In which I am teh lame

I'm back from Kzoo and I had a really lovely time. But I also completely crashed by the end of it and couldn't bring myself to make it to the dance. My headache was just too raging and my energy way too low. So I played Trivial Pursuit on my phone with The General in our hotel room.

That's reason #1 why I am teh lame.

Reason #2: I completely forgot about the party for Bonnie Wheeler. Forgot to RSVP. Forgot to go. Forgot it even existed, until I read about it on blogs today. The invitation is still sitting on my desk here in Rust Belt, under a pile of other stuff I've neglected this semester. D'oh!

My excuse for my lameness is in the post two below this one. It's hard to be on top of social things when you're barely on top of all the rest.

But I have to say, I'm in a much better mood post-Kzoo than I was pre-Kzoo, thanks to all of you whose company I shared this weekend, however briefly!

It was good to see you, no matter how briefly. And you missed an extraordinary dance.

I don't think I would have enjoyed it; the headache was pretty bad (which is weird for me; I'm not usually prone to them). But I'm glad for everyone else that it was a good one.

I hope you're not implying that The General was ALSO lame for playing trivial pursuit... lameness just won't stick to her. Your fav. philologist and I were talking about you yesterday, wishing you well. -- TJO'D.

No, she had a much better excuse. I was simply lame. Say hi to my fave philologist!
