Jack went over to pick up our registration packets yesterday and found that I wasn’t pre-registered.  Usually we register two years in advance, converting after site selection, but we didn’t go to Japan two years ago.  (At the door is considerably more expensive than pre-registering.)  I don’t vote for the Hugos, so I didn’t notice my lapse then.  Jack posted a query to the Anticipation LiveJournal community asking if anyone had a membership for sale.   Within two hours, a person offered to give me one, declining payment, and sent the necessary information to transfer the membership to me.   We downloaded the letter to a USB drive and took it to registration this morning.  Since I was already in the database due to other Worldcons, it took about two minutes to do the transfer.

I just realized that Denvention 3 is the first World Con held in our home state in twenty five years. The last one was Constellation, held in Baltimore in 1983, when Maryland was our home state.

Our local newspaper has an article about the Denver Worldcon next month: Sci-fi writers, fans gear up for Worldcon.

I’ve had more good news to add to being offered a job this week and meeting an old friend for the first time.

The young woman leasing Hap took him to a two-phase (dressage and cross country) and took sixth!  Considering she is still in the process of figuring out how to put Hap (who isn’t easy) on the bit their dressage scores weren’t great, but they evidently cleaned up on cross-country.  She has been working very hard with Hap, and I am glad to hear that they evidently had a blast on the cross-country course.  This was particularly admirable because she had never schooled Hap over these jumps.

I had a great lesson on Lily this morning with my trainer.  We have a dressage arena set up temporarily, so I worked on practice tests.  She seemed to enjoy the change from our regular routine.  Then I went out and found a comfortable swim suit, which was far more surprising then Lily’s excellence on the flat. 

And finally, in connection with the World Science Fiction Convention to be held in Denver next year, I found out something this afternoon which pleased me very much.  I don’t feel I should mention it yet, but I am so chuffed.

This Doctor Who Tardis 4-Way USB Hub is just too precious, even if you are not a die hard fan of the Doctor. (via Boing Boing)

COSine, the Colorado Springs Science Fiction Convention, starts today. The Convention Committee is hoping that bad weather will not attend.
