Time to rejigger the <a href="" target="links">Fame-o-Meter</a>, I guess! I made some inquiries about attending <a href="" target="links">Orycon 30</a> in a professional capacity, and <em>voila!</em> I&#8217;m on the schedule. Orycon 30 is November 21-23 in downtown Portland.</p> <p>Orycon 28 was the first (and thus far only) sci-fi con I ever attended, as a guest of one of my other good fairies, <a href="" target="links">the scintillating Leslie What</a>. It was a blast, dampened only by the necessity of making coffee drinks for $8.50 an hour miles away during some of the festivities. Well, that and the parking ticket, but I underwent that parking ticket knowingly in order to stay around awesome people for another half an hour! Orycon 28 was a grand old time, and I look forward to Orycon 30 with great excitement. And a little trepidation, but I tell myself not to worry. After all, it&#8217;s mostly talking to people, and I talk to people <em>every day</eM>. Sometimes I even talk to cats!</p> <p>Anyway, I&#8217;ll be on four panels and host one round-table conversation (schedule <a href="" target="links" >here</a>.) Wish me luck, and perhaps I&#8217;ll see you there!</p>
