me: people keep asking when I'm going to take some vacation time and go away some where and I don't really have any ideas on that front at all.
him: you should, though
him: vacations are good
In our conversation, I mentioned how everyone I know is working so even my usual plan of visiting people doesn't so much work. It occurred to me that if I'd known there'd be all this pressure to take vacation time (and go away somewhere to boot) I should have made plans to go to writercon [I have difficulty self-identifying as a writer, so it barely even registered on my radar, being something that people who actually write seriously would go to -- plus, not like I know any of the actual writers in any of my fandoms ... but now I know that at least I'd get to meet lunabee34].
