So, this is a thing: spur of the moment, I am going to Dragon*Con. 1st time in five years. Turns out a dear friend ended up on her own, with too much hotel room and a guest of badge, as an invited participant. The air fare is a bit of a pinch and the flight down will be a tad grueling but I won’t have to use any PTO. Will be worth it to see friends I haven’t seen in five years and enjoy one of the largest cons in the country.
