About Last Night

This is what I did with my evening:

  • Hosted a singles meet and greet, because apparently I am Dr. Love;
  • Got kicked out of the Asimov’s/Analog party (along with nearly everyone else) when the hotel security shut it down;
  • Taught people how deaf people applaud;
  • Showed Robert Silverberg how to Twitter;
  • Rocked the Rock Band version of Journey’s “Any Way You Want It” on the vocals;
  • Caught up with the Viable Paradise Alumni and popogated widom (intentionally misspelled) to some recent Clarionites;
  • And basically had a fine all time.

And now I’m about to be late to my own reading. Later.

I enjoy pie.

Dang. Hope Reno is this much fun. :(

At least MArko and I will be there with guns. His pistols. And my biceps! Kazaaam!!!

I’m giving the gold medal winner award to “showed Robert Silverberg how to Twitter.” Man, that’s really awesome. :D

And then I wanna see that video of the Journey-rockin’

I have never been to a Con party so wild that hotel security shut it down. I know of one I missed though. On the common bulletin board one Sunday morning I saw a notice that read, “What kind of chicken establishment is this that doesn’t allow salad oil in the jacuzzi!?” Was the A/A party anything like that?

I, too, want to hear more about this AA meeting that got shut down by the hotel. I’ve go to AA meetings every week for 12+ years, and we have parties frequently, and I’ve never heard of that happening before.

Oh, wait. AA=Asimov’s/Analog? I see. That makes sense.

Never mind.

I, too, want to know how deaf people applaud — need to know, actually, since (in my late 70’s) “hard-of-hearing” progressed to “deaf as a post” (if you’ll excuse the Technical Terminology).

# Hosted a singles meet and greet, because apparently I am Dr. Love;

We were wondering if this came off back in Prog Ops when I remembered that the last time I had seen you, you were headed that way on time and that all would be well.

# Got kicked out of the Asimov’s/Analog party (along with nearly everyone else) when the hotel security shut it down;

I think the days of the Asimov’s/Analog party being held in the SFWA suite should be over. Give out the awards in function space, serve the cake in public and then have a private reception elsewhere. I, as a subscriber to Asimov’s, am hurt that I was not invited to the awards.
