Tags:calendula, conventions, portland, seattle, travel
SteamCon has been fun, albeit low key. calendula_witch and I arrived earlier than expected, with a deeply surprising lack of traffic fail given the awful weather and the usual Friday afternoon crowded highway between Portland and Seattle. Ran into Tim and Serena Powers in the parking lot, who were gracious enough to help us with our bags. Ran into Duane Wilkinson just inside, all of which eventually devolved (through some mechanism mysterious to me) in us being invited to dinner by Megan Lindholm later that evening, in company with Tim, Serena, Duane and some of Megan's family.

After that, it was pretty much barcon, with fly bys from cmdrsuzdal, johnnyeponymous, marykaykare, cmpriest, blackaire, tamiam and, erm, lots of other people.

(Please note, it can be hard to see people in the bar. The chairs have high backs and don't face the lobby for the most part, so if you're looking for us, and you think we're there, it's worth stepping in and actually looking around.)

Early to bed, not so early to rise, some quiet couple time and a long walk, and now we're almost ready for our day. I'll be reading at 2 pm in a joint hour with catrambo, and holding forth on steampunk literature at 4 pm.

See some, all or none of you around here today.

I was so looking forward to your reading and also your Steampunk Lit 101 panel, but discovered that "morning" sickness waits for no con. If there's a girl with really dark auburn/brown hair, about The Child's age, in that second one, that's Cora (you wouldn't recognize her because I don't put any pics publicly available online).
