After the Westercon Business Meeting, Linda Deneroff helpfully agreed to sit behind the Montreal bid table for a couple of hours while Lisa and I moved from room 3005 where we originally were staying to the adjacent room, loft suite 3007, where we will host a Montreal party tonight and the "Next Stop, Yokohama!" party tomorrow night.
Kudos to Westercon and pentaclemoon
for being efficient with my request to just stay in 3007 for the duration, rather than have to move back to 3005 on Tuesday morning. When I went to the front desk, everything was in order and they handed me the second set of keys. After a couple of hours of shuffling things around (and bringing up party supplies from the van), we'd reached the point where Lisa could send me back to the table while she went out to do some shopping.
We haven't received our own Montreal Bon Ami t-shirts yet, so I had printed the Montreal logo on t-shirt transfer paper and we were going to iron them on plain t-shirts. Lisa looked at my printed transfers and pointed out that I'd forgotten to reverse the image. D'Oh! But she went and talked to Fo'Paws, and Scott & Jane Dennis said that if we brought them the image (which I gave them on a USB key), they could print us a couple of shirts by tonight. Saved!
After coming back from the first shopping expedition, Lisa made me a sandwich and brought it to me here at the bid table (that's where I am as I write this) and headed back to the room to get her own lunch and rest for a short time. We'll close a little early this afternoon so we can move the bid table stuff to the room, go out and have dinner, and then do the final food shopping before starting to set up for the party, which starts at 9 PM.
