- The trip to NorCal is detailed here in two parts. This was 947 miles round trip. It was nice because I'm starting to be more comfortable with my new friends out here.
Part 1 : Part 2
Perhaps because I only knew one person going into it, I met even more friendly people at the party saturday, including one guy who lives a couple hours south of here and wants to meet up and watch Firefly. I'm not sure how date-like that will turn out, but hey, he's another Joss Whedon fan that's close enough to see on weekends. I'll take it for now. It was nice to be flirted with, I must say.
- Please note that the Force of Nature countdown for Suz Brockmann's next release has begun! Fun!
- I did even MORE driving on monday, 140 miles for the day. My cousin J called from LAX with a 9 hour layover on her way back to Taiwan for another year of teaching. I was able to take a loooonnnnng lunch and go see her for the first time since we ran a Thanksgiving 6K Turkey Trot together in 2004. She has the pics on her camera because I wiped out my poor battery. We went to an excellent place in El Segundo and did a drive by of the beach. Then I worked late, which is why I didn't post yesterday. I get to drive back down to El Segundo twice this weekend, once in a slow truck to get my couch, once to blow glass and see my cousin M.

Good thing I like driving
I'd initially resisted the idea of heading to northern CA for the weekend because I've just been exhausted. Not "nap on the couch after work" tired, but just fatigued from not enough sleep. I went with the "I'll sleep when I'm dead" theory once again. And this time it was a great idea. Many blessings came my way recently, here are three.
