Just so you know. Not fallen down a well or eaten by grues or anything. Reno is fun. Hope where you are in the world is fun too.
Where in the world is Scalzi Sandiego? ; ) Have a fun weekend.
Reno’s pretty well-lit 24/7, so you should be okay on the grue front.
I recommend the Steakhouse at Atlantis. Make Captain John cook for you. The spinach salad and steak diane are excellent.
We saw pics of you in a link from the Locus website, so we know you’re hard at “work.” Keep having fun!
Grue are cool.
I would be having more fun if I were in Reno, but I’m having a decent weekend. From the reports I’ve read, I’m feeling rather pleased at how most of the Business Meeting turned out.
You could have tried playing Portals/Jonathan Coultons “Still Alive” on your Ukulele…
And most importantly, you have NOT been shot by Johnny Cash just so he could watch you die.
The library is understaffed today, and as person-impersonating-a-figure-of-authority, I get to fill in wherever needed. I’m not as young as I used to be, 4 hours on the circulation desk on my feet hurts more (get off’n my lawn!!) Still nothing has caught fire, burned down, fallen over, and sunk into the swamp, so we’re still tentatively good.
Grues! I thought they were all dead, it’s been so long since I last heard anything about them. Man, now how am I gonna sleep at night? I still have scars from my last tangle with’em!
Grooes? What about Groo? Just because he is a wanderer who causes havoc anywhere he travels is no reason to expect him to eat you. ~raised eybrow~
Reno’s full of lights, you only get eaten by grues when you’re walking around in the dark.
You say it is fun, but do you grok fun? Really grok it? All nice and deep like? If so, the hells bells I wish I were there too!
Thanks for the delightful and entertaining reading today, John!
It was AWESOME! *throws the horns*

If you want to go Burnerwatching (Burning Man starts next week so they’ll be trickling in), may I recommend the Walgreens above I-80 at 750 Virginia Street. Look, there’s a Blue-Headed Darkwad buying some Gatorade!
Great to see you at WorldCon.
Had a blast meeting you at WorldCon, and especially attending your reading.
