This is a relatively rare shot of me not wearing my glasses, as Lisa complained that the flash was reflecting off them.
Then we went off for what we intended to be a brief visit to other parties; however, we ended up hung up at the Daicon (Japanese National SF Convention) party, where Lisa spent quite a while practicing her Japanese on the fans there, who were very indulgent with her.
Then we headed down to the Montreal in 2009 Worldcon bid, where I took some more photos.

I took a shot of Lisa in her WSFS uniform, carrying Kuma Bear in his Bear-o-Metric chamber.

Many parties were too crowded to do more than pass through or sometimes pass by because there was no space to enter the room. I'm really surprised that more people aren't heading out onto the Lanai decks -- that's the open patio areas outside the rooms. There's plenty of room and the weather is pleasant and mild, and certainly less stuffy than inside the rooms.
We returned to the Interaction party, which was no exception to the crowding rule. Lisa and I were both tired and returned to the room, planning to get to bed fairly soon, but in dealing with our respective issues -- me trying to deal with e-mail, uploading photos, and Lisa not feeling well -- it took much longer to wind down than we wanted. As soon as I get this posted, I have to get to bed, because I still have to be up at 7 AM if I want to be ready for the Business Meeting at 10.
