The weekend had absolutely glorious weather, including the high winds. I think those are a good thing, bringing home to you the fact that you are on the Great Plains like nothing else does...the sun and the scudding cumuli and the wind and the temperature made me want to get back into the Sportage after unloading, drive out to some chunk of rural farmland, and just kick back for a few hours, watching the clouds roll by.

However, duty called. I was supposed to meet drunkenphlower and danae Sunday at 5 to talk about AD registration, but we hadn't picked a place and I hadn't heard from either one of them as of 3 PM on Sunday. Finally got hold of danae, who hadn't heard from drunkenphlower either, so we agreed to meet up at the Caribou over by the Sheraton, which we did, adjourning to the Sheraton itself when the Caribou closed at 6. It turned out that drunkenphlower had been called in to work (J, I just want to say for the record that your job sucks) and wouldn't be joining us, but we kicked around the registration stuff for a while, moved on to staff/volunteers philosophy, the sociology of the AD staff and resultant problems, and eventually the conversation degenerated into wankage about local fandom, which I have become a past master of since I know Entirely Too Much about the history of why local fandom is the way it is. At that point (8 PM) we both badly needed dinner, so we adjourned to Q. Cumbers which has the best salad bar outside the Skyroom at Dayton's, or whatever they're calling it this week. Salad and entrees ensued along with conversation on topics that are, frankly, none of y'all's business. We left about 9:30 and headed to our respective homes; maybe we'll get together on Friday for Utena. We'll see how the week goes; I have no social life, but she has too much of one, which is the variable here.

Of course, when I got home, I was unable to get to sleep until 1 AM, and I have balancing to do today. Urrrgh. I think I'm going to go pillage Taco Bell.

*snorts* No-one seems to believe me. But at least I get to say I told you so on occasion....;)
