oops!  i should read all my email before sending any. 
i've tried to convince myself of this before, but
somehow it never sticks.  d'oh.
anyway, Deborah, i'm really glad you got to experience
your first con -- i think Boskone is a great first con
(it was also my first sf/fantasy con, two years ago),
'cause it's pretty small and homey and calm, and yet
very very cool and high quality.  i wish we had run
into each other... ah well.

yes!  a T-shirt would be grand!
i like both those ideas, and some of the others people
have tossed around...
what about... oh, damn, i can't quite remember the
term... those people in Tale of Time City that are
sent out into History to monitor its status, like the
real Vivian Lee's parents.
or that band that the older stepbrother loves in The
Ogre Downstairs?  (argh, complete mush for brains
after three days of con, sorry for failure of detail)

sidenote: those of you who've read Emma Bull's War for
the Oaks might appreciate this t-shirt concept:
