Still No Time

3 AM again and no entries from today. Frankly, I was having too much fun to come back to the room and spend time writing about it. We actually got a chance to walk around an look at a few things (just as they were being torn down), we had a late lunch with fr_john, and then went to the Closing Ceremonies. While we were sitting waiting for them to start, I learned only then that Nippon 2007 wanted all of the committee to come on stage during their part of the ceremony. I left Lisa with Father John and headed back stage. The rest of that story will need another entry.

After that, we went back to the room. Lisa was still not feeling that well and needed to rest for a few hours. I changed into more comfortable clothes and headed back downstairs and hung around for a while. I ran into cherylmorgan in the bar and we both went and had something to eat. I then went back to my room, where Lisa, after three or so hours of rest, was feeling well enough to head to the Former Worldcon Chairs' Party. Again, that needs an entry of its own.

After 90 minutes or so, Lisa was fading out again and went back to the room, but told me to stay as long as I liked. As I was starting to leave just after Midnight, I got a phone call from David Clark pinning me back into the room at least long enough for us to hold an impromptu BASFA meeting. (It was Monday, and it was dark outside...) At 12:52, I raised a Question of Privilege saying that if I waited much longer to leave, my wife might kill me, which acting Chair David Gallaher interpreted as a motion to Adjourn, and I went back to the room.

By now, Lisa was hungry -- remember that at dinnertime she was sick and in bed. So we walked down to Denny's for a late dinner.

Returning to the hotel, we were both awake, so we took the opportunity to move most of the boxes of stuff to the van. This means we'll probably only need two trips in the morning. However, now we need to get some sleep so we can get moving in the late morning. We don't want to be driving during morning rush, and we want to be clear of the LA metro area before afternoon rush begins.

Across from us in the parking garage was a Range Rover with this license plate.

I know who this must be even though I've never seen this particular vehicle or plate.

I used to have California license plate SF IN O2 -- California does not allow the number zero, so I had to use the letter O instead. I never got around to getting CONJOSE plates, although I did consider it.

Edit, 8/29 9:20 PM: Added photo.
