Hello San Diego

And you are looking lovely this evening.
I am in town. I have signed books for Tor to give away at its booth. I am going to get something to eat, and then I am going to go to sleep, because my brain is still in the Eastern time zone. See some of you, hopefully, at my reading tomorrow (details here). Or later today, since this is likely to go out with an Eastern time zone timestamp. You know what I mean.
Obvious spam comment is obvious? Waits for the mallet, and wishes out host a pleasant time in San Diego.
Wow that is the single most interesting spam I think I’ve ever seen. I hope you’re enjoying San Diego…and are being appropriately smartly-favored.
I agree that the smartly-favored one is the most interesting thing here so far.
Wish I could wonder by the Tor booth….
And I concur re fish tacos
Wow, I don’t know if I could do what you do. My sister is always taking off to various and sundry countries for her job. I wouldn’t be able to cope with the displacement after a time. Then again I might meditate more as a result. In any case, enjoy the event!
Front page article in Sacramento Bee today about harassment at San Diego’s Comic-Con extensively quoted a “prominent sci-fi author” who is holding his event away from the main premises to protest lax anti-harassment policies. Any guesses who? Rock and roll, John!
I love San Diego. I spent six years there. I always say I moved back to Seattle 20 years ago and have spent most of that time trying to figure out how to get back.
Beautiful city in a beautiful part of the country.
San Diego is a great place to visit. Hope you have a blast!
Front page article in the LA Times about harassment featuring you as well, John, describing both the problem and people seeking remedies.
I think the first sentence of the spam comment is a subtle time-travel statement.
scalzi is away for the weekend… if the wife came with him again.. wonder if we will get a post of yet another mailbox that was victimized on monday. Also wonder if there will be an article in the local paper ‘police called to local celebrity home due to loud noise and underage drinking’.
note.. my cousin actually did this when she was a teen. had the furniture taken outside to make room for a band. she didnt just lose tractor privileges either, no car, no phone, no friends, for a long time. when she was an adult she said she would do it again. the uncle in question confessed to my grandmother(when he was 50) that he was out smoking weed as a teenager when she thought he was studying at the mall. so i can identify with this.
