Oh My! You have blogs!

I seem to remember something about how you weren't going to do this...;)

I have blogs. I wasn't going to do this, and then I, um, did.

You will probably approve of Kickery - do you think it will help or hurt with grad school applications?

I can't come, but I hope you have fun! And I'm glad you made it out of the weekend intact!

Good. Syndicated, both of them, and watched. ;)

Saturday night - catch up time?

For sure. Not sure if I want to bother with the dance this year or not. You?

Other than to possibly give Heather her b-day present, no dance for me, thank you.

Skip dance, check. :)

My vague plan for Saturday night was to go to the DISTAFF reception and then get dinner.

Kalamazoo related:

The best restaurant, R. Stanley's, lost its lease, so while they're regrouping your best bet is downtown (Howard downhill to Stadium, left on Stadium, stick with it through the wiggles, and finally right onto Michigan -- through four or five lights, (past the Radisson with its hot-curler tower, around the left-dogleg) over the railroad tracks and look ahead left -- Food Dance coming up on the corner. Turn left, then right into their lot. And get them to point out Water Street Coffee Joint and Bell's Brewry to you -- both visible, both desirable, but harder to describe navigating. (In a pinch, down Howard, across Stadium, uphill, right at the Oakland light and the other Water Street Coffee Joint will be on your left after the first light and after the little mall but before the second light.)


Thanks, rams! I've never driven in Kalamazoo so this is very helpful.

I arrived yesterday. I'm still torn between your session and another being held at the same time. I suspect I won't end up deciding until the last minute.

If you do make it to mine, please say hello!

I shall! And if you see a woman with long hair wearing glasses and a hat, that's likely me (I think people notice my hats before they notice me).

I have long hair and glasses too - generic female geek look #1! No hat, though.

I've just gotten in to the airport (Grand Rapids, whose wifi is much easier to deal with than O'Hare's) and will wander over to Kalamazoo as soon as my luggage turns up.

Susan... Do you want me to post the link to those photos I have of you?

I know what Susan looks like. I met her at a dance she taught in Boston in 2002, and saw her talk at Kalamazoo last year.

There's a picture of me at http://flickr.com/photos/kightp/396008897/in/set-72157594166653136/

I'm sorry I didn't get to your session or see you.* Emily provided details about your talks during dinner. It sounds like it went well!

* I can't feel too bad about missing it, though; one of the speakers at the session I attended needed a laptop and couldn't get one, so I was able to help her out by setting her up with mine.

I know what Susan looks like

Ah, but that photo I have shows her with a sheep, a toy sheep, mind you, but a sheep nonetheless. And speaking of sheep... I am still awaiting her explanation as to what Life's Vibration Parlors truly are, as opposed to what my fervid and fetid mind could conjure up.

Our session had a plethora of laptops. I'm sorry to have missed you at Kalamazoo; hopefully next time I can make a longer trip and have time to actually meet up with people.

I had the trip from hell coming home.

I can't possibly explain unless I get more guesses. Rixo needs conversational recruits! :) (It's sort of like an Open Thread, except that I don't have enough readers for a viable Open Thread.)

More quesses? Butbutbut... I've already suggested basic sheep-involving bestiality with Gene Wilder, and an uplifted ewe spy. What more could one conjure up without being arrested for even thinking it?

I read about your return trip. At least you got home safely! My trip home was uneventful, despite all the driving in the pouring rain. There wasn't even much of a line at the border.

I'm in Baltimore right now, but I'm expecting to go home again just as Balticon starts.
