A restless night. The bed kept growing warm beneath me.

OSCON party

Cool in the morning. Turning pleasant by afternoon.

The theme of the party was The Elements.  The ballroom was divided into four parts, representing Air - with bungie-trampoline rigs that people could try out, a bubble machine, (not very comfortable) inflatable armchairs, and pop corn and cotton candy for all who could stomach them; Earth - with rock climbing, pet rocks to decorate, an earthquake simulator, and a potato bar; Water - a couple of dancers inside giant clear beach balls floating in a pool (I think that they were supposed to be ballerinas.  But they couldn't do much more than strike poses.), two seahorses on stilts, and sushi; and Fire - a couple of fire dancers, and phad thai.  Oh, yeah, and beer and wine and mixed drinks, Italian sodas, pop and water.  And, as I found just as I was leaving, ice cream bars.

Selwood Park

Clouds in the morning, turning sunny by noon, with clouds creeping in again in the afternoon.

Packed a sunhat, sunscreen and water bottle, and, of course, my tablet, and rode to Selwood Park.
