I didn't receive any email I LOVE YOU's except one from a coworker who emailed tech support (that'd be me and a couple other people) to say that he really loves us. In a platonic way. Really. Thanks, Pat; we love you, too.
I was glad to be working in a mostly Mac shop yesterday, that's for sure.

Have I mentioned that I'm on The Well now? I was once, ages ago. And I signed up again a couple of months ago, but never really found the time to log in regularly. I've been logging in and reading some conferences regularly so far this week, though. Good to see some folks there I know from GEnie, from other weblogs and websites, from sf fandom, etc.

I know I've mentioned Mike's Hard Lemonade here and elsewhere before. Last year, during the Winnipeg Folk Festival, I drank a lot of it. And I'm not usually a drinker, really.
Still, I was hooked.
But the drink didn't seem to be available in the US or at least not in Minnesota.
So I'm out doing last minute shopping before Minicon and I'm in the Sam's Club liquor store (egads) and lo, there was a great light and a heavenly chorus of angels singing. And yes, there were cases of Mike's Hard Lemonade.
Scientific experiments over the weekend revealed that the U.S. version of Mike's Hard Lemonade is a malt based beverage that contains 5.2% alcohol. Experimenters agree that in Canada it was a vodka based beverage that tasted a little bit better and packed more of a punch. Oh, well. Still good, but not quite the same.
