Other matters

xmas me
1. It hasn't been all hotel hell. I also popped into the ROM, met up with [personal profile] trouble at last, and found a store selling jade items that would make my father's heart sing.

2. Yes, I did think of heading to the more expensive hotel this morning, but....it really, really pisses me off that I was not told about this, even when I made the reservation and said, hey, I am coming for a convention at your hotel and will be bringing an elevator. If I had been told in advance that the Best Western had no elevator I could have budgeted for the Sheraton. To find out after arriving....

On a very minor note the main entrance to the convention center is a lovely series of waterfalls and stairs. No wheelchair accessibility -- you have to enter through the mall or through the Sheraton.

3. Also helping: I've already met up with a couple of people and caught up with Karen Lord in between her socializing, so that's a plus.

4. But the thought of that steep and long ramp (carpeted, just to add to the fun) is really depressing me.

5. On a completely different note, Hurricane Sandy knocked out power to Tor's offices. Since I didn't get this week's posts in until the weekend, there will probably be no Tor.com posts this week.

Going to rest a bit more and then see if I feel like peering out.

I happened to encounter someone online who's on the WFC board and passed on the concerns about REAL handicapped access to her.

Thanks.

More and more WFC people have shown up increasing my ability to find people who can help, but still.
