...Get the livejournal screennames of all the awesome people I met at FotL. Dur. I sure do feel smart. If I met you over the weekend and you chance to run across this journal, please comment here, so I'll make sure to friend you.

Other, mildly less dorky, things that happened today:

I've officially placed my first BPAL lab order. Does this count as a virginity loss of some sort? Or does it not count as anything till I actually get my stuff, which may take a month, for all I know?

I've got a loverly pile of new books from the library. More of the Vorkosigan Saga, plus Terry Pratchett's Guards! Guards!. No, I actually haven't read the latter before. Yes, I suck.

Note to self: BPAL gets pretty people to flirt with me. This gorgeous Indian guy with square-rim glasses told me I smelled really nice, while I was at the library. He was in the checkout line right after me, so sadly I didn't get to talk to him much. Sad face.

The scent in question? Hungry Ghost Moon. Please, please, please let Beth and co release that one again!

I've spent a fabulous all day yesterday and this morning with [ profile] mirrored_echo, knocking about Park Street. Together, we learned that Macy's prices have gone up beyond the pale (though she managed to find a red dress that was both very pretty and reasonably priced. Dress envy!) We also had dinner at the Thai place in Belmont I'm forgetting the name of - and that's a shame, because the food was mighty tasty and the portions just right.

Then, I woke up this morning with unholy cramps, so bad I had to miss today's physical therapy. Guess you have to take the bad with the good. Either way, I think I'm going to take it easy for the rest of the week. Do some reading; gather energy for The Phoenix Flap on Saturday; chill out in general.

Speaking of chilling out - I feel like I've guzzled a gallon of iced tea today alone. So hot and thirsty! ...I think I need more iced tea.

I got to meet [ profile] shadesong! And she's every bit as shiny in real life as she is on lj - one of those people with insane charisma, combined with the ability to put you completely at ease. I'm full of squee now.

For those of you who've never been to the Deluxe Town Diner in Watertown, I highly recommend it. Their sweet potato pancakes are to die for! I'd be currently munching on the leftovers, but my parents stole 'em.

I finally got the story behind Shayara, and now I cannot wait for the comic to go live. I really shouldn't be falling this hard for the characters, since a) I haven't met them yet, per se, and b) there are no survival guarantees for any of them, but the love seems to be happening anyway, from listening to 'song talk about them. Darnit.

As for the original reason for our meetup... *drumroll*

No luck with the BPALs today, but meeting 'song made it so worth it.
