So going to Dragon*Con is now a possibility!  I think I'm going to.  I found someone who will let me bunk with them and their crew... I think I should just buy a plane ticket and go.  First time doing something like this alone!  A bit scary!

First time alone? Even more reason to do it. Gotta keep experiencing new things. Go for it!

So when's the judging?
It always seems like the barrels around here have something in them.

It's a secret ballot by 5 judges announced at Dragon*Con-- the winner is secret even from the judges.

I also want to point out that this is THE Geek Podcast award.  There are the ENnies, but they don't know anything about podcasts so it's not too big of a deal.  There are other podcast awards, but they focus on the more typical podcasts.  This is like the Oscars of Geek Podcasting.

And... I just bought a plane ticket!  I'm committed!  I decided if I didn't just buy a ticket I would find an excuse to chicken out.  I leave at 6 am on Saturday morning (blahh!!!) but it means I'll be there for all day Sat and Sunday and even some of Monday.

Make sure you go to the Varsity - last time I was in Atlanta, I wanted to go, but no one (except Blade2718) wanted to go.

I'm psyched that one of us is going. However, it is now your sacred duty to get Dr.Michael  Shermer to sign copies of Why People Believe Weird Things for both myself and Josh

The man knows of what he speaks. The mere thought of a chili dog with mustard and some onion rings from there makes me start to drool. Ooh! And the fried apple pies!

So there is a brief report elsewhere, but to keep it all in one place-- we didn't win the Parsec but are happy with the winner:
Pulp Gamer's Game Kennel won which is a good thing.

Honestly the nomination is huge.  Just wish they linked to us from the nomination page.  But the event was cool overall.
