And…there are always fun parties and things to do at Wiscon, so I thought I would talk a little about those.
This year, my favorite social event by far was the dance. I could dance this year for the first time in a long time. Weight loss and regular exercise helped me do it. My knee wasn’t as wonky as before, and I had a lot more stamina. I am a dance addict. No doubt about it. I’d keep trying to get off the floor, and another cool song would come up, and hey, I’m dancing. It was a lot of fun.
My favorite missed event was karaoke. I understand from the organizers that it will now be an every other year event, due to young children and babysitting arrangements. I get that, but I love the karaoke so very much, so I am anticipating its return.
That party where I managed to fan girl over Daniel Jose Older and Bart Leib regarding Older’s reading and Bart’s company. Later, I would buy Older’s collection, and I would subscribe to Crossed Genres.
