I ended up scamming my way into the FutureRuby party as Grant's date. Andrea, who had bought a companion pass to the conference, decided to head up North and go to a cottage. (While waiting for Grant to show up, Pete walked by on Queen and asked if I was heading to the party. So, I probably didn't actually need to scam my way in.) The party was FUN. I met the rest of the Unspace peoples, and a bunch of other random people whose names I have long since forgot. The night was long. I'm told the rest of the weekend was crazier.
