The weekend that was, the week that's coming [Jul. 14th, 2008|10:54 am]
[Current Mood |cheerfulcheerful]

Man, I am completely chewed up, just covered in bites. It was worth it, though.

I haven't experienced mosquitoes and no-see-ums the likes of those I encountered in Michigan since I lived in Alaska. My ankles and the backs of my arms are chewed up. We won't even talk about my shoulders and neck. Who knew you guys were host to so many critters that take delight in biting the daylights out of me?

It's one of the things you never see in movies: the heroine and her True Love come together in the misty dawn and stand in a lush green landscape - and neither of them is swatting at the bugs hovering around them.

All that aside, it was a lovely weekend in Michigan. I was kindly hosted by Steve (delosd), who has the perfect place for me to crash: he, too, is allergic to animals so his house is dander-free. I got to have dinner with him and dawnwolf Thursday night, then spend Friday hanging out with good friends, and Saturday I got to see even more of them at aeila's graduation party. Both these events involved many LJ people, to whom I am just not going to link for the sake of readability. But it was wonderful seeing all of you.

On at least a couple occasions, Steve remarked to others that Ferrett's and my social schedule was something amazing. I demurred at the notion: we don't have that much going on. And, honestly, on Thursday last when I arrived there, I really didn't have much going on. But another friend to whom I suggested getting together some night this week, since it was mostly empty, texted me this morning asking when we can get together.


Turns out that every night this week had somehow filled up. She's penciled in for Friday, pending a check of her calendar.

Okay, so yeah. We are blessed with many good friends and plenty going on.

But I only have one night scheduled for next week!

Just now, at least....

I haven't lived in Michigan since 1981 and I still remember the mosquitoes.

My cousins live in Grand Rapids, and they once said the mosquitos often carry off small children...
