My mother worked in a travel agency when I was little. She got the same freebies the agents did. I do not remember most of Europe.
Most of the states and provinces were on my road trip with Tillie, Brent and Steel. I could go into further detail. But I won't.

People are dumb

Mali announces that TolCon will have a club table and we need help. The response from the volunteers list is: "What is Rustycon?"
I give them the link to Rustycon page.
Volunteers list says, "Okay, but where is it?"
I go to rustycon page and look at the big bulletin on the front page where they announce the location. "It is at the SeaTac Radisson," say I.
The volunteers list says: "I live in SeaTac and I still can't find it!"
I go to mapquest enter "Radisson" city of SeaTac. I tell people on the list what the cross streets are (highway 99 and 170th. That it is on the west side.

If this is not enough information, I REALLY don't want their help. I can just imagine the conversations.

Me: We are trying to encourage people to register. Give everyone who asks this reg form.
Them: But how will they fill it out?
Me: With these pens.
Them: How do they work?

It was always one of my dreams when I started thinking about sewing for money that I would make Oscar party dresses.
Guess what the lovely twins want me to make them?

Excuse me while I go roll around in silk.

How come I can't just say "Hi! I'm a big spaz! But your client really wants to come to TolCon anyway!"

I guess I should get a good pair of boots before next winter. My comfort shoes just don't work too well in the snow.

Happy New Year!

And a very random one it is.

Thank you to whoever helped clean up after the party.
However, in the future, please remember that glass bottles do not go in the recycling bin in the kitchen. They go in the crates located in the carport (or if we don't feel like taking them outside, on the kitchen counter.)
The recycling men prefer this, as then they don't get shards of glass mixed in with the paper and cans.

This morning I got to play a rousing game of find the bottles, interspersed with the annual emptying of half drunk champagne bottles.
Champagne is bubbly when it goes down the drain.

Also, TolCon received membership forms from the Despot family today. I think I'm scared.
