Sorry I haven't been online these past 5 days. I was moving over the weekend, and my computer was damaged in the move. I am posting this from a public library in Indianapolis. I arrived here yesterday (wednesday) at 5pm and was greeted by rain drops the size of quarters. (You know the kind - the kind that hurt when they hit you.) So far all I've seen is rain and clouds, but the people are very friendly and helpfull here, and the scenery is green and beautiful. The freeways are really confusing though! I have a cool story to tell though. I was reading "Rebel Dream" by Aaron Allston on the plane, and the woman who sat next to me asks to show me something. She turns the pages of my book to the dedication section and one of the people Allston dedicated the book to was her. She just moved down to San Diego from San Francisco and of course I invited her to join our group. How cool was that? And I thought I was the only "geek" headed off to Indianapolis early.
