I have not gotten travel grant money for my proposed trip to London and FantasyCon, which means I’m only going to London. Blast. Well, maybe next year we can go to FantasyCon.

That's a shame.

Though it does make me feel slightly less like a stalker. I'm doing an article on Me-Con and I'm going to FantasyCon so it would have probably gotten to the stage where I'd have felt obliged to try and steal your socks for some sort of altar. Like Cynthia Plaster-Caster...only with feet.

Now you're just tempting fate - polar bears can swim, after all!

Also, when I say 'that's a shame' you need to imagine my face...or well, magpie icon, making a 'bwah, that sucks!' face and not a sneery cheerleader of doom smirk.

Hah, call that stalking?

I managed to bump into Paul Cornell at almost every con I went to for over two years, including both PCon and PicoCon, as well as the Japanese Worldcon.

(He was very nice about it, and invited us to join a group going off for dinner in Yokohama.)

On one occasion, we were amicably but silently sharing a lift when he noticed his novel halfway down the stack of books I was holding.

Wow, that's dedicated stalking :)

Well, I've seen Shane McGowan drunk and on a tractor! (Admittedly, most people have probably seen Shane McGowan drunk and on a tractor.)

I know it is really bad of me to be selfish, but I'm glad London will still work out... ;)

Oh, boo! Shoddy decisions abound. I have myself still not won millions on the lottery, nor sold film rights for squillions. Boo!
