#1 Hanging out with new and old friends Van Allen Plexico, Joe Crowe, Larry Davis, Gary Mitchell, and all the gang over at the Sci-Fi & Fantasy Literature Track
#2 Talking Planet of the Apes, King Kong, and more with Joe Crowe at the Science Fiction Classics Track.
#4 Robert Englund
#5 Yancy Butler (I didn't watch Witchblade, but I enjoyed her performance in that short-lived cop show Mann & Machine. Yeah, it was trite and a bit cheesy, but so was Firefly.)
#5 Trace Beaulieu, Frank "TV's Frank" Conniff, and Joel Hodgson of MST3K fame.
#6 John Scalzi
#7 The live broadcast of the 100th episode of I Should Be Writing
And, what I won't miss . . .
#1 The crowds.
#2 The clouds of patchouli.
#3 The crowds.
#4 The feeling of wasted time when I leave a panel thinking, "Wait, did I really just spend an hour talking about Land of the Lost?"
