Off to WotF

August 22, 2010

Tomorrow is travel day.  I have to leave for the airport around 6AM.  Blech.  Assuming I can sleep at all, that is.  Bags are packed, though I’m not sure what I’m forgetting.  I have clothes, shoes, laptop, notepad, pens, toiletries, Firefly videos (can’t find disc 3).  I think I’ll bring my iPod for the flight, maybe a book or two. Against my better judgment, I’ve left the StarCraft 2 disc in the computer for the trip.  I’ll only use it if tempted by someone with a similar lack of self control.

I’ve decided against bringing books to get signed by authors in attendance.  I don’t have many titles from those authors, honestly, and I don’t want to offend anyone by getting author A to sign a book while not having a book for author B to sign (despite maybe being a bigger author or more involved in WotF).  It was suggested (though by no means promised) that this year’s winners might get a copy of the 25th Anniversary coffee table book which would serve as the perfect autograph book.  If we don’t get one as a gift (no one owes it to me, but it would be a lovely gesture, wouldn’t it?), I may well purchase one for that purpose.

So what else could I need?  Snacks?  I’ll probably bring a few.  Reference books?  Honestly, I can’t imagine what I’d need to look up that I couldn’t Google.  Most advice I might need would take too long to find for it to be truly worth the effort.  What else?  I don’t see a massive Nerf war in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel going over well, so I’ll leave my arsenal at home.  Itinerary is in my computer bag.  I guess I could bring a bunch of beverages for the room (checked luggage, not carry-on), but I don’t want the charge for an extra-heavy bag.  Meh…I guess I’m ready enough.

I’ll post tomorrow, once I’m settled.  It may be bedtime by then.  I’ll try to keep a general commentary going about stuff.

If you want to watch the live stream of the awards ceremony, you can find a link to it at the WotF homepage.  It’s Saturday night, not sure what time.  I think I’m supposed to have some sort of Halle Berry style speech prepared.  Maybe I should work on that since I don’t ad lib well.  If you don’t want to watch it all, I’m sure it’ll hit WotF’s YouTube channel so you can skip around looking for me in my very large tux.

Time now for a little more family time before bedtime and bon voyage.  Got to get my fix while I can.

    Congrats, Scott! You did great! I have to say, you cut a dashing figure in a tux. See you at the signing tomorrow!
