Recent events have finally come to a head, and I'm going up to be with Stardust as her father passes and during the funeral - leaving in about two hours at this point. I'll probably be away from the forum and IRC for a while. Not sure how long, and to what extent. Things are really uncertain right now and I'm not entirely sure what I'm getting myself into. Never done this before.
We'll see how things turn out. I'll try to keep the interested folks here updated on events. It may be all touch and go. I have a ticket back home set for the 26th, but it's 50/50 whether I'll use it. That's both a good and bad thing.
Wish me luck.
