I'm awaiting photos from Tam's pal. Shermlock Shomes got his back already -- go see! Bonus: you not only get to see all the kewl kids, you'll see my famous "I, too will stand against Tarquin!" gesture. (Holy howlin' cow, the Tiber is way colder than you'd'a thunk! And that Horatius? Total hunk).
December with her various and sundry assorted holidays* is bearin' down fast and busy, so speak up now: what weekend would work for you for the December Indy Blogmeet?
* You know what? I'm a-gonna say "Happy Holidays," and here's why: pretty much everyone from everyplace has got some darned kind of Winter solstice holiday, plus there are at least two religious holidays that by Divine plan or pure chance (take your own pick), fall on or near the same date and the civil calender clicks over about the same time. I don't know how many of 'em you celebrate or in what fashion and rather than leave yours out or insult the tradition and significance of it with my heathen mispronunciation and misapprehension, I'm just gonna use the generic term. I'm not multicultural, I'm too lazy to look up all about your particular December day or days but nowhere near mean enough to just ignore it. If you have a problem with that, go find somebody else to wish you a happy Woodchuck-Hampering Day or whatever blame thing it is you do, okay? 'Cos I tried but I've kinda got my own strange alien festivities to do: we get to torture a tree! Heheheheh. Also, there will be gifts.
