Hopefully...

...Storm, Gab, Lyd, Jim, & John are right now en route to Newark, where they'll catch a flight to Manchester later today. Hopefully anyway!

All of them wound up stuck here a full extra day, due to a snafu caused by the airline itself and then the stupid airport security procedures. Their luggage was sent on to Philadelphia while they were stranded here after being forced to miss a flight.

I did my best to make the extra day comfortable. They got MARTA back to my place, and then Paul Cashman and nevercadabera turned up so we could make a group trip to Jade Palace in Cobb County. Predictably we gorged ourselves :) On the way back in Bruce's car, we started singing Bowie stuff, including Labryrinth stuff, and so when we got back we actually watched my Labyrinth DVD. Caleb and Daniel were over for that as well and Bruce and Paul stayed on.

Finally everybody was ready for bed. Storm & Jim went home with Caleb to go sleep on his futon, while I put Jon, Lyd & Gab up in my bedroom. I slept on the air mattress. Aside from a huge burst of hysterical laughter as we were falling asleep, the evening was uneventful.

Today once everybody was awake I prep'd bagels and tea, then served as guide to the airport. Luggage and flight to Newark were sorted. They got tagged again for a "special" security inspection but I watched them make it through so they probably are on their way to Newark now.

ADDENDUM - Continental's online flight tracking system is soooooo cool. It doesn't just show the plane left and it's ETA, it shows a map showing where the plane IS. Whoah. Hopefully, assuming the gang actually got on the plane (high probability) they are now over Virginia.

Meanwhile, sh*t am behind on stuff. OMG, it is so not funny

Buried

There are about 140 more emails in my inbox than there usually are / should be. Jeez, am I screwed. There must like like 20 people pissed off at my "lack of response" to them over the past week. Not good at all but what the hell can I do except slowly attempted to catch up?!

D*C Pics 3 - Yours Truly

Finally, some documentation of my outfits, which changed frequently:

I can't quite remember all the costume changes (and towards the end, get days confused) but here is something close to right.

Friday: 1) sloppy black outfit morning, 2) more "hippy" outfit for L5P, 3) crazy pink/black/white outfit with crucifix barrettes & funky tights.

Saturday: 1) elegant velvet/silk more gothic type outfit for first-half of day, 2) spunky, revealing black outfit with black bob wig for second half of day.

Sunday: 1) punky outfit with red & white polyester pants, tank top & red-tipped spiked hair for second half of day.

Monday: 1) white-blond wig & sort of gothy velvet & silk outfit for first-half of day, later took off the wig.

Amazing Personages of D*C

It's probably going to take me days to post and/or fully process all that happened these past few days, but one thing that hits me right away is the number of really cool people I met and hung out with, many of whom I'd never met. I think I've made some new friends!

Among the guests I got to know a lot better:

I also met a couple of "old" friends I've only known online, like Deb & vaysh, plus a couple of other Wraeththu fans who came up to me briefly.
