We are back from Dragoncon, where we had a blast (as well as doing more sleeping and reading in our hotel room than is really kosher for being at a 'con, but considering this was also our childfree vacation for the year, I think we were entitled!). I missed the boy's affection and enthusiasm for everything, but it was nice not to have the responsibility to care for him and feed him and get up every morning when he does for a few days. He stayed with my parents, and it seemed like he had a blast, too. My mom and [livejournal.com profile] beckyboo83 took him to the Austin Zoo on Friday, Saturday evening he got to visit my Aunt Naomi (who is recovering from breaking her leg in multiple places) and Uncle Larry, and Sunday he got to play with my brother and his girlfriend.

The highlight of Dragoncon for me, I think, was Ayria's concert in the wee hours of Monday morning. She was scheduled to be on at 1:30, but it ended up being more like 2:30 by the time they got started. But wow! did we in the audience have energy, and it was really cool to see how much fun SHE was having. A lot of times when musicians talk to the audience I find myself wondering about their sincerity, but not Ayria on Monday morning. She was having a BLAST, there was no doubt about it. :)

I hope to post pictures at some point, but since my desktop is dead I need to see if I have enough hard drive space to load them to the laptop instead, and also if the laptop is capable of running the Gimp photo editing software I use. So don't hold your breath. :)

Today was Corwin's first day of preschool. I think it went well, as far as I could tell. Corwin didn't seem even the slightest bit upset about being dropped off (I had to ASK for a hug before I left, and one of the other moms commented that she hoped her daughter would eventually be that good about it). He came home with a pair of wet underwear in his backpack, but I suspect that may have been his teachers' fault. His daily writeup indicated that he went potty at 10:30 and 1:30, and three hours is WAY too long for him to go between potty trips. Not to mention he usually goes immediately after lunch, and that timing should have had a potty trip around 12:15 or so. I'll see what happens on Tuesday and if it's the same thing I'll write the teachers a note. Or just try to talk to them about it when I drop him off on Tuesday if things aren't too busy.

No nap this afternoon, in spite of preschool. *sigh*

Charisma Carpenter is on the guest list for Dragoncon this year!

I was just checking out the Dragoncon site and saw this:

Andy Hallett (August 4, 1975 – March 29, 2009)
Dragon*Con would like to offer our deepest sympathy to the family, friends, and fans of Andy Hallett. Hallett, who starred as Lorne on the TV series Angel, died of heart failure at age 33. The fan favorite died at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles after a five-year battle with heart disease. His father Dave Hallett was by his side. A Massachusetts native, Hallett appeared in more than 70 episodes of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off series between 2000 and 2004. He had spent his post-Angel years working on his music career, playing shows around the country. Andy will truly be missed.


I wonder how this passed under my radar back when it happened. :( This makes me sad. RIP.

I just got done attending a DragonCon panel called "Still Bleeding Into the Mainstream" that was ostensibly to discuss the ways that Goths are portrayed in mainstream culture. However, the last half of the panel devolved into a discussion of how Goths are perceived and treated in high school these days. Listening to what some of the high school kids there had to say made me realize just how fortunate I was in the high school that I attended.

I think these thoughts are vaguely organized now. )

And as a final, somewhat irrelevant, note, Rogue (of the Cruxshadows) was on the panel and I was impressed by the thoughtfulness of what he had to say. Again -- didn't fit with my preconceptions of what a "rock star" is like. I'd love to hang out with him sometime and just talk about stuff like this -- unfortunately, I doubt that's likely to ever happen. ;)

I'm at work today. I have a headache this afternoon, and no Tylenol on me. *sigh* No drugs of any kind, actually, other than some Sudafed, which isn't helpful.

Andrew and I are going to DragonCon over Labor Day weekend this year. We have our memberships and our hotel room booked already. Corwin will be staying with one or both sets of his grandparents (details still need to be worked out as to whether he'll be staying in Houston or Austin, and if Houston, where), and we still need to make our flight arrangements (these are dependent on whether we're flying out of Houston or Austin). But we're going! :) Yay for an adult vacation!
cifarelli: (Ember)
This part is probably only exciting if you're also a parent, or you're one of Corwin's relatives. )

Sunday (yesterday) wasn't terribly exciting. Nothing really to report. We hung around the house, and cleaned up a little.

This afternoon we had the usual gang (minus [livejournal.com profile] staticeel and plus [livejournal.com profile] kaerukami's wife Jamie) over for board games and pizza. Corwin actually took a half-hour nap around 4:30, which I found impressive. We put him in bed around 1:30 also, and he stayed there for about an hour, but it was storming at the time and I'm not sure he really slept -- there were stretches when he was quiet, but he was also making noise and fussing periodically, so no way to tell if he was asleep or just laying quietly during those times. It was nice to see folks, and I had fun with the games. :)

I don't know what it is with our pizza delivery places around here, though. We have pretty much quit ordering from Sarpino's, in spite of their pizza being excellent, because there is always some problem with our order -- either they can't find our house in spite of having the directions in their computer, they screw up the credit card payment (once they denied all my cards when the problem was really that their card machine wasn't working, and once they doubled the tip), or they deliver us a pizza with green peppers on it instead of beef (and this happened more than once!). Pizza Hut is the fall-back option, and we had gotten decent service from them up until recently. A few weeks back when my cousins + gf were visiting we ordered from them and it took them over an hour to deliver. Tonight, it took them an hour to deliver (when we'd been quoted a 35 minute delivery time) and got two of the four pizzas we ordered wrong. Basically, we got two each of two of the pizzas we ordered, and none of the other two. It's very frustrating.

Tomorrow I need to call the university and figure out when I need to go in to get my keys, pay for parking, and do any other administrivia that's required for starting work in theory this coming weekend. This was probably my last free weekend for a while. My current plan is to stick it out through this semester and see how it goes; if Andrew and I hate it, I'll consider resigning again at that point; if it turns out to be not a big deal, then I'll probably keep at it indefinitely.

I'm off to take a shower now. Might hop on WoW after that.

I'm sad that we missed DragonCon this weekend. :(

Rough week

Jan. 9th, 2007 12:08 pm

Sunday was much better than Saturday. I made significant progress on the closet re-organization, though I still have a fair bit to go. My back and round ligaments started complaining at me before I was finished, and I thought it best to stop and not push too hard.

Unfortunately, Sunday night was not so good, as I was awake nearly all night due to what I assume was acid reflux discomfort. It wasn't painful, just uncomfortable, but it was enough so that it kept me from falling asleep. Not a fun way to pass the night. (I've never had this before, so I'm still assuming that's what it was as opposed to KNOWING, and we didnt have any antacids on hand to take since neither of us is prone to such.) I thought about just getting up and reading or something several times, but the thought that if I got up then I DEFINITELY wasn't going to fall asleep kept me abed. I ended up calling in sick to work yesterday, because I felt like I'd gotten 2-3 hours of sleep max....basically a lot like I used to feel during final exams week in college. I did some research online, and the basic suggestions were not to eat within about 3 hours of bedtime, and to prop up the head of the bed a few inches. We're not sure about this propping up the head of the bed thing -- seems to me it would lead to structural unsoundness of the bedframe after some period of time -- but I was good and didn't snack after dinner last night, and slept much better as a result.

So I'm working today, and planning to stay an hour or two late tonight as well. Andrew and I want to go the The Cruxshadows' show at HaVoK at Numbers on Thursday night, so we're trying to bank a few hours so we can go in to work late on Friday. Unfortunately, I have a 10:00 desk shift Friday morning, so I have to be in by then, which is only gonna let me sleep an hour or so later than usual. But I'm even more inclined to try to make this show since The Cruxshadows have announced that Rachel is leaving the band later this year (DragonCon 2007, which we aren't going to be able to make due to having a very young son, will be her last live performance), and she's one of the ones I really like seeing. I don't really know what I'm going to wear for the show, though, as none of the usual things I'd wear fit at the moment. I'll probably end up just throwing together something in black, and telling myself that I'm NOT going to be seen, I'm just going to hear a band I really like. I probably won't be able to do much in the way of dancing either...but oh well. Such is life. ;)

I tried again to order pants from The Gap yesterday, and they still don't have what I want in my size. At least they have removed the jeans I wanted from the listing of things available in my size, so they're not taunting me by letting me order them and then removing them from my shopping cart when I try to check out. But in the meantime, I still have no real prospect of getting any pants that fit better. :(

We are back from DragonCon; have been since Monday evening actually. Yesterday was spent unpacking, doing laundry, grocery shopping, and other such mundane things that we weren't around to do on the weekend. Oh, and sleeping. Glorious sleeping. After being on an f'ed up schedule at the con (got to bed at 5:30 a.m. one night, and 4:00 a.m. the next), we both slept 10 hours straight through, like the dead (even pregnant me didn't wake up to go to the bathroom at all), Monday night. And even after 10 hours, I wasn't ready to really wake up, and I stayed in bed dozing off and on for another couple hours after that.

I had a really good weekend, with the exception of Friday morning, which I'll mention in a bit. I slept reasonably well, and didn't have any problems with lack of energy except for Monday, when it was understandable because I hadn't slept nearly enough for the previous two nights running. I felt pretty much like my old self. Yay! :)

Our flight on Thursday was delayed by about an hour, which caused us to arrive at the Con hotels around 11:30 p.m., too late to do Thursday evening registration. So we checked into our room on the 23rd floor of the International Tower in the Hyatt [this turned out to be a very good location, as the elevators for the tower didn't suffer from the same crowd control problems (i.e. really long waits) as the elevators for the main part of the hotel, and being on the 23rd (top) floor, we could always get an empty elevator going down], and then headed downstairs to hang out with some friends in the lobby for a while until we crashed and went to bed.

Friday morning scare )

Now I should get back to work-work, and have some lunch soon too, so I'll write more about D*Con later. We also have a few piccies to post, but that won't be 'til this evening or later this week.
cifarelli: (Ember)
I hope I'm not jinxing anything by posting this, but I think my severe lack of energy days may be past! I was still dragging quite a bit on Sunday, but since Monday I've been feeling like my old self. It's almost like someone flipped a switch somewhere. I didn't get to bed 'til 11:00 last night, and while I'm a bit tired today, it's more the "7 hours of sleep isn't quite enough" tired than the "OMG how can I BE this tired when I slept for 10 or 11 hours last night?" kinda tired. And yeah, I've been up 'til 10 or later every night this week so far, and went to bed then because I knew I needed to rather than because I was crashing.

So now I am looking forward to DragonCon even more, because I think I might actually be able to stay awake for some of the late night events, like the Cruxshadows at 1:00 a.m. Saturday night. I'll still probably crash earlier than I wish to and miss some good parties as a result, but that at least is normal for me (I've never managed to be a true night owl). At least I hopefully won't be automatically turning off at 10 p.m. no matter how much sleep I got the night before. :)

Mmm...DragonCon. I want it to be tomorrow afternoon already, so we can be on our way to getting there. I'm really looking forward to several days of just having fun with Andrew and spending time with both some of our friends from here and other folks from Atlanta and elsewhere that we don't get to see very often. It'll be nice to get away from work and our normal responsibilities for a while too.
cifarelli: (Ember)
Friday night after work we went over to [livejournal.com profile] kashent's place for movie night with Dan & Erin, [livejournal.com profile] tdanner, and his wife Carrie. We got to introduce Neel to the zaniness that is Labyrinth as it turned out he'd never seen it before. That has now been remedied :) Erin was evil and taunted me horribly by bringing a bottle of Blackthorn hard cider (this being cider that comes in a wine-type bottle, rather than in a six-pack -- I'd never seen it before). I had a sip of Andrew's, determined that it was quite good, and then successfully resisted the urge to have a glass of my own. I don't drink much or very often generally, but I do like my alcohol once in a while. Giving it up completely for 9 months is somewhat frustrating, especially as there's no conclusive evidence that small amounts occasionally are unsafe. Heck, my doctor said I could have an occasional glass of something once in a while, but I've read "no amount of alcohol has been proven to be safe" so many times that it has me a bit spooked. Whee! Being pregnant really is a minefield -- trying to figure out which rules/restrictions need to be followed to the letter and which can be bent occasionally, or even what the rules and restrictions actually are! They all vary from book to book and from person to person you talk to. Even the doctors disagree with each other on some things.

Saturday Andrew got a haircut and then he was kind enough to accompany me on a shopping trip to look for shirts to wear for DragonCon. I'm not particularly proud of my tummy right now -- I'm not really showing yet, but my tummy is flabbier than it really needs to be, and I'm not thrilled with the idea of walking around with bits of it showing. And it's only going to get bigger from here. Thus, shopping for non-midriff-baring shirts was required, as most of the cute form-fitting tees I have are short enough that they leave an inch or two gap between the bottom of the shirt and the top of my pants/skirts/whatever. We struck out in the first couple of places we looked, but eventually success was had and I ended up with 4 new shirts. :)

I also took my belly button piercing out on Saturday. I have finally given up on it. It's been looking worse instead of better since I had the flexible stuff put in (the top hole got all irritated, too, and it had previously been fine), so now I am just letting it heal up. So far it doesn't hurt at all, though I am still treating the area gingerly because I keep forgetting that there's nothing there now for me to catch and yank on. I assume from the lack of pain that it's not abscessing and is healing up like it should. I'd like to have it re-pierced sometime down the road -- hopefully a re-do will behave better.

Sunday we went to the grocery store, and then [livejournal.com profile] min_phoenix came over and dyed my hair for me. So I no longer have two inches of roots and my hairs are all bright red again! :) Yay! :) I feel much more attractive now than I did before, even without getting a hair cut (which I had also intended to do this weekend, but it didn't end up happening). Hair dye is another one of those things that some people consider questionable for a pregnant woman, but everything I've read says it's probably safe, and if you are worried, just don't dye during the first trimester. I asked my doc last week if it was okay to dye my hair, and her response was along the lines of "Honey, there are pregnant women who work in hair salons for their entire pregnancies, and their babies are fine. You can handle a little hair dye."

[livejournal.com profile] kashent also stopped by briefly yesterday afternoon to futz with our computers a bit. I think all the data Andrew wanted has been copied from his old hard drive to the new one now. After dinner, I spent the evening futzing with the demo version of Heroes of Might & Magic V. It's a decent game, but the little bit I played doesn't seem all that different from IV (aside from having animated cut scenes, which aren't even all that spectacular). Of course, there was no game manual or tutorial for me to go through, so I might be missing some things. It'll likely get picked up at some point, but I'm not sure it's worth paying $50 for right now.

I've just made the travel industry very happy!

I've booked flights and hotel for Vegas for [livejournal.com profile] beckyboo83 and me for May 26-28. We're seeing Madonna Saturday night!

I also purchased memberships for Andrew and me for DragonCon 2006, and booked flights and hotel for that, too. We're flying out Thursday night after work (arriving 10:15 p.m., so I'm sure we'll do nothing Thursday night except get to the hotel and crash) and home again Monday evening (flight departs at 5:10 p.m.). And we got a room at the Hyatt this year, so no uber-long walks Of Doom for us this time around. :)

And now....it's time for my shower and bed!

DragonCon!

I intended to make this post when I had a lot of time to put some thought into it, but I don't seem to be doing too well at that. Finally got the pictures uploaded and formatted how I like, and it's bedtime! *sigh* So, a brief rundown:

Friday -- our plane was late, so we didn't get to our hotel 'til midnight. We stayed in one of the overflow hotels a couple blocks from the con hotels, and didn't feel like just randomly wandering over there that late, so we crashed.

Saturday -- Ran into [livejournal.com profile] spiritchaser1 and her boyfriend [livejournal.com profile] amazing_tito while we were wandering around the Marriott trying to find [livejournal.com profile] martinhesselius for lunch. They and a kind Storm Trooper eventually managed to get us to our meeting spot -- in the Hyatt! Met up with [livejournal.com profile] martinhesselius and another friend of his whose lj name I can't remember for a slow and overpriced but fun lunch. Then, we went our separate ways -- Andrew and I to check in and get our con badges (finally!) and then hit the dealer's rooms and the art show for some shopping! I think our purchases on Saturday were mainly jewelry for me, some of which I can't show to [livejournal.com profile] spritenox. Let's just say I now have even more spiders for this Halloween! :) We met up with [livejournal.com profile] martinhesselius, [livejournal.com profile] leliel, [livejournal.com profile] spidersweb, and several other folks (whose lj names I either never got or don't remember) for dinner, also very expensive, but very yummy! And Andrew had folks to WoW goob with. :) Later that night, I finally got to meet [livejournal.com profile] wicked_wish, whose lj writings I have been admiring for some time now, hanging out in her hotel room for some champaigne and good conversation. From there, the group of us trekked to the Hyatt to hear Voltaire. I'll just say that he's a twisted, twisted, but wickedly funny, man, and leave it at that. From there we tried to hit a room party, but I was exhausted and my feet were killing me, so Andrew and I headed back to our hotel room and crashed.

Sunday -- You know, I honestly can't remember what we did during the day Sunday. Oh, I remember -- grabbed some lunch from the Dairy Queen in the food court, did some more shopping to pick up things we'd decided on after sleeping on it for a while, and then Andrew played a Magic draft tournament while I hung out with [livejournal.com profile] martinhesselius. We had dinner in a pub near the food court, headed back to our room for a nap, and then met up with folks for the Cruxshadows concert. Andrew and I have had our hands on a couple of their albums for a while now, but let me just say that the concert confirmed my love for this band. They remind me a little bit of Retarted Elf -- not musically, but in the theatrics of their stage show. It's not all smoke and lights (though there was some of that, too), but instead Rogue likes to climb around all over everything and go out in the audience, and they have dancers, that are actually kind of associate members of the band, on the stage as well. I also heard Marilyn, My Bitterness for the first time. I can see why it's their most popular song. :) After the show, we went to a room party, and I actually managed to stay awake for a while. We ended up crashing around 2ish, though. I just don't seem to have a con-going constitution, or something. *shrugs*

Monday -- Got up and were checked out of our hotel by noon. Wandered around the con, did some more last minute shopping, and got the insert to their Shadowbox DVD signed by the Cruxshadows members that were standing around their booth. Then we headed to the airport and home.

In sum...I had an awesome time! We got to meet several people we've known or known of via lj for a while now, and I liked all of them as much as I thought I would. I only wish that we'd been able to spend more time with some of them.



Piccies behind the cut )

I'm about to head out of here, taking off at noon today to finish getting ready for DragonCon. Our plane leaves at 6:55 p.m. from IAH, so I've got about 3.5 hours 'til we need to head toward the airport.

I'm feeling a little bit guilty about running off to have fun for the weekend when there are thousands of people left homeless by Hurricane Katrina who need help, and I have to keep telling myself that their disaster doesn't mean I should put my life on hold. Plus we paid for our plane tickets and Con tickets months ago; it would be silly to let that money go to waste. After the con, I'm going to look into what we can afford to give, whether it ends up being money, in-kind donations, or time spent volunteering here in Houston. I really DO want to help in some way.

I was going to say something else here, but I've now forgotten what it was. Ah well, it's time for me to run out the door anyway.

Annoyances

Jul. 15th, 2005 11:47 am
cifarelli: (Ember)
Finally bothered to book our hotel room for Dragon*Con last night. Turns out both the Con hotels are full already, so I had to book at one of the overflows. So we'll be at the Courtyard by Marriott on Piedmont Ave NE, which is supposed to be about 2 blocks away according to the booking agent, or .32 miles according to Mapquest. So should be walkable, but annoying. Ah well...I'd say I should have booked earlier, but we only definitely decided to go about a week ago, so I'm not sure it would have made much difference. Ah well...if we have a really good time this year, we'll know to book WAY early for next year. Heck, con memberships will be cheaper earlier as well.

In other annoying news, I got the email just now that my copy of the new Harry Potter has shipped. However, it's coming from amazon.co.uk, so its estimated delivery date is NEXT Friday, July 22. However, the total price (including shipping) is just under £16, which I think converts to less than I'd pay for it here if I paid full price ($29.99). I doubt that many people will pay $29.99 for it here, though. And I must add that I did know I wouldn't get my copy on Saturday ordering it from the UK. Actually, Friday is about what I was expecting. It just means next week is going to be hard to wait.

Even more annoyingly, the copy I ordered for Sprite for her birthday is also behind. I got an email yesterday that it is being "prepared for shipping," and haven't yet received the confirmation that it's shipped. Looking on the site, it's "not yet shipped" but has an estimated delivery date of Tuesday, July 19. Ah well...not too bad, I guess. Hopefully she'll survive until then :)

Well, I did some research last night and it turns out that both of the concerts I was interested in going to in the near future are on the same day. Both Green Day/Jimmy Eat World and The Killers are playing here on Friday, August 19, at the Toyota Center and the Verizon Wireless Theatre, respectively.

However, I don't really have a dilemma as it turns out that The Killers' show is sold out already, and while there are still tickets available for Green Day/Jimmy Eat World, they look like they're up in the balcony and far away, which isn't exactly what I want to pay a total of $108ish for (two tickets, plus handling charge, plus insane "convenience fee"). Anyone know how to get tickets without paying the convenience fee?

I guess I need to get back in the habit of making up my mind ahead of time and getting tickets for things when they go on sale.

One other upcoming show that Andrew and I are interested in is the NIN and Queens of the Stone Age show, coming up October 19, 2005. Tickets for that go on sale this Saturday at 10:00 a.m., and I suspect Andrew wants to go badly enough that he'll order them then. I'm not a huge fan of Queens of the Stone Age, but I do like NIN, so I'm certainly not opposed to us going. Not sure I want it to be my birthday present, though. ;) Too bad [livejournal.com profile] min_phoenix will still be off on a boat, so we won't be able to drag her along.

And, just to be complete, we'll hopefully catch the Cruxshadows at DragonCon. *crosses fingers that they won't play Friday night before we get there*

Lo and behold, I must be back in Houston as I am now Sneezy!

I sneezed a little bit while I was in Germany, but since I got back it's been a lot more frequent, and the lining of my nasal passages almost constantly feels a bit irritated. I never wanted allergies -- someone take them back, please! I'm wondering if I need to start taking Claritin. I don't like the idea of it (it's just another drug that one must take daily), but I don't like feeling this way all the time, either.

I tried to make a post yesterday, but somewhere in the midst of playing with alt-key combinations to try to make the o with the little dots over it, I hit something that made everything I'd written go away. I didn't feel like writing it again, so no post did you get.

At any rate, we made it back to Houston Monday afternoon, after nearly missing our connecting flight from Amsterdam to Houston. The flight from Dusseldorf to Amsterdam was supposed to leave at 8:30 Monday morning, but it ended up being about 45 minutes late. This meant we touched down in Amsterdam at 10:15, and were allowed off the plane around 10:30. To catch a 10:30 flight leaving from a gate on the other side of the airport. Thus much running and fast walking ensued -- the end result was that after arguing with the gate personnel, we were allowed onto the plane, but our luggage didn't make it. This same thing happened to Andrew when he came home from Germany a month ago, though, so we weren't too worried. We'd be without our luggage for one night (thankfully, at home), and the airline would deliver it the next day. Luggage arrived at 8:30 last night -- a little later than I would have liked (only one load of laundry was able to be done, and that was still in the dryer when we went to bed), but not really worth complaining about.

We spent our last weekend in Germany seeing the sights in Cologne. Saturday we walked around the shopping district, but didn't really end up buying much of anything. Sunday, we toured the Cologne Cathedral (or Kölner Dom, as it is called in German), including climbing up the 509 steps to the top of the South bell tower. My legs are STILL complaining at me about that. I will also say if you're claustrophobic, you definitely don't want to go up there, as it's one interminable stone spiral staircase. There are windows spaced out along the way, but I was starting to feel a little like the place was closing in on me, and I've never felt claustrophobic before. I think it partly had to do with the fact that I was working hard to do all those stairs, and I think it was the combination of being out of breath and closed in like that that did it. I didn't really have problems going back down again. The Dom is beautiful, though, and you should see it if you ever get the chance. The web site is http://www.koelnerdom.de/, but it's all in German. You can still poke around it to find some pictures, though. And yes, I'll eventually get around to posting some pictures that Andrew and I took. I haven't gotten them off the digital camera yet, though, so I don't know how well they actually turned out. We should have taken [livejournal.com profile] martinhesselius or [livejournal.com profile] kashent along with us though, as the Gothic cathedral would have been a great spot for a photo shoot. ;)

In other news, Andrew and I purchased our Dragon*Con memberships and plane tickets to Atlanta last night. Still need to make the hotel arrangements, though. Those of you that we know that are going -- which hotel are you staying in?

DragonCon!

So Andrew and I are contemplating going to DragonCon in Atlanta this year over the Labor Day weekend. It'll cost a big chunk o' change to get us there, though, so we're soliciting your feedback. If you're going, or have ever been, please fill out my fantastical poll below, and post a comment with any additional information that you think a couple of DragonCon newbies should have.

The one constraint we have is that Andrew still won't have any vacation time come September, so we'll have to leave Houston after work on Friday, putting our arrival at the Atlanta airport at 10:00 p.m (based on current flight options). Add onto that travel time via MARTA from the airport to the Con hotels, and we won't be arriving 'til 10:30 or 11:00 Friday evening. Is it still worth going if we'll miss Friday?
