Broken Prius

I'm sitting in a motel room in Princeton, West Virginia (not far from Pipestem or Bluefield, south of Beckley), on my way back from Kindred Spirits with bcholmes. Her Prius broke down, we think -- in true Apple or Microsoft style, an error message appeared, telling us to call the dealer, but it provided no further detail about what was going on with the car at all. I can't seem to get through to Yahoo to get at my mailbox, so if anyone happens to talk to linuxspice, please let her know that I won't be home tonight....

The week itself was amazing, if rough. And I was complimented on my cute Canadian accent. :-)

Considering where you're at, you're not coming any closer to Columbus than Cambridge, are you? *sighs* I miss ya!

Glad you enjoyed your trip... Looking forward to having you (virtually) back soon - hope the car isn't too tricky to fix.

Did you try rolling all the windows up and rebooting? ;)

...you do have a cute Canadian accent!

I just love listening to accents in foreign films and TV shows, soak them up like nothing else. Mind you, back in March I was the one with a foreign accent, I guess! *WINK*

Gah! I am sorry you guys are trapped in a little car that isn't going. Hopefully things will get sorted out fairly quickly.

I had a wonderful time and I was so glad I met you and bcholmes. Be safe and I hope you make it home in one piece without any more difficulty.

It's been much too long since we've talked; I haven't heard the new canadian accent yet!

Well, I'm expecting to be in Cleveland later this week at some vague time, once I can sort out crash space and find a time to meet my advisor; would you care to get together?

I'd love to!

Drop me an email when you have a better sense of what the plans are -- ursa74 at hotmail.
