Vanishing for lovely reasons

My thesis reading is a week from today, and I’m really nervous and excited. It’s going to be me and my adviser’s two other advisees, all fiction, and it should be a blast.

And the really awesome part is that my folks are coming into town for the reading and staying for a week! So, like when I go home to visit them, I may not be getting online all that often. So if there’s anything anyone needs from this Tuesday through the following Sunday, it’s probably easier to phone me. And after they go, I’ll definitely sweep through past LJ updates and see what y’all have been up to, but if there’s a gap between when you post and when I reply, that’s why.
