It's Tuesday, and although this isn't a genuine Tuesday Blog, it feels strange not to at least put something up.
So here goes...
'Twas a very strange weekend, which I imagine is par for the course at any convention, let alone one designed to celebrate all things weird and wonderful.
Somewhere between doing the can can, and defeating some evil prince or other with the awesome and ever so talented Butterfly Theatre Troupe (and feeling rather rubbish because most of the kids had done more acting than me) I found myself on a roller-coaster of planning to do one thing -- and getting sucked into doing
something completely different...

So much energy and enthusiasm, and of course it isn't a National Convention without the Sir Julius Vogel Awards. Check out the awesome winners here at http://www.sffanz.org.nz/sjv/sjvResults-2013.html -
and yes, of course I was disappointed not to carry off one of the stunning awards, but there is always next year and I do so admire all the winners. They are all so amazing! :)
Hope to be back to poetry soon.
Miss it already,
