Brief Arisia '08 Report

gnomi and I had a fun time at Arisia this past weekend. As usual, our time was filled with being on panels; interestingly enough, the only two program items we tried to attend that weren't our own had too many people in the rooms for us to fit.

We had a good time at the Friday night dinner, and many people came by to wish Nomi a happy birthday at her open house on Saturday night. Sunday, as is our custom, we checked out early from the hotel so we could bring everything home and eat breakfast at Rubin's. Since we were back in Brookline anyway, we managed to make it to a birthday party that friends were throwing for their one-year-old twins. Then it was back to Arisia for our Sunday afternoon panels.

By the end, we were exhausted, Nomi had a headache, and we both had to work today. So we went home and stayed home (except that I took a brief trip out to get us dinner.)

A fuller report may be forthcoming.
