I had an allergic reaction a few minutes ago.

Not been around for weeks. Busy busy. Hope everyone is all right. Note a bit of spam - is an admin around with a laser gun?
Anyhow there I was using Georgia 12 on my laptop in my local library - always room and it's only 20 mins walk from my house with its phone and door interupting me. Darn it when my Sony vaio announced that the battery is low. Normally it lasts 10 hours, but I must have forgotten to charge it after last time. So I begged a guest pass to use one of the library stations. Turns out I used to teach the librarian twenty years ago. I quite like such reunions but really needed to get on with the story floating around in my brain.
Ten minutes writing and thinking later, she returned with another librarian. They asked if they could interrupt. How could I say, "Be a time traveller and don't interrupt to ask to interrupt, please." No. I smiled and tried to keep the next bit of my story in one of my many unused brain compartments.
Apparently, the other librarian is an events organiser for the library. Before another two minutes was up, I found myself volunteering to give a talk on how, why, where, blah blah I wrote Xaghra's Revenge. Stress, stress. It's not until June 21st so I can belay the stress for 5 months and finish my story.

A week after Noiz leaves the building, URL staggers in. He has seen the tumbleweeds rolling erratically outside, tied his skittish horse at the rail. He briefly wonders what the Hell is going on. But he really knows. It is another Dead Site. Time moves on. He used to come here often, to sip and talk. He has ranted and raved here about Things of little importance when he was younger. He was even published three times in the charity anthology. He became a Hero Member. Now it's all dust. Everyone is gone, the buzzards are circling.

No one behind the bar. Not even a smell.
"Hey, gimme a drink," he hollers.
No answer. He knew there wouldn't be.
He goes behind the bar and pours a tea glass of 30-year old single malt. He sips, then guzzles.
He wishes for the old days, looking into the abyss  . . .
