I'm up and clean and dressed and oatmealed, which seems to mean I'm ready for my nap... or so my body would have me believe. I guess the travel took it out of me. I'm sitting here checking email on my stepmpm's computer listening to Bob Edwards on public radio; Teresa has a wall map of the US on the wall right over the monitor, so I can see exactly how far I traveled yesterday and how far I have yet to go. But not until Wednesday.

Still, once you've driven across the country widthwise, halfway up the east coast doesn't look far at all. I'm trying to think of this road trip as a vacation, and more about the journey than the getting there. And I'm looking forward to visiting with folks along the way.

On the other hand, I'd like to have the whole moving thing over with.

I think I'm too goal-oriented.

stardusting is home safely, I see. Anybody see the streak of light? I left the west coast just in time to miss it.

Impeccable timing is a trademark. Why do you ask?

Book signing in Winston-Salem today.


Bon voyage!

I hadn't realised you were driving all the way, but of course if you're moving, you would be on account of all the stuff. Silly me. *g*
alas! so close and yet so far! I'm in Raleigh! Will you be here in the next four days?
Alas. Just W-S. Two to four o'clock today--you could still make it!
I seem to have missed the moving announcement. Where are you moving to?
oh, I thought you were visiting. Didn't realize you were moving.
*gasp* Your book lies!?

a completely unrelated comment

I've been reading your LJ for quite a while, and meaning to say hello, but I'm not terribly good at commenting when I don't feel I have anything to say.

Today, however, I'm reading Scardown (and really enjoying it), and I just came across "Roupen's Bistro". *^^* I suppose it's possible that the name is coincidence, but my immediate assumption was that it's named for a young Torontonian chef with wonderful hair. So I thought I'd let you know that it made me very happy. ^_^

And while I'm here: hi, I'm Ysabet, and I lurk like a mad thing. Thanks for giving so much insight into your writing process and thoughts; I've been getting a lot out of reading your entries.

Re: a completely unrelated comment

It's not coincidence. Hi, Ysabet! And please do comment any time!
There's famous Roupen? The only one I know is slightly older than I, and (at least as of about ten years ago) was infuriatingly prone to MISQUOTING Python (and other things) at the top of his lungs. And hanging out in goth clubs. His sister was one of my now-sister-in-law's friends. :->
