[livejournal.com profile] jeffreyab has created an LJ community for discussion of Stilyagi and ConFusion. You can find it at [livejournal.com profile] stilyagiaircorp. Speaking of LJ, and ConFusion, and giving credit where credit is due, I should mention that the LJ stickers I handed out at the convention (and which a couple of people have mentioned in conreports) are the brainchild of [livejournal.com profile] daedala who gave them out at her LJ party at Minicon a couple years ago and was kind enough to share the template with me. Between the ones I gave out and the ones [livejournal.com profile] devon gave out at the LJ meetup, there were probably about 75 people tagged!

After ConFusion, [livejournal.com profile] minnehaha's B&K came back to Great Oak for dinner and to spend the night in the common house. B had been to GO before, but K had not, and since she has an interest in cohousing we thought we'd take advantage of her being in the neighborhood to check us out. It being Sunday after the convention, however, we were all of us tired and worn out, so it was a pretty subdued visit. Not to mention that it was damn cold, and GO is much prettier in the summer when you can see all the fabulous gardens. K headed out on the train in the morning, connecting up with the rest of the TrainFusion crowd leaving from Troy.

The other reason for the staying over was that B had a speaking engagment at Wayne State University in Detroit on Monday night. Although [livejournal.com profile] minnehaha B and I have been friends for a couple of years now, and I was one of the 100 or so people who got to read bits of his latest book as it was being written, I had never actually had a chance to see him speak. So in exchange for playing chauffeur, I got to tag along to the talk, which was a lot of fun, even though the audience was a bit slow to warm up. I dropped him off at the airport hotel on my way back to Ann Arbor. This was only the second or third evening out I've had since Liam was born, so that was a luxury in and of itself, even if I did have to drag my pump along. Luckily the bathroom had chairs and conveniently placed eletrical outlets.

Back to ConFusion for a moment - as is par for the course, we were planning for next year's convention even before this year's was over. I've been jonesing to run consuite at ConFusion for a couple of years now, and hopefully next year will actually see that happen! Liam will be a little older but still needing his mom quite a bit, I expect, so I've been instructed by the heir-apparent conchair [livejournal.com profile] rmeidaking that I need to have a strong second. There's also some talk of me having a sort of Division Head role overseeing Hospitality, which would include main consuite, smoking consuite and green room. Which obviously makes a lot of sense from a resource allocation and cooperative shopping stance. I'm really excited about the possibilities.

And now I really should get back to work - between my sick day last week and my vacation day yesterday, I'm waaaay behind and scrambling to catch up.
Wow. Over the weekend Liam turned from being only interested in cheerios to being just crazy hungry. It started on Friday night, when he ate an entire jar of bananas while sitting in the sling (a surprisingly good substitute for a high chair!). Tonight he had some bread, a cube of carrots, a cube of apples, a cube of sweet potatoes, at least half a banana and half a rice cake. And probably could have eaten more, but since he insists on feeding himself as much as possible this took quite a while and I wanted to give him some time to digest before bed. I have to totally readjust my thinking about how much food to send with him to daycare and to do for dinner at home.

It's past his bedtime and he's still awake, partly because of the aforementioned time to eat and digest, and also because he took a late nap today and doesn't seem tired yet. Not to mention that he could really, really use a bath, but that's something Eric and I usually do together and Eric had a dinner clean shift tonight.

I'm pleased to report that Liam is already demonstrating good taste. The bread he was noshing on was a nice sourdough farm bread from Zingerman's, and I've never seen him be quite so excited about a food. When he got to the point where he had just a chunk of hard crust that would fit whole into his mouth we'd take it away and he'd get soooo upset!

He was exceptionally cheerful and playful after dinner tonight - I think he's finally over his cold. But Oscar at daycare went home with a fever today, so we're probably just days away from the next round...
