8/4/09 04:53 pm - The Grand Tour
Lisa and I are not -actually- doing a grand tour--but we are doing enough cons this ye\
ar that one could argue it anyway. Spring cons included Lunacon(Rye, NY), Concertino \
(NEfilk Massachusets), Origins (Columbus), Dexcon (NJ), Intercon (Mass.), Balticon (Ba\
ltimore), and this past weekend, drcpunk and I took a quick flight over to L\
ondon to make HarmUnu (and Unicon in general, as we did have non-filking UK friends in\
attendence). (and in terms of trips, I suppose I have to count my cruise with pocketnaomi to Alaska, with Seattle on the way).
It was great. Expensive in both money and energy, of course, but much fun and we got \
to both reconnect with old friends from that side of the pond and meet and chat with n\
ew friends. I even got a few games in.
This coming week, naturally enough, we're planning on taking a train up to Montreal t\
o attend Worldcon.
And we -hope- to also make PiCon this summer...not that we've planned for it even a li\
ttle bit--it just sounds fun.
