Memories in the rear view mirror are larger than they appear

Well, Marko's paw-holding (and tail-raising) tour of America has drawn to a close. It's nice to be back in front of a familiar computer and familiar heat. (It's not actually excessively hot today, which is good. But I'll never complain about the heat again. cryoyank was right.) But, god, I'm going to miss you guys. I've left pieces of my heart in America and I'll have to come back for them.

Before going, I speculated that this trip might break me, giving me an opportunity to rebuild myself. It didn't. Further, several people seemed to be quite taken by this humble rat from Australia. It's easy to dismiss my Australian fans, but Americans would not be so easily taken in. ;) It leaves me wandering if maybe there's more to me than I think. I shall have to meditate on that later.

In the mean time, I have been in transit for 34 hours (counting all the waiting in airports and arriving ridiculously early because it's an international flight) and I'm a smelly rat. I'm going to go have a shower.

It was an honor to meet you Marko and I appreciated the fursuit snuggly goodness too.

GOOD!

Total vindication -- I love it!

Cold so bad that I was scared to go back out into it.

ROTFL! Sorry, but after all the nay-saying I had to put up with from you, I'm enjoying this to the max! ;D

On another note, may I say that I'm glad my compatriots treated you well. I'm proud as punch that my country had such a good impression on you. Just two things if you go back to the U.S.A.: Go to Chicago and Boston this time!

marko_the_rat: Re: loving the cold! (whoc could seriously complain about it?)

That's not what you were saying on the phone earlier, love. And if you think the cold is no big deal if you have "sensible clothes", I should take you to New York in the winter. You'll change your tune pretty damn quick, let me tell you...

Hmm...you live in Australia, on the other side of the world. And you were in my home city. I did not get to see you. You do the math.

Glad you made it home safe and sound. I look forward to seeing you next time you come over to visit. (Or we come to visit you? Who knows!)

You and Kit are always welcome. Trey too, of course. We had some nice chats down in his part of the house.

Hey Marko, glad you made it back all safe, and glad that you had a such a good time. It was really great to get to meet you finally, and I would love to perhaps visit the land Down Under sometime in kind :)

Hope everything is going well, give Ristin a hug for me too, and oh yeah, thank you for the music! :D

*hugs*
