So how did the science fiction event ConFusion and the furry convention Further Confusion happen to be on the same weekend? Is it always thus? Was it planned this way? Shouldn't they be on consecutive weekends?

This comes up only because I was at Taiwan Buffet in Taipei Madison Heights for dinner, and across the way from me were two fannish-looking people, and their presence reminded me that ConFusion is this weekend, in Troy. Among the many features is that tarkrai, a.k.a. Steve Macdonald, is musical guest of honor.

My fortune cookie said this:

You will make a change for the
better within the year.

They don't know me very well, do they? I mean, I change my underwear every day... they couldn't mean anything better than that, could they?

Tonight's entertainment was provided at Trixie's Coffee. I both heard and saw Resident Alien and Cowboy Messiah. They're good, rockish three-piece bands. I didn't catch one lyric because the sound mix was biased toward instruments, but the overall atmosphere was good. Another band was scheduled, but I left before they started.

Snow is expected tomorrow. The forecast is for only one inch, but due to the affliction of media hysteria the forecasters are acting as if it'll be three or four inches. Sigh.

Confusion and Further Confusion...
Despite the names and the times, Confusion and Further Confusion are not related.

The name Further Confusion came about because it shortens to 'Fur Con'.

They aren't usually on the same weekend, but since there's no coordination between the events, it occasionally happens.

Re: Confusion and Further Confusion...
I figured there wasn't any grand scheme here. Just seemed like kind of an odd coincidence.
