Well, I was reading the SMOFcon mailing list, and there was an entry from Glenn Glazer in response to the announcement that Seattle is withdrawing its bid for the 2010 SMOFcon. And in Glenn's signature there was a link to the website for the 2011 Westercon in San Jose. At that site I read that photos from their party at SiliCon 2009 were posted on their LiveJournal ( westercon2011sj
). "Oh, I should friend that LJ account!" thought I, so I did. But I was puzzled by the fact that I had no mutual friends in the community. And then
I remembered, oh yeah, that other LJ I set up particularly to interact with fandom... the one I haven't logged on to for seven months
I guess my most notable fannish activity since last March is that I ran the Convention Office at Anticipation. That was, overall, a rewarding experience, plus I got to see much more of the Worldcon than I did when I held the same position at Denvention. Also, I had a terrific time at the first North American Discworld Convention held in Tempe.
Coming up soon, I am going to Loscon, and from there straight to this year's SMOFcon. I won't
be at the 2010 Norwescon for various reasons, not the least of which is that I can never find a parking place at the Doubletree. After that the future is still pretty murky, although I will definitely be in Australia next year. That will be an interesting trip, because the Discworld Convention in the U.K. is the weekend before, so I will be literally flying around the world to attend them both. And almost nothing can keep me away from Reno in 2011.
My health is reasonably good. My family situation sucks big green rotten eggs. Enough said.
Hopefully I will get around to posting again sometime in 2009...
