Yesterday was First Contact Day in the Star Trek universe. I only mention that because timing is everything, and geekdom knows no bounds. In my personal life, I was fortunate enough to have a first contact of my own. Author and friend Samantha Wilcoxson and her family had some manner of business engagement down in San Antonio. On their way back home, they stopped in the Dallas area yesterday. The family split off to do their own thing, so Samantha and I got to finally meet in person over dinner. Too short a visit, I think, but we hit it off rather well. To me, there was no difference in the conversation between online and in person. She’s just that awesome. Thanks for stopping in, Samantha. We’ll have to figure out a way to do this again in the near future… bigger next time.
