[personal] Home, and an eventful, friend-filled weekend
I got home from Omaha last night, to be met at the airport by the delightful Lisa Costello. Gabrielle Harbowy and Fanny Darling arrived at almost the same time for a weekend visit, we did the lunch thing, then spent the afternoon at Nuevo Rancho Lake. There we were joined by tillyjane (a/k/a my mom), the Niece and the_child.
This morning, the_child goes off for a weekend of lacrosse, while the rest of us head for Pine State Biscuits, along with Dad, for breakfast. The tribe is having a dinner this afternoon at the home of Lisa and Jersey Girl in Portland with Gabrielle, Fanny, mlerules, and Team E—. We invited Debra Stover as well, but she could not make it. After that, most or all of us are off to a rocking St. Patrick's Day party for the evening.
Also, today I plan to put the final edits on the submission draft of the nonfiction chapter on steampunk. Maybe some other revision tomorrow, maybe a day off, but I need to get on to assembling my slideware for the forthcoming Nerd Nite talk on genomics and cancer [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ].
For those playing along with the home game version of "Where's Jay", I'm off to Orlando, FL on Wednesday to attend ICFA. Yes, Mr. Don't-Go-Out-In-the-Sun is going to Florida for five days.
