Fairytale Princess Amy

From zero to insane in 60 seconds

Scott used my strongest and most favourite memory of Greg as his closing remarks in his address. I can't describe what that means to me. Honestly, I can't describe what Greg means to me. So you can some fuzzy math and figure out how much it meant to me that the legacy Greg left me touches more than just me. For those who haven't read Scott's comments, he posted them here: http://smcmullan.livejournal.com/2543.html. We missed the entire service (see previous rant about Charlottesville being X,000000000+ miles from anywhere and having road-seeking trees)

When we saw Darlene again, I realized that I'd previously been wrong. I do remember meeting her before. And after hoppie said it, I remembered where. We'd had lunch at Harvard Sq. at the Garden cafe (I think that's what it's called) right near Out of Town News. I had entirely forgotten. All the more reason to get down everything that happens in my blog, I guess. So even if I forget, I can still catch up.

When you read xkcd don't forget the alt text.

We played many, many, many rounds of "Who is that person?" during the weekend.
Redsox, you are the only, only

Moments pass and time moves on, but dreams remain for just as long as their dreamers

Greg is going to be with his father.

It was probably as well for us that we had Shabbos with N & E. It gave me a chance to catch up on live for them. With N's new job, I've not been sure when good times were to talk to her. And even when we did talk, it was hard to know when she'd have time. It was nice to talk to her by herself. Of course, there were lots of times when we had hangers who wanted us to pay attention to them, but even still, we had good QT. And E and Hoppie geeked out a bit.

E was grateful for someone to truly geek out with. N isn't really exceptionally techy. And she was grateful to be able to talk about her job frustrations. E doesn't really have the patience for that.

I want to buy this for hoppie: http://www.vat19.com/dvds/finger-drums-tabletop-drum-set.cfm

Yes, I'm out of candy. I just haven't had a chance to go shopping. I'm sorry. I fail at life utterly. Can I please stop having this conversation. I promise I will bring in more. I really, really will.

(I've decided to do short takes like these instead of a formal trip report. I sat down to write a trip report yesterday and completely froze. Then I realized I'd rather log the little vignettes that interested me rather than attempt to lay everything down chronologically.)

Hello spring. I can't see you outside, but I know you're out there. I feel you in my heart, and I'm looking forward to spending more time with you.
