Hey, Ello-ites!(Ellosians? Ellorati? What do we call ourselves here, anyway?)
I was staying in a hotel with no free wifi (curses!) in Chicago, so I didn't disappear willingly. I saw a lot of excellent stuff, mostly had a good time, and was very pleased to discover that I really haven't lost my cold tolerance, despite living in the subtropics for many years.
I will probably post some more specific thoughts on my trip later, especially about David Bowie's costumes. Which were amazing.
