Twas the Night Before WorldCon

It's 2:30am and I've just caught the end of "Rodan".

This afternoon & evening was spent flying from Vancouver to Montreal.
Good flight with an aisle seat & an empty seat beside me - chit-
chatted for a while with a nice lady from just outside Montreal who
was in the window seat. Also read a bunch of short stories that will
need to be added to the 365 short story challenge tally later.

Arrived in La Belle Province and found myself in a cab with a driver
who spoke no English (serving a major international airport no less!
Ah, official bilingualism!). Luckily, I still remember enough high
school French to get by if needs be. Luckier still, my high school
French wasn't as bad as The Tick's when he was transformed into a two-
headed blue bird!

Got to the hotel and saw some fellow geeks hanging around out front.
The clerk at the front desk confirmed that a large number of WorldCon
attendees had checked-in this evening (not to be confused with the
mammary specialist convention the hotel is currently hosting).

Must get some sleep now. Tomorrow: let the Con begin!
