Some people have noticed that my and Rosie's names are on the membership list for 4th Street this year. I bought those memberships the week before I heard second-hand that some dear friends were getting married that same weekend, in Michigan. That rumor has finally been solidly confirmed, and I am now looking to unload one adult and one kid's membership to 4th Street. If you are interested, let me know.
I'm sad not to be going, but it didn't seem destined to be - Brian has two conventions for work right before 4th street so he wasn't up for another one in a row, and I never really wanted to go without him. I'd like to introduce Rosie to my Minneapolis friends and extended family, but I'd rather introduce Brian at the same time.
Hopefully there will be another, better, opportunity to do that.
At this point the only big conventions/events on our radar are the Community High School Reunion June 30th in Michigan, Bubonicon in Albuquerque, August 24-26, 2012, possibly the Browncoat Ball, also in Albuquerque, September 14-16, Immortal Confusion, January 18-20, 2013, and possibly LoneStarCon3, assuming I come up with some part-time source of income next year. That last will also depend on whether or not other friends choose to attend, so do let me know if you're going.
