Worldcon Wind Down

L.A. is reporting over 6000 members. This does not appear to be a count of "warm bodies" (that is, folks who are actually here), nor is it clear how they're counting one-day memberships.

Sales at the table have been kinda mediocre actually, but Tullio and Amy's ray guns and such have done quite well. We've sold all but 3 of the 21 items they sent. And we've sold more than 20 of Worldcon Guest of Honor Speeches plus a fair number of the other books on the table.

I had some fun at the art auction today, cutting out early to get ready for my concert with daisy_knotwise, and bought a piece at the auction before leaving. Now to figure out where to hang it...

Gretchen and I sang the following half hour set: Request, Remember the Hyatt, SMOF Widow Blues, Second Class Fans, Wings, and Apology. We had a good audience and it played well, so we were delighted.

And now it's about time to head down to the last of the open filking.
