For those who missed it... [Feb. 24th, 2010|09:43 pm]

[mood |tiredtired]

I shall be at Continuum 6: Future Tense this weekend. Sharon and Lex will not, because of Sharon's work.

This has worked out to be a good thing since she seriously sprained her ankle last Friday and likely wouldn't do well at the con. As it is she will be having to cope with a very active toddler, while on crutches, and pregnant, while I'm away. So any of you in Canberra with experience looking after children could earn her eternal gratitude if you come over for a few hours and change one of Lex's nappies. Or you could just take him for a bit of a walk and give her a break.

I have to be in Melbourne for at least the first night, as I'm bringing down the awards. Naturally I'll see how she's doing and if the drive down and Friday night's program doesn't kill me, I may be leaving the con Sat. If she's doing well, I'll leave Sun night or Mon morning.

I will not be at Swancon this year. Neither will Lex. But Sharon will! It will be her first true holiday since Lex was born, since all the others have basically returned her to work a complete wreck. I will be staying home over Easter and teaching Lex Maori swear words.

The four of us will be at Aussiecon 4.

Oh, and today is Sharon's birthday, gifts of large sums of money will be gratefully accepted. Or hugs.

I don't want to put any pressure on you! But you have my number, and I am free for small windows over the weekend if you want to hang. I can (of course) come to you. :o)

Not sure if you like Chinese food, but if you're still around on Saturday I'm organising a small outing to the Hutong Dumpling Bar for lunch. They do stuff other than dumplings as well.
I'll save you a seat if you want to join us.

i will be at the Con too, and happen to be last-minute panel sitting too: Saturday-"The Post-Apocalyptic Housewife’s Domestic" and "Future Proofing Melbourne 2099" ... and will also be assisting with DJing the Ball.

see you there!

I hope Sharon had a good birthday (or as good as you can have with a sore ankle). Considering the time difference I will not send a more direct hug as she needs her sleep.

Well let me know if Sharon needs anything while she's in this neck of the woods, it's the least I can do ;)

If there is a catching up oportunity, please inform of such in here, or by text.
I think last time you were in Perth, Kerry and I missed a Pancakes because it wasn't blogged and you must have told Swancon people.
I refuse to go to Con's purely on the basis of being a means to keep up with people.

Happy birthday Sharon!!
Awww, and I was looking forward to seeing how big Lex has gotten since we last saw him, but do understand the need for a break.
Lots of love,

Tori and Perky

If anyone can bring them down it's you, buddy.
