Posting will be slow again today. Eri-chan, my best friend (and bil-ERI-co namesake), is in the United States for a few days and today is the last full day I get to spend with her. I've already got posts scheduled to auto-publish today and the Ed Team has agreed to keep an eye on the site if other items get submitted, but instead of our usual hourly posts we'll be running on the weekend schedule mostly of publishing every other hour or so.
The funniest part of her visit so far? While she knew I'd used her name for the website, she had no clue how popular it had become. She's still amazed how many people are stopping her in public or e-mailing to thank for her for unknowingly giving them bil-ERI-co. Within a couple hours of her arrival, someone stopped us on the street to ask, "Is this Eri?!" after reading about her visit online.
A few contributors and other friends had a small party in her honor at Mike Rogers' home Saturday night and yesterday was spent just hanging out and eating mostly. (She's the best cook in the world. Try the gyoza.) Today we're off to visit art museums with friends.
You can leave her well wishes on this thread. She's been reading the ones on the other post about her arrival and talking to all the fans; I think she's rather enjoying the minor celebrity. *grins*
