Running On Fumes

I just can't even think straight about summarizing things today. Lisa and I went on the Donbura-Con dinner cruise, which had decent food and a nice ride, although Lisa was quickly driven from the front deck due to the noise from the sound system, which kept cutting in and hour and was very distracting. She spent a great deal of the cruise talking with Japanese fans, stretching her limited Japanese and their English, but often using Kuma Bear as a conversation starter.

After the cruise, we changed into our WSFS uniforms -- of course, we wouldn't have worn those on the cruise, lest we cause any confusion or offense to our hosts -- and went over to the Anticipation/Montreal 2009 Worldcon Victory Party, which was going strong in the Harbor Suite of the Convention Center. With the weather having turned relatively mild, this was a great venue, with hectares of outdoor space into which we could spill and no neighbors to annoy, save seagulls.

A little after midnight, we started making our way back over to the hotel across the walkways that connect the Exhibit Halls to the Intercontinental Hotel, and I stopped to take a photo of the hotel.

There's more I could write, but I'm beat. I'm going to post a short summary of WSFS Business and go to bed. Because the con ends so early tomorrow, we must get our acts together first thing and get over the to the Exhibit Hall when it opens tomorrow at 10 AM. Closing Ceremonies at Noon on Monday. We'll probably wear our WSFS uniforms again, it being the last chance for a while to get some use out of them.
