Heyas from Dragon*Con! I'd just like to mention here a few appreciative words about mammallamadevil, who made a particular effort to get to this con, through all the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, and without whom I'd be at a loss at the table. Due to schedule crunches and various other stressors, she didn't want to come and back in June or so had decided to beg off, but when I found out that she wasn't planning to come, I begged, wheedled, and generally cajoled her not to abandon me in my time of need -- and she hasn't.
So a big ol' THANK YOU to Kerry for being here and taking care of the business end of things with your usual style and grace. :) I couldn't do this stuff without you!
