* The trip from Woods Hole to Connecticut was generally uneventful, give or take a half hour delay caused by immobile traffic; which, in turn, may have been caused by construction, but I'm not sure. I read the whole way, The Shadow of the Lion by Mercedes Lackey and various other people. It's set in a fantasy-world Venice. Some of the characters spend a great deal of time on rooftops, where there are a notable lack of pigeons. Also, everytime characters go anywhere, the destinations are several miles apart. They must go out of their way to find places no where near each other.

* I can't find a phone jack in the room I'm staying in now. I know there must be one somewhere. Mustn't there? So I'm using my grandmother's computer instead, which isn't near so convenient for me: especially since it means I actually have to see the spam I receive for once.

* Is the writing workshop over already?
