My rheumatologist thinks my bizarre allergic reaction(s) last weekend were triggered by stress on my already over-active immune system. I was already experiencing a fair bit of pain and fatigue, and I had been pushing myself fairly hard to keep up with events all week. And the hip? Bursitis. Damn, I sound old, don’t I?

things should be less stressful now that the meetings are over and Mike is home. Aren’t they?
Hugs, sweetie. (passing along sweet Yumi kitty kisses…)

Re: Take heart
Thanks. Things are getting better, but won’t really calm down until after Archon/Nasfic/Tuckercon/whatever the heck they’re calling it this year. Thanks for the hugs, and Mischief sends some kitty kisses back at ya.

Time for a rest!
Isn’t this getting older thing lots of fun? New aches and pains every year. but it beats the alternative. 😛
Feel better soon!

Thanks, T. I have to keep moving until after Archon/Nasfic next month. Then I can decompose into a lump of artistic goo [as opposed to simply decomposing. ;)] I’m always amazed at how productive and organized you are.

You are going to Archon/Nasfic? I will try to find you – I am agenting .
allisonsteinJuly 13, 2007 at 4:45pm
Definitely! It’s high time we met, after all these years of emailing each other. Come find me at my table in the alley, or in the art show. Looking forward to seeing you.

If you get one of those motorized chairs for the next con, let me know so I can bring a skateboard and ride behind you.

If we win the WorldCon bid, you’re on! (Because if we win, I’m gonna need one!)

Bursitis is NO fun, but it does respond to antibiotics — at least mine did the one time I had it.
Here’s hoping for slower times, less stress, less pain, and more rest for you.
allisonsteinJuly 13, 2007 at 1:53pm
Bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis… maybe I should just change my middle name to “itis”. Alli-itis?

Hey, Allison! Frank Wu here. It seems like our paths cross every four or five years… Sorry to hear about your ‘itis’ problems. It hadn’t made the connection that you were working on the KC worldcon bid – I’m all for KC!
allisonsteinJuly 16, 2007 at 1:56pm
Frank! Good to hear from you! You know, it’s high time our paths crossed again. Are you going to Arcon/NASFIC/Tuckercon this year?
frankwuJuly 16, 2007 at 4:54pm
No, unfortunately, no. I’m not going to Nasfic or Worldcon. Just too many conventions. Dang. I wish I were going.
I think I might have asked you this when I saw you last time, but I don’t remember what your answer was – do you happen to have a copy of the complete text to the Resurrection Man story by David Hill from E-Scape? If so, could you email it to me at FWu@FrankWu.com?
allisonsteinJuly 16, 2007 at 6:21pm
Wow, talk about a blast from the past! I doubt I have a copy. I’ll check my backups, but it could take a while. I’ll let you know.
