Not going to alt.polycon

[also posted to alt.poly]

Thanks to everyone who followed up to my request for attention and/or sent good wishes for my various health and mood issues in other ways.

On top of everything else, I injured my leg (the one that wasn't already in pain from sciatica) last week, and it's still giving me a lot of trouble, especially in the early morning, which means I'm chronically short on sleep.

So because of all that, I've decided not to go to alt.polycon.

I'll miss y'all. But feel free to be as noisy and raucous as you want, since I won't be around to grump at you for it.

And I'll expect a full report on the mountains of subtext afterward. :-)

Subtext? No one's ever shown me any subtext, therefore I dismiss the existence of it. :-)

I hope your leg and grumpiness improve. I'll be sure to be a little extra raucous on your behalf.

I know I can count on you to be raucous. :-)

Aw gee, this means I won't be able to climb Mt Everest, either! Shall I return your two cents?

That's excellent! I wish all concerned a healthy and easy birth/adoption experience. And I will want to see baby pictures!

I'm not going either. I really wanted to so I could meet some of the folks from ap, but we still haven't sold our house in CA yet (know anybody who wants a 4BR house in the east bay?) and we just can't afford for me to go to both it and worldcon. And worldcon's been my gang longer.

I know people who want a 4br house in the east bay, but I don't know people who want one who can pay for it.

Back when I still thought I was going to alt.polycon, I made a similar decision about worldcon - would have liked to go, but couldn't afford to be away for that long.

So - more folks for the distributed party!

*hugs* Hey clue me in on some of the subtext too, huh? Non consentual pain is no fun!

I'll clue you in on any subtext you really wanna know about.

Yeah. I keep safewording and it doesn't do any good... (except when the safeword is "Vicodin")

There's subtext out there I don't wanna know about? Sounds a little foreboding. :-)

lol!

Not foreboding, since most of it is reactions to stuff that has already happened. Just probably not worth wasting time on.

Well, all these people not going--with you topping the bill--make me feel better about having to stay home due to money issues.

i've been not going since they announced the dates for it. can i come to the distributed party too, or do you have to have contemplated going and later rejected the possibility?

feel better soon!

Ouch! I've said before, it seems like people are having leg/knee/foot problems all over the place this summer. Best wishes for speedy improvement, and I hope you have a fun weekend anyway and get to hear lots of good gossip and so on.
