Well crap. I had a post written for today about my friend (formerly field hockey coach and dorm parent) who is supposed to be arriving in Zihua today, but I just got an email from her that she might not be able to come. (I'm writing this Wednesday afternoon.)
True, we're in DF right now so it's not like I'd be there to great her at the airport anyway, but I've really been looking forward to seeing her. Also, my mom should be halfway through proofreading my MS right now, and that means I'll have a little time to play next week.
What makes this even sadder is Erica Orloff's Freudian Slip -- the book I won a couple weeks ago -- just arrived at my friend's house. She planned to play courier to avoid high shipping costs, and now it might not get here. (Also sad is a certain movie she bought for me, but I suppose I'll live without it... even though I've really been looking to it. Drooling, in fact.)
There's a chance she'll still come but I may not know until I return to Zihua Monday night. Cross your fingers for me!
(I may not get to the comments until Monday night or Tuesday morning, but feel free to discuss amongst yourselves.)
