It was a short Windycon meeting tonight, which given that it's still July, was probably a good thing.

Next meeting is going to be a good bit more busy. :)

Progress

We had a useful Windycon meeting tonight. Now, we can sort some things out. :)

I got back from Marcon stupidly late and then plunged back into work today.

Work is being very cold and wet...
billroper: (Default)
If I can get the van packed, I can be on my way to Marcon.

Sadly, I don't think that will be accomplished before the next meeting.

Charge!

There is nothing like preparing to go to a con and realizing that none of the electronics for the dealer table have been charged recently. Nor have I actually tried pairing the Square readers with the new phone.

I could set up the pairing, of course, but that would require that the readers be charged.

*gleep*

Marcon is coming up shortly and I will be driving that way soon.

The question is: Can I finish everything that needs to be done before I leave town?

Magic 8-Ball says: Outlook cloudy. Ask again later.

We are home from FilkONtario and really, really tired. The trip took a bit longer than we'd expected, despite excellent weather. The big glitch was a wreck that happened on the 401 while we were stopped at one of the enRoutes. Traffic was massively backed up, as the wreck forced traffic into a single lane on the shoulder. Given that they were just finishing cleaning it up as we passed by the scene of the accident, it's entirely possible that we would have been there when the accident was happening if we hadn't stopped, so the stop looked better and better, all things considered.

I had a good time at the con, but traveling long distances with the girls is being challenging. We need to figure this out.

Of course, we have a year before the next FKO...

Our heroes have had breakfast and are now trying to get cleaned up and back on the road. See some of you soon!

We had a Windycon meeting tonight, after which Tracy and I spent some time talking to Gundo about what he'd like to see for Special Events this year. Some progress was made, which was good.

Home Again

I'm home from Dorsai Thing and really, really tired. But the conversation and singing were good. I even got to play a bit of the shard game in Ingress.

And we watched Moana tonight, which is an excellent film and seems to me like it should be on Hugo short lists.

Bed, though. Bed is acutely needed.

To quote Bill Sutton's mom, "He never used to rhyme Wang with Thing until he moved to Atlanta."

But Bill is back in the Indianapolis area now and the habit has apparently stuck.

See some of you there!

Tonight was the dress rehearsal for the talent show. It was also the night of the Windycon meeting and, since I needed to talk to Gundo about what he wanted for Special Events, the right thing to do was to go down to the meeting. Sadly, Gundo was sick and not able to make the meeting, so although we talked about a number of things, I probably would have been more useful at the dress rehearsal.

I figured I'd grab dinner at the food court at the mall next door. It had rained all the way down there and was still raining when I went in to eat.

When I came out, it was raining a bit more heavily, but not so badly that I didn't figure I should wait. And about 20 feet out the door, the deluge started. I was getting pretty thoroughly soaked, but at least I kept the book I was reading dry. (One must have priorities.)

As I got to the car and unlocked the door, my phone's alert system announced, "Heavy precipitation detected in your area!"

No, really?

I'd say better late than never, but maybe not so much.

And we're back from Capricon after a nice dinner with assorted Midkiffs and Romans.

Ruby is very happy to see us.

Last night, I dreamed that I had completely spaced Saturday's SpaceTime Theater show at Capricon and failed to show up for it. *sigh*

Too much to do, not enough time to do it. :)

See you at the con!

Packed!

The van is packed up and ready to go to Capricon. We're not ready, but that's a different problem altogether.

Having succeeded in reordering from most of our suppliers, we have more CDs than we have had in quite a while. This includes [livejournal.com profile] quadrivium's Scattering Seeds on the Pomegranate Tour and two new albums from Heather Dale, Spark and Queens of Avalon with S.J. Tucker and the matching DVD for the latter. (Matching the CD, not Sooj. :) )

Now, if I can just get done with work...

We're rehearsing for our Capricon SpaceTime Theater show tomorrow.

I have to remember to be funny. Funny would be good.

The train labeled "Capricon" is on the tracks and moving steadily toward the station. It looks like everyone and everything that needs to be on board is, at least as of this afternoon's meeting.

Meanwhile, Julie is feeling better, but her throat is still sore. With luck, she'll be much better tomorrow.

I am home from Confusion, where I had a good time. But I am really tired. :)
billroper: (Default)
I am at Confusion and recovered from the tummy bug, although the lingering cough has still left me without a singing voice. Almost two months of this is enough.

Meanwhile, back at home, Katie appears to now have the tummy bug, making it a clean sweep of the Roper family.

OK, there is little clean about this.
billroper: (Default)
I am feeling somewhat better, although nowhere near well yet. However, I am supposed to leave for Confusion in the morning.

With any reasonable luck, I will.
