There are worse things to have going weird on you, but I really don't recommend this one, if someone gives you the choice.
It was a pretty good day with some highlights that were better than that, up until around suppertime. I don't mean to say that the whole day was bad and upsetting. Just the latest bits with food in.
I am in the middle of packing to go to scottjames's wedding this weekend. Dorothy Dunnett, The Book of Reykjaholar, Gil's All Fright Diner, Selma Lagerlöf, Orca, and Sean Stewart. Yes, the obvious Sean Stewart: Galveston. (It, like the Brust, is a reread.) Also some clothes and stuff. markgritter and I have both been to Chicago, and while we haven't seen even close to everything there, we also have limited energy and a half-trained dog to mind. So...take-out Chinese, some local park, and the interior of our hotel room, is the basic plan. It claims to have free connectivity, but I have no idea whether that means I'll be on lj like crazy or once for five minutes Saturday morning.
I didn't make the perfect auxiliary wedding present for these two. We've already sent their real wedding present, but if I'd had time, a loaf of Guinness gingerbread would seem really appropriate. But I don't have time, or rather, I don't have time plus energy, and I figured they would rather have me in non-zombie form than bearing tasty Guinness gingerbread.
I could be wrong about that, though. It's awfully good stuff.
