It’s the most… wonderful time… of the year!  Dragon Con time!  As you’ll see, I’m clearly not good at not being on panels, and I’ve hit a new all-time high this year with 16 events.  And I’m not even doing the parade.  So before I go pre-sleep (it won’t work, I’m sure), here’s where I’ll be:

Where else will I be?  If it involved Brian Henson and doesn’t conflict with one of my panels, assume I’ll be there.  And the Center for Puppetry Arts, and a lot of the podcasting and Trek stuff…  And I guess I should throw up a cosplay graphic, too, huh?  That is the one area that I am taking it a bit easy this year…  (Even though it may not look it, most of these are both easy and comfortable.)
