Whenever I go to a convention, I always seem to wind up passing over a proper report and just posting a list of the things I would have written about if I'd had the time and attention span.

The same fate seems to have befallen my intended post about what I did during the weekend that I didn't go to Worldcon.

Therefore, the following topics will not be covered in more detail under a cut:

* Reasons why I didn't go to Worldcon
* Cabaret continues well
* Family members in the audience (including two from out of town who travelled specially)
* People in real life who look like fictional characters; I keep meeting Aelliana Caylon
* Watched more of Gankutsuou; see previous post for details
* Local performing arts festival also this weekend
* The Character Vocal section is always my favourite
* For a girl who cain't say no, she sure sings it often and without any apparent difficulty
* "Who can say if I've been changed for the better / But because I knew you, I have been changed for good"

In the book, the duel is pistols at dawn. In the anime, it's swords. Wielded by humungous mecha.

Of course it is. I don't know how I could ever have supposed otherwise.

Dammit, that's an evil cliffhanger to end the disc on.

And it's going to be at least a week until the next disc arrives.


[ETA: Heh. Hark at the spoiled whiner. In the olden days, I'd have had to wait a week after every single episode. Still, it's annoying to have to wait a week after this episode, when things have just started really happening.]
