Yesterday, robot_grrl worked from 4 to noon. While she was working, Derrick and I got ready for our trip to Loscon. A big part was getting the dog to the kennel for boarding, and upping the cat's food.Leave a comment
After Tara got home, we had some leftovers for lunch and got on the road about 1:30. The trip was as smooth as could be expected, given LA traffic.
After arriving at the hotel, we had some trouble finding parking due to poor signage. Once inside the hotel, we discovered that half of the main elevators were out, for several months. This slowed us up a bit, so we were late for the one panel we went to: budget costuming.
After the panel, we met up with fr_john and drove to Denny's for dinner. Derrick ended up going to bed, while Tara watched an anime movie and I hit up some parties.
This morning, Tara made a couple of panels then ended up helping out in children's programming. I wandered, and sat at the Chibid table so Dave & Helen could get lunch.
So far, this has been a good con. We've had nice visits with fannish friends, both from the Midwest and California.
