Vampire novel

It was an unusually active and social day. I started with my annual visit to the dermatologist, who froze off all sorts of little patches on my neck and chest. Of course, as soon as I got back to my office, a colleague in California called me into a video iChat. I informed him that I was doing research for a vampire novel.

Hutch came by and we went out for lunch at the Hi Life in Ballard. (After I disguised all the marks on my neck using a silk scarf.) The food was pretty good, the waitress rather spacey, and the adjoining table had a woman with an 18-month-old grandchild who managed to grab and throw her cell phone under our table two or three times.

After work I had my annual eye exam, including the part where they dilate your eyes. I drove home with all the traffic signals and street lights sparkling like Christmas decorations. Zorg was in his office hooking up his second 23" monitor and chortling.
