Show-off. Some of us are lucky just to have cilia.

Some of us are lucky to remember what that means.

I have updated the "who's going" list to include car and room estimates. Right now we're looking at two good cars of four people each (plus an extra guy we'll pick up in Sacramento), but because of the gender ratios we have three rooms. Adding more people to help make the rooms cheaper would require adding a car, which would raise the gas price and probably not be worth it. On the other hand, if someone has a minivan we could carry more people without paying for a ton of extra gas, so it would be cheaper overall.

I'm definitely going to be going but I'm already down here... are there any plans to meet up for dinner or something the night before?  I would definitely like to meet everyone.

That's a good idea. It's too bad World Fantasy doesn't use a voodoo board like WorldCon does.

If we want, I can find a reserve a place at some restaurant.  There are some good places in Japantown (San Jose) that would be able to handle a large group.  Alternatively, we could get KFC or something and go to a park and have a big picnic.

Gorsh! I wish I could go. This sounds like it will be a fun trip.

Anything relatively cheap and walking distance from the con hotel. Thursday night, ideally.

Everybody's going out and having fun,

The World Fantasy price goes up  by $25 after tonight. http://www.worldfantasy2009.org/?page_id=4

I'm not going this year, by the way.

Heidi and I are going.  I'll be staying at a friend's grandmother's house, and Heidi will be rooming with Julie Wright.

We have room for two more in my car.

I am thinking about going.  If I did go, I'd love to get a ride with you, Eric.

I could potentially stay with my parents (they live in Santa Clara) but might also consider staying with the girls if there was room.

I'll have to think about it some more, though.
