OLS has only 30 passes left!

T shirts are getting designed, we're working out staffing schedules, collecting bios and adds, working on the show guide, etc.

We have only 48 spaces left. We didn't sell out by May 1st like I expected. :(

Stop me before I kill again!

For the past week or so, I've been dreaming of killing my husband. The first time, I dreamt that he'd left the TV on again, and it was blaring through the neighborhood, and so I walked out into the office, took a large rotary drill, and impaled him with it. I can still vividly recall his guts moving clockwise around the drill bit.

The second time I dreamt I was furious at him. (Over what, I don't know.) So I took a large meat hook, and hooked him through his left eye, and up into his brain. I can recall the squish sound it made.

The third time, I dreamt a pack of rabid dogs were tearing him apart, and he kept screaming at me, "Throw the kibble!" But I didn't have any kibble, and I screamed back, "I don't have any kibble!" When it was all over, I looked in my pocket, and noticed there was kibble in my pockets all along. I laughed. "Hey look, I did have kibble!"

That was disturbing.

I am amazingly busy this week. I've had meetings everynight all week, with Wednesday being my birthday.

OLS is 50% full right now. I think we're going to sell out by May 1st. I would not be surprised at all if we did. Which would be a shame, because it would mean everyone gets the early price. :)

OLS is at 40% capacity now.

Got a package from my cousin the other day. In it were all my old "Enchanted World" books from my childhood. The full set, incredible illustrations, very neat indeed! They're almost twenty years old, but still in great shape.

I was elected to the Board of OCLUG yesterday.

OLS is 30% full.

OLS is about 20% full already. Apparently no one told these people we're in an economic slowdown.

We are running 4 tracks at OLS this year. We got so many great paper submissions, ajh decided to add another track. He's working on scheduling now. Things are progressing.

Registration for OLS is open!

We have reviewed the papers, and we've contacted most of the speakers who've been accepted. We still need to contact the ones who weren't accepted.

Expect the schedule to go up soon!

Andrew is making chainmail. Like, real, ringed, "hit me with a bastard sword, you bastard," chainmail.
