Oh, yeah. There was this time I was pinned down by this guy that played left tackle for varsity... Well, at least he used to before he was a vampire... Anyway, he had this really, really thick neck, and all I had was a little, little Exact-O knife ... You're not loving this story.

Plan what to do, what to wear (you can never go wrong with a corset), and get ready for the next BuffistaCon.

Every now and then, I think I might actually be a little odd.

Javachik, oh my gosh, I hope you're feeling better and can get home soon!

Pix, thanks for letting us know!

Thank you Pix for letting us know what's going on and for pointing us here.

Javachik, all the love in the world. I hope your recovery is swift as possible and you are able to return home soon. I'm so sorry this happened on your vacation in particular, and that it happened at all. I wish I was able to be the support for you right now as you have been for me since I've been diagnosed. Sending you all the health ~ma.

Thank you Zen! I have been meaning to update here. I'm in the hospital for round 4 of chemo for at least the next few days, so I hope to do just that while I'm here.

Why isn't everyone pelting me with JOY, dammit? - Zenkitty

Java, I'm so sorry to hear you've been so effectively sidelined - and on your lovely vacay too! I wish you plenty of upper-respiratory-ma, and hope you're back adventuring so soon!

amyth, so good to see you as well! Best of luck with this chemo round! Hope you bounce back easily and are home soon!

Hey all, Javachik and I are driving down for AmyPreble's memorial service this weekend. We'd love to meet up with any Buffistas who are also there. Probably too tired after the drive on Friday, but we're both free after the service for lunch or whatever. (cross posted to Beep Me)

That's the pain / That cuts a straight line down through the heart / We call it love

I really wish I could go, but we get back from our road trip tomorrow, and I'm not up for doing another long drive so soon, nor am I crazy about the idea of getting right on an airplane either. I feel like I've maxed out my risk budget for the next few weeks at least. I don't know, now I'm sort of second-guessing myself, but I think staying home is the right call. I'm really sorry to miss it, though, and to miss seeing Buffistas.

Ah that’s a bummer, Kate, but understandable. We will miss you.
