shmoo part two

it's all set.

i officially have my flight to shmoocon, and the hotel room. i'll be in dc from the night of thursday, february 5 until the evening of monday, february 9. i'll be staying at the wardman park marriott, the hotel where the con is happening.

*squee*

note to anyone who is going--you can get some dirt-cheap fares on southwest airlines if you're willing to take the bus into town from BWI. it's not a bad bus ride, and it's worth it for cheaper plane fares.

another note to anyone who is going--right now, hotel prices on hotels.com are ten bucks a night cheaper than the advertised con-block rate. as such, it's probably a good idea to book there now instead of holding out for a special con-block room.

In the interest of full disclosure, that's not in downtown DC.

Yep, ill be there. I didnt buy a ticket for the con tho. Im just going to hang out with the other losers who didnt get one.

sweet! shmoo's going to be awesome...and even though i have a ticket, i'm starting to think that my workshop attendance rate at shmoo is going to be just about as pitiful as it was at HOPE.
