So I'm back.

You may have gathered. The trip was a minor disaster. My flight to Chicago made the news, and not in a good way. I was almost two hours late to Whisky Fest. My hotel room was...substandard, relative to past accomodations. (Though the concierge was great.) Ayana fell mysteriously ill on the second day. Divine M's computer was fried and she had to have it repaired, so she couldn't come until day three. Of four. Mr. C. got stuck in Baltimore until day three, too. Even still, I had the best time. Shas and 'Yana were super hostesses/crime partners, and it was great meeting Shas' friends Contr'y G, M and her hubby T. (Rob, thanks for putting in an all-too-brief appearance, as well. Next time, partner. Next time you betta hang. And stop comparing me to Thulsa Doom. Or don't. It's all good.) It was so good to see Divine and Mr. C again. And all the old haunts (okay, Cafe Bernard and Johnny O'Hagan's) feel more like home every time I go. I'm starting to understand the lay of the land. I know where I want to live. I'll really enjoy New York City for as long as I'm here, but I'll still be moving on before the year is out. I love Chicago.

Hi Sid, Was tons of fun, tho too brief you're right; couldn't be helped. Don't worry tho, I know there's going to be more drunktasticness abounding here abouts when you're here next.

Sorry I missed ya Sid, but I think that I'm off my drinky drinks for a bit. Glad to hear you had a good time. We've got to get together again to wreak some havoc.
