Last night's open dinner was terrific. We had nine people, including me, meeting up at Threadgill's in south Austin. My old friends Chris W. Johnson and Brendan Boerner, whom I've known since about 1986, turned up. So did my cousin N—, whom I see only once every few years. She came up from San Antonio. Some of the usual suspects were there, including mrtact, Sean Kelley, @dratz and Mrs. @dratz, as well as Austin area fan and writer John Gibbons.
A good time was had by all, and many calories were consumed. The cross-pollination was fun, too.
