Life activity

Feb 17-19 I went to Boskone

Friday: Panels on how to read aloud (good), aristocrats in SF (good); filk
Saturday: Joan Slonczewski "hell in high school", creationism, meh for me, then short story writing, meh; hung out; character in hard SF, with a panelist who denies he writes it, meh, went to Song Sequitur instead, fun. Underpinnings (assumptions) of SF panel which was fun, with Jane Yolen, and an entertaining military guy, though he gushed about the Windup Girl. YA panel "why so dystopian?" Optimism and pessimism in SF, which I left early for food.

AWESOME FILK CONCERTS by S. J. Tucker and Heather Dale. Actually the proportion of songs which were outright filk wasn't that high. Still good songs, good singing, and good performances. Individually, then con highlight, then encore, and also a close-up one Sunday.

Boskone's warming up to costumes again.


Song circle Saturday, which was fun. Met an old cousin yesterday at the MFA, also fun, then went to the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA). Holy art Batman, it's huge! Also expensive, $22 to get in, though you get a second visit free. I spent the afternoon just trying to eyeball everything there, actually really using the place would take days.

If you use Bank of America, they pay the MFA admission fee for the first full weekend each month. I forget which other museums they cover.

Interesting, but I don't. I try not to use banks at all, credit unions instead.
