True, you've been there but the dealers' room was packed and
very diverse. The costume contest had more entries than ever
before, with some unusually elaborate outfits--and the
traditional Miss Aggiecon contest was won by a nine-foot long
paper mâché Jabba the Hutt complete with prehensile tongue. The
after-contest gathering and general mingling was brought to an
abrupt halt by the entrance of guest relations officer Jennifer
Franz. Jennifer, it must be pointed out, arrived decked out as
Trinity from The Matrix in all her glossy black glory, and the
abrupt silence was broken by the sound of every single guy's jaw
in the place hitting the floor at the same time. And I finally
found a copy of the Farscape soundtrack in the dealers' room--
this was a Good Thing for me, as I absolutely love all things
