And so it begins... WRITERCON!

My computer is telling me it's just after 11pm. But locally, it's just after 1am. Yeah. My body is so not convinced of that fact...

I arrived in Minneapolis this evening, and heaved a grateful sigh of relief over the cooler weather. *SO* nice after the heat wave in Vancouver. I listened to the podfic "And Be One Traveller" on the way, snickering at all the funny parts, which garnered me a few amusing glances; I've read the story a number of times - and the dialogue is so totally *classic* Rodney McKay - that I was mouthing the words along with the speaker (just like when you've watched a movie 10 times) and then cracking up. Yeah. That got me a few strange looks.

I took the bus to the Vancouver airport and I took transit to the Radisson - honestly, soundingsea put up such fantastic instructions, complete with a pictorial, it wasn't hard to figure it out.

I did walk the last to blocks to the hotel - no real hardship, but my bags were *heavy* - and who do I see coming toward me as I'm walking up to the door? soundingsea, rusty_halo and scarlettgirl! Talk about fortuitous timing!

After hugs and greetings, rusty_halo and scarlettgirl continued on to Target and Sea and I went shopping. Well, first we stopped and said hi to harmonyfb who had just walked into the hotel, because hey! HARM!! Then we went shopping. And a very organized shopping trip we had, with her meticulously recording everything and matching up against the list of what she had and what I had asked for - and we were not only in budget but done in about 2 hours. Sea is a most excellent companion to shop with and helped to keep me focused. Because I was *totally* in McKay headspace, muttering about prices and comparisons and probably would have been hemming and hawing for another hour. *grin* I think I'll keep her.

WE CAN HAZ A CON!!!

Also, I brought my guitar, so we can has filk too. Yay!
