As usual, I've been terrible about contributing to my own journal. I still go through these bouts of depression. Except it doesn't really feel like depression. At least not that painful debilitating stuff I go through sometimes. I've been feeling fairly good, just not able to overcome the inertia of being home. I have been being pretty productive. Getting a lot of my volunteer obligations up to date. I'm very excited about a project I took on a few months ago. I'm doing publications for a new science fiction convention that will be based in San Francisco. It's being inspired by conventions like WisCon, which is a convention I've always wanted to go to someday.

The new convention is called FogCon For Friends Oh Genre fiction and we're having a great time getting it all together. It happens this coming March. One of our Honored Guests will be Pat Murphy who wrote one of my favorite science fiction novels of all time The City, Not Long After. We just added Fritz Lieber as our posthumous honored guest and more cool stuff will be coming. I hope folks local and nonlocal can come out. I'm really proud of what we are doing.

I have cellulitus again. On antibiotics, but this has been a rough one, Seems like all I can do is read, watch TV, and drool. The fan on my computer died. fortunately I was given a new iPad (more on how how I came to be given one, later). I love this iPad as an ereader. I can access the Internet on it too, but its not so good at posting for me. I am enjoying reading old SF (all the stuff I can get for free.) I also downloaded a new Heinlein biography Robert A. Heinlein: In Dialogue with His Century Volume 1 (1907-1948): Learning Curve by William H. Patterson, Jr. Which I'm enjoying reading, but wouldn't recommend to anyone unless they were pretty hardcore RAH fan.
