Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

So, as I briefly mentioned the other day, my husband hit a deer on his way up north. My husband is fine and I’m not really sure what happened to the deer, he said it ran off. The car, on the other hand, was beat up pretty bad, $1200 dollars bad. Fun stuff.

I was up till 5:30 a.m. Tuesday morning sorting it all out and I think I have just now recovered. I stay up till 4:00 a.m. occasionally with no problems. I guess my 40-year-old body and mind can’t handle that extra hour and a half. I’m such a wimp.

Ouch on the car!

Penguicon is going on this weekend at the Troy Marriott hotel. It's a combination Science Fiction and Open Source Software convention, and it's a blast.

Also the Motor City Vaudeville Revue looks good.
