At the beach with boardgamers, like I do. It's been good for the most part: good games, decent company, sunshine, conditioned air. Feeling a bit more disconnected than usual this year. Partly this is because [personal profile] uilos isn't here, because "end of the school year" is a terrible time for an assistant instructor to try and take a week-long vacation. Other likely culprits include a sharp lack of time to introvert (the wifi downstairs is sketchy at best), and the fact that vacations feel less like vacations when they're a vacation from an unstructured life.

(The lack of structure is starting to seriously get to me, I think. When I get back I will have to a) restructure my life a bit more cleanly and, well, usefully, and b) start looking for work. These things are at least more or less complementary.)

For the first time in six years I'm not going to Wiscon. This is weird. I'm gonna miss the smart panels and conversations and the company, and downtown Madison. I am almost certainly going to stick my head in at Balticon, where I can at least get some of the smart conversations and good (if different) company.

Having writing thoughts, which is not at all the same as actually writing. Those ... may gel into a post later this week.

I will probably be balticonning (though a bit crankily, due to being utterly ignored by the program staff) though not sure how late I'll be there.

The other late-- although, maybe both, since we're setting up for a yard sale & I may stick around for a bunch of that. There's a panel I want to go to at 1, so I may arrive before you do.

Do you have dinner plans yet? If I have not-huge-crowd dinner plans then sticking around for them would be worthy.

I will look forward to maybe seeing you and giving you a hug at Balticon!

Yeah. That sounds about right.
