Erin and the girls are playing in the snow in Cleveland this weekend, and I’ve stayed in sunny North Carolina to attend to a long to-do list, which today included yard work, the final report for the science blogging conference and a trip to Chapel Hill for tea at 3CUPS and comics at Chapel Hill Comics.

For five years I’ve been visiting that comics store to buy Y-The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan. Back in 1992 2002, Brian sent me black-and-white copies of the story that was shaping up to be the first issue of his award-winning series. I wrote a story for Northern Ohio Live about Brian, who’d been a summer intern for me when I was editor there in 1997.

Tonight, after a conference call to plan the twentieth anniversary reunion of my high school class (DeKalb High School Class of 1988), I took a trip to the local supermarket, where I discovered Presidente beer, the cold brew I enjoyed during my visit to the Dominican Republic in 2004.

Tomorrow, a hike at Eno River State Park, dinner with my mother, and more to-do list projects.
