Vagantes

Not that I needed more to do, but I've volunteered to coordinate packet stuffing for Vagantes, since it's coming up and various packet-related issues have been floating through my head regularly as of late. Having heard nothing about the conference in several weeks, I ran into two people at different points in my day who could, happily, tell me lots about what was happening. Last year, about 60 people came to the conference, so we were expecting about that many to prereg, with some more just showing up at the door. But no... instead, about 100 people have preregistered for the conference!! The space is still big enough to hold them all and still feel comfortable. The acoustics aren't great in the Chapel, but it's certainly a pretty space, with paintings and stained glass. Housing has been found for all speakers, just some minor housing details to be worked out. It sounds like things are going together nicely, and I finally have more news to send out for the Vagantes newsletter. Really, that's why I was asking all those questions. I write the newsletter for this year's conference and it seemed odd that I had nothing to send out when it was this close to the conference happening.

Speaking of conferences, has anyone received their Kalamazoo program book yet? I'm positive I had mine before this last year. It makes me paranoid. Maybe mine's lost in the mail somewhere?

Nope, we haven't gotten ours yet either. Speaking of 'Zoo, I need to register...

we all need to meet up and have a LJ drinking fest.

Down some mead and think of me
I don't think I have the moolah to make it to the 'Zoo this year, more's the pity.... Drink heartily, everyone, and have enough fun for the both of us!

Oh, and maybe learn something, too :)

Kalamazoo stuff
I know there was SOME Kalamazoon paperwork I never got through the mail: I ended up picking it up there at the little information table when we got to the campus.

I wouldn't be paranoid.

Re: Kalamazoo stuff
I have a good incentive to be paranoid. Two years ago, K'zoo lost several boxes of program books, so there weren't any available for anyone who hadn't brought the one they'd been sent. It was painful. I had to get a deskcopy to look through each night and write down absolutely everything I could possibly want to go to.

Anyways, I'm in the program book for the first time ever, so I really want a copy of my own, even if I no longer like what I titled my paper.
