Just to let the folks from New York City and environs know:

I'll be in arriving on November 29 and leaving December 13. So meet ups, etc, can be arranged. Will be in Jersey City to welcome the arrival of my first niece.

(Anyone able to get tickets for a taping of The Daily Show?)

Am in my room at the Holiday Inn By The Bay, San Diego, showered and ready to head down to collect my badge. Those who follow me on Twitter will know the basics, but I'll talk in detail about the horror story that was my trip over later (but really, knowing me, is there any other kind?).

In the meantime, this is what I had for breakfast before I left Singapore. The cool thing is that I was reading the New York Times on my iPod Touch.

200 days until Bush is out of office.

Now that's an Independence Day to get behind.

Just to get this nagging question out of the way:

Any idea where I can get one of those pay-as-you-go SIM cards for my mobile phone when I touch down in San Diego?

Will be spending the gap week in and around the Bay Area before Worldcon with [ profile] cadhla and gang.
khaosworks: (D'oh!)
... have the hotel bookings for Worldcon opened yet?

ETA: I'm an idiot. I forgot I've already got a hotel room with some people for Denvention. Sorry. Cancel alert. I'm a dunce.

Gap week

Still trying to figure out what to do in the nine days or so between Comic-Con at the end of July and Denver Worldcon in the second week of August. I don't drive, so that cuts down on the options a bit.

I'm really open to suggestions: anyone want to offer me crash space somewhere in the week between, or suggest travelling options between the two states. Or anyone taking a road trip up to Worldcon that'd like the company? Or... anything, really, as long as it's sorta kinda in the space between California and Colorado?

Worst case scenario, I might wind up in Vegas or Salt Lake City or rent a cabin in Rocky Mountain National Park or something...

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Let's State The Really Obvious For A Change

By Mr. Terence Chua, who really should be reading about the Hatfield-McCoy feud right now

I'm sure it's nothing you've never heard before, and I'm probably going to look like a total goof for not thinking about this in detail earlier.

Some vaguely connected ramblings follow. )
