Second City Second Trip

Tonight I shall speak to ye of highlights and photography, for I am, alas, too tired to give you a more detailed entry. I kept on falling asleep during my journey back home ... I missed all my favorite parts, like the plane takeoff, or seeing New City from across the river. Oh well.

philly13.jpg is my new favorite. I've taken a lot of shitty photos this year, but now I've at least two that are going in my "damn awesome" books.

Prior to rollerskating, Friday was very soggy. I did better than my goal of only falling once ... I didn't tumble at all! I had some very near misses, but somehow remained on my feet. As I have just relearned how to operate my body as a whole while on wheels, I am downright amazed by the things some folks can do ... weird stretches, hip shaking and traveling in grooving schools, skating tighter than fish can swim.

On Saturday, I learned the wonder that is JoMar's. It is not a play on the JoAnn's store chain and three_marlanas's name. No, it is something better!

A movie-watching moment in which the timing was so excruciatingly perfect:
Female Character: I have disgraced you and your father!
brilliantnova: So jump off a cliff!!

And without a pause, not even a breath could be taken ... as though she had heard through the screen, she did.

Sunday was much happy wandering, over too soon. New City responsibilities called me back.

A big thank ye goes to whowantscookies, three_marlanas and jezeroth for being awesome hosts, and stefan_ for showing me around on Sunday morning.

[Edit: WTF? I have two rechargeable batteries, I was unable to bring one with me because it was still sucking up juice when I left the house at 6:00 a.m. on Friday morning. Two days later, it is ... still going.]

    At the rate I'm going, I wonder if I should just give up the ghost and sell all the fabric/patterns I've been carting around for years. Teaching plus…

    The kittens are watching my mouse cursor and/or my text appearing as I type. Their heads are moving in unison. It is so cute. I just can't see what…
