By this time next week I'll be in Rhode Island. Friday is flying up to NYC, Saturday will be commute and various Connecticut adventures. Then Providence will be my base of operations for the next 10 days. Much like my last visit, will be a mix of book hunting, historical foo, and a convention full of quirky folks, specifically NecronomiCon. This is the big event of the cultist calendar this year, and the thing I've been looking forward to all year.
But I'm just a little worried, it's been a really rough month mood wise.
Not going to go into details, trying to not dwell too much on what my
brain meats are throwing at me. But yeah, worried about a major crash
while out of town, like what happened during the Alaska Cruise a few
years ago. We'll see, this is different. Even if I do crash out, I can
hermit in my hotel with books and take out. I'm intentionally not bringing
a bunch of electronics, so I'll have some degree of disconnect. Plus,
Providence is well, Providence. Weather will be cooler than Texas,
fresh seafood, and a very nice bookstore to distance ratio. So while I
may have issues, I won't have volumes.
So a little over 125 hours til I'm winging my way north. I still have to
pack and plan stuff, deal with a work week, and the other mundanities of
life. Work especially will be challenging, but I just have to keep in
mind that Cthulhu has my back, and in short order I'll have time away.
Come on Friday!
