"One day I woke up in Miami"

mood: sleeeeeepy

Hey, um, I won't be home this weekend. I'm writing from mid-roadtrip to the annual NASCO Institute event in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I just finished my driving shift - 5 hours straight! A personal record, at least in recent memory. I find myself (for this brief moment) in the exquisitely-named city of... Effingham, Illinois. Effingham! Say it with an exclamation point! "WTF? Effingham!" I just made them that new slogan. They are welcome to use it.

What the hell are you talking about, Trip?
I'm the board chairman of a nonprofit organization in Austin that exists to encourage expansion of cooperative housing options and operates Sasona Co-op in South Austin, a 17-member house that was previously a school. I have the tiniest room and I find it ideally cozy. We have the awesomest wooden playground in the tree-lined, spacious backyard.
