Weekend On the Rocks

Due to my failing to realise some issues of timing, my enthusiasm for the RHPS convention being held in West Virginia this coming weekend has dropped from 90% to about 5%, and it's looking rather unlikely that I'll actually go. This will be moderately embarassing, especially in light of my having ducked out on connected things in the past with some of the same people, but I think I would be missing out on at least two things that are much more important if I went. I'll probably have to decide for sure tomorrow so people can adjust their plans, and I should make good on the financial commitments I've made anyhow.

Not particularly related, I finished reading "Mistress of Spices", by Chitra Divakaruni today, and it was quite good. I'm not sure if it's one of the kind of books one ever rereads, but it was definitely worth reading once.

The G thing didn't work out - I think I can probably find a better match of some details I care about if I look harder. I should probably prod the people at H I was talking with earlier and see if that door could be reopened... probably.
