the_monstrosity was amazing. I worship at the alter of Wes and Steph (and too many other names to list here).

Colour me seriously impressed. Thank you thank you thank you for sharing that with me.

And long live the Vortex!

I didn't get to stay long, or party much, but I had such a great time. Despite the fact that P was too ill to join me.

In fact, P is still sick and still in Huntsville :( Hopefully, he'll make it to his conference in Baltimore tomorrow.

So wonderful to see old friends, and make a few new ones. Wishing I got to hang out with people a bit more. Next year :)

I miss you all already.

Dear ldy-- text messages will be delivered to your phone showing YOUR time, which happens to be NEW YORK time, in addition to your local time, you stupid New Yawker, you.

Let me take a quick moment to thank you, Otis, the Hilton Shuttle Driver, for being willing to drive me to the airport spur of the moment for the heck of it on a slow shuttle day. I hope you get to visit the Botanical Gardens again sometime soon, now that you believe that you are better equipped to appreciate it. May your days be brisk and interesting.

I already miss my burgeoning Southern accent. It'th even thexier wiff teef in.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I will not let my horrific grit experience or my dangerous Southern salad woes steer me away from Southern food in future. Someday, I may tell you about room service at the Hilton, the multiple phone calls, the three hour wait, the forays into random voicemails, the amazing disappearing and reappearing (one day later) breakfast order and the gluttony for punishment. Someday. The wounds are too fresh. Friends don't let friends dial 622. Or any of those darned extensions.

Mind you, the food, when it did arrive, was really quite good.

Save for the grits. Let us never mention the grits again.

My cat is very happy to see me.

And I just helped M buy a book from her childhood. Bloody thing cost $70! Nutty.

And I hear that Z had his guitar signed by Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen over the weekend. Joe gets top billing because he was the nicest, and Yngwie gets last because he (or his roadie) signed it behind closed doors. *sigh* Guess who needs a new guitar now :P

Five days from now, I'll finally get to see the boy play out.

My writing in this journal has gone from semi-interesting and informational to blahblahblah. Need to change that.

My presence here will be erratic at best this week, and nonexistent next weekend. I will try to post pictures at some unspecified point in future.

No way I'll be able to catch back up with the lot of you. Hope you all had a fantabulous weekend, and have a week of adventures for me, K?

I have rehearsal tomorrow, a "take-back-the-karaoke" birthday party on Tuesday, and heavenknowswhat on Wednesday.

Oh, and that work thing. Keeps cutting into my day, that does.

I miss you, both those of you I've had the pleasure to see in meatspace (hm, meetspace?), and those whose pixils I didn't get to immerse myself in online while I was away meetspacing this weekend. I'm blessed to know each and every one of you.

The complexity and absurdity of what could have been such a freaking SIMPLE sentence tells me it's time for bed.

Nightnight, LJ. :)

Hugs to those who need 'em, those who want 'em, and those who don't run away quickly enough

I'm feeling all kinds of: meatspacey
What I hear: me clickity clacking when I should be sleepity sleeping

Southern salad woes? You mean you don't like Southern deep-fried salads? ;)
ldy From: ldy Date: November 6th, 2003 04:24 pm (UTC) (permalink)
My Souther salad was a quarter of a head of iceburg lettuce, plopped on a plate with some bleu cheese, raisins and something that resembles bacon but not really.

I think I'd prefer my salad deep fried!

you had the wrong kind of grits! grits are good! they just have to be homemade!
ldy From: ldy Date: November 6th, 2003 04:25 pm (UTC) (permalink)
I'm dying to try them! Really! But the hotel gave me a congealed lump of... something! Something that was not exactly grits!

LET US NEVER MENTION THE GRITS AGAIN!

If you didn't want grits, why did you order breakfast? It's mandatory, as you now know.
ldy From: ldy Date: November 6th, 2003 04:29 pm (UTC) (permalink)
Oh, but I WANTED grits! I'm eager to try grits! However, what the hotel gave me was almost completely but not quite entirely unlike grits.

LET US NEVER SPEAK OF THE GRITS AGAIN!

I tried all Friday night to wish you a Happy Halloween, but for some reason, I couldn't text either you or Michele :(

Happy belated halloween anyway!

Tomorrow morning, I'm off to be an almost wicked stepmother again. Wish me luck ;)

Glad to hear that you made your flight!
I hope P was feeling a bit better today - If I knew what your room number was, I would have checked in on him before we left...

I'm so glad you both made it down this weekend. We had a great time and it was so good to see you!! I hope you both get to spend a bit more quality time together this coming weekend with Z!! :D

Love you lots and lots

J

P recovered well. Of course, then I had to come down with a sinus infection. D'oh!

Tomorrow, I'm on a plane again. Someday he and I will live in the same place. Someday...
