[travel] Off to LA, open question thread

After a truly lovely weekend here in San Francisco with calendula_witch, I am off to Los Angeles this morning. Will be in Torrance, CA through Wednesday morning, then back home to Portland. Have some things to report, about a car show we dropped in on, as well as more cancer Fear stuff, but that blogging shall have to wait until this evening.

In the mean time, consider this an open question thread. Whether you're a brand-new reader or a long-time friend, ask me here in comments about writing, life, cancer, whatever.
