Rec: Article About LA Con by Jasminka

Jasminka has a great three part article up at The Winchester Family Business about the LA Convention. Check it out at these links: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.

It basically confirms what I suspected: I cannot go to conventions. I just don't have the right personality for it.

I like the articles because unlike most convention reports, Jasminka does not get carried away by fangirlism -  she never loses sight of the fact that the person on stage is a PERSON, not just an object placed there for our amusement.

Anyway, I don't know if any of you are planning to come up here at the end of the summer for the next Vancouver Convention - but if you are, I hope you read this article to gain some insight into how to be respectful. (Unless you are respectful already, in which case, read the article to sympathize with Jasminka's bouts of vicarious embarrassment.)

Also, if any of you are planning to come up here for the Vancouver Con. I will not be seeing you there - but if you wanted to meet for coffee or something, keep me in mind. (Assuming I've been able to find another job and can still afford to live in this city by the end of August.)
