Monday I dropped off the net for a few days. It’s been nice for a number of reasons. Unplugging is important because it demonstrates that being plugged in is NOT. Oh, and apparently while I was gone there were people saying unkind things about me over in Keenspot Central. By the time I found out about it they’d moved on to saying unkind things about each other.
I haven’t bothered to go read it, mind you. By the time I got a connection back I had more important things to do, like play with Sal’s dogs, visit a disc golf course I’d never played before, and read some Ringo.
Quick travelogue: Monday I flew into Detroit, and spent the evening in Dexter, Michigan with Sal Sanfratello and the Aegis crew. Tuesday I slept in and played a round of disc golf at the Hudson Metro Park. It’s easily the best course I’ve played. The grooming is nice, and there is lots of variation from pin to pin.
The course was so nice I went back on Wednesday. It’s a good thing, too, because there’ll be no opportunity to play again this weekend. The weather system that slammed Utah and Idaho earlier this week is going to sock Detroit with rain and perhaps snow this weekend.
Thursday Sandra flew out here to join me, and today (Friday) we kick off Penguicon 3.0. My principal project while here — wrangling Evil Stevie’s Convention Chaos Machine — hasn’t begun yet because the machine hasn’t arrived. It’s due to show up “any minute now,” in Rob Landley’s vehicle, and then I’m going to be suddenly, suddenly busy.
I’m looking forward to it. Vacationing has been nice, and being “off the net” has been nice, but it’s convention time, and that means Game == ON.
