spindizzy: (Be happy!)
OKAY, continuing the post on What I Did On My London Holiday, because the other one got to like 2500 words and if this is more of the same, it's going to be full-on too many damn pages for any man to understand.

(... Also writing this is reminding me of all the points where I was unintentionally a jerk and just D: D: D: D: I'M SORRY, NEXT TIME I WILL DO BETTER.)

It was a good trip! It was fun, I was only like, moderate levels of anxious despite being in a completely new place with lots of new people! And there were some really good costumes! There was a TARDIS full of bras, Madame Vastra, a knitted Squirrel Girl (no seriously), and a knitted Wonder Woman, lemmings... There was a Commander Shepard and a Loki that I liked but I've not seen any photos cross my feeds. I... I think I'd go again! The tickets for next year are up, so I could always be efficient and do that now...

(People have been going "Soooooo how many books did you buy?" and people who only know me online are like "Ten! That's a lot!" and people who know me offline are just "Ten? That's really good for you!" ... I think that shade is being thrown my way and I entirely deserve it.)

I went to my first residential convention! It was kinda scary but really good and I had a lot of fun and... Was a lot less anxious during the whole thing than I expected! Like, my social anxiety is picking over everything, but I can still do a lot of happy yelling! (Obligatory livetweet thread!)

(Also I apologise if this seems excessively... Me me me? I kinda did the maths on "sounding like a self-centred jerk" or "possibly infringing people's privacy by talking about them on the internet" and came down on the side of being a jerk? I SPOKE TO MANY PEOPLE WHO WERE SMART AND FUNNY AND DELIGHTFUL, I am just... Not representing that well?)

Okay, that's quite long enough, splitting it here, back in a sec.
