One week without wow

When do the withdrawals start? Over 24 hours of no wow so far – not a biggie but I’ve got another 6 days of this. I’ve never had a forced break for so long – kinda sad. What happens if I discover that there is a real world out there?
I could have loaded Wow on my lappy but with crappy expensive Internet at 50 cents per mb Capped daily at $15 and then u get a whole 300mb free! Yippee
Uhuh not worth it –
I might buy a prepaid 3G dongle it has gigs worth of downloads and I can use it back in sydney
So I’m here – geeks and sci fiction and writers ahoy – I’m waiting for the opening ceremony to start drinking really bad coffee and eating salt n vinegar chips cause that’s all that looked edible. – after the ceremony I am hoping to
attend a lecture on Steven king.

AussieCon Squeee

I have to share how excited I am about Aussiecon in Melbourne this year. 

There are so many things to do! Readings, discussions, panels, lectures   Book launches, movies, awards, Sciencefiction, fantasy,  Horror its all going to be there.  I think I shall be otherwise occupied long enough to be completely exhausted

Stuff to do includes,

Light saber making and training (Mmmm ok that’s tagged as for kids)

Building Lego Daleks (awe  kids again.  hang on..   there’s an adult session woot!)

and as for the panels..

Everything from Cyberpunk to Feminism, Technology and Gaming Narratives, Fantasy, World Building, Creating fictional wildlife, and Monarchs, history, science , Horror..  and so on,  my head is going to explode.

I know most people have holidays to have a holiday..  but I think this is going to be fun!

They have about 10 or so things on at the same time, and picking what to do is going to be hard sometimes.

This means there may be a period of silence from me, and no raids for a week. ( woot!)

It’s supposed to be a cosmic cross now according to my starsign,  and this is supposed to be a period  of significant change  – so I am hoping it will kick my butt into gear to motivate me to write other stuff.
