Last night I went down to the Madison Concourse Hotel to help get things ready for WisCon, mostly putting stickers on things and separating tangled badge holders. I figured that it would be a good way to start meeting people, but also the discount for volunteer hours would be handy in my current unemployed state. It was pretty fun and only took about 2 hours.

I headed back down this evening for another couple hours of volunteering. We put name badges together and assembled registration packets. Again, I met some more interesting people. After the packet assembly was done, I (along with many of the others) trekked down the A Room of One's Own for a reception and readings by the two guest of honor: Timmi Duchamp and Maureen McHugh. I am not familiar with either of them, so it was a nice introduction.

Now I am going through the program book with an orange scented Mr. Sketch and highlighting the programs I want to attend. Sometimes it is a tough choice, I tell you. When I finish that, I want to decorate my name badge a bit.

At the moment, I am planning to bring my laptop with me every day, so I should be able to blog anything interesting as it happens. (More importantly, I will be able to make use of Google, IMDB, Wikipedia, and the Madison Public Library online catalogue to answer questions and look for books and movies I suddenly need to check out.) I also am bringing my camera, and will try to take some good pictures.

Update: Excellent! I just discovered that the con has vouchers available to the members for free cab rides...this will be great, since the bus does not run very late on the weekends. Now I don't have to try to bike home in the dark.
