ETA: We will be having my living wake, the JayWake on Saturday, July 27th. This will be a celebration of my life and a giant flip of the bird to my death. Including both a wake and a roast. Watch this space for more details.

Every year, some people tell me that I need to announce JayCon early so they can get it in on their calendars. Every year, some people tell me I need to announce JayCon later, because they don't plan that far ahead. Sometimes, these are the same people. So starting now, and going on through the spring, I will be reposting this announcement with occasional edits or updates as needed.

In celebration of my natal anniversary, JayCon XIII, my 13th annual 37th birthday party, is Saturday, June 15th, 2013 from 2 to 5 pm at the Flying Pie in SE Portland. We're partying because I was born, and because I have beat cancer again and again and again we may not ever get to do this again.

If you can read this, you're invited. Prior JayCon experience not required.

Also, if you're coming from out of town, and you think I might not be aware of that, please contact me. There are some limited capacity extended festivities from Friday to Sunday.

Flying Pie Pizzeria
7804 SE Stark Street
Portland, 97215

As is traditional for JayCon, Paul M. Carpentier is specifically not invited.

Thanks for inviting me, Jay. I appreciate it.

While I cannot make it, I wish you a happy 37th, and the consumption of much excellent pizza. Know I'll be thinking of you.

Looks like we might be in Portland for JayCon. If so, we will endeavor to make it.
