Sortof regretting not getting a room at Readercon for Friday night, as well as Saturday.

Not least because then I could have my own room party! I was thinking rum + sea shanty sing + Alestorm singalong, but that was just tentative...

I thought for a half second about seeing if I could book my room for a second night. Then I remembered that I am still poor.

(I mean, unless BRCF writes back tomorrow to say "OMG we thought that editing project last week was going to take you like twelve hours here have All The Money". A man can dream.)

Signs you've spent too much time doing random historical map research: you look at your Google directions for picking people up for Readercon, and think for a split second, "Hey, is that a Roman road?"

In other news, I had a dream last night that BRCF was going to pay me in Bitcoins, and also it turned out that Bitcoins were actually issued as physical objects--little blue plastic squares, labeled in red and gold "Good for Five (5) Bitcoins!" which you then had to redeem online.

Most guys get drunk and hit on women.

I'm too considerate, AND inept, AND terrified.

So I get drunk and invite people to Readercon.

For the roughly two of you who weren't there, I am back from Readercon. I am rather tired, but I had a good con.

I put in to take tomorrow off some while back, during a brief moment when I was under the mistaken impression that the con ended on Monday. (Turns out that's Arisia.) I am going to use it to recover, instead. And perhaps update this in more detail.

Oh, and catch up on what's been going on in these parts of the blogosphere, since I haven't really been online since...Wednesday. Maybe Thursday. Anyway, Sovay, your posts about the Cape look wonderful, but right now I'm going to gracefully fall over.

Posting from Readercon. I've mostly been doing a bunch of volunteering, which I always find weirdly enjoyable. (I have the sort of Wanting To Be Told He's A Good Dog complex, I think.)
The fact that there are free memberships and stuff helps, of course...

Highlights so far have included the (apparently notable) Max Gladstone in pleather pants at the 80s dance, Brimstone Rhine in concert, and going to lots of panels by friends. And a lot of fun hanging out with my fellow geeks.

But we've still got a lot of Con to go...
