No Kitten, and Soon No Me

No kitten pics yet, I'm afraid, as the film wasn't ready. Oh, well, it'll give you guys something to look forward to when I get back, right? Heck, if I have to miss the kitty and his cuddly fuzzy cuteness for four days, you can miss it, too. Man, I keep lamenting about how I don't want to leave him and wondering if I can pack him in my suitcase... And then, usually, he jumps up on me with all his claws extended and bites at my hands while I'm trying to type or something, and the thought occurs that it might actually be nice to get a break from him for a while.

Where am I off to, then, you ask? Well, like the truly massive geek I am, I am off to attend a Farscape convention in Burbank, California. I'm looking forward to it, if only because it'll give me a chance to meet a lot of people who've been nothing more than names on a screen to me for many years. (No, I don't mean the actors; I mean other fans.)

There will likely be no blog updates while I'm away (although I always seem to say that and then find some time and net access somewhere and do it anyway, so who knows), but I'll doubtless force you to listen to my geektastic ravings when I get back.

In the meantime, since it seems to have become something of a tradition to list the books I'm taking with me when I travel, this weekend's list is:

Vanishing Point by Stephen Cole (Unless I finish it first; I've only got about 50 pages left).
Do You Speak American? by Robert MacNeil and William Cran
The Penultimate Peril by Lemony Snicket
The Mote in God's Eye by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle

Hey, if I get stuck in Las Vegas airport, I want to be prepared! Because slot machines do not entertain me at all.
