I am so looking forward to it, but no Otto, sadly.    

Leaving for Georgia soon

I will be keeping a trip diary and posting irregularly… I have decided not to take my computer because I simply cannot afford to have it confiscated by the US government.  I have NOTHING on the computer which would warrant that, but I’ve been complaining under my real name about the US government for 10 […]

Garageband intermediate lesson a success, thank you Lisa (also her fur babies Luna, Romeo and Chai, two chill dogs and a cat).  Drive out to Maple Ridge was HOT.  Even with ac. While there found out that my Garageband IS gibbled, it’s not just my imagination and I should probably reinstall.  Also got an appointment […]

Sitting at YVR

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

I’m about to board my flight home, and I am very happy to have been to FKO and even happier to be going to sleep in my own bed. It was awesome to see DJD and Chipper and Catherine and Shirley and Judith and Tammy and I am just vibrating from the glorious circle last […]

From pooped to peppy and back again

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

I just ran out of gas at around 12:30 last night, which was unfun, but today I got to hang around in the consuite and saw DJD for four whole hours, which was really really awesome.  He’s about the same as always, and Sandra hung around as long as she could before she went off […]

My brain has gone birdsnesting already. Work is interesting.  I backspaced over most of an email this morning that while righteous was, erm, inflammable, sent it, and received the benison of the account manager, who promptly asked me why I wasn’t running things. My response was that I am hysterical and of short attention span, […]

I got […]

I am settled into my room at the Double Tree Worthington

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Cindy will arrive shortly and go straight to sleep in my room. I will find something to do with myself while she kips and waits for her room to be ready – I am thinking I might like to go look at the enslaved animals, if only in remembrance of the other Ohio animals who […]
