... and many, many previous weekends, and I'm sure future weekends as well...

It's ok to be afraid of new stuff, as long as you do it anyway. :)

BIG HUGS and a shout-out to the organizers of CSIcon for a wonderful time, and to all the SCIENTISTS and SCIENCE BLOGGERS and PODCASTERS I met and managed to overcome my fear of being a dork enough to talk to-- you are all such a WONDERFUL inspiration!!! 

(Yes, that's right, I'm afraid of being a dork around scientists, bloggers and podcasters rather than movie stars and rock stars. What's your point? ;D)

I did a lot of ink-sketching at CSIcon, some recognizable and some not so much-- the point when sketching is less to do GOOD sketches than to simply DO, because skill always follows practice. My sketches from late in the conference are far better than the ones early in, as if to exemplify this principle. :)
