Just kidding! Actually what he did, even before he took his coat off was
tear into Baby Jinx' computer since part of the week-end plan was for us to try
and bring it up to 19th century technology.
We talked, we laughed, we watched bad (and good) vampire movies. James_M
worked on Baby Jinx' computer. We ate, we IRC'd, we laughed some more. James_M
worked some more. We shared a blood orange, we told each other our stories, we
web browsed and James_M continued to work on Jinxie's computer. Ericah and
Shroud went home to sleep about 2:00 am, we gathered together on Sunday morning
and started all over again, since we still had stories to tell and since James_M
still had work to do on Baby Jinx's computer. Oh, and we took a short break to
record the event for posterity on film. Wanna see?
