san francisco, golden gate

A meme and a trip to SF...

Collapse )

Headed to San Francisco today. I'm probably going to regret this, standing out on the Richmond platform waiting for the train at 8 PM tonight, but it's worth it just to actually meet jms in person. :)

(Why will I regret it? Here's this evening's forecast for the SF Bay Area: Tonight: Rain. Rain may be heavy at times. Lows in the lower 50s. South winds around 45 mph....with gusts to 60 mph.. But the suitcase full of books is covered both in and out with garbage bags, and I'll pack a few more just to be safe.)

Wondercon!

Went to Wondercon, and I'm now back in Sactown.

Good:

jms *squee*
jms' tendency towards self-depreciation. It actually helps.
Getting Phil Foglio to sign a copy of GG for me.
Wall-E is going to *rock*
Did I mention jms?
I now have a extra life in handy pocket size.
Also, I have a copy of the Chron from October 18, 1989.
I mentioned jms, right? I have a picture!
Found a copy of Transmet #2 in the half price bins, so started that replacement cycle.
Train rides. Train rides are cool.
Getting into Sactown half an hour early.
jms. What, I said that?

Could have been bad, but turned out good:
My headphones (and mp3 player) got turned into lost and found after I stupidly took them out of my bag and didn't put them back.
Weather held off. It was a little cold and windy on the platform at Richmond, but not horrible.

Annoyances:
Crowds. I'm not a big crowd person, and sometimes it got frustrating to try to get anywhere in the exhibition hall.
Expensive Moscone Center food and drink.

All in all, I had a blast.
