To say that Penguicon is a highlight of my year is an understatement to say the least. I love this unique and wonderful mix of geekery, fandom and fun like I love no other con. This was actually supposed to be the year that I set up a table as a cartoonist in my own right, but as you’ve probably gleaned from the slow progress at Slightly Off-Topic in the last few months, life has been extremely busy, and I’ve just been keeping my head above water, so no merch or table displays were prepared.

My… that was a long sentence!

One of the problems with Penguicon is that you tend to completely lose track of time. To see what I mean, let’s run the numbers…

Food Intake:

Breakast – McDonalds – 1400 calories



Yep, that’s right… I ate exactly once yesterday. What was that reader Chris said about keeping dinar bars handy? I’ll be adding them to the shopping list, thankyouverymuch. I’m pretty sure Dr. Beck would be beating me about the head and face at this moment if Pi were within arms reach. As int is, to forestall such stupidity today, I have just sent Brit up to the con suite on a portable fruit run. I’ll just keep some with me throughout the day for munching. I suspect, though, that the simple act of having food will remind me to eat.
