The USA revisited 
8th-Jun-2008 08:39 pm
Let me see..

I hadn't seen the USA for two and a half years. It seemed different: prettier, cheerier, and tastier. Fatter. And so American. The things that felt strange, changed, or normal is the topic of this month's home page article at my formal website:

It was great to see you! I'm sorry I felt unwell the night I saw you; I went to bed shortly after that. I think dress sizes have not changed; it's more likely that you did.

I was glad to see you, too. And I had a terrible cold and felt awful the whole convention, too, and spent Saturday evening in bed. At least I didn't get the WisContagion.

Dress sizes have changed, actually.

Sizes are slowly becoming larger in the US. I'm a little bigger, too, so it was a pleasant surprise to now be a 6.

That's really weird. I hadn't noticed changes within the last two years (although definitely in the last 20.)

I got WisCholera, and so did Shannon. He got it much worse than I did (which surprised the heck out of me). We were lucky to get it during the second half of the con, so we didn't have to travel while we were the most sick. Being in a dark hotel room all day is a reasonably pleasant way to spend the recovery time.
