The last couple of weeks have been relatively uneventful, mainly involving extra work shifts covering co-workers on vacation and various social plans falling through for one reason or another. Which is fine since the former means more cash for my eventual departure and the latter means I had more time to recover from the lingering cold and cough that I had just caught when I last posted.
And now it is finally July! The month in which I gather all the paperwork to send off to the UKBA in hopes of getting my visa to join John in Southampton. It’s good to feel like I am at the beginning of the end of this process, assuming all goes well.
Being July it also means that I just missed Westercon, which was down in San Diego this year. I’ve never actually been to San Diego so it was a bit of a shame to have missed it, but as usual it’s been fun seeing people’s posts from the con.
I’m a bit more sad to realize I’m going to miss Worldcon. I’d gone back and forth on whether to try and make it but logistically it just makes no sense to try and squeeze it in. Still, I will be getting my votes in for the awards and site selection and sending in some art for the Fanzine Lounge, so I’ll be there in spirit.
