Graduating to Pointy Objects

Back in the Ivory Tower, roller skating was my poison–no, not poison…it was the rapunzel I cultivated in my garden until it flourished green and tempting to naive passersby.

But the tower crumbled–as towers do when self-rescuing princesses have access to dynamite–and I made my journey Over the Rainbow. I spent some time healing in Munchkinland before I put on my Big Girl shoes and danced my way here: The Emerald City.

Green always *has* been my favorite color.

There are teenagers here aplenty, but we fly our zombie turtle flag and paint macaroni and raid books out of car trunks. I’ve hung up my purple rollers and pom-poms and tagged along with my tall misfit crew to Dart League Night.

I’m not on the team, of course, but I get to cheer, and give shoulder massages, and play a few games during practice. It’s been a long time since Dave Buchert’s basement but I don’t suck too badly…not like they’d suddenly stop liking me even if I did.

The music’s not as loud here as it is at the rink, and I’ve made some new friends, which is nice. Heck, I almost feel like a grown up! (she said, as she propped her slippers up under the bar table and sipped her Diet Coke full of cherries…)

I think I like this new City. I may stick around for a while…

I love you! I'm SO SO SO happy that you're here, and that you're the unofficial good luck charm for our dart team. XOXOXO

So, where exactly are you now? Am I to understand that you have left western PA (without ever dropping by to visit Valerie or myself)?

I was in southeast PA, and now I'm in VA...though I drive back every other weekend so I'm kind of living in both places.

I was thinking about dropping in on Ravencon...is that your name there on the guest list?

but... but... but.. I'm in southeast PA (aka the greater Philadelphia area). You should come buy for dinner! Heck, for that matter, you might even want to come to the writers' group I'm in, a small but solid foursome that's been together for years (and one of our peeps drives up from Alexandria, VA to come to the sessions!).

And yes, I'm finally dropping in on Ravencon. It will be my first time at a convention (not counting Klingon gigs) that far south.
