Went to dinner with garyomaha, elusivem, tillyjane and the_child at American Dream Pizza. I’m pretty wiped out, so probably shouldn’t have, but the boys are heading back to Nebraska Saturday and it was my last chance to see them.

I bragged, hard, on Jay Lake: Intelligently Redesigned. We’d read a couple of stories in the car on the way over, and just fallen out howling. I nearly ruptured myself laughing at djonn’s story at the front of the book. I’m way too tired to do a proper job tonight of crediting the perpetrators and photographing the cover, but trust me, this will be a serious cult classic. A lot of people here want copies, but the press seems to be imaginary, at least judging by the 221B Baker Street address, so I’m going to have to petition my connections.

And don’t none of you perps think you’re getting away without signing this for me.

I am so lucky in my friends. Thank you all.

Mr. Lake, your life is overflowing with friends who love you. The book is but one bit of proof of that. We were pleased to see you (and family) in your native habitat.

Correction: M and I are headed for the Oregon Coast on Saturday. We had an extraordinary experience there last year and decided to enjoy it once again, before global warming causes the waters to rise up and wipe out the coastline. After a few days of that we will return home.

[severe look]

Rupturing yourself would be medically inadvisable (OTOH, laughter is good). My main hope is that I'm not in deep trouble with The Child....

The Sekrit Editor discusses duplication in Sekrit Documents. Perhaps such documents could be made available to you...

Somewhat unrelated, but you might find this Wordpress plugin useful. It lets you render LJ tags on a Wordpress blog, plus it has the added bonus of showing up correctly when using the WP to LJ crossposter. I've been using it with mine and like it.
