Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?

Last night

As is clear, I am not at OVFF. This makes me very sad, but at the same time last night I spent the evening at a party with 100+ folks from my old theater department. I saw friends I hadn't seen in decades. It was amazing.

My step-mom threw the party, and no one throws a better party then her, my father held court all night. He taught at Drake for 30+ years, and the thing is, I knew folks going back to 1966. There were folks who had babysat me, and there were women I had crushes on back in the day ... all in the same room.

This is the only thing that could have possibly kept me from OVFF this year. And yeah, it's been worth it (I was afraid it was going to be a dud, but that was only my usual pessimism).

I'm spending the weekend with old friends, I wish I was with my chosen family. I will be wandering around with phone in hand this evening (I still think s00j is going to win, but just in case).

And I do miss you all, but it's for a good reason.

And Toyboat will have an interesting announcement shortly.
