DragonCon 2011 Day 2 - End, Twitter Style

Don't have a lot of in-depth reporting to do ... brain is kinda melted. Suffice to say we're home and well and the kitties are also home and well for sufficient values of well. Dasher doesn't handle cars very well.

Instead of writing up a wall of text about the con, I'm going to post a wall of tweets, as these observations were made as the con was actually happening. For those who don't like tweets ... sorry! There's always the scroll bar. ;P

Well there you have it, in a group of nutshells. Gave out lots of Short Story Geeks podcast cards, plugged Arclight Adventures a few times, generally had fun. My only regret is that I never got to see the full set of ponies. Maybe they'll be at FC.
