[personal] A slow day and a dinner out

Yesterday we were supposed to do another round of basement cleaning with Team E—, but I was just too tired to deal with it. So we laid low instead. Dinner was still on, though, at Deschutes Brew Pub in NW Portland.

A funny thing happened on the way to dinner. Team E— got delayed and couldn't make it. But @MiriamAnneW (of Tor, my publisher) messaged that she was in town, and were we free for dinner. So we kept our plan and swapped out our dinner companions. Miriam brought @suddenlyjen (of Donald Maass Literary Agency, my agency), who was delightfully interesting to talk to. And while walking to the restaurant from the car, @radiantlisa and I ran into @PDXjerseygirl (a/k/a Jersey Girl in Portland), so she joined us as well.

A good time was had by all, except for me becoming fairly ill during dinner and not eating much of anything. Still, I lasted almost ninety minutes. Mostly it was funny because of how much the dinner morphed from when we planned it to when we sat down to eat.

You never know...
