THEN flailed through traffic (85 is a parking lot, NOT a freeway, btw) to scgraphix for a few hours. She gave me the first four books from the Codex Alera (thanks for the fix, jocosa !) series to get started on :D:D:D Yay for WereLlamas bearing bookly gifts!
Meeting a lot of people from all over the world at the conference we're here for -- I sit in the lobby with my knitting hoops or restringing a mala and get all kinds of company! Or in the bar, which I CAN go to as it is *ghasp* NON-SMOKING! I could get to like Atlanta if not for the traffic.
DH called the daughters, just before hanging up mentioned that the weather has been clear as long as we've been here. Hung up, then BOOMCRACKWHAM! and rain!! I called tultema and told her and we giggled.
