Diary #240

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’m leaving for Seattle a week from tomorrow, which means I’m moving into full-blown headless chicken mode pretty soon.  I have Jae to thank for my not having hit it yet; though I haven’t even started packing yet she keeps mentioning things she has gotten for me up there, from tea to my brand of shampoo to a computer to a bathrobe to…you get the picture.  Honestly, if I were flying straight there instead of wandering about the country for a week (including several days in Las Vegas), I’d be tempted just to throw a few dresses in my overnight bag and call it good.  Alas, that is not to be; I have to eventually start packing, though I suppose Sunday will be soon enough.  Until then I’ve got to take care of a number of things around here I don’t want to stick Grace with, plus blog work to get ahead on and a book to organize (the rough draft is complete and formatted, and I’m editing it now).  It’s important that I get as much ahead as possible, because Savannah Sly has already said she’s going to rope me into whatever activism she can up there (and with her, that might not be merely a metaphor).

Anyhow, there’s a way you can lessen my stress if you like; moves are expensive, and I’ve totally drained my war chest.  So if you can spare it, could you do a donation for me this week via PayPal?  Pretty please with sugar on top?  Just send it to maggiemcneill@earthlink.net and I’ll send you a thank-you note and add you to my subscriber list; every so often I’ll send out a special gift to everyone on it, and you’ll be there!
