Anyways, you are all now forewarned so anyone who needs to come up with an emergency reason for being out of the area can plan ahead for that ;). I'd de psyched to meet up with any/all Boston area friends and I'll be in touch with folks to see when visiting / hanging out would be good. Anyone who has specific ideas and/or preferences should let me know. I've never been much for booking every minute of my trips, but there are enough people in the area that I want to hang out with that the week will be reasonably busy (definitely a welcome state of affairs).
So, yeah. Woo-hoo.
