Yeah, well. I’m heading off this weekend for the East Coast. I’ll be gone something like a month, ending with Viable Paradise. Then I come back, and immediately fly off to Milehicon in Denver. Then I come back, catch my breath, and it’s off to Convolution in California. Finally, in the middle of November, I return home and collapse into a little pile of dust.
I had some trouble figuring out what to do with the bird–I do not want him spending a month in his little travel cage, which is what would happen if I boarded him. My friend Caliann has agreed to watch him for me, which means that I drive to New York with a brief stop in Texas first. Doesn’t everyone take that route? I’m not sure when I’ll be picking him up again; I’m going to be pressed for time between the end of VP and my flight to Milehicon. Maybe between Milehicon and Convolution. Ugh.
Meanwhile, I’ll be gone from here for a month (though I will check in from time to time). Those of you who know my alternate email address can start using it on Saturday. Those of you on the East Coast, maybe we’ll run into each other. I’m hoping to get a chance to see Gettysburg.
