I am home from Space City Con in Houston, where I got to visit NASA, met several real astronauts and one of my favorite make-believe astronauts (Gil Gerard, who played Buck Rogers), and was also privileged to meet The Doctor, and another the Doctor as well.
I played AD&D with some of the people who design it, and I went drinking with Klingons. (Klingons are the absolute nicest people, as I tweeted. I think they get all their aggression out at work.)
I also achieved a conditional Project: Valkyrie win, as I ran 5K in slightly under 30 minutes. It was on a treadmill, though, so it only sort of counts.
And I've just finished a draft of my Hieroglyph Project story, "Covenant," giving me something else to cross off my overwhelming to-do list.
