I guess I am just totally predictable. When I went down to M&Cs tonight, I announced the news of the beautiful new icon I made (it's from the Star Wars holiday special) and Eleanor said, "Let me guess. You're going to put a picture of Admiral Ackbar by it."
I just sort of stared at her as though she were psychic. Turns out I'm just predictable.
I had a really long, wonderful conversation with Marjorie tonight after M&Cs. We actually stayed down in the dining hall until close to midnight. The results are, I'm going to be reading a lot of children's books this summer.
And, a correction to my Ackbar fiction: in looking up pictures of the Admiral tonight, I learned that his planet is actually called Mon Calamari. Which really isn't much better than Calamari. In fact, "calamari world" is very silly. But it is not my place to judge.
