So I'm in San Diego! Staying at the (very lovely!) home of bnsd70. Picking up badge tomorrow morning.

I drove up to Scripps after my plane landed to meet with a colleague. We chatted about Big Project for a while, had lunch, and then we were basically done and I still had a couple hours before Bryson would be home.

So I went to the beach.

Scripps was one of the places I considered for grad school. It was very close, but I chose CU-Boulder instead. It's probably a good thing. I suspect that I might never have graduated if I went to Scripps, instead dropping out to become a surf bum. Today I'd probably be in great shape, tanned, utterly destitute, and totally content. (And maybe drowned, but hey.)

It's been a really great vacation already, and I still have four days of con and people to go. *happy*

Hopefully! And, if all goes well, Tim & Robert and Dave & Alonso and Sean & Matty and Spam & Fizzgig and Robb and Nicole and (fingers crossed) Simon & Jess & Edgar,* too!

(*For a suitably fan-to-celeb value of the word "meet" on those last three.)

I have one set of events that I'm planning to go to. The rest of the time, I'm just going to go to whatever all the people I want to meet are going to. It's madness. Awesome, awesome madness.

Heh. This sounds suspiciously similar to my experience at Stanford, subbing out volleyball for surfing. Although I guess I didn't end up destitute or content, really. But I definitely never graduated.
