In which many extremely cool things occurred, including:

  • Watching Elise Matthesen ([livejournal.com profile] elisem) create intriguing and beautiful art from shell and wire

  • Hand-delivering Star Island knitting yarn to the intended recipient [1]

  • Elise Matthesen singing Amanda Palmer's "Ukulele Anthem"

  • Getting my copy of Redshirts autographed by John Scalzi

  • Getting my copy of War for the Oaks autographed by Emma Bull ([livejournal.com profile] coffeeem)

  • Winning a fireman's helmet in the roving auction [2], autographed by Scott Lynch ([livejournal.com profile] scott_lynch)[3]
