[travel] And so I arrive in Omaha

Well, saw calendula_witch off this morning, then hopped my own flight to Omaha via Denver. First leg was uneventful. Changing planes, I took a bump off the plane (free ticket, yay!), only to get bumped back on the plane, with my free ticket in hand. Weird, but cool. In Omaha, the gold counter at the rental car place was backed up 15 people deep and not moving, but I nipped up to ask why, and spotted my name on a set of car keys. So I got to skip the line of people without reservations who were waiting for cars. Dinner with garyomaha and elusivem, and now to my hotel.

In other news, I knocked out the first draft of a 4,700 word short story called "Mother Urban's Booke of Dayes" for the Dark Faith anthology project. We'll see if Maurice likes it. Also revised a shorter spec (meaning, no market waiting) piece entitled "Not Much of a War", which is from the Flowers continuity, briefly concerning the further adventures of Jason, Kalliope and Onesiphorous. (It falls midway through Madness of Flowers.) Read calendula_witch's latest wordage on Our Lady of the Islands, and dipped into a bit of another Sekrit Projekt.

Huh, wonder why I'm tired?
