Hugos, Go Buy a Book, and Grilled Pizza
Posted September 3, 2012on:
This has been one helluvan exciting weekend, no? Hugo awards announced at WorldCon in Chicago, fan community uproar when the streaming service cut the feed due to copyright infringement (showing clips of the winning TV episode? oh the horror!!), the livetweeting awesomeness that followed, and the highlight of my weekend, the grilled pizza cookoff.
Also, this Friday, Sept 7th is National Buy a Book day, so you should totally go buy something. I dunno, maybe one of these snazzy novels, perhaps the bolded one that JUST WON A HUGO AWARD for best novel!
Among Others by Jo Walton

And by the way, click here for a list of all the nominees and winners. A personal congratulations to Jim C. Hines for winning best fan writer. That dude is an all around awesome individual – great fantasy writer, great advocate, great sense of humor, wonderful father, and just generally the kind of person you want in your life. I’ve linked his name to his blog, you should click on it.
oh, and also?
this weekend was the third annual grilled pizza cookoff! and after all that brilliant WorldCon live tweeting last night, the least I can do is post some delicious pictures of all the incredible food we chowed down on. More home made pizza than you can shake a stick at. literally. we had to cook in stages because it wouldn’t all fit on the picnic table. Also? there were epic desserts. observe!
