Overheard at Potlatch

This is a feature that appears periodically, as we attend conventions and overhear things.  The tradition of keeping track of anonymous overheard bits and bobs started for us at the 2002 ConJose in San Jose, where trying (or trying not to) fill in the blanks on overheard conversations made us laugh so much that we made it a tradition. Since we attended three conventions in March, we're going to spread out the "overheards" over a couple of months so we don't overwhelm you.  These are the things we overheard at Potlatch, the first weekend of March.

"So he's sitting there, tremendously urbane, and there's this...wombat!"

"You head for the sign that says 'Sporty's Bikini Bar' & you'll find the cheese paratha."

"I am a writer; I like to lie!"

"Check out this masive steampunk breastpump we had at the hospital!"

"Can that be their war cry? 'Greek Fire, Yo!'?"
