peem! (That's "meep" backwards...)

Been having a very surreal couple of days with Ryan / hoopycat - lots of long conversations, and the kind of riffing off each other's sentences that people can do in person but that doesn't really work well on the net, where you can't see tone of voice or body language unless you already know the person really well. Topics of conversation included liquid nitrogen, whether Jones' Soda's "Fufu Berry Soda" was transparent or translucent (along with a complete letter that Ryan was considering sending them), music, cats, pasta sauce, cute spiky-haired boys, and other things that I really wanted to make into lj entries at the time but which I can't remember in enough detail now to write down (typical). Ryan is really fucking special, and Dawn and Renée are lucky to have him.

If I wasn't already certain of this by the way he managed to cope with me having a complete emotional meltdown yesterday, today there was an ice storm in Atlanta, and my flight got cancelled. Having already got up at 5 am to drive me to the airport, he decided to drive me to Boston instead. That's 6 hours in each direction, people. I am totally and utterly beyond touched, I'm all the way into completely overwhelmed.

Now feeling somewhat melancholy, because my time in the US is almost over, and there are still tons of people here (and in Canada) I really want to see and spend some/more time with, but at the same time I really need to get home, to my own bed and usual routine. In this day and age when we have such great communication and it's possible for a sad geek to find other people like her all over the world, is the world bigger or smaller? I'm certainly glad to have found so many other people like me, but a couple of days every couple of years with them just isn't enough. I need that transporter invented, damnit.

alt.polycon 13? You betcha. Along with San Francisco and Seattle, and maybe a few other bits if they fit in with my plans. Anyone taking Paypal registrations, kightp?
