(Thursday 11-Nov-1999)

After the staff banquet on Thursday night, the con suite was open to the general membership. [Joan Palfi and her mom, Fern Palfi, agreed to bring a hot plate, a saucepan, and a four-cup glass measure the next day to help me with my party preperation.]

Leah Smith, Alex Eisenstein. Leah offered use of a crockpot - actually a hot pot cooker, the kind with the plug-in thermostat element which can be used as a deep fryer. I've been on Leah and Dick's mailing list forever, or at least fifteen years anyway.

Joel Zakem, Leah Smith. It turns out Joel had heard from a fourth cousin who he hadn't seen in ten years, and had arranged to meet him in Chicago on Friday. Joel offered to drive me, Lynn, and Mrs. Longyear (Regina) to the train station on Friday and we'd all take the train to Chicago. Unfortunately, even though they left without me when my shopping trip ran late, they didn't catch the train, and Joel ended up driving all of us into town himself. Thanks, Joel, it was very thoughtful and we all appreciated it.

Randy Kaempen; Joel Zakem at lower left, Leah Smith. Randy is in charge of the Chicon 2000 Registration database. Randy also offered use of two crockpots for me to cook 17-bean soup and Macaroni and Cheese in. Thanks, Randy! (I believe this photo is the first one I took where you can see one of those green "MET FGOH" ribbons.) at lower right

Sydnie, Maria Rodriguez; Lynn Baden looking on. Remember I said Sydnie and Maria became friends? This scene is a momentary truce in a little ice cube battle they were waging in the Con Suite Bheer Room. (None of them drink beer, they were just hanging out.) at lower right looking on
