Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.

On the Road, Again.

Sent in my registration and booked the room for Confluence. I had a fun time last year.This year I'm thinking of going the extra mile and taking a day off of work to get there early. I missed some good stuff that first afternoon. This con is a very well attended small but growing con that drew a lot of big names last year. I wish I had known more about con going and people then, I would have had a better time. As it was, Tobias Buckell kept going and going like the energizer bunny, and I was dead-tired from work. Sorry, Tobias. This year, I hope to be better (hence the taking the day off). Good folks, good panels, good parties, lots of nice energy. I hope to see everybody there again and have a wonderful time.

As a side note, I'm still working on going to World Fanatasy. If you're thinking of going, the deadline for $125 memberships is this month on the 15th. The main hotel is already booked (but they have a second hotel).

Nice line up there. Love the name 'Blind Lemming Chiffon'.

I hope so, LBB. I'm still kinda new at the con going thing, but I'm starting to have more "fun time" stuff then "I gotta see this panel" stuff.

Todd, yeah the filkers all have interesting names, like "The Great Lukeski" and others. I haven't gone to a concert yet, so I don't know what I'm missing.
