two introductions at Readercon, of varying success

1. White man to black woman: "So, you must be Nalo" (Hopkinson, one of the two Guests of Honor).

In fact, she neither must be nor is.

2. Person upon being introduced to me: look of recognition followed by, "you have a stuffed Appa."

Which is not what I was expecting, but is pretty awesome all the same.

And now, bed.
