I have to admit, it's a lot more fun to have him with me--especially when one is stuck in Memphis for three hours and staring vaguely at the departure time slowly slipping from 9:20 to 11:30 and then changing departure gates on the way home. Also, both of us were limping--we were a sad little twosome trudging through the Memphis airport this afternoon.
Right. I'll eventually document for the future, but.
1.) taraljc is made of awesome. She made sure we did not die alone in Chicago lost and staring blankly at multicolored train lines. Also, Child has a crush on her to end all crushes. He's making vague noises about her and Dr. Who while staring rapturously at comic books. This is possibly the funniest thing I have seen in my life.
2.) svmadelyn is awesome. Just saying. Awesome.
3.) talitha78 and the Field Museum--awesome. We had such an incredible time there. Lizards in bottles!
4.) Finally met researchgrrrl in person and so very very--yes, the word is awesome. celli and shrift were also amazing fun. Food was nice. Snow was *cool*.
Now the thing.
Legs. HURT. So much. Jesus. We walked *so much*. I am not putting my feet on the floor again until I have to. Like, next year. Dear God my calves think I am punishing them and so punish me.
And that's the short version. Child alive and telling stories to everyone, no one died, and life good.
So, did I miss anything?
