Yesterday Lisa Costello departed for New Mexico, where she is attending a conference in Santa Fe. This morning, Jersey Girl in Portland and I skedaddle to San Jose for SFWA's Nebula Awards Weekend. My Dad and (step)Mom will be there tomorrow, as will my Aunt B— and Uncle L— from Texas. [info]the_child also flies down to San Jose tomorrow to attend the Nebula Awards banquet and ceremony with the able assistance of Crystal Black.

I'll do some socializing and maybe some business whilst in San Jose, then I'll have the fun of watching myself lose the Nebula. Let's put it this way: I don't even have an acceptance speech prepared. In the extremely unlikely event that I win, I'll wing it. Luckily for both me and my potential audience, I am ferociously good at winging it.

Crack of Sunday, I light out for New Mexico my own self. This trip is completely unrelated to Lisa's, as I am heading for Rio Hondo, but our automobile will pause whilst passing through Santa Fe on the way from Albuquerque to Taos for us to have a snack and visit with Lisa, who by amusing coincidence will still be there. After that, I'm for a week at Rio Hondo. (I'm not sure about the connectivity at Rio Hondo, so blogging may be erratic next week.)

All in all, a very good ten days or so coming up.

I didn't find connectivity to be too bad when I was at Taos Toolbox last summer, Jay.

Now, go win a Nebula or something.

Sounds great, Jay. Enjoy yourself. And dust the shelf just in case---I have a feeling you'll be putting another award there.

Ah, the "Fuck, I won a H/u/g/o Nebula" approach to acceptance speeches.
