. . . in which the Katies are coming! The Katies are coming!

OK, just one Katie, but I'd say that's just the right amount. Today is soupytwist day! She's arriving by bus from New York this afternoon- being dropped off, however, at a gas station in the northeast part of Baltimore City. Considering that I work considerably southwest of the city, and that by the time I get off work (1.5 hours after she arrives), rush hour will be in full effect, I have imposed my will. Rather, I've made a suggestion that has been accepted. Seeing as I don't want Katie to have to wait for god knows how many hours until I can get to her (and I admit that I also don't want to have to drive twice through the city at that time of day), I've requested that a taxi be pulled into the equation. I'll pay for that, because it's my own reluctance that is adding this extra complication. So after work, I can pick her up from the convenient-and-rather-more-comfortable-than-a-gas-station public library, we can swing by my house long enough for me to change clothes, and then we can head down to open mic.

This would all be a lot easier if I had been working here long enough to take vacation days. I could leave early and be at the stop when the bus arrives, and beat the traffic as well. Alas, this is not a perfect world. I guess I can only hope that this will work out with a minimum of (extra) difficulty.

In case you couldn't tell, I'm a worrier. If there's gonna be a plan, I stress until all the details are worked out.

But still! Excited! Katie! There shall be fun.
