Conventions for the rest of 2012 [Aug. 31st, 2011|12:22 pm]
Marissa Lingen
[Tags|, ]

A couple of my friends have done this recently, so I am reminded that perhaps I should too: post my planned con schedule for the rest of the year, that is.

Farthing Party, September 23-25, Montreal, QC. Technically not a con, but very like one.

Conjecture 2, October 14-16, Bloomington, MN. The Minn-StF fallcon. I will probably bake again. You have been warned.

World Fantasy Convention, October 27-30, San Diego, CA. My God. It's full of monkeys. Their seafaring theme should provide endless entertainment for those of you amused by my accent, as you will have innumerable opportunities to make me say "about boats."

Will I see you at these? Let me know if I should look for you (arrange dinner with you, whatever). Here or on e-mail.

what a nice smile you have, in this icon.

I wish I was going to be somewhere near those places at that time. I could use some smiles!

Hey, thanks. That icon was taken at World Fantasy Con in Texas, where dolphin__girl had just fixed my hair into my necklace as a tiara, and I am pleased and a little stunned to have happened upon a life where I have women friends who do that sort of thing. But it is not a bad icon for "what I look like at cons if you are looking for me."

it's very nice - necklace, tiara, hair and smile. Yay for such friends, as well.

Oh, you're confirmed for World Fantasy? I'm still waffling over it, but it's good to know you'll be there.

Great. I need to do whatever it is that one does to get off the fence about this. Maybe buy one of them airplane thingies. I just got back from San Diego, so thinking about travel is hard. But I won't feel that way in late October.

Ooh, if you buy an airplane, take me for a ride in it at World Fantasy!

After the incident where I was given an involuntary helicopter ride from timprov's stoned next-door neighbor in college, I am a little careful how I phrase these things!

Well, that sounds like a story I need to hear in detail.

Airplane ticket! That is how I need to get to San Diego. Driving through the desert is for the birds!

I'm pretty sure the birds don't drive through the desert either.

I hope you already have a membership, because they've been seriously sold out for some time now.

Yes, I have one. What I'm waffling over is whether to keep it and spend $ on plane ticket/hotel, or to sell it and skip the con.

Daniel and I are planning to be at WFC. We should definitely do lunch or dinner or something!

I'll be at Farthing, probably Conjecture, and not at WFC. You're probably not surprised at any of those. See you in three weeks!

I'll only be at local cons for the rest of 2011.

Kinda nice that Conjecture will be a local con though. :)

I will, in fact, appear at the Farthing Party! Probably only for the 25th (possibly also the evening of the 24th, depending on flight details) but I shall finally break my FP duck.
