- visitations from demon children or Old Scratch

DID include
- wonderful conversation about our kids, D&D, our kids & D&D, politics, camping, Arkham Horror, and numerous other topics.
- great dinner at a locally-owned New American cuisine restaurant.

Thank you, Chris and Wendy, for your hospitality and pleasant company!

On our way to the hotel Wendy asked, "Who are we meeting again?"

"Rob—Sinister Dexter—he used to have the Mr. Peabody avatar—"

"Oh!" she exclaimed, "I know who that is." Then, as I pulled us into the passenger loading circle, "How will you know who he is?"

"Well, I told him what the truck looked like, but I'm guessing it's that guy over there in the 'Rebel Scum' t-shirt."

The first thing everyone should know about Rob is that he gets into cars with strangers he met on the Internet.

Dinner was in fact lovely, and no one said "hyperbole" or "paradigm", though if they had it would have been used in a hyperboliclly ironic sense. I wanted to say "riparian" but it got snagged in the Seven-Second Delay since it was going to be used as a simile with an expletive tacked on the end of it.

And like a weird small town we got to gossip about various Chit Chat members we've met, as well as the terrible secret of Old Man Wiles...

It was very cool meeting you and we enjoyed the exceptionally pleasant evening that came of it. Of course, only now does it occur to me that we should have discussed noted futurist Harlan Ellison.

Looks like we'll have to save that for next time!

I think we all really wanted to use that word, but any time anyone got close to uttering it everyone else gave them The Look and they turned it into "enkindled" instead.

No plan to be heading your direction, but San Diego is a great place to visit.

I will come down that direction soon. I just need to get settling into LA more before i start travel. It would be great to meet the two of you.
