I noticed you because you look a lot like a friend (and fellow retired teacher). I'm pretty sure she's in Arizona, though!
We enjoy some of the same authors. I always enjoy Mark Billingham at mystery cons as well. He's quite a comic.
Hi Helen! You look different today? New hair do? Oh wait -- you have a whole new face. Very nice indeed (I cheated - read 4MA first otherwise I would likely not remember to notice given a distinct lack of sleep last night)
Thanks for asking me to be your friend, Lynette. I'm still getting the hang of the whole concept, but it makes me feel so popular! That cat meets world class standards in being lazy, and he does being cute almost as well. :)
