Updated Confusion plans  

So I called Amtrak and added on the bits betwwen Detroit and (what? Birmingham? whatever that station close to the hotel is). They issued two new tickets for just those segments, since I got special time-bound discounts on the initial ticket and re-booking would have cost a lot more. Indeed, adding those segments means the whole trip will cost slightly more than it would have had I'd known to do that from the start, but if I'd waited until all the information was in I might never have got around to actually doing it so it's probably all just as well.

I also had a delightful thought about what we can do with our time during the layover in Chicago between trains instead of just sitting there in the station: chasophonic, chirosinger, and I can crack our cases, get out our gitfiddles, and do some tunes; then we can send the lovely and radiant bonz_lizard and mizzlaurajean around with hats to gather some spending money. Nu?

Sounds like lunch money to me! Hmmm. What shall I wear?

David needs a job too. Oh and I believe Graham can play too.
Oh and Minnehaha K. can gather unless she'd rather hunt.

I think all musicians should wear black with hats.

While I think y'all would be a welcome addition to station ambience, you should probably be aware that the City O' Chicago requires all buskers to obtain a street performer's license.

Oh, drat! I just knew there had to be a catch in there somewhere. *sigh* Thanks for the tip. I guess we'll just have to pass the time sitting around the station as best we can without making music….

Your icon drawing, it is of you? For a startled moment there, I thought it looked rather like Kate Worley, but now I can see that it isn't. It is very nice….

As I understand it, you should be able to pass the *time* making music (unless you're asked not to), you just can't pass the *hat* without a license.

The purty icon is, indeed, me -- at least, me as seen by the multi-talented ohiblather.

See you at ConFusion!
