Lisa telephoned me while I was sitting in the Masquerade with my phone turned off. She left a message saying, "Tell everyone she wishes she could have been at Costume-Con, but instead I went to the Oregon Electric Railway Museum and spent eight hours working on the railroad. I'm very tired." I'll bet she is. But I'm glad to hear she got out this weekend. The terrible tinnitus she has been fighting has kept her from sleeping a lot, but it comes and goes, and sometimes she's free of the sound for long enough to let her sleep, and therefore can get out and do other things. Tinnitus is a really terrible difficult thing to deal with when there is no obvious cause.
