...I've Arrived

Bullet-point recap:
- Three and a half hours of heel-cooling in OAK
- One and a half hours of peaceful flight
- Point three hour of tear-spurting, dying cat-like yowling baby in the seat next to me
- One afternoon of blabbing with aunt, uncle, and cousins I don't get to see often--and rarely at the same time!
- Two helpings of marionberries, in a crisp and in a crepe
- One visit to the fabulous Powell's; millons of books admired
- One copy of "Hornblower During the Crisis" bagged, the only one I haven't read
- Two double beds in the hotel room, and two sinks
- One vegan mezza platter and one glass of peach juice consumed at Nicholas with work friend, one of the joys of visiting Portland
- One half glass of water spilled onto mezza platter
- One new bathing suit left at home
- One convention underway, o hallejulah

One nice thing: though we have no natural light in our staff office, we do have a view of the exhibit hall floor, and it's fun seeing the booths being built.

...I had no idea you were an age-of-sail fan. We should talk.

The Hornblower books totally hooked us. Now we want to go on the tall-ship cruise around the bay. Didn't you do that recently?
