- The British Society for Literature and Science was an exercise in overlap. Every time I saw someone else I knew, I had to think: did I know them because of academic history of science circles or science fiction circles? I'm not used to seeing them all together in one place, engaged in one academic enterprise.
- At aca's birthday party, I ran into someone who recognized me from Eastercon in 1998.
- There were Pie People at madcatlady's wedding party.
- Loreena McKennitt has a new album out, and is therefore on tour. I learned of this by way of irisbleu, who then already had a ticket to the concert and was going. So last night, leaving the concert, I ran into coalescent, partner, and friend. He was surprised at the coincidence; I observed I knew someone else there. It turned out the friend knew irisbleu.
Now it's my turn to go be an extra.
