outside the domain of your effective powers i had a little plastic life

Well, there's a picture of me up on their Facebook page, so I guess it's official enough to mention.

I've been asked to be the GoH at Eurocon 2011, in Stockholm, Sweden, and not being an idiot, I have accepted.

I look forward to seeing some of you there,

Also, eeeeeee!

I'm just thrilled to death, as you can probably imagine.

It's a wonderful time of year to be in Stockholm. Try to make sure you have enough unscheduled time to spend a few hours poking around Old Stockholm, around the Stadhuset. Cobbles are a right nuisance (so be warned, and have good shoes or boots with ankle support), but it's a very beautiful area.
That's pretty much what I was going to say. Also, castles - most wer closed when I was there in late January, but in summer they all ought to be open. And the Vasa Museum was wonderful. You will probably be in the con hotel or I'd recommend the place we stayed, in walking distance of the Old Town - but it's in an area full of nightlife so would possibly be noisy in summer anyway.

Also, I don't know how much you've traveled in Europe - generally you can expect hotel rooms, especially showers, to be tiny by US standards. But when you're really lucky they are in older buildings (we had a charming airy attic room in Stockholm and stayed in a 1600s building once in Paris) and are wonderful, despite the size.
I love that Jethro Tull song!
OMG wow!!!!!
My sadly-neglected fanfics, of late. *sigh*...
Wow! How fantastic. I've always fancied going to Stockholm . . .
Meet you there!

Maybe we can roust out Siggen...

:: more ritual jealousy ::
Eeek! *g*
Wohoo! I'll see you there then!
Congratulations! :)
RU taking stowaways in your luggage? :)

Kidding, congrats!!!!
If they let me bring a date, I was thinking of asking your SO... since she's never been, and it is the ancestral homeland and all.

Dude! That's just an overnight on a ferry away from me, and I've been meaning to visit Stockholm... pretty much since I moved to Finland. *g* What an excellent excuse.
Yay! See you there! In two years... *g*
That's wonderful!
Yowzah! Way cool -- congratulations!
