The Calm before the Shore before the Storm - Blather. Rants. Repeat.

The Calm before the Shore before the Storm
Today was rather quiet, after having court, clients or out-of-town commitments every other day this week. I even had enough quiet time late in the day to make some progress on the cabinet door sanding.

Next week is also relatively quiet. I'm beginning to work on a Business Related Project that's still under wraps but which will be ready to roll beginning in about a month.  My friend with the twins will also be returning to work next week, so I'm hoping to catch them for the first time.  And, no road trips are planned or necessary at this point until the morning a week from today, when I begin the biggest one of the year.

It's back to Baltimore for the third straight year for the Shore Leave convention, with the friends I will stay with and also attend with- plus author friends, comic-performer friends, and some guy from a Doctor Who spinoff who got skewered in absentia last year:

You can start writing the Cockeysville jokes in three, two, one.... go.


The past two years, I've gone to Shore Leave for just the first two days, heading back to NY on the Sunday morning following, but this time I'll be staying in the area the extra day, hoping to catch some college friends I last saw in Syracuse during the Reagan Administration.  Monday will be the dreaded drive up 95, probably getting to Long Island just long enough to file and/or check on some court stuff, and then to Flushing as the Mets (assuming they haven't been contracted or relocated to Winnipeg or something) return for a hopefully meaningful homestand against Colorado.  I'll then be home by nightfall on the 11th....

and, after a day or two to regroup, the rest will be over.

A deposition on the 14th. Court on the 17th. Three court appearances on the 18th. Another on the 20th.  And any number of things that can still get dropped on me between now and then which I don't even know about yet.  Plus the usual hangover of Time Away.

There will be a TARDIS at the convention hotel. I might need to stick it in the trunk for the last half of the month.

Have fun at Shore Leave! I can't wait until I can go to Cons again for fun rather than research... *wistful sigh*

(ok, they'd always be research, but I wouldn't be doing formal research).

If you ever decide to work SDCC into your- um, yeah, research! that's it!- let me know. Emily has always wanted to go and one of these years I will likely make that a pressie for her and anyone else who we can afford to send with her.

Actually, a friend who's a lecturer in the UK brought a bunch of students to SDCC for a fan studies course, so it's possible. Not sure when/if, though, for me, mostly because of how hard it is to get tix (they sell out in minutes).
