Today:

I started the morning with a call from the VCon publicity gal. The CBC was looking to do an interview with a fan who was involved with an excited about VCon. Which was all very well and good, and I would love to at any other time, but PLEASE! The day before the con? C'mon! Reporters must realize that the day before a major conference is a bad time to nail down one of the organizers for an interview.

Moved on to trying to finalize details of moving art boards from place of storage to con hotel. Confirmed truck reservation, spent several hours working on details and logistics for volunteers and times. Was still up in the air when I had to leave for meeting.

Went to Jazzy Girl's school for meeting with teacher and career councillor person. Jazzy was meeting with training chef from local well known Restaurant chain and may be getting in an apprenticeship training program with a $1000 scholarship. If she gets it, she would continue there for 4 years instead of paying to go to VCC, she could complete this work-pay-learn program and end up with her Red Seal as a chef. But I had to go to the meeting and say it was okay with me and all that good stuff. Like I would have a problem with this!

After following up on truck, trailer and volunteer sitch, ultimately decided that using small truck to tow small trailer in the rain with multiple trips was bad idea and booked cube van. Got volunteers to meet me, got truck, made sure it had gas, sent guys to go pick up boards.

Finished preparing GoH gift baskets.

Did laundry.

Tried to pack.

Loaded baskets in car, headed to GoH dinner (with only GoH in town!) Discovered that one of our programming people enjoys food in an almost pornographic fashion; informed her next time I needed to write any steamy scenes, I would call her and ask her to eat something and simply transcribe the comments and noises she made. Because seriously? That woman REALLY enjoys her food, complete with lascivious finger licking and porn sounds. Liek whoa.

Got call at dinner from frantic volunteer; truck full of art boards was stuck at Marine and Cambie, stalled. Told him to hold whilst I tried to get rental place, was closed; emerg number directed us to call GM who said they would tow it to the dealership. NOT to the con hotel where we needed it.

Freaked out a bit.

Called him back; truck was idyling in parking lot; he said he would try to get it out to Richmond.

Headed to hotel. Presented Martin Springett with his Basket. Reported to Ops to let em know I was onsite; went to hospitality to help w/ bag stuffing. Wrote up a last minute panel description for Pauline.

Truck arrived (thank god!) Exhausted volunteers needed rides home, left bag stuffing to play chauffer, came home.

Am tired.

I can haz sleep now? Kthnxbi.

*narrows eyes* You sure that woman wasn't a gender-switched McKay? *g*

Have fun, and try not to get too exhausted this weekend. {{hugs}}

It's quite possible.

I tried to tell her about McKay, but she has never seen SG1 or SGA. Sad. I really need to educate her.

However, she would really like to get some of the SGA folks to VCon next year. I think that would be truly and amazingly awesome if we could swing it. We can't offer them the big bucks that the other cons can though, so I am thinking it's not likely, but it can't hurt to ask them.
