Eastercon was... odd. I went to bed early both nights I was there and didn't stick around for the third one.

I had brief conversations, I trawled the dealers room and got an awesome hat, and I went to some programme items. Somehow, though, I just failed to really engage and feel like a part of it. Conversations dried up easily, the hotel irritated only slightly less than last time I was there, and I spent much of Sunday wondering why I'd given money to the London Worldcon bid.

Too many people I'd expected to see were missing, and everyone seemed so busy, so I spent a lot of time feeling a bit like I was looking in on something I didn't belong to. I don't think I'll bother next year. Which is a pity, I used to really like conventions.

interesting. That's how I've felt at the last couple of conventions I have been to.

Your hat was fantastic! I admired it every time I saw you wearing it. Lovely to see you this week, albeit transiently.

I've felt like that at times at cons. And at family weddings, work socials, dinner with friends and private viewings. Usually for me it's a symptom of being unsure about my life at that time, for some reason, which is sharpened in company, and not actually much to do with the event I'm at. Wasn't the case for me this weekend, and I enjoyed it very much. Sorry you didn't. Take care.

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy Eastercon as much as you'd hoped. It was nice to see you, anyway, however briefly.
