Catching up...

So yeah, dinner was a 1 and we had guests, but it was a good time. Most conversation was about James Bond, and things that might tangentially relate to that, like Skippy's List.

Joined a pool league, so my Tuesday nights are spoken for now.

jazz007 and I are going to Fencon, we've finally arranged. That is, I called the hotel today and made the reservation. Memberships at the door, I suppose. Hope I'll see many of you there. Also Leslie Fish & Steve Stirling as GoH's, so should be fun.

Nothing else of importance that I can think of. Dad's birthday was postponed until Thursday.
