Thank you for your report on world con. I think I understand the puppy situation better. Since I've never been to a world con, I could barely grasp what was going on last year when the whole fiasco was reported in locus. It sounds like you had a really good time.

Thanks. It's really frustrating when people blow it off as a joke, when it's literally a white supremacist response to the more diverse nominees and winners in 2013 and 2014.

The common factor I'm seeing in Worldcon reports (including mine) is people being bone-tired at the end of it. I guess that's normal. I had a fabulous time, but it's going to take me all week to recover.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I'm having a real problem getting anything done that doesn't involve sleeping or reading.

Worldcons wore me out when I was in my 30s. Now I'm 60, and it takes me the better part of a week to recover. (Which I spend catching up on my online communities and writing up my own con report, which should be up sometime next week.) It's just the inevitable result when you want to DO ALL THE THINGS!
