Bouchercon 2012, Day 4+

Audience member
raising hand to ask
a question at
Bouchercon 1190,
Lower Saxony
(Cleveland Museum
of Art)
1) 5:05 p.m., Sunday — Some other conference has set up a registration table, and people are walking around wearing badges. What are they doing in my hotel?

2) The Cleveland Museum of Art has a fine collection, but it's surprisingly inconvenient to reach by public transportation. As for taxis, the cab I called from the museum at 3:40 p.m. Sunday may one day arrive, but waiting for a tectonic shift would be faster.

3) Good fun at the annual festive post-Bouchercon dinner, a pleasant tradition in which I've been taking part since my first Bouchercon in Baltimore in 2008.

4) Bouchercon makes the news! (Hat tip to The Rap Sheet.)

Yes, it was high jinks with an apocalyptic edge, all right.

I should add that the annual Sunday night fest is always one of the highlights, a good time, and just the thing to wind down and to avert potential post-Bouchercon blues.
