fun, and I donated stuff to the charity auction and freebie table. (I got a lot of stuff--books, zines, etc.--out of the house.) And I talked to people, helped out a little bit, enjoyed the chili contest and dessert buffet. (What fantastic, yummy brownies and cookies!) I had a Philly cheese steak sandwich at a hotel restaurant for supper Friday. Best Philly cheese steak sandwich and steak I've had in eons! The fries were very good too. Expensive, of course. The second day I split a sandwich with someone. And I snacked in the con suite. Bought a few books. Enjoyed the panels and video room, though I had to leave at the beginning of a brand new Dr. Who two-parter from England when my ride arrived to take me home Sunday afternoon. Btw, getting on and off I4 at Orlando both times was harrowing!
