back from dominican

Jeff and I got back from our vacation yesterday. He got burnt a bit; I wore SPF45 the entire time and only got mildly singed on the last day on part of my back where I had been careless with the sunscreen. I've never been much of a "lie on the beach all day and bake" sort of person, so I brought a bunch of books and (*gasp) some work to do. The phone lines were a bit weird, though, so even though I had a laptop I was out of email touch most of the time. I'll have to make up for it this week, though...looks like it's going to take me a while to catch up.

Jodi and Alisa have got me hooked on Laurell Hamilton's vampire-mystery books. Plowed through two of them this past week, and Jodi's going to lend me the next four.

Karen Bertke asked me to post the following:

    Our Cincinnati based convention has been moved to a new hotel and our convention is only one month away...† The Blue Ash Hotel was doing renovations and their renovators torn the hotel to pieces without hope of getting it back together in time for our convention March 19-21st (can you say breech of contract?).† Could you put out a link on your page or a note on your blatherchat to get the news out? ††† MILLENNICON MINUS 2 will be held at the Regal Cincinnati at 5th & Elm (150 W. 5th St.) Cincinnati OH 45202.† Hotel prices remain $69.00/night, parking will be paid by the convention organizers.† See our updated webpage for more details.
