    Or were you and Kodiak in on it together? Man, it's weird, you both have distinct writing voices in my mind, but I always forget which name goes with which voice.

      When it took me 15 minutes to go one block, I knew my plan was in trouble.

        Long after the meetup time I tried to make it over to Lady Forward. It actually looked like I'd be able to make it, but then I got sucked into some sort of human hedge maze. Somehow every time I tried to go forward I got pushed further back than from where I started. Then I tried to get out, but that posed the same problem. Finally I decided to be a little more politely pushy and managed to make headway out of the crowd.

        At one point, I looked behind me and saw I was being followed by about half a dozen fire fighters. "Hey, you guys go first" I told them "I think people will clear a path for you quicker". "Us?" the lead fire fighter said "We were following you because you were actually getting somewhere!"

        Together, we managed to get out and I used an ally to cut over a block north where things weren't quite so packed.
