Brian and Anne

I've been very tired, and trying to rest

I feel like I've been fighting a cold since last week. It wouldn't be real good for me to be sick for ConFusion.

I've had a hard time working on the con. Jeff and I seem to have gotten into adversarial attitudes and first his email got decidedly unpleasant in tone and now he just hasn't answered the email I've sent him in the past two days.

this is the kind of thing that makes conrunning less fun. When I talk to Bill about it, he says "you know, you can stop." ...

I know I'm behind on doing some important things and I feel bad about it.
I'll probably get to most of them today, but that doesn't really make me feel any better.

The weekend was pretty good, and actually the tone of the concom meeting was more pleasant for me than a number of those in the past. Krysta and Susan Moerdyk both expressed interest in working on the program next year, and Seth expressed interst in Ops for next year - if we end up changing hotels. Tammy mentioned she'd like to take another look at the Ann Arbor Sheraton.... it sure would be nice to host the con out of Ann Arbor again.

It was nice having Laura here. Collapse )
