And the Slate article is now live.

It amuses me that on Facebook, my friends had it all over my timeline even before I had gotten the note from my editor that it was up. I loved little film montage they got for it, too.

It's cool, too, to get to meet some of the people that read it, too.
I freely admit I take every opportunity in my life to point out to people that I know the at least partial inspiration for the character of Jordan. :)

I could swear that you said once upon a time at a party that the sweater took more like 2 nights?

Huh... in my memory, thirty-plus years old, I finished in a night because I was cold... but it certainly wasn't an argyle sweater. *laughs* It was just a white cabled one with the sleeves too long, but memories are malleable.
