This weekend was the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. I hadn't really planned to go, but the con organizers offered professional passes to librarians, so Friday was free and a weekend pass was only $10. Good thing too. For a con that big, there really wasn't that much to do outside the dealer room. There weren't very many panels compared to other cons I've been to, and the stuff showing in the vid room was mostly nothing new or hard to come by. I got to go through the dealer room during professional-only hours before it opened to the public on Friday, so I got all my shopping out of the way early. (I miss you, Pegasus Publishing! Please come back to MediaWest!) Then I went to the 2 panels that interested me and called it a day.

All the walking did my feet no favors. I went hiking on Mt. Charleston with my dad a couple of years ago, and the trail was so long and steep that I actually managed to rearrange some bones in my feet on the downhill return. The chiropractor has been shoving them back into place and trying to keep them there ever since, but I think I just undid all his work. I haven't been able to walk on anything other than my super-spongy bedroom slippers since. Which sucks, because I need to go grocery shopping.

And because I can't seem to go to conventions anymore without running into people I know, I got to spend some time with [livejournal.com profile] asyouleft and [livejournal.com profile] loves_bitch. I also ran into one of my coworkers, who latched onto me like a limpet and prevented the rest of us from fangirling Supernatural by constantly interrupting us and not going away.

I was bored enough on Friday that I skipped the rest of the weekend. I think this is one con I can safely write off my future schedule.

I've been running around like a mad thing trying to get all my errands done before I leave for Kazcon at oh-dark-thirty on Thursday morning. The con hotel has wi-fi, so if I remember the charging cable for my PDA (and if the teeny tiny screen doesn't render me blind), I'll be blogging the con as much as I can. I still need to prep for one of the two panels I'm hosting. Oh, and I have to email the co-host of my other panel to see if she has any last minute additions.

Today, I did a whole lot of laundry. I haven't been that great about cleaning the last couple of days, but I've been puttering, and in my puttering, I seem to have accidentally finished clearing off the last of the kitchen counters. I also got to the bottom of 2 out of 3 piles of crap on the coffee table. I found fliers for 2 cons that were held in 2004, plus about 5 course catalogs for the local community college (they bulk mail them every semester).

The Supernatural, SG-1, and SGA panels at Comic-Con have been blogged extensively, so here are my impressions of the news out of the con that I haven't seen on my flist or Yahoo!Groups:
