    @FantasticBabblings I’m looking forward to the lack of drama – that everything goes smooth as silk and you recover beautifully. But if there are great stories in the adventure, I do hope you’ll share!

  • FantasticBabblings:

    @thizizliz Thanks Liz. Spent the whole day preparing now unwinding with a late nighter before everything kicks in. I hope to do a video tomorrow night before going to the hospital. I’m turning all of this into an epic, invoking the ghost of Goethe, etc. Life is most fun if you embrace the drama :)
