[travel|conventions] Sunday, Sunday, can't touch that day in the swimsuit area

Almost out of here. karindira is coming by in an hour or two to give me a ride home as she and Big T wend their way south. danjite and khaybee are off to the Olympics for some temperate rainforest R&R. lasirenadolce is going back to her digs. The Montana reunion draws to an end. (Though we'll all be in Portland next weekend for JayCon VII/J-Con I. Will you be?)

The Locus Awards and the SF Hall of Fame inductions were great. Saw many old friends, made some new ones, had a total fanboy moment with Gene Wolfe which left me babbling for a while — he knew who I was, OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!! — as well as doing some bidness, enjoying some parties, and learning from Greg Bear the true (and somewhat unprintable) secret known only to long-term SFWA ascended masters. Have a lot to process, lot of email to do, some stories to write.

Tomorrow Mother of the Child and I sign the papers on Nuevo Rancho Lake. On a more banal note, I'm also going to the stylist tomorrow, so as to be right purty for JayCon. Sunday the 24th is a moving day, so if you're going to be around Portland and want free pizza and my benison, I could use the help.

Also don't forget the latest caption contest voting poll. Some mighty funny stuff there.

Y'all play nice while I'm on the road. If you're real lucky, I might do some car blogging.
