World Fantasy Convention update

Taking a quick break to update here before hitting the con again.

got up before the girls in our room
did my situps and pushups
had a bite from a granola bar
ran downstairs to develop a short story with Alan M. Clark
visited the art show
saw lotsa people
bought Kij some more ibuprofen
back to room to wake Kij up for lunch
lunch with Anne Groell (Kij's Bantam editor) and her hubby
super lunch, great conversation, much laughing
watch Kij do a panel on "books that influenced us"
wrote a couple of poems
made posters for Kij's reading
printed said posters (this is an epic deal...)
posted 'em
went to the small-press publishers party
chatted up many fine folks
back to room to check on Kij
she's doing much better
typed in new poems
chatted with a friend

Now we're off to see people, hear Kij read, attend parties, and all that good stuff.

Tomorrow is the awards banquet as a late lunch.
