At 3 pm-ish today, maeyan and I are off to Chicago for Serenity. I may not be in Philly or KC or Cambridge (?)with the bulk of my buds who are going, but I'm with ya in spirit.
And then Friday morning we're heading to St. Louis to see sarabi and kjwagner and spousi/small people, so I'll be fairly incommunicado until Mondayish when we get back, though I imagine I'll get the chance to update/skim at least once or twice. And I'm textable.
Also, we've rented a PT cruiser for the trip (rental special, not any particular desire to drive one). It's... weird. Everything seems to fold down or be detachable. And it has no cruise control. As maeyan pointed out, that's sort of a misnomer, isn't it?
