View From a Hotel Window, 2/11/16: Dallas, TX
Posted on February 11, 2016 Posted by John Scalzi 16 Comments
I’m here in the Lone Star State for ConDFW, where I am the guest of honor along with Seanan McGuire, so if you you’re in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and have a hankerin’ to meet me (or Seanan), this is the time. The convention starts tomorrow. Right now, I’m likely to take a little nap.
That’s quite the view of an interchange!
You will probably be taken care of but if there is a Pappadeux’s nearby – indulge! (there is one in the airport at least)
Welcome to Texas! Enjoy the weather and convention…this weekend’s going to be very nice!
Nap……meat coma, tomayto, tomahto.
welcome to Dallas! too bad I will be in Vegas while you’re here.
Thanks for letting us know. Salad is a cool city.
So is Dallas. Crap.
Welcome to my hometown. Only I am in Midland, TX, and cannot come this weekend. But my never married 36 year old son (with girlfriend) Preston will be there! Say Hi! to him when you see the 6’4″ blue-eyed blond Scalzi fan.
Other than Blindsight, are you aware of any sci-fi with aliens that are really alien to humankind and don’t come across as human minds in alien bodies? I just finished The End of All Things and was struck (again) how all aliens in most sci-fi seem to be so human in their thought processes. Just asking. Great novel!
I like how that building has black windows because so did the buildings at the beginning of the TV series Dallas.
By the way, as my old T-shirt says, I shot JR. But then I went back in a time machine and framed someone else for it. Changed history.
That’s not a very good view of the parking lot. You should ask for another room.
I’m sorry you are in Texas.
Deep breath. Phoenix Comicon survived Seanan and Scalzi in the same place at the same time. Surely Dallas will as well.
That looks like you’re staying at the Reunion. You should hop over the Bob’s Chop House in the Omni and tell Anthony Martinez that I (his mom) sent you. I will buy you a glass of wine. :)
Drove right by you coming to work this morning ;)
loved Fort Worth and Dallas. Great food!
I saw a picture of a panel with you and my good friend Bill Crider. Have fun.
