Very interesting. It's good to know Kennedy likes me--happy birthday, Space Cat, by the way--but I hope Lt. Edenost isn't just pretending. :) As for the folks from the Stargate program-- *raises eyebrow* --I guess I'll let them explain themselves once they finish saving the world again. (Quark? Yes, I know. All hew-mons are strange.)
*looks at list of questions piling up from interuniversal community* I really ought to write some replies, but to be honest this is the first I've been at the computer in a week. Can you believe it? I've been enjoying my time off before the baby comes--sleeping in a little late, spending my afternoons in the small town near here or puttering around the house. It's incredibly peaceful. I met a young woman named Mika in the market; she has a son a little over a year old who she promised to bring to visit some time. She's shy but very sweet.
Well, I'm going to call up Kilby and see how things are going on the ship--it's been a week, after all, that's long enough that he won't think I'm breathing down his neck. (He better be taking good care of it.) And then I think I'll go have a look at the back yard again and try to decide if those are actually alvas grapes growing back there. I hope so; I'm getting a little tired of replicated food, and Jake's on the station so I can't get him to cook.
Brace yourselves for a birth announcement in a few days. Talk to you all soon.
One of the things involved in unpacking at the new house is the job of setting the comm system here as the default for people trying to page me. In the process of doing so, I found out that I could get visuals on all the people I've been corresponding to on the interuniversal community. Maybe it's a new feature, or maybe I just never noticed it before. At any rate, here they are:
Kasidy stands in her quarters on the station. Today is moving day. It's not as though she's actually taking very much with her down to Bajor; most of the furniture and household items in the house are new, and what she is moving has mostly been taken on previous runs. And she's keeping her quarters on the station for now, because she'll still be spending time here over the next few months. But today she's taking the last few boxes of clothes, and the small personal items that mark this as home. After today, the house in the Yolja Valley will be "home," and DS9 just a stop on a freight run.
Since she's already on Bajor, Kasidy decides to stop by her house after her meeting. Before finding some food and taking a nap (she really wants to check out the house in detail, but she's quite sleepy) she checks to see if the comm system is working. It is, and she finds the following meme waiting:
