Picocon and the Circus

Picocon entailed the usual sitting around talking in the dealer's room and the bar, and the almost complete ignoring of the program items. I earnt a few points for House Harkonnen by stealing the odd hat and committing random acts of origami, and I talked to many people including a number of LiveJournalists -- including bugshaw, hawkida, swisstone, alexmc, munquie, ang_grrr, ajr, flick, drplokta, gummitch, delc, peteyoung, both fishlifters, redbrown, hddod, random_fan and no doubt many others. There were several, too, with whom I didn't get the opportunity to chat. I left before the film because I had a subsequent engagement.

As recorded in the preceding entry, talodi advised me that there was a spare ticket amongst her crowd for the Cirque du Soleil, so I had another chance at this wonderful evening's entertainment. I wrote about this last week -- this time round it was just as good, and I saw bits of action I'd somehow missed last time round. talodi's party of ten eight included other LiveJournalists, but after a day on the cider at at Picocon I was too confused to take it all in.

Now I'm on my way home and enduring the usual delays at the hands of South West Trains.
