Yesterday during the Locus Awards Liza Trombi and Connie Willis awarded me the Second Banana for Meritorious Service. It actually made me cry. (Connie: “You are crying over a plastic. Banana.”)
Helping with the Locus Awards doesn’t feel like any kind work. I get to drive Connie around and help Liza (who is one of my absolutely favorite people to have a beer with ever) with stuff and then all of our friends come hang out. And I get free books. I feel LUCKY to help. But I’ll keep the banana.
