I bought my air ticket for Worldcon this morning. Already have my room and room-mate lined up, and a membership in the con. I have to say that the thought of 16+ hours in the air (interupted by an hour or so layover, thank God) is a bit daunting. But it's an adventure. Now I must research places to buy historical maps--I want a couple of London (1800, 1810, 1820, if I can find them) and one of England ca. 1810--and find a hotel room in London.
May I just say: Whee.
I think I may have to sell my comic book collection to finance the trip (I wasn't kidding; I am a geek!) but it's more satisfying than having to sell the comics to finance a new toilet or something.
