Why I Try to Fly Out the Day Before

SMOFCon Programming doesn't start until this afternoon, so there was no particular hurry to get up this morning. This is good because even getting up at 9 AM means 6 AM by my body clock. I was out in New Jersey just long enough to get use to the time change, whereupon I went home and readjusted -- and repeated the process by flying back to the east coast yesterday. Bleah.

200 SMOFs A-Smoffing…

With some 215 members (as of Friday evening), this SMOFCon is really humming. This could have been very unfortunate had our social space been even the largest hotel suite. However, the social space is actually a hotel ballroom section, with lots of chairs, tables, couches, and plenty of room to socialize without feeling like we're in a mosh pit.

This led us to the dinner break. We originally were pointed at the Legal Sea Foods "Test Kitchen" in Terminal A of the adjacent Logan Airport. Unfortunately, the Test Kitchen is airside, so Cheryl and I walked around through to Terminal C to the main Legal Sea Foods, where we had an excellent seafood meal with large fannish contingents on both sides of us. (We had dithered over going out to dinner, and most of the people with whom we would have likely dined had either already left or were just coming back from their early dinners to which they went because they skipped the afternoon programming.

The evening social gets a separate entry.
