Convergence 2008
 It's been a while since I've been in here -- you'll see this post here and as a "comment" on my second post . . . oops.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, we've got our Webkinz panel and I'm very happy to report that I've found three other folks to "panel" with me! We're (hubby & I) really looking forward to the con--as usual! This is where we first met so it has a pretty special place in our hearts. I'm excited to see if there will be more than the four of us in our Webkinz panel. I don't think we'd mind all that much as we're all fanatics in our own ways. We'll be giving away some Webbies so I hope some folks show up!

Here's an example of how diverse these conventions can be . . . a couple of my very good friends are also on a panel at this year's con -- a slash fiction panel! I'll probably go to theirs but I highly doubt they'll come to mine. :-)

I'm hoping to add an official Convergence tag to this post so folks can search it easily as well -- not sure I remember how I did tags so we'll see how it goes. Perhaps this will bring in a couple posts. Fortunately for me I'm quite used to talking to myself . . .

Let's start . . .
So I'm extremely excited about CONvergence 2008.  It's going to be a day longer and better than ever.  Happy 10th anniversary!

If you look at my profile you will see that I am not only an SF fan but also an avid gamer . . . okay, not the traditional gaming for someone of my advanced years, but it's lots of fun for kids and can be obsessive for adults . . . like me . . . Hello, my name is Jan and I'm addicted to Webkinz.  If you don't know/care about Webkinz, feel free to skip the rest of this post but, please, tell me what you're looking forward to at CONvergence 2008!

Back to the Webbies; I will be hosting a panel in the gaming track on everything Webkinz and would love to have a few other WebkinzInsiders -- if you know what that means, you're definitely the one of my own kind  ;-) -- to help me host this panel.  It will be on Friday at 3:30.  Please let me know if you're interested.

See you back here or in WW!

CONvergence 2008
I  searched for a general CONvergence community but didn't find anything.  Of course, that doesn't mean it's not there . . . 

At any rate, here's a thread for any and all CONvergence postings.  (MISFITS sponsored science fiction and fantasy fan-run convention taking place every July 4th weekend in Bloomington, MN, at the Sheraton.)

Anybody out there?
