San Diego has announced the date and time of the hotel room lottery: February 6, 9 am PST. Gentleman, start your redial.
I had my first San Diego anxiety dream of the year the other night. I am dead serious. In this one I was so busy that I never even got to go to the convention or the bar except for one night, and I felt bad about missing every one. Then Philip Bond called me. That’s right, I dream about having Philip Bond call me.
As I pointed out last year, there are under 10,000 hotel rooms in the downtown San Diego area. So if you really want a room close to the con, just go book it now.
UPDATE: I don’t believe it! I had another San Diego anxiety dream last night! In this one, even though I had a reservation, every time I checked into a room at the Hyatt there was someone else’s briefcase in the room — THEY HAD DOUBLE BOOKED! God, this is the pits.
