Woo-hoo! Happy days are here again!

Earlier this year, I was Science GoH at Convergence in Minneapolis. I had a fantastic time, they treated me great, and I have been scheming ever since, trying to find a way that I could go back next year, on my own nickel. Then yesterday, I found out that my favorite author, Lois McMaster Bujold (if you haven’t read her yet—DO SO! IMMEDIATELY!) will be GoH at next year’s Convergence. That settled it—I didn’t know how I would do it, but I was going, no question. I figured I’d need on the order of $600 to do it. I had almost that much in my “Mad Money” stash, but that would leave me with almost nothing in that fund for about the next year. Not a pleasant prospect.

Then, last night, one of the women who are kind enough to carry my corsets to various craft and historical faires to sell called and said that they had sold some of my corsets, and, you guessed it, my share came to almost exactly $600. I was stoked!

Sometimes, life is good!
