Squee-filled and Osaka Bound  
So... wow. I have to leave for the airport in less than four hours. My flight leaves at 6:00 am, and I have a four hour layover in Dallas. X_x;; I've reached that point of extreme point of anxiety and excitement where I can't wait to get over there, but I don't want to leave. Thrilled and terrified. Thank you, human brain, for being able to experience two completely contradictory emotions at the same time.

I really, really want this to go well. I have presents and food, more books than any normal person would travel with (eleven), a fresh sketchbook, clothes all packed, list all checked over...

I'm gonna miss you guys so, so much. You're all so awesome, and I love being able to hop online and see what all these awesome people I know are doing. ^_^ I'll probably be internet-less in Japan, as the village is really small. Gotenba (the nearest city) might have an internet cafe, but I don't think I'll be able to get down there much. It's only seventeen days. God, that seems like forever and at the same time no length at all.

But, if any of you are up around two o'clock tomorrow morning, send some good thoughts out to me. I'll be trying to catch the shinkansen in Osaka. *sweats*

Hopefully I'll have some great stories to tell when I got back. *hugs everyone*

Some individual messages:
Leigh-darling: Stay safe as you commute in DC, don't work to hard, and write something! ^_~ *huggles*
Amber: Your OT3 drabble was so awesome. I've been meaning to tell you that-- it rocked so hard. You nailed our boys, and I loved how you managed to write a fourth of july fic about three guys who aren't even from the US. Also, you always bring out the bext of Carlos-- how he's the leader of the team, but somehow always on the outside. I'll see if I can't pick you up something Wild-Adapter-related while in Japan. ^_^
Neb: *snuggles and gropes* I hope your muse starts being more cooperative. Dance pretty, okay? Love you, lambykins.
Leia_N: Here's hoping I can bring back some AW inspiration. And I've downloaded some of Thwarted Fate to entertain me on the plane. Whee.

*bounces, flails, squees*
This is Meredith, signing out. I'll be back on August 10th. Until then, don't do anything I wouldn't do-- if you do, take pictures. ^_~

Hee. I am glad you liked the drabble. :) And thank you for your kind words on it. (And Carlos... Carlos absolutely fascinates me, both in canon and in my weird little fanon. I've already thought about how devastated I'll be if anything happens to him down the road in the series.)

I hope you have a wonderful trip. I'll miss you. <3

*hugs you so hard* I will try to do as you say, and you-- you have a safe and wonderful trip! I'm going to miss you like hell (and I leave for the South Carolina hinterland a day or two after you get back, argh!), but I'm so glad you get to do this.

*snuggles and gropes back* It seems your good wishing has brought her back; my muse is now being very cooperative again. ~_^

Stay safe sweetie; I miss you so much, and I know I'm not going to see you in forever and a day. Come back in one piece, okay?

Love you too sweetheart,
