Membership have been selling at a steady rate all summer, and with the recent Terry Pratchett Author Tracker mention of the convention by HarperCollins (as well as a post by Neil Gaiman on his journal), we have taken in over 150 new memberships in the last couple of weeks, putting us at our cap of 900 members. We have closed down registration while we process all of the new memberships to determine if we have any space left. If we do, we will re-open registration briefly, and alert everyone to this opportunity via an e-newsletter and our news forum (http://community.livejournal.com/nadwcon2009/). We are limiting memberships due to the size of our main ballroom, which can seat 900. We assume everyone attending the convention will want to be in the room when Terry is speaking and we want to make sure everyone will be able to fit into the room.

From my former VP:
"We are leaving June 18th. I wanted to send you a revised announcement about our cats. We are still looking for someone. Even if someone does not want to take them permanently, then if they could take them from now until the middle of September that would be great. At this point if someone wanted to take them on an interim basis -- we would purchase all food, pay any vet bills if there are any (don't anticipate any); and pay them a little bit for taking care of them. Anyway this is the other option we are presenting.

We think the only way we will be able to work this out is through personal contact because all of the shelters are really full up. Thanks for your help."

Please consider taking these two sweet old boy kitties.

Been a whole lot easier since the bitch left town
Been a whole lot happier without her face around
Nobody upstairs gonna stomp and shout,
Nobody at the back door gonna throw my laundry out
She hold the shotgun while you do-si-do
She want one man made of hercules and cyrano
Been a whole lot easier since the bitch is gone
Little miss, little miss cant be wrong

Little miss, little miss, little miss cant be wrong
Aint nobody gonna bow no more when you sound your gong.
Little miss, little miss, little miss cant be wrong
Whatcha gonna do to get into another one of these rock n roll

Other peoples thoughts they aint your hand-me-downs
Would it be so bad to simply turn around
You cook so well, all nice and french
You do you brain surgery too, with a monkey wrench

Little miss, little miss, little miss cant be wrong...

I hope those cigarettes gonna make you cough
Hope you hear this song and it pissed you off
I take that back I hope your doing fine
And if I had a dollar I might give you ninety-nine

Little miss, little miss, little miss cant be wrong....

DEAR ABBY: I clearly remember my first Valentine's Day. I was in first grade. A few days before, my mom asked how many kids were in my class, and we went to a store and bought large packages of valentines -- one for every child in the class. The cards were all the same size and said, basically, the same thing.

When I arrived at school, each classmate had a small box on his or her desk. At some point during the day, I went around the room and gave each child a valentine. There was one for the quiet one in the back, the most popular girl in class, the prettiest and even the boys. This was long before society taught me that such a show of affection had to exclude people of the same gender as me. By the end of the day, everyone had a full box of valentines to take home.

One desk, one box ... the love of a child.

As I grew older, society taught me to narrow my offering of affection, picking only those I chose to be special or worthy. Eventually, I was taught to limit my valentines to only one person. More time went on, and then a card was not enough. To show that really special person what she meant to you, you needed to send flowers, candy and jewelry.

Apparently, as we grew older it took more and more to fill those boxes. Now we absolutely could not give to more than one person. People hire detectives to make sure that the person isn't filling anyone else's. And if you had no one to send you anything, you were saddened by your big, empty box filled only with sadness and despair.

Today, I am taking back from society what it has taken from me. I'm counting how many people play a role in my life, and I am buying "virtual" packages of cards. I have one for every single one of you -- man or woman, young or old, straight or gay, married or single. Each card is the same size, they all say the same thing -- that I appreciate who you are and what you have to contribute to each other.

I invite each and every one to do the same, so that no box is empty and the shy ones, the pretty ones, the popular ones and those who are less so go home tonight with a full box of valentines.

One virtual desk, one virtual box, and the love of a child at heart. I wish you all a happy Valentine's Day. -- ERIC IN LOS ALAMITOS, CALIF.

Aw gee thanks Eric. That made me feel all squishy inside. I used to give them at the Nile and that was a lot of people and I was pretty po. I gotta start doing that with e cards so Im not killin trees.

1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.

2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.

3. Include these instructions, and share the love.

Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you're in a heterosexual marriage, and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.

HI, have you met me? Im an independent thinker and voter who doesnt get my political information from emails, youtube compositions or extremist web sites from friends. Yes, I may post things from time to time that I agree with but I try not to be one sided about it. I try to get many sources, reputable sources that I know not to be either liberal or conservative. If something is partisan, I look up not just the opposite, but varying gray areas in between. My mind can be changed by academically gathered information but not shit your grandpa sent you. and definitely not from local or FOX news.

Just as I do not blindly accept reactionist, extremist propaganda from liberals, I do not accept it blindly from conservatives. ALL politicians are corrupt and corruptible and hypocrites. Their ardent followers, which is what they are, pick and choose the bits they like from their candidates just as they pick and choose from religion and other "moral" institutions. Are you a hypocrite? Im not.
