These are some of the things C. Flynt has been up to, some of our personal lives, some reviews of things we've read, some stuff we've learned.

The blogs are organized by date.

Comments will appear when we've had time to check them. Apology for the inconvenience, but it's a way to keep phishers and spammers off the page.

Capricon was (as usual) a lot of fun.

This year's Literary/Writing track was particularly strong. There was frequently more than one panel I was interested in going to running at the same time.

The ego-boo for me was my reading on Sunday.

I read a "love" story from the upcoming "Unintended Consequences" collection to a trio of 12 and 13 year olds in the KookieKlatch session. The kids were strongly opposed to hearing a "love" story, until I mentioned that it had two witches trying to make people fall in love, then they were grudgingly willing to listen. In the end, it took an hour to read a story that normally takes about 20 minutes. We stopped to talk about who liked who, why Mother Nona made believe she had a limp, what a ferrule was, whether New York or Philadelphia was a classier city in 1780 (Boston wins, hands down. Ask any Bostonian) and a bunch more.

Another high point was meeting and chatting with Jonathan P Brazee. He had an excellent suggestion for a naming dilemma we're having when one of Carol's characters gets captured by terrorists. The problem is the character using a word to describe the enemy that's adequately derogatory for a captured GI to use, but not so offensive as to put our name next to Salmon Rushdie on the "must kill" list.
