Within:
  • Writing Fun Challenge 7: tick, tick.
  • Lunch and/or dinner and/or drinks with Merekat


I would like to call your attention to the WFC7, whose deadline rapidly approaches, and is at a time to cause maximal inconvenience and whining to every timezone likely to have a participant in it. Write, dammit!

I would also like to point out that Merkat is coming, Merekat is coming. We should have lunch one day during the week of Oct 29-Nov 2. We should also have dinner sometime that week, though Merekat is unsure til she gets here which one she'll have free. I can do any night but Wednesday, and, I think, any lunch hour that week. This'd be a great place to weigh in with your constraints and/or requirements.

Otherwise how are things? Simon got a clean bill of health from the vet on Wednesday. He'll still need to have his teeth worked on at some point, which, since it involves sedation and his liver has just been ill, will be delayed at least til spring. We bought a nice big bottle of la Fin du Monde for our catsitter, plus a gift certificate for three trapeze lessons. He really responded above and beyond the call, trying to force antibiotic pills down an unwilling feline throat.

The wedding reception thingie in NC was wonderful. It's nice to get to know K & K better, meet their critters and in-laws and stuff. And see stars, which, it being the dark hinterlands of the South, were visible in abundance. And it's good to see tf-mom when she's doing well. Though the whole thing wore her out pretty thoroughly.

But it's good to be home. For 5 days. Before my next trip, to a conference in Huntsville, AL. Funny story: one of my colleagues would, from time to time, mention to his father (who lives in TXia) that he was going to Huntsville. "I always knew you'd come to a bad end," the father would say. Seems the state prison is in Huntsville, TX.

How bout them Red Sox? Snatching survival out of the jaws of elimination. Or something like that. They still have to win all the rest of the games, but hey. That's only two now.

And I'm out.

Lunch by Kellnerin (4.00 / 1) #2 Sat Oct 20, 2007 at 08:53:21 AM EST
Monday-Wednesday are better for me than Thursday-Friday. Dunno if I can do the dinner thing though.

I'd wondered about the odd hour of the WFC deadline -- which, I just realized falls on Saturday, which means a submission by Friday. /me commences whining. toxicfur, ana needs to be punched, hard.

Monday to Wednesday aren't going to happen next week. How about Thursday? I could do 12:30 or 1:00, if that Thursday meeting doesn't wander to the wrong time.

If lunch doesn't work out, maybe dinner on Thursday would be possible?
