By next year's EasterCon...

...I hope to have a laptop (ideally an Eee PC - I've seen a couple around this weekend, and boy they're *lovely*), to hook up to hotel wireless instead of accessing at the internet lobby, and ideally to be liveblogging some of the panels.

However, in the meantime, a couple of choice Neil Gaiman comments.

On the H2G2 TV series: "There were moments where Hitch-Hiker's fans were thinking, 'she's horribly miscast...'" *

On Mostly Harmless: "On a sentence by sentence basis, it was wonderful; on a paragraph by paragraph basis, it was good; on a page by page basis, it was okay; reading it as a whole, and expecting to get a great novelistic experience and a great Hitch-Hiker's experience, it was a complete waste of time." **

I've just bought a convention T-shirt (my last visit to the dealer's room this weekend) and am off to McDonald's for lunch before the last panel ("Darker than Potter") and the closing ceremony.


* Oh, I think Sandra Dickinson is horribly underrated. But even so, I thought this was funny.

** I think Mostly Harmless is justifiably underrated.
