Liz is trying to get me hooked on Forgotten Realms, so since I don't know anyone I can actually play with, I'm in search of books. Specifically, the first book of the Avatar series, which seems to be this thingy.

First place I checked was B&N. Neither the close one nor the slightly-farther-but-much-larger one has it (although the latter has books three and four). The OC public library system has a copy, but it's basically on the other side of the county...and I'd probably have to take a toll road to get to it...

Meh.

Well, tonight I saw Dad off as he left for Florida.

I haven't talked about this before tonight, because until this morning there wasn't even a hint that it might happen. We have some family in Florida--Dad's uncle and aunt. Now, it's worth noting that Dad's father, the youngest of three, was about fifty when Dad was born...you can imagine how old this Florida family is.

Well, we found out this morning that Dad's uncle (his namesake, incidentally) is on his death bed. He's in the hospital with breathing problems, and isn't expected to live for more than a few days. Hence, much of today was a mad scramble to get plane tickets, a car, and a hotel for Dad for up to a week in Miami.

My brother's in San Francisco on a chorus trip, and my sister is sleeping over. With Dad gone, it makes for an empty house...

Mom went to bed... *sighs* I dunno. I don't usually get like this. I'm usually fine when I'm alone...

Oh, a prototype of my bandwidth limiter widget is now running on Filespace. Let me know if you have any trouble, minna.

Anyway, another song from KROQ's playlist...
