    Seriously, this time I’ll be there, I’ll stay, and I’ll have something worthwhile to say. Well, maybe two out of the three things.

    Great meeting, as usual.

    I see in the photos that my posture has not improved.

    I just realized next month’s meeting happens during the Boston 48 Hour Film Project. I probably won’t be able to make it… unless things are going really well, or really, really, really badly.
