Tomorrow morning, I’ll be leaving for Penguicon in Detroit, so today is eaten up with (a). finishing up day-job work, if possible, (b). charging all phones, cameras, iPods, and mini-laptops, (c). trying to plot a wardrobe, and (d). preparing the household for my absence.*
In a few minutes, this whirlwind of activity will be interrupted by Psynde, who will be joining me for lunch. This is probably a good thing, because it will distract me from my imminent freak out over here. I like to travel, but I live in permanent fear of forgetting something important, which is probably why I tend to be the most ludicrously over-prepared person in any given group of out-of-towners. But hey, when the zombie apocalypse comes, some of us will have all the Benedryl, band-aids, Advil, Maalox, notebooks, lotion, pens, tissue, cough drops, eye drops, hand sanitizer, and tiny flashlights … and some of us will have NOTHING.
I make no apologies.
Anyway. You may reasonably expect me to be all but absent for the next few days, though I’ll make a point to stay (more or less) current over on Twitter — on account of I can post to that site by phone, from the road. So follow me there, if you’d like. Otherwise, I’ll see you all when the party is over.
* Changed kitty litter, cleaned the fish tank, etcetera.
