- It looks like Jeff and I are going to be in Seattle somewhere during the time of June 14th to June 20th-ish. He is buying a truck from his mom, and we're going out to pick it up (hey seattlejo, check your email.) The standard disclaimer applies: I am going to try to see as much of everyone as possible, but we're only going to have a few days, and we have some stuff we need to take care of. So. :) The only thing on my must do list is to visit Market Spice (though I won't object to getting to eat at Cedar's, either. :) )
- It looks like I'm going make good on my threats of the last couple of years and come to GenCon this year. I can see folks I want to see when they're not gaming (people have to eat sometime, right) and I'm sure I can entertain myself in Indy when they're gaming. It's the weekend before school starts, so it'll be a good weekend to run away and have some fun. Woot. :)
All of this leads up to, I think I'm looking to replace my beloved red LL Bean bookbag. Ten years have left the waterproofing shot, there are holes in the bag, it has no structure, which is bad for my back, blah blah blah. I specifically want a laptop bookbag, not an over the shoulder laptop bag, since I anticipate hauling the laptop back and forth to school more this fall than I do now. Anyone have a favorite bag to recommend? Right now, I'm leaning towards this or this (both of which have good reviews) but am open to suggestions. (And I'm glad I didn't order one yesterday, because they're both cheaper today.) I specifically want a laptop bookbag, and something with multiple compartments, be they small or large, would be nice.
