Happy birthday to redcountess. It's going to be an interesting year as your household increases in size. Here's hoping it all brings great happiness, even if there will be disrupted sleep, noise and messiness.

And on a more somber note - today, I remember my untwin davidstewart. This is the first 3rd February that you been gone. Fandom misses you, and will keep on missing you. Tonight, I will raise a glass to you, sad in the knowledge that this year you won't be doing so as well.

We never manage get that joint meal, did we? Perhaps we should try to plan something for next year.

HB 2 U!

Yes, I though of poor old David today. I'm hoping to hold a panel in his memory at P-CON in a few weeks.

I hope you do.

It was only relatively late that we discovered the coincidence. It's a bit of what Kurt Vonnegut would call a “false karass” (or at least, his Bokonists would), but even so, that David was then diagnosed with his final illness is a reminder to me of my own probable mortality, and a good reason for me giving up smoking, losing weight, and doing more exercise. It is my firm intention to be healthier on my fiftieth than I was on my fortieth. So far, that is going to be the case.
