Second write-in!  We had 13 people show up for this one, our biggest Wendy’s write-in to date since our previous ML started holding them there in 2009.  It was fabulous!

We had another earth-rumble.  I’m still hearing everything from ‘new earthquake’ to ‘aftershock’.  It was a 4.7.  To be honest, though, none of us at the Wendy’s even felt it.  They must have a pretty sturdy foundation.

I also love our NaNo chat bot (his main purpose is timing word wars, but he has several other functions as well 😉 ).  He gave me a million bucks last night, in addition to what he gave me on Day 3.  Too bad none of it is real . . .
