Quarter-Century of Fandom

Today is my 44th birthday, and also approximately the 25th anniversary of my entrance to convention-attending fandom, as I attended my first SF genre convention, L.A.con II, the 1984 World Science Fiction Convention, around this time 25 years ago.

I don't have anything profound to say. Most years I get a Worldcon for my birthday, or else I'm traveling to or from one. Before that, birthdays were merely the Day of Doom as it meant school started the following Tuesday. So I've rarely done special things on my birthday. Indeed, today is an ordinary work day for me, so I'd better get back to it.
