Subject: [conventions|repost] Announcing JayCon XIII
Security: Public
Tags:cancer, conventions, health, jaycon, jaywake, personal, portland, repost
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.

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.

Ironically we'll be having our annual party that day. We'll raise a glass to you and send you pictures.

Hi Jay, looks like I'll make it to Jaycon this year! Though I'll have to leave about 3:00 or so. Kathy and I will be visiting my mother-in-law in Portland.

The Shockmonster is currently on Gary's Big Beijing Adventure and communications with him are suffering, but as late as the drive to SFO he was bound and determined to come. I'm trying to figure out best driving times. Google Maps gives an estimate of 10.5 hours. Leaving here at 4 Saturday morning might just be the ticket, although I might take advantage of his jet-lag and make him drive at night. :-)

Hola. Deirdre and I will be coming from out of town, and you might not be aware of that. (We're flying in very late Friday evening, but will be car-enabled.) Delighted to join any festivities.
