What duck? was one of the stamps we collected in our passports. (I was two off collecting the set!) Find the hidden duck, photograph it on your head and hide it in a different room...
Magrat and the Klub table. The convention drink - The Procrastinator - was very popular.
Workshops and Panels:I did a workshop - Write Your Own Discworld Story. We came up with a fun story. I'm hoping some of the attendees will write it and send me a copy (hint, hint) and I will send them to the Nullus Anxietas committee... On Sunday Ula and I did a panel on Steampunk / Steampunk in Discworld. You can watch the panel HERE. My favourite workshop was Martin Pearson's song writing workshop. (My verse on Uberwald parcels made the cut... squee!) You can hear Martin's song, The Moist von Lipwig Song, in the closing ceremony video.

And more research:I surfaced on the weekend for one of our regular D&D games and a trip to Burnside Library to register a table for LibCon17 where they had a mini Japanese Culture expo. I wish I'd been able to stay for a tea ceremony. To wrap up the weekend, I attended another writing course (a masterclass on Point of View). Tomorrow I end the week as I started, with another writing course, this one on dialogue. These courses give me a good kick in the writing butt. I highly recommend them.
During my travels I was reminded of the gorgeous city I live in.
