Survived the Con
I doubt I’ll be attending any other cons until Mile Hi Con in the fall. Some people go to every con they can find. I haven’t been that ambitious. But I did meet some new people and had some fun. One disappointment, they didn't have any steampunk dogs. If I had a dog, I'd dress him/her up in a steampunk getup starting with some goggles. But that's just the kind of guy I am.
One quibble was the restaurant in the hotel had one of the most bizarre menus I have ever seen. I really wish chefs wouldn't try to impress us with their great knowledge of cooking when all we really want is a hot dog. I kept trying to get a hot dog next door at Circle K, but they were always out of them. I really don't like Circle K. If I ran a hotel I'd have a dog menu as well as a human menu. Dogs have always liked my cooking--I mean really liked it in a scoot your plate around for 15 minutes kind of way. But dogs don't have much money, so nobody running hotels or conventions thinks much about them. But I seem to be digressing a bit from the main point.
There wasn't much interest in listening to me read my new story. And it's been a long time since I've been to any event that had so many smoking hot women. That may not be PC, but it was true. I need to find a con where they have huge numbers of women who are enamoured with grumpy middle aged men. Maybe I should make my own con. Dave Con 2014 anyone?
