Well, it’s gonna be a busy week. Got a school function, gotta pack for ConFusion, gotta WAIT IS THAT ME IN THE STRANGER?

That is indeed me, along with a lot of other people who have moved to Seattle. I was pretty happy that my babbling about tacos, coffee, and parks got picked, and I was even happier to see the photo credit. The kid took that picture of me in front of the Gum Wall, one of Seattle’s most disgusting points of interest. Really, that place is vile, but I got a good picture out of it, so, what the hell.

If you’re tired of looking at the ads for pot shops and personal massages, and if you’re going to be in Novi, Michigan this weekend, you can see me in person at ConFusion! If I’m not at one of the panels listed below, I’ll either be at the bar or the Indian place in the gas station across the street. Come say and have some biryani.
