Swancon 2009 - made of win

One of the things I love most about Swancon is that it's a different convention every year. Some years, it's all about the program. Others, it's all about hanging out at parties. This year? Was one of my favourites. The atmosphere was so relaxed, the program had a bunch of neat stuff, and I got to spend a lot of time with my friends. Swancon for the win!

My panels all went well too, and I promised people stuff, which I'm linking to in this post. If I've missed anything, drop a comment and I'll add it.
