When I heard about the New Zealand NatCon, Au Contraire, a week before Aussiecon 4, this year's Worldcon, I thought it was a fantastic idea. I thought it was such a good idea that we should do something similar in Dublin for the London Worldcon bid in 2014.

I mentioned this idea to a few people back home before leaving, and got a very positive response. I then mentioned it to some people at conventions down under, and they all said they'd love to come to Ireland. So I guess I was committed to running it.

Then another idea came to light.

For both Glasgow Worldcons, the Eurocon was incorporated into the Worldcon, and I assumed this would also be the case for London. However, since 2005, Worldcon has moved to a 2-year bidding cycle, and at the time when the Eurocon bidding takes place in Zagreb, London won't yet have won the Worldcon bid, so it won't be a convention, and without a convention it can't bid for Eurocon.

Nothing to do with the GUFF trip or fandom, but I thought I'd show off my new hat thanks to McDonalds WiFi. I know it's corny, but I really wanted a crocodile Dundee hat with corks around the brim. But you can't get them apart from crap joke shop ones, so you have to make your own. The only problem is that now I like the hat too much to punch holes in it.

Expect to see it at a con near you.
