This weekend, I headed up to Boston to attend Boskone, the annual convention put on by NESFA. I had an incredible time — learned new things from panels, met some online friends face-to-face for the first time, caught up with other friends, laughed like mad at the SF improv, had some excellent seafood, and do not appear to have contracted con crud.
I’m grateful to Elaine Isaak, who accepted me and my son as roommates, which meant we had somewhere to stay.
I’m grateful to Erin Underwood (programming) and all of NESFA for an excellent con.
I’m grateful to the panelists and others who gave so willingly of their time.
I’m grateful to Westin, which was very accommodating at extending reservations at the con rate for an extra night because of the storm.
I’m grateful to all the plow drivers and other highway workers who cleared the roads and highways so the rest of us can get where we need to go.
I’m grateful to the toll workers who have to be exposed to the cold all day — and the gas station attendants in New Jersey who stand out there and pump gas, which means I didn’t have to get out in the cold.
And I’m really grateful for being home safe and sound after a fantastic weekend.
What are you grateful for today?
