    * James_M lurks...

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?
