How Do I Leave A Comment In Real Life?
The internet is a many-splendored thing. Every time I get used to a new thing I can do with it, I find something else it's good for. It turns out it's also good for (hold on to your hats) meeting nice people.

Torontopearl of Pearlies of Wisdom and a frequent commenter here spent four days in LA. She was coming out to celebrate the life and mourn the death of Ariel Avrech who passed away two years ago at the age of 22. Thanks to the hospitality of ball-and-chain and her mom, we had her stay and hang out with us when she wasn't with the Avrechs. She writes about her trip here. We all (Ralphie too) had a lot of fun getting to know her, and it's odd realizing that without the internet, even with mail and telegraphs, this would likely never have happened.

What she doesn't realize is that we're all going to show up unannounced on her Toronto doorstep one day, make ourselves at home, and refuse to leave.
The red carpet is waiting...the big spotlights are set up...but the Hollywood -- I mean Toronto -- sign is in the shop.

We're ready when you and the "Beans" are willing and able.

Oh, a slight correction: it's 2 years since Ariel Avrech passed away.
Torontopearl: Thanks. I fixed the error.
Also the "Pearlies of Wisdom" link leads right back to the coffeehouse...
D'oh! Thanks. fixed that too. Gotta stop posting right after sniffing glue.
I noticed early on what Ralphie pointed out. But I didn't want to say anything 'cause the joke was on you: I WAS GOING TO MOVE IN ONE DAY, MAKE MYSELF COMFORTABLE AND REFUSE TO LEAVE THE COFFEEHOUSE! You just led the way for me to do that. :)
You can still move in. I just don't recommend it. The food is awful.

By the way, has anyone seen Nomad?
Well, he's a Nomad! He's probably wandered away somewhere!
Irina: That's exactly what I'm worried about.
