Wow! Wish I could be there with you!

Well, it's back to Boston in 2012 (and off to New Orleans next year -- whoohoo!). In the meantime, there's always the North East PCA, which we would like to be able to attend even though it seems to always conflict with Halloween (gaah!).

Hey, Kate, what about me? I'll be chairing / presenting on Friday in San Francisco! =)

K. A. Laity said...

Well, Bobby -- I only listed the times that were relevant for the two people I'm traveling with. No slight on you, or the rest of the comics folks (I didn't even list all the panels I'm chairing on Friday).

Will you be there Wednesday to see my paper? I bet I'll have an audience of three -- the three other presenters. I don't know why they don't do Sunday instead of Wednesday. At least I only have to take one day off teaching, but we're going to have to get an early flight on Wednesday.

I thought some innocent saber-waving might be in order and I know no slights are ever intended ;-)

I don't see why I would miss your panel on Wednesday. Elizabeth is still waiting to see when she presents in Gender Studies, but we plan on showing up Tuesday afternoon.

K. A. Laity said...

I said that because most people miss Wednesday -- just like most people miss Saturday afternoon. Not everyone can attend the whole of the conference, but I really pity the people who only come for their panel and leave. Sad.
