The right and the power

It’s really easy not to use parentheses and em dashes if you don’t blog for a few days!  I’m back from my visit with PymFan, which was enormous fun.  We more than fulfilled our shared goal of sitting around and talking endlessly.  It was great to spend time with Mr. PymFan and the PymFan cats, too.  And I got to have lunch with a friend from high school with whom I only keep up in a very general way through Facebook; there, too, we were able to just plunge into a long conversation about work and middle age and high school and teaching.

There is still more to talk about with PymFan, though, which is why I hope we can arrange more frequent visits in future.  It’s pretty much a 24-hour trip in each direction: drive six or seven hours one day, lay over somewhere, finish the drive the next day. We’re looking at the possibility of a midpoint meetup for next time.

Today I slept in and now I’m looking at a list of things that need to be done during business hours today before the long July 4 weekend.  I’ll be at SA for a couple of hours in there, dealing with this and that, and running a couple of errands on the way there and back: library, UPS place, etc. And a coffee with Dr. Tea (sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it).

    Thoroughly enjoyed all our talk, but YES, there’s much more talking to do! I’m already fantasizing about the meeting-half-way possibilities…
