"She" knocked on my door today, and started going on about "wanting to learn how to build computers like me", and how she'd decided to practice on the dead PC downstairs. So I asked her what she'd done with my NT test system.
Answer? Taken it apart. She was happy to hand me the pieces.
Somehow this was the conversation starter for "Could she stay a bit longer". I told her that the eviction proceedings normally took some time, so, yeah, she could always hold out until the cops carted her out. She didn't like that one much.
We ended up having a fairly long, and serious, conversation about our relationship, and stuff we both probably shouldn't have done. I don't know if any of it got through, but I at least managed to get a lot of stuff off my chest. It felt much better.
Then I went to con. I spent the evening in my usual way - I walked. It's a big building, and I must have gone back and forth about 20 times. I don't know why I do this, but the exercise is good for me, so I won't complain. I ran into several people, and had quite a good time, so all's good.
Every time I came back to the event side of things, I spent some time cuddling supersniffles, at least until the casino closed and she disappeared. She's running Extravaganzas with next to no staff (Especially since people like, ahem, wavewarrior flaked out after volunteering), and could use as much stress reduction as was practical. I got to meet Matt, her main lover (firestrike, I believe?).
Aurellia and Veronica ran into me, in one case quite literally. Aurellia successfully dragged me onto the swing dance floor, and also kept me there for about 20 minutes. This is near unheard of. I spent a fair amount of time hanging out with them, until they decided to go to the gaming room. Unlike a lot of fen, I have no feeling of superiority over gamers. Gaming just bores me. So I went back to wandering...
And that's pretty much my day. Mix in some fansub anime, talking to Jean and Chad at the back balcony dance, and a snack with Angel in the coffeeshop, and it's mostly complete.
