Stayin' Alive!

Hey, all!

I'm still alive, my plane didn't crash, the ride from Queens (where our hotel is) to the city (where the book fair is) didn't kill me, Mary my roommate hasn't stuffed a pillow over my face to stop my snoring, my fellow DSPers haven't shoved pie in my face to stop me from telling dreadful jokes, (or talking altogether!) and I seem to have survived a book reading that I was late for, as long as a very quick ascent up two flights of stairs that this body was SO surprised it could make in record time.

*whew*

So, uhm, yeah-- it's been a little busy.

But I wanted to blog--because I can't remember the last time I did it and that's bad!

So far, my pictures are sort of crap-- great memories, crap pictures--which I will probably post later anyway for effect.  The Rainbow Book Fair in New York was a LOT of fun-- it was a CRUSH--massive quantities of people in a tiny, tiny room, but I got to meet all sorts of folks I know from on line, and I think I made a few friends as well.  That's always amazing to me--the people you know online are TRULY your friends.  Julie, Roxie, Donna, Saren?  It's real.  I adore you.  I WILL MEET YOU if it kills me.  Things like this always make me melancholy that I haven't yet.

And yeah--I haven't seen my kids or my Mate in five days--missing them a little...lot...huge, massive quantities that I can't really express in print!

But the "let's go into the city and play" part of my day starts today--and that will get us more pictures and maybe, a little bit of breathing room--but so far?  The trip's been frickin' awesome!

How absolutely cool! And yes, of course it's real. Feelings are feelings whether they're face to face or screen to screen.

You are adored in return!
