I had a lovely long weekend in Toronto visiting with friends and the travel snafu at the end of my trip gave me an extra day there, so I can't complain. We took hikes, went horseback riding, and ate and drank way too much. I didn't have a ticket to the Con, but I did go to karaoke, which was fun. I also got to watch the Seahawks/Cowboys game with a Cowboys fan. Oh, joy. At least she was as surprised as I was at the final score.

Living in Northern California, I don't get to see much fall foliage, so the woods in Toronto were a delight to the eyes.

P.S. I saw Richard and Rob in the customs/immigration line at the Toronto airport. I just smiled and nodded and didn't bug them. It was way too early in the morning to go all fangirl on them. :D

I am in lovely Barcelona and this morning delivered, I believe, two coherent talks related to MOOCs. Pretty good considering I woke up at 3am and could not get back to sleep. Tomorrow I am off to Rome where I will see Jason Manns in concert and hope to somehow figure out how to see the last two eps of SPN. Otherwise it is going to be a while before I can get back to reading LJ and twitter without fear of spoilers.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks!

I have been home about a week and I have still not made it through my LJ inbox (I track a lot of people). It has been a very eventful few weeks and I have a lot to write about, but I need to find some time.

Thanks to those who sent birthday wishes. I would like to thank you by name, but without thinking I deleted most of the messages and can't remember everyone who wrote to me. Boo. Just know that I really appreciate it.

While I was in Europe I borrowed from Verizon a phone with global capabilities and its camera had some special features. Here is one cool picture from Goring-on-Thames, where one of my (distant) cousins lives. So beautiful. I would love to live there.
