I'm sitting in the Omaha airport, where my flight was supposed to have pushed back from the gate by now. Instead, it's been delayed until 11:00, which means that I miss my connection at O'Hare, and won't get to Buffalo until 4:15, or to Toronto until dinner time. And then I need to work a full day after that, to get our story in on schedule. Grump, grump, grump.

Despite our missing Pride, the weekend was still really wonderful. linuxspice's family are all very sweet (especially her grandmother, whose birthday it was), and they remind me more than a little of my own family.

This week is going to be a complete blur. I'll be working like crazy to get the story that I'm working on in by Thursday afternoon, at which point linuxspice, thespian, danaeris and I are taking off for Palenville and Boston, possibly via the Rochester ferry.

Oh well, at least the Omaha airport has 802.11....

I don't know how much you've read about the ferry, but just about every week here in Rochester we hear about that stupid thing being damaged by it being slammed against the dock..

And they told us that it would be up and running again wayyyyyy before now..

As Howard Borden of the Chicago Newhart says "Sometimes Omaha can't be avoided."

Hey! Don't want to be a nag, since I know you just got back... but we should finalize details about our trip, since people are asking me when I'm arriving/leaving and I have no idea!

I'm going to attempt to arrange to be done with work at 3 p.m. just because it simplifies things. So at that point I can be back in Hamilton by 4 for pickup, or I can stay in TO for rendezvous there.

I'll make a point of being done with work by 3, too. I'm not sure what the ferry schedule is going to be, and there's an outside chance that I might need to make a stop in Kingston on the way, but we can come get you at work in any event.

Oh yeah, I'm also wondering how you guys would feel about having our own room party Friday or Saturday night so that we can invite our local friends who aren't attending Gaylaxicon to come be social.

That could be cool, but I'm the wrong one to ask. Do you have linuxspice and thespian's email?
