I took Lovely Plumage out for a walk in public for the first time yesterday. It was treated nicely by the Nameless (filomancer, pointoforigin, Ef, and Ricardo), critted gently, and survived the experience.
Food was consumed. Deer were spotted. The toilet did not run backwards. No one was deathly allergic to the cats. All are signs of a successful crit meeting.
I urged filomancer to commit her thoughts about writing fiction to her LJ. They seemed penetrating at the time, but I had been up for 21 hours, and I fear they have skidded off my brain.
