Leaving on a jet plane


I’m not sure how likely it is I’m going to have time for blogging over the next few days. See, tomorrow, at 11:55am, Jodi and I are planning on getting on a two-part flight to Minneapolis, Minnesota. I say “planning” because flights have this annoying tendency of getting delayed by an hour pretty well every time I’m supposed to get on one.

Plans for the week’s vacation include visiting the science museum, one of the two zoos, visiting with all sorts of super-awesome people we’ve met on the blogosphere (e.g. Ben and Stephanie Zvan, Tim and Carrie Iwan, and I’m kinda hoping to collect PZ Myers and the rest of Quiche Moraine to fill my autograph book), and of course, we’ll be spending four of our vacation days devoted exclusively to CONvergence, a sci-fi/fantasy/skeptics/nerddom convention. The Skepchicks have a track there called SkepchiCON, which we’re both looking forward to participating in as much as possible. I’m of course interested in the panels being hosted by some of those same blog heroes mentioned earlier, but will make sure to stop and check out some of the less heady events, such as Gnome Punting and Advanced Zombie Survival.

If you’re one of the few people that my dear, hermitous wife has allowed to follow her on Twitter, she’ll be live-tweeting our goings-on. I’ll have my laptop, but I can’t guarantee I’ll get to live-blog much of anything. Will probably put together catch-up posts once I get some time.

Anyway, almost time for bed. Onward to adventure!

    Have an uneventful flight! If I were able, I’d be up there to meet you guys. There will be other opportunities. We’ll all keep an eye on the blogosphere for you.

    Yes, Dan, there will, be another CON next year. They are, apparently, a habit. By then you should be back to ship shape. And of course I will autograph your quiche, Jason, if you will autograph my maple.

    Well, I asked Jodi about that, and she decided that we shouldn’t bring any pets. Not even a pet whipping-boy.

    Anyway, he’s been MIA since he took down his blog. Been posting over at Juanita Berguson’s Kingdom Insight, and apparently starting up his own local ministry in real life.

    Have fun. We’re taking a break from con-life this year, we decided to boycott San Diego Comicon until they get out of San Diego completely, then we were going to hit Westercon but since it falls over the 4th of July weekend, we just couldn’t get our schedules to coincide. We might try to get to Loscon after Thanksgiving and we’re definitely hitting Galifrey next spring, but otherwise… we’re con-less.

    I’m kind of jealous of you two, actually. :)

    Best wishes to you and Jodi on your honeymoon. I will miss the daily posts, and look forward to hearing all about your travels once you get back.
    I wish my wife was a nerd/nerd enabler.
    You got lucky my friend….
