It has now been determined that Spooky and I shall depart Atlanta on June 22nd, so that she can be at her parents on her birthday. I think it will be a sleeper car, and maybe we'll even sleep. A shame we'll have to change trains in D.C.
I'm pretty sure that I'm about to cease composing these entries in Blogger and begin composing them in LJ, instead. It's just more amenable to my mentality (that sounds a lot better than "user friendly"), and it's a lot easier to make corrections in LJ, which means there will be fewer typos in the Blogger copy, as well, since I usually find most of my mistakes after I post an entry.
