I lived in Virginia for four years, and yet tonight was the first time I had actually been in the state capital. I can say that it was worth the wait: Not only was it a good crowd, but they also sang me “Happy Birthday” (because my birthday is tomorrow) and I got cake and cool presents! This is the best May 9 ever.
And with tonight’s reading, I am officially done with the tour. Tomorrow I hie myself off to the airport and head to see my family. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to that.
I’ll have more to say on this later, I’m sure. But for now I’ll have one last room service dinner on Tor, and then head to sleep. Tomorrow I’ll be another year older, and on my way home.
