Awesome Con was last weekend, and I volunteered all three days. It was delightful yet exhausting. Things I did:
A) Waved flags to direct people into lines for autograph signings and photo ops.
B) Scanned photos and tickets *after* photo ops in order to make sure everything checked out properly (and no one got a photo op for free).
C) Yelled “Catherine Tate Q&A panel here!” through a megaphone in the lobby.
D) Sat at the Info Booth and gave people directions.
E) Snuck glances at David Tennant, whose hair was sticking out all over the place and who looked extremely over-caffeinated (to be fair, this is how he looks in Doctor Who)
F) Made a mental list of everything I would blog about at the end of the day.
G) Came home and fell into bed without blogging.

Hellhound‘s sequel has a couple gay characters, so it’s something I’ve been thinking about. Also possibly on the docket: snippets of what it’s like to be in a writing group again (hint: good).
John Barrowman was also at Awesome Con, and falls very much into the LGBT category. I leave you with this:
