I hadn't had this resolve into a coherent thought until I was thanking Seanan McGuire for being welcoming of Josh at her latest book release party on Saturday. (Both the party and the book are awesome, btw. If she's still in CA for her next release you should totally come.)

Anyway, the thought is that while I'm rarely likely to think to say it, if we're bringing Josh to spend time around you, it means that we think you'll be an influence that we like on him. This is honestly the highest compliment I can think to give right now. Whether this involves coming to your place for hours or just bringing him over to say hi at Faire, it all comes down to the same thing in this respect - we like you so much that we're willing to let you influence our child. We may regret letting him learn some things, especially if he drives us nuts in repeating them, but we won't regret letting you teach them to him, if that makes any sense.

Note that our not spending time with you doesn't necessarily mean that we don't think you're a good influence. Sadly, time, money, and energy constraints prevent us from being everywhere we'd like to be and visiting everyone we'd like to visit.

Cross posted everywhere so all our scattered friends will read this.

Just remember, Josh, the dark side has pizza!

I've been enjoying this thread:

There's a lot of discussion about hacking toy accordions to make them sound better.

I suppose we should plan some more get-together time, huh?
