As for the driving, well, the most frightening drivers I've seen were Californian tourists. Weather, place time, NOTHING keeps these people from endangering everyone on the sidewalk!
Hey, here in the San Francisco Bay Area some of our freeways have 5 lanes, and they're still not enough to keep things flowing nicely...you send us to places with non-California (read: non-sunny) weather, take 3-4 of those lanes away from us...

What are we supposed to do??

No way. Boston streets evolved from cowpaths, and it's all been downhill from there. Plus the drivers (and parkers) are insane. The last time I visited my parents at Christmas, I went into Boston for some last minute shopping and found people parked on the off ramp near Govt Center.
Oh, well the Boston streets themselves certainly win the random weirdness award.  I just meant that I'd never thought to see a city with street and highway signs that were more vague (or just more absent).

Did you go to a restaurant in Pacific Grove named the Fishwife, Kismet? That is the best seafood restaurant on the planet, bar none. I meet people in the most random places who have eaten there.

As for the Fishwife, I belive we talked about going there but decided against it in the end.

*smiles sweetly* Not my fault your from California, Jonte. How you can live there is beyond me. I spent Independence day weekend in Redding, and it was the nastiest, hottest, and overall most miserable experience in any state I've ever been. Even the heat of Las Vegas didn't hold a candle to it.

I live her because I love it here.  I spent three hellish years in Georgia and could not get home fast enough.  

And for your information, nobody lives in Redding.  Bleh!

Hellish is synonimous with Las Vegas. 5 years spent hoping that my shirt was the right color for this block, that the bench I was about to sit on hadn't been vomited upon by transients too recently, and that there was air conditioning somewhere within the next block or so. The only redeeming factor was the bus system. Nothing beats public transit as a place to freak people out by talking to spoons and shouting invectives at the monkey in your backpack. Try it, it's fun :)

OK, I should have known this would be taken the worst possible way.
                   Not at all, it's all in good fun here.

I regret any other inadvertent conclusions that might be drawn from my off-the-cuff comment.

If I were a WW I wouldn't be getting this kind of bowing and scraping. :-) Seriously now, friendly banter is rarely misconstrued.

I will buy you lunch the next time I'm in the Bay Area

Trust me, if you ever show up I'll be sure to TAKE YOU OUT TO LUNCH.

and will allow you to charm me in person.

It seems more likely that our roles would be reversed -- I seem to have lost all inklings of being suave and debonair when I became a grad student.

Jonte, when's that convention? I want to mark it on my calendar to make sure that I don't accidentally schedule something else that day.

That's good. :) I tend to over-apologize rather than under-apologize; note how I even apologized to Jason in this very thread. :) Better to be unnecessarily sorry than not sorry enough. Plus I was having a stinker of a day at work, so I just assumed the worst.

That sort of sounds like a threat rather than a promise ...

I will try to not sweep you off your feet.


Has anyone read War for the Oaks by Emma Bull? The phouka sort of reminds me of Solaufein.

Okay, now that I've stopped laughing... biologically impossible. We're considering a WW-auxiliary though   :lol:

You mean, it's biologically impossible for him to be a WW? He's not saying that he is one, he's using the subjunctive so he knows that he isn't one.

I believe the link was actually to some L. Jonte art that JC later reposted here.
Newt had always suspected that people who regularly used the word "community" were using it in a very specific sense that excluded him and everyone he knew.

             --Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, "Good Omens"
