It’s… Tuesday, right?
The thing about six days at a science fiction convention is that it well and truly messes with your time sense, and I suspect it will take at least a couple of days to get back on Real Life Time.
So: Tuesday? I’m pretty sure about this. I’m just asking for confirmation, is all.
Yes, it’s Tuesday, August 18th.
Oh, good, that means I’ve already started the next novel.
Oh, cool, so you have perfected time travel. That must be the big announcement.
Tuesday, indeed. Which means I’ve moved back to Paris, and my back hurts. And that you’ve received hundreds of congratulations on your Hugo – but here’s one more. I think it’s wonderful you got an award for a book inspired by your blog.
Plus you were in Canada, so the metric/imperial thing is probably throwing you off.
Glad I could help, John. And speaking on behalf of the International Cabal of Entrepreneurial Scalzi Internet Minions and Sycophants, we’re awfully glad to hear you’ve already started on your next novel.
Why yes, this is Belgium.
Obscure films for 3000, Alex.
(Oh, and congrats on the Hugo!)
Yes, it is Tuesday, but it is also the far, far future. The year is 2009!
The Moody Blues assure me it is so.
Yes, but only for another three hours or so.
Write like the wind my friend.
You know what helps a person get back to normal after an exciting world con or other travel? Stepping in a cold pile of cat puke. Maybe Ghlaughee could help you out?
Well, it’s grey, so it’s either that or Wednesday.
A few more hours and you can link to the Moody Blues Song.
Hmmm. The RSS feed from IsItTuesday.com is down, but yes, I think it is.
According to the Aztec calendar, today is Malinalli. But you, with your smug white privilege, probably don’t even care.
If I get to have Malinalli off on a regular basis, then I care very much.
Back in my youth, dog show circuits used to do the same thing to my time sense- I remember seeing a sign on a crate saying ‘If this is Tuesday, it must be Eugene.’
Aw man, you won a Hugo! In Montreal. Stop rubbing it in.
My time sense is fairly messed up because I spent the past week w/10,000 of my closest friends at Cooper’s Lake, PA at the SCA’s annual Pennsic War. A week (or two) spent living (kinda) medievally, camping w/no outside news will really mess with your head. I’m still reeling from John Hughes death, and celebrating our 3rd female (and first Hispanic) member of the Supremes.
You can ignore the news of the (i’m sure) at Worldcon – there is no news of the day at Pennsic. (not that there’s anything wrong with that…)
Damn it’s Tuesday. Where did Monday go. I don’t have a convention to blame.
Yes, it’s Tuesday. Dawn must be in trouble again.
i was thinking, “no, it’s monday!” i’ve been thinking it is monday all day. geez. thanks for clarifying the day for me. :)
“If it’s Tuesday, this must be…Ohio?”
Alisa, maybe it was Monday until John posted, and the power of a Hugo-winning blog can warp reality. Congratulations for maintaining a connection, however tenuous, to the unaltered universe.
Actually, its Wednesday – at least in New Zealand. Where did you say you were?
He didn’t disclose his location. Which means he may be Dick Cheney.
