modernevil: Podcast episodes for tomorrow are ready to go. Next weeks', too - I'm going to be at #TOC, so I got them done early.

modernevil: @evo_terra Wait - Am I going to be seeing *you* at #ToC? Man, if that's the case I don't know if I'm excited to go any more... :p

evo_terra: @modernevil Nope. I'm not going to #ToC this time around. Would love to, but it ain't in the cards.

modernevil: Morning. Don't feel like crap, so that's better than average, lately. Church, soon, then "getting ready" for #ToC tonight.

modernevil: Packed for #ToC - going to head to the airport WAY early & try (standby) to get on an earlier flight. Tomorrow is a travel day.
