Rosanne says she'll email me from Thailand. Yay!
Came home yesterday and fell asleep in my clothes. Awoke at 11:15; went to bed. Slept until 7:30.
At 12:30 today in There I IMed Chrys and said, "There's a game at 1 -- right?" Last week she'd agreed we'd have a game at 1pm PDT -- and she was there when Vid and I talked about it, and he talked about the possible game times he could make (since he's in GMT). Dev and her son were going to come. I asked C if she'd send a group email cancelling the game -- she said she'd never told anyone it was a possibility. I felt like I was being pushy, however I just had assumed there would be a game since we'd discussed it.
I IMed Vid and talked to him -- he'll try to make it tomorrow. We've had two games. The first one was a lot of fun. The second one was weird. I was being goofy until I realised I was the only one being silly, at which point I clammed up. The player for the other side ran off. Carp played after that, but he seemed to assess the situation after a bit, and decided that there was no reason to prolong the agony.
Last Wednesday was the "State of There" address, given by Brett Durrett ("sadly yes that is my real name. I started as employee number six at There in 1999. My duties at There have been keeping the service running, and more recently managing customer support. Last week I also became the acting general manager of the There community team."
Rather heartening: "There are not plans to shut down the service either in ninety days or at any time thereafter." I started out listening at Josie2's, but after a freeze-up (a bazillion people logged in and things got funny) I listened through one of the number of There web radio stations. Afterwards I went back, but only had a short discussion with the people there. I'm happy about it, and I'll be even happier when my broadband gets hooked up in a week or so. Yes! BB!
I also made a men's souvenir shirt as Cat says she hears from men who would like to have one. Submitted it. What else have I done today... hmmm... nothing much... made another men's shirt -- a T shirt. Haven't submitted it. Cooked some food... watched "A Mighty Wind." :-)
