But the service was quick. Not terribly good, but quick. They brought me the next table's chicken satay by mistake, and after I got the right order two more servers came over with what they thought was my beef satay order. But at least they tried, and that counts for something.
The wifi here at the Crowne Plaza is not free, or maybe there's a pass code in the con materials that I didn' read. Either way, I'll send this later from home. I was hoping there would be a copy place in the plaza across the street, but no such luck, so I'll hit my local Kinko's on the way home.
Did get one project done, though - imported the cast and crew list into Eudora, so stuff won't be labled as spam. And wrote a filter to tag it with a J-H subject line.Can't use an ampersand because it's a reserved character in their filter language.
I'm wearing my 1993 Hitchhiker's Guide Menlo Players T-shirt. Several of the J&H cast were surprised it was a stage play.And even more surprised that the movie was taken almost word for word from it.
Sent email off to the BayCon party alias, asking for my room to be moved to the party floor. I'll provide soft drinks and chocolate, and acoustic filking is the kind of music I'll have on hand. I hope some of my singer friends will pop by. And it'll also be available for costumers who need some space before Masq. So many of my friends and family are costumers. I'm not much of a tailor myself, but my great-grandfather was - for the Royal house of England. It's how he was able to send his dozen or so children from Russia to England to New York. At least one of them stayed in London, 'cause I have cousins there. I think one is still in the textile biz.
Email from Seattle, my sister's son & his family will not be coming to visit. Stupid stupid stupid. The problem is they could not get a visa for their infant son. They have visas for my nephew, his wife and their eldest son. I know one of my nieces would gladly look after the baby for a month, but no.... it's all or nothing with them. As if the baby will get anything out of a trip to America. And I'm sure my parents would love to see 3 out of 4 of their grand and great-grandchildren rather than none.
Time to unplug and wander next door for the concerts.
