GaFilk is coming
The next major event on my social calendar is GaFilk, Jan. 6-8, and I'm getting excited even though they haven't announced the Super Secret Guest yet.  I will probably get out for an overnight or two before then, but I don't expect any major trips or events before then.  The holidays are low key for me normally, and will be more so this year.

So who's going to GaFilk?  Would anyone actually want to do anything with me, and even more oddly, plan it ahead of time?  I'll be driving down with my mom.  We normally leave Thursday afternoon or evening, spend Thursday night somewhere between Paducah and Nashville, get to the con Friday afternoon, stay over Sunday night, and drive all the way back Monday.  We could conceivably take a third passenger; if someone needs a ride from Urbana, speak up and we can see if it makes sense.

Hmmm... I clicked on the link, and it still showed the old page, showing Tanya Huff as last year's guest. But since you said they had updated it, I hit refresh, and then it told me that Karen Anderson is this year's SSG. Leaves me wondering how long it was really there and my browser was just not telling me.

On another page they said they were going to announce her today, so probably not long.

Admittedly, neither of those had been updated before yesterday. :)

It would be wonderful if I could go, but I can't. Over more than 30 years, I've had to choose between playing enough gigs to pay my bills, meaning I have few weekends off for cons, or *not* playing enough gigs, meaning the money isn't there for the trip. The last couple of years have been worse, since Louie and I bought the house. Please write at length and give me three-dimensional detail after you come back -- I really do want to know.

mariasmom and I are tentatively planning to go. It depends on whatever work commitments we may have (i.e. available PTO time for R, interviews for me, health for M) and available cash (or credit).

And if we do go, it's not likely we'll be doing a lot of conning, since we'll have a kid in tow.
