Ha! in FL Dec 8-9, NOT Dec 1-2.
I'd written down on my calendar that I was attending an event called the Florida SuperCon Dec 1-2. I got contacted this month about them flying me down Dec 7.
I looked at the website and felt like an idiot. There it was. There's a Nov 30-Dec 2 Anime Supercon, a Dec 8-9 Florida Comic-Con, and a spring Florida Supercon. How did I mess that up?
I hadn't. Their blog entry for August listed me as a guest of the Anime Supercon. I tracked down the original email invitation and I was invited to the Dec 1-2 Supercon.
They're a little disorganized. Not unprecedented for con organizers. I pray that none of you had reserved flights and rooms for Dec 1 expecting to see me.
I'm a little angry about the problems they might have caused you. As for myself, it doesn't inconvenience me in the least (beyond correcting my website and trying to inform all of you). My schedule is equally clear on both weekends and I still would like to escape from the Chicago chill.
To summarize: I will not be attending the Dec 1-2 Anime Supercon. I WILL ATTEND the Dec 8-9 Florida Comic-Con!
Hope you're all well, and I'll try to blog my French adventures soon,

From: FLORIDA SUPERCON
We met briefly at the FX show in Orlando... I'm the promoter of a show in Ft. Lauderdale - Florida Supercon - www.floridasupercon.com
I'd like to touch base re: my winter show - Nov. 30, Dec. 1 & Dec. 2
If you're interested, we'd love to have you as a guest. We would of course fly you in, put you up and give you a per diem. If you check out the website, you'll see the type of show we put on. Let me know what you think.
