Wrap It Up

Tonight I joined a nice group for a relaxing (i.e. we didn't have to hurry back for a program item) dinner at Chez Nous French restaurant, where I ordered one of the locally-sourced items: rabbit confit, which I found very nice. Having had a good blood sugar reading earlier today, I felt I could also hazard the creme brulee dessert before waddling back to the hotel. There I spent the evening smoffing on various subjects (Hugo Awards, Worldcon politics, plans for SMOFCon next year) and other things while taking it relatively easy hanging out in the atrium.

It was a very good convention, and I had a good time and feel a lot was accomplished. Because of the computer problems, I just haven't had enough time to write about it all. I refer you to other people's con reports for details. I hope we do as well next year in San Jose.

Now I have to get to bed facing a 6:30 wake-up call to give me time to get dressed and fed, then to walk down to the post office to mail the poster tube to Oregon and get back to the hotel and get a taxi to the airport and stage two of the trip. After all, Monday is a work day for me, albeit one where I'm traveling on the company's expense. Speaking of which, I called Alaska Airlines and cancelled my return ticket. As I expected, the value of the ticket was less than the change fee, and thus it's a write-off.

Sleep, must get sleep.
