It's official

...I'm going to spend the fall at the IMS. Got word this morning that my registration was confirmed. I'm still vaguely simmering with excitement.

Of course, a bunch of stuff could still happen to prevent me from going. Nevertheless. Woohoo!

I'm sorry, but that's some circle of hell or other.

Yeah, people keep saying that to me. I don't know why. I mean, I like me some friendly chatting; I enjoy connecting with folks through language; I also like words for their own sakes. But so much of ordinary verbal interaction is reducible to: "You're here, I'm here too, let's be good to each other." When you're at a place like IMS, you've already established that that's your intent.

And there are times when you want to stop narrating your life and start living it.
