06:22 pm - Fourth Street: Fantasy Convention: Day 1
That's day one for me anyway. Officially the convention hasn't started yet, but I'm counting from the day I arrive in sunny, then rainy, then sunny, Minneapolis/Saint Paul and get to have conversations that have 4th Street nature. Today that meant meeting aedifica, anne /
txanne and jenett /jenett for lunch, where along with the catching up, was discussion of book culling, teaching/learning, knitting, ways in which one orients oneself in relation to a work of story and why, book valuing, and characteristics of various works. stfg joined us partway through lunch, and was welcomed along on our War of The Oaks tour (editions were compared), bits of plot were placed in their physical (though non-temporal) locations. Tea, phone tech and public transportation also made their way into conversation, alongside travel, attraction, massage, the upcoming Eagan Pride, and gendering. Then blinking fatigue sent some of us in search of rest, me not the least of us since I've now been up for about 28 hours straight. My apologies for my lack of clue in a few instances. And so good evening and good night. I'll see some of you at papersky 's play reading tomorrow.
Edited for name accuracy.
