Ghost Gallivants to Glorious Galacon

A Supposedly Fun Thing I’m Totally Doing Again

(with apologies to David Foster Wallace)

Since Aragon (whose blog I’m in direct competition with) felt the need to introduce a disclaimer, I have to do much the same here. Everything I am about to write is completely 100% real. Especially the parts I made up.

Now(TM) with Travel Advice · 5:51pm July 25th

I'm safely ensconced in my hotel room in Ludwigsburg. Hope to meet at least some of you. To increase the odds of this happening, I offer the following advice:

Soon(TM) · 9:53pm July 24th

I will be flying to Galacon 2018 in under twelve hours and I expect I will be safely in Ludwigsburg within 24 hours. I will be hard to contact during this period, though I think I've acquired a method of fool-proof Internet access no matter where I am (aside from six miles straight up, of course).

Hope to see many of you soon!

Happy July 20th! · 5:29pm July 20th

...or July 21st, depending on your timezone.

49 years ago the first manned Moon landing was accomplished. It is one of my favorite moments in history (To learn about my favorite you may have to wait for December the 9th), and to celebrate I've re-edited Hoofprints to be a little less... ah, draft-y.

I hope you'll join me in raising a toast to these gentlemen.

The Rarest of Sights—Ghost in the Flesh · 5:10pm May 11th

POST EDITED WITH NEW DETAILS

Not quite an awesome blog post for my #100, but needs must.

Currently the odds of me attending Galacon 2018 (on the 28th and 29th of July, Ludwigsburg, a, I am reliably informed, gemütlich little town just north of Stuttgart) hover around 90%. 98%. The 10% 2% breaks down to:

How Ghost Disappeared And What Happened Afterwards · 6:57am May 10th

You may have noticed that I've sort of been... missing. Missing might be the word. Being even worse at answering chat messages, e-mails, phone calls, carrier pigeons, and the odd note stuck to my front door with a jeweled damascene dagger (you know who you are).

Let me explain.

...just in case.

I... have no words. No footnotes. No clever turn of phrase. Just... just this.

We are better than this. We must be.

Merriest of Christmases! · 2:45pm Dec 25th, 2017

To those who celebrate Christmas[1]: A very merry Christmas. To those who do not, a very merry Monday, a spiritually-fulfilling Saturnalia, and so on. :)

[1] Or, rather, those who Celebrate Christmas today. I know you are out there my Russian readers... Also Armenian and Serbian, I believe. None of those, as far as I know[2].
[2] Prove me wrong! :)
