my traveling companions are ghosts and empty sockets

Yes, I am going back to the US for a visit this week (watch this space). Almost but not quite in anxiety mode about traveling--at the moment it comes and goes. I'm hoping I'll be able to relax and do some reading and some writing (two different blog posts are in the works but unfinished), though I may just stick my head in the sand and enjoy not having quite as much stress.

Summer's finally hit Glasgow, insomuch as it ever really does by my standards; as always there has been #tapsaff and lots of folk complaining about how hot it is every time it hits 20 degrees Celsius (68 F). It is, I will concede, humid as fuck, but as depicted on Instagram, I tend to be jetting around in a jacket when everyone else has wee camisoles on. MKE will be a delight, even if it rains, because warm.

Fleetwood Mac were a delight, though while I was there I felt a tad underwhelmed, then realised I was feeling underwhelmed because it was like The Dance but right there in front of me in real life and then I got wicked excited again. In fact, every time I realise I have seen them all together and they don't hate each other and are having fun, I have a moment.

Project Paige and Matt Watch DS9 is continuing on into S2. In a way, I'm glad I'm watching it first now, because I feel like there's a lot of stuff I'd have missed when I was younger, and a lot of stuff still seems so damn relevant. It is, not gonna lie, better television than TNG in general, but I still love my TNG crew. I just wish there was more TNG that was like DS9.

To sum up: FEELS.

Like eight months later I still get a frisson of glee when I think back to seeing FM. It was just such a delight to see them ALL! And yes, having fun! I'm so glad you got to see them too. Totally serious about the next #wootup taking place over there if there is a chance.

I really need to re/watch DS9 - I started watching it when it aired, midway through the run, and quit before the end, but I would like to go through it again. If only it were on Canadian netflix! Sigh.

Safe and happy travels x

I know, right?!? It's sad when bands re-form without some members because some folks don't get along. Fortunately, some people manage to grow up and sort things out.
