I had a good time, and yet I'm beginning to wonder how useful cons are to me. I'm too much of an introvert for the social aspect to be much of a draw. The acquaintances I do have tend to be looking for very different things in SF books than I am, so I just sort of shut up and listen (by which I mean I have nothing to add to the conversation other than occasional trivia). Panels are so hit or miss, and are too easily derailed. Of course, the fact that my headache is still with me may be coloring my perceptions just now. I know that for the most part, I enjoyed last year more. There were more panels that interested me. This time, there were a couple of times when I couldn't find anything I really wanted to sit in on.
