Things are really looking up for Gaylaxicon. A few months ago we were afraid that we would be way low. Now we thing we might be a bit high. We are at about 240 registrations right now. The program book is nearly done, and I put together a one sheet pocket guide too. Tomorrow is out last committee meeting before the con, so I'll have hard copies of these for editing. Then we go to print on Saturday.
I published the program schedule online today. Click here to see it. This is a web page, not a PDF.
In non-Gaylaxicon news, today is my friend Les's birthday. His... hmm, not boyfriend, not roommate, ah... his Angel sent out a bunch of emails and text messages this afternoon to get people to come and surprise Les for his birthday dinner. Sadly I didn't have time to stay for dinner, but I did meet them at the restaurant, and gave Les a big happy birthday hug and kiss. He's a really nice guy who deserves a happy birthday.
We had sad news a work on Monday. One of our colleague's in Europe passed away suddenly over the weekend. He collapsed and died. My coworker Ray has been on conference calls with this guy every week for months working on a project. Ray's been a bit down since. This hasn't been a good year for Ray.
I'm fighting off a cold. I'm determined to not be sick at the convention. Which probably means I should wrap this up and go to bed. Good night.
