epershand: Grace is rocking the boom box (Grace: BAMF)
Have you been considering coming to FOGcon (March 11-13, San Francisco, new convention made of awesomeness) but don't have the resources to make it to the Bay Area this year? Are you based in Madison or the Twin Cities?

[personal profile] jesse_the_k is looking for a personal assistant for the con. To quote Jesse:

I'm looking for a personal assistant (PA). Their job description would include:
1. Push my wheelchair
2. Keep me on an even keel cognitively, which includes taking the lead in navigating airports, noticing if I'm too tired to think or too hungry to sit up, etc.
3. Run errands outside the hotel if need be

The PA would *not* have to do lifting, bathing, toileting or other body care.

I'm willing to pay for the PA's FOGcon membership, the other queen bed in my con hotel room, and airfare (if we start from Madison or Minneapolis). We'd arrive in SF on Thursday 3/10, the day before the con starts, and leave on Monday 3/14.

It's a sweet setup. The down side is, since I need the PA to get anywhere, they must be there ready to get me moving at the start and end of panels. Depending on hotel layout, that could mean they can only attend the panels I'm going to.

[personal profile] jesse_the_k fails to mention a very significant up side: you get to spend an entire con hanging out with her.
