Following up to the last entry ...

... because I forgot to say anything about the people we met. They seemed nice, and fairly typically fannish, from what I can see. We found out that there are some people who meet regularly in a pub to discuss Buffy and other things, and we met a fan who also happened to be a fencer, and chatted for a while about fencing things and fan things. We've also been added to a list of Glasgow-based fans, since quite a few of the WorldCon committee live in various other places around the UK (from the sounds of things, quite a few have recently left Glasgow). We're vaguely planning to wander along to the pub to one of the meetings and start getting to know a few people.
And I think we'll be fervently hoping that the anti-smoking legislation currently before the Scottish Executive gets passed, because it seems that a lot of social activities (and con activities) over here are conducted in pubs. I experienced more than enough second-hand cigarette smoke when my father used to smoke (that is, before the triple-bypass), and these days I have a low tolerance for cigarette smoke. Of course, neither rwrylsin and I drink beer, either, but I'm sure we'll fit in somehow ...
