Got to the hotel, got checked in, picked up a box with stuff for the costume I didn't finish ($407, ouch!), unpacked. Called Mary Sue, the lady the folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live had set up for the second date, and made plans. Went down to the lobby and talked with howardtayler, his wife sandratayler, cathyr19355, and her husband Eric. A very interesting conversation. I showed Sandra my AP-130 plasgun; she seemed impressed.
Finally headed for Mary Sue's place. Got there a little later than I'd planned, but it worked out. We talked for a while. I found out that her principal had scuttled her (and other teachers') plans to have me come talk to the students at her school, on the premise that I've never done anything of the sort before, and she didn't want to run any risks. I guess I can understand that, though I'm disappointed. We had a nice dinner at a local restaurant, and talked more. And more. I finally took her home, went back to the hotel, and collapsed.
I'm going to have lunch with some techies from her school district and go look around the new high school where she teaches, and then dive headfirst into the con today.
