Tomorrow I will have been here a week, and I find myself thinking of this one or that one all the time as I go about my daily errands. It's rather nice, really. Rarely have I felt so at home on a message board. Probably never, in fact -- it was like walking into that little neighborhood hangout you've always meant to stop by, having seen the lights and heard the music from outside, and, on walking in, discovering it really is
full of fun and fascinating people.
Of course, it's also kind of like being hauled to the loony bin and finding out they were saving a bed for you.
