WEEKENDS ARE SERIOUS BUSINESS

Well, in between experimenting with the bread robot, playing Civ and EVE, and other wastes of time, I finished all the library books* and assembled another bookcase. This allowed me to empty another couple boxes of books, which gives me a little more floor space to work in. Go me!

I was thinking about taking part in this...well, I guess it's a meme...over at beatonna's LJ. Being the odd combination of shy and cynical that I am, though, I decided it wasn't for me. I can't see my younger self actually paying attention to the nearly endless string of "good news/bad news" anecdotes older me would inflict on him, and there isn't that much of it that would be funny to other people. Not in the "laughing with" as opposed to the "laughing at" category, anyway.

*I'm re-reading Yellow Eyes, as it's been too long since I read the first chapters online.

Not ready to walk away just yet

I'm probably not going to go to Otakon next month, if only because expensive hotels are expensive and cheap hotels are too far away...I'd considered staying at the Laurel Days Inn Suites and commuting via BWI and the light rail system, but this program was clearly full of fail and almost certainly would have led to losing my hat. Bad plan. Still mulling over Capclave, the successor to Disclave; while some acquaintances of mine will be there, I have less than no interest in the GoH and the vibe I get from it is Minicon right after the HRMP Wars ended. Sod that for a game of "trufen". So most likely the next con I'll go to will either be Katsucon next February or Detour. (Because I pretty much HAVE to go to Detour.) Whether I'll do anything at these conventions is another matter, as far as volunteering or being on staff goes.
