In which there are several Fiends

My flight from Chicago to Minneapolis was delayed by about 35 minutes, but on the plus side, when I arrived I was met not by one, but by two Fiends, Siri and Aleta. After getting me checked in at themotel we headed to the International House of Pancakes for supper, we talked, although having been awake for about 20 hours by that point my memories of exactly *wat*we talked about are a little hazy!

Siri and I then spent the day on thusday visiting Stillwater, including visiting Dairy Queen, which is no doubt commonplace to many, but had a slightly unreal feel to me because Dairy Queen is an esablishment which belongs in books about America, not in real life....We also found a secondhand book store and some ice cream (Maple Pecan....Mmmmmm)

And lots of sunshine. And we went into Wisconsin, mostly because It Was There. It seems a lot like Minnesota.

This evening we met more Fiends - El & her roommate, laserlady, Aleta and Gayle, for dinner, and belly dancing.

I should perhaps make clear that we were observers, not participants , in relation to the belly dancing. anything else would have required much more beer.

Did I mention I'm having fun?

I wish you could have been there, Sally; but we were certainly thinking about you. Really.
