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.

Oh, neat! We were, at first, going to go out for Will's birthday, but he wants to do the Perk thing. So I don't have to miss out on meeting the soupytwist.

Oh, it makes me happy that Will "wants to do the Perk thing"! I wasn't sure if he has been coming because he particularly enjoys it, or simply because you do. I mean . . . eh, you know what I mean.

And I'm glad that you'll be there tonight. I like to show off my friends.

I'm excited. You talk her up, man, and I've enjoyed reading the posts of hers that I've read. Mostly, I wish I'd found something to give Will for his birthday besides dinner at Perk. I should've gone to Takoma Park, but I needed something from the mall, so I tried to kill two birds with one stone, and it didn't work out too well. :\

Well, damn. There's a salon in Takoma Park that carries my hair care line.

Oh dear. Now you just need a time-telephone. So you can call the past and tell yourself to go to Takoma Park instead of the mall.

That's a good idea, right?

Hm . . . well, if you want to give him a catalog of rentals in ocean city . . . or a couple of toffee almond hershey's kisses . . . I could help you out. But I think dinner is a better gift than either of those, really. Maybe I'll bring him a catalog and a piece of chocolate.
