Ah, I thought I saw you in the distance at one point, but wasn't quite sure! But it must have been you then if you were in some of the same panels that I was. :)

This time there weren't really many celebrities that I was particularly interested in seeing, but I enjoyed the panels I went to anyway, so I think in future, I will be less concerned about who the guests of honour are and just go anyway.
