Don't you want to hear my banjo symphony?

A year and a half or so ago I was thinking of buying an electric banjo, I posted about it here and y'alls said "hell no, buy a pinball machine instead" which turned out to be a good thing. I worked on writing a play for most of the day and then trillian_stars and I watched a couple episodes of Monk and began a grand pinball tournament.

Roswell helped out, of course

after it became obvious that trillian_stars was going to slaughter me, Roswell turned away rather than watch my pathetic scores.

I realized lately that the way to bluff your way through a conversation with any science fiction author is simply to have a working knowledge of George Macdonald Frasier's Flashman novels, so trillian_stars has been reading the first one to me while we lay in front of the fireplace. Roswell again helped out....

Good luck to everybody in Washington DC this morning. Hug the person next to you for shared bodily warmth.
