Anticipation, and a Grumpy Cat

 Actually, "pissed off" is probably more accurate.  That leg must hurt, because she's MAD.  Stalking around the house growling.  Before climing the stairs, she growled and hissed at them.  This is a really pissed off cat.  And if the other cat doesn't stop bouncing around wanting her to play, I think she's going to kick his ass all the way back to Canterbury.  But her appetite is fine and she purred for me this morning from her hidey-hole under the fabric shelves.

But in other news, I made the hotel reservations for I-Con (otherwise known as the freak show,) and I'm very excited.  We're in the same hotel as merimask, and I always enjoy spending time with her.  This year I'll actually take some pictures to post.  Last year I was a little too aghast, and frankly there weren't many who were picture-worthy.  I expect to hang out, gossip, watch the show go by, and decimate lobsters.  Oh - and I also anticipate not seeing much of my husband.  Now that we know what we're up against, we can plan a little better.

On the other hand, I'm even *more* unimpressed with this con's organization than I was last year.  I know it's student run, but that's no excuse for incompetence.  The website still says that directions from the ferry for CT/New England attendees are "coming soon."  As far as I can tell, it has said that for years.  It has definitely said that since February of 2007...  It still doesn't tell you where on the site the con is - the directions just dump you at the entrances to the campus - there isn't even an indication of which entrance (i.e. side of the campus) you need.  Luckily, this year we already know where we're going, so since the con is structured exclusively for people who already have this information and don't actually need it, we'll be okay.  I anticipate that the "con book" will again be a four color glossy photo album of the assorted guests with a photocopied list of activities that are not described anywhere and don't have directions on how to find them.

It's *really* badly run.  But I get to spend two whole days with friends that I only see at Pennsic otherwise, Bob gets to play Battletech for hours, and I get to have lobster for dinner.  That's worth putting up with some aggravation.

THAT part I'm really looking forward to.
