Okay, Venice was terrific, but the Diana Wynne Jones Conference was sublime.

It's hard to summarize three days of non-stop intellectual stimulation, book-talk, meeting of friends, and general Good TimesTM. The papers were wide-ranging and of very high quality. For me, there was added delight in the fact that long-time and very dear LJ friends like owlfish, gillo and of course lady_schrapnell and steepholm were there. I got to meet the latter two in person for the first time, which was thoroughly delightful. I also got to meet newer friends like heleninwales and emmaco, and made new friends as well.

Oh, and I think my paper went pretty well :-)

My Penzance hotel internet access is about to expire, so more later...
