Night-Duty Nurse

I received a special treat in the mail, the inspiration behind this volley in a Layer Tennis match
between myself and the formidable Shaun Inman.

Thank you Grettir!

And if you need to know what this pulp title was about, the blurb is available on his site, Tiny Pineapple.

I thought things were getting blurry, and the optometrist agreed that my prescription could use an adjustment.
Thing is, I could either get bifocals, or simply remove my glasses when using the computer — which is confusing, but works.

Thanks to modern technologies, I’m more in touch with old friends than ever before.
I dig this, because I’m not good with phone calls and holiday cards.
So when I heard my friend Gretchen had her first child, I zipped down to say howdy.
She and Sean had a healthy baby boy.

Tina Roth Eisenberg

This week marked the first time I got to chat with SwissMiss proper.
I feel like she’s an old friend after years of emailing and linking,
but it was sweet to finally wave at each other and hear her accent, even virtually.

She invited me to sit in through videoconference on one of the Creative Mornings she
helps organize up in NYC. Extra bonus? The speaker today was Armin Vit who has
established some of my favorite destinations online.
