The second party was the NANOWRIMO KICK-OFF PARTY. (Guys, guys, guys, NaNoWriMo starts in LESS THAN TWO DAYS. DO YOU KNOW HOW NOT READY I AM???) OH, I didn't even TELL YOU about the amazing AlphaSmart miracle that happened! I will in a second. Anyway, at the kickoff party, I met realdartagnan of Hufflepuff fame. Turns out he sucks in person just as much as he does online, THAT TOTALLY FIGURES. GEEZ. And I discovered that of my mottled memories of Crystal's Pizza, I only remember TWO ROOMS intensly vividly, and the rest is completely backwards and messed up. Which made it very odd to see those two rooms, exactly as I remembered them, thrown in with the convoluded rest of the place that did not match my memory AT ALL. It was like being in a dream where you KNOW you are in a place, but it's all rearranged and stuff. WEIRD. Weird but COOL.
THE ALPHASMART MIRACLE!
So, Neo provided NaNoWriMo 25 AlphaSmarts to their laptop loaner program, and, long story incredibly short, I GOT ONE. FO' FREE. Worry not, I'm still doing your stupid dares, and all the money that was donated for the AlphaSmart has been re-donated to kitty surgery for opaleyes's buddy's kitty with a busted shoulder or something. LOVE FOR THE KITTIES, it's all for a good cause, bless all of you who donated, good karma will be bestowed upon you forever!
The rest of you?
