traveler returned

I have returned safe and sound from LA. We had an excellent time, which I will describe in more detail once T has uploaded his photos. A few tidbits in the meantime:

  • In a bizzare bit of cross-marketing, the shampoo that the hotel provided smelled exactly like the cinnamon rolls served at the free continental breakfast. (Note to A and SB: no apparent change in T.)

  • We had some time to spare in the room this morning and we spent much of it watching coverage of Hurricane Katrina. I hope that anyone in its path, or who has friends and family that are, is safe and sound today. Thoughts for my brother in Nashville are appreciated.

  • I finished Something Rotten while on my trip. Collapse ) The sequel to Sailing to Sarantium is next. I'm a little less than halfway through and enjoying it completely.

  • Being largely without access to email (I got to check it once in luvmoose's hotel room) and completely without access to LJ was weird. It's been a long time since I was that unwired. Refreshing and unsettling at the same time.


Off to see what y'all have been up to...

epilogue

My epilogue to "One More Confessional" is posted.

This piece effectively ends Paine's portion of the Quartet. (I have two related vignettes in the works, though, and who knows what my mind is brewing without my knowledge or consent...) But as for the journal-style writing, I'm pretty sure that is finished, at least for now.
