Speaking of which, I should keep this short and go to sleep but I just wanted to say that I had a fabulous last two days in SF; friday evening got to see Borderlands Books and chat with folks there, and had Tasty Indian dinners with Tim and Meryl and talked to Bill on the phone, and then Saturday I had a nice morning hanging out with Meryl - really enjoyed a chance to get to know her a bit better this trip; Tim is an old friend from college - and then in the afternoon Tim and Meryl and I went to Half Moon Bay and walked on the beach in the sun - another gorgeous warm day. Today I took the train to the airport, got through security, bought lunch and went to find a table, and discovered one that had Anne Harris sitting at it! She'd been to a manga convention, since she's thinking of writing something in the genre, and was heading home as well. It was nice visiting before and during the plane ride (we weren't sitting next to each other, but she stopped in the aisle to chat).
Got in to Detroit and was picked up by Matt, and on the way home called mom to let her know I was in safe, and she invited us over to dinner, so we went and thus mom and dad are mostly debriefed on how the trip went and I am well fed, and, as I mentioned, clean, and I am going to bed (in clean sheets even, but loose around the toes the way I like them!). Goodnight!
