Things that make me happy on a Friday....

Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith on the same stage. Oh, yeah......

Working on Bouchercon also makes me happy. When I talk to people about it, the comment I often hear is "wow, that must be a lot of work". Well, yeah, it is. But it's also a boat load of fun. There's the logistical stuff, like program books and schedules, which appeals to the organizer in me - give me a spreadsheet and I can amuse myself for hours.

Plus, there's the planning and the programming, which allows me to talk to great people, who have fabulous ideas about how to make Bouchercon special.

For instance, my friends at MWA and Sisters in Crime are managing the Hospitality Suite. Simon Wood and Julie Goodson Lawes and the gang are planning like mad, and from what they've told me, it's going to be really special.

Then there's the Wolfe Pack. Not this one.....

....this one...

They're hosting a dinner during Bouchercon that I think will be way cool. Jane Cleland will have all the details, and we're posting info on our Program page as well.

And I continue to be over-the-top excited about our Saturday night Disco Party and Dance-O-Rama, partly because it gives me an excuse to post videos like this one....

...and this one....

A little Weekend Update

  • Over 50% of our hotel rooms have been sold, so now would be a good time to make your reservations.
  • Some of you have asked about updates to the attendees page. With a little luck (which means yours truly needs to figure out FTP. Spreadsheets I'm good at - the interwebs, not so much ;-) we'll have updates on the site this weekend.
  • Anthony nominations ballots have gone out - check your email, and VOTE!

And finally, I hope you have a fabulous weekend.
