Yesterday was a long day…

Yesterday was a long day of errands and work. My parents are arriving today for a four-day visit; I'm actually not quite sure what we'll do with them today. Kev's picking them up at the airport around 1, and I get home from teaching at 2:30; hopefully he'll survive the time alone with them. :-) We have nothing else scheduled for the day, so perhaps we'll just relax around the house. We'll see.

In other news, congratulations to Tim and Ben and John S. on their various Hugo nominations! It's so nice to see friends doing well. :-) I won't be voting in WorldCon this year -- though if it weren't for baby, I would have seriously thought about attending, because tax-deductible trip to Japan -- that's tempting. Ah well -- maybe it'll come around again in a decade or so. Should be interesting; I wonder if WorldCon has ever been held somewhere where English wasn't the dominant language?

Right now, super-groggy -- woke up at 3:31 for some unknown reason. Didn't get out of bed until 4, but still. So far, all I've managed is to have breakfast, but I'm going to try to get at least a bit of work done, since I'm up anyway. Also try not to fall back asleep on the couch, or at least not without setting an alarm, because I do have to go to work today...

  1. The Long List of Worldcons indicates:

    1970: Heidelberg

    1990: The Hague

    All the other non-US WorldCons have been in the UK, Australia, or Canada. So it looks like (so far) we go to non-English-speaking countries once every 20 years or so.
