Heheheheheheh. Oh those European keyboards...

You should see the French ones! And the ones in Switzerland! Good grief.

At least by the time I made it to Italy and Amsterdam, the keyboards'
configurations were ... um ... warming onto me.

Welcome to Berlin, my dear.

As I told Audrey the other night, I don't think I'll make it to Berlin. I
still haven't managed to raise enough funds for my bills for this month,
never mind an airplane ticket (which is twice my bills for January) and
never mind the funds for survival once in Europe. I still haven't lost hope,
though.

I'd love to still be part of whatever discussion is going on re: Journey.

I hope you're well. I'm chinning up and keeping on, myself. Spending more
and more time fabricating things on my own, for Crucible, for Monkeylectric
and for whoever else will let me at their tools and materials. So much for
office work and a steady, dependable income. But at the end of each day I
get to be in a shop, I walk away with a huge grin on my face and a bounce in
my step.

Eli
