I've booked, finally, but the person I want to share with can't get it to load the pay options! Urggh

Ironically, it was me that thought I wouldn't get home in time!

Phew, I think it worked... now we just have a three week wait for the room lottery.

Am I the only one who finds this stressful?

I'm in! I wasn't able to navigate to a room but luckily Rentawtich got me covered.
Now I guess we need to wait for the room lottery.

Fiber optic cable cut this morning, no internet and no phones in the entire county, and still out by the time I had to leave work for a meeting across the Bay. Sold out by the time I got home, so no UK Con for me next year. :(

Get on the wait list, lots of people drop.

If all else fails, come anyway and hang out in the bar, and then scamper around Derbyshire with me after :)

Edit: I'm dead serious, I'd love to show you the awesome things I"ve found up there.

And as I've said before, Derbyshire isn't far[1] from Castle Harkin if you want to drop in.

1. And that's by UK standards. By US standards they're actually the same place.
