Anyway, the short version is that despite having a cold, I had a lovely lovely weekend with a lovely lovely cathijosephine at Arisia. I did a lot of sleeping and a lot of sitting in a warm bath with a good book and (once a lot of sleeping had my energy back up) had a wonderful time at a wonderful party with wonderful people. chillguru and bbbsg stayed in our room on Sunday night, which was great because I love any opportunity to spend time with them. I made some nifty purchases. I saw almost none of the programming.
I was really bummed to hear after dropping cathijosephine off at home on Monday that her guinea pig, Pigpigpig, had died. She has a much more accepting and realistic (in my opinion) attitude towards death than most people do, but still I know that was not a good thing to come home to. He was a cutie and I'll miss him.
Ended up having sushi with docorion and cathijosephine Monday night, which was a good opportunity to reconnect with docorion.
Had been planning on making use of my very early arrival at work today to get to the Diesel early, but my otherwise much improved cold has turned into a cough that registers 2 on the Richter scale and gives me the voice of a three-pack-a-day blues singer, and while I'm probably not very contagious, I'm scary, and anyway, my nice warm bed beckons. So now home to rest.
The original post was about four times this long and much wittier, by the way. Oh, and it contained an elegant and simple proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, but now I can't quite remember it.
