Brief Update: Arisia and Other Things

This past weekend, gnomi and I attended the Arisia science fiction convention. We celebrated her upcoming birthday, which is tomorrow, with a party Saturday night in our hotel room that went very nicely. All our guests had a good time.

There was other happiness this weekend. On Friday, January 13, my younger brother and his wife welcomed a baby boy into the world. This is the first male-born Burstein in 34 years, and we're all delighted.

And for now, I'm working today but also feeling sleepy. I have a busy week ahead, so I'm not sure when I'll catch up on sleep; probably this weekend.
