Thing I am always reminded of at cons: I am constitutionally incapable of telling someone I find them attractive in any sort of smooth, suave way. I am a dork, ladies and gentlemen. It always ends up along the lines of "Ummhi. I just want you to know that you are very [cute/hot]. I'm not hitting on you - my dance card is so full that I'm scribbling in the margins. So, umm, I would not have time to ave. Anything. With you. But I wanted to let you know that you are very attractive. Just, you know, verbal appreciation. Umm. So. Oh, look at the time, I have a panel to go to!"
Fortunately, some of you find the fumbling to be cute instead of a sign of extensive brain damage. So. Go me?
