filomancer and the Small Talkative One and I finally made it to Readercon around 1:00 this morning or a bit after--this after a breakdown twenty minutes after we left, a long hot wait beside the highway for the tow truck, a trip back home, a taxi ride across town to obtain one of the last, boatlike rental cars available, and then a heroic drive by filomancer, in which she and I each managed to formulate coherent thoughts about our current novels.
I missed the panel I was scheduled to lead, but had called pointoforigin earlier in the afternoon, once it was clear we would not make it, and she was able to let programming know. I ran into one of the other panelists this morning, and she said it went well. Still need to find the person who took over as leader and thank him.
Did my panel today, then napped, and now shall eat. And hopefully, I will then be back in the swing of things.
