Edit: Michele says i'll pick up this stuff (the new system) easily so i shouldn't worry about missing those training days (and it's not like those are the only days i'll have to learn the new system before i have to actually use it with the public) and i shouldn't let it keep me from my friends. So arriving in NYC Thursday and leaving Tuesday? How long do you all wanna put up with me? Be honest.
Edit the second: I think we have already established that i am a big fan of having a Plan. So if anyone (particularly those i'm visiting) has suggestions for stuff i should do while in NYC, feel free to suggest. (I wanna go back to the Met to see William -- hmm, and this looks interesting -- and maybe go to the MoMA, but other than that i'm open to suggestions.) Might be nice to meet some of y'all's mythical friends but i'll settle for just hanging out with offbalance and quasisonic and oatmilk and antheia (though even just hanging out, plans = good).
tranceballerina and lilithchilde both see June 28/29 as the best weekend to come visit me. How do you two feel about visiting the same weekend?
I wanted to visit laynamarya, but i'm not sure i'm going to be able to.
And Joe and Jonah, who may or may not be reading this, should call me so we can make plans.
And because everyone keeps asking me:
I leave for England on July 5 and return August 15.[Thoughts, comments, suggestions, signs from God, etc. about any of the above are welcome.]
August 24 i go back to Smith.
