Day off

Today is when Veteran's Day is being celebrated so we have it off. I spent most of the first part of the day reading Two Dark Reigns. Which, it seems, is not the last book in the series. Though I haven't finished it yet.

I also Skyped the FWiB. That was very nice.

Then around 4:40, [personal profile] mashfanficchick texted she was in the city, and did I want to meet her at Union Square? So I headed into Union Square. We didn't have time for much before her mother got there, but we went to Forbidden Planet, and looked at the books for sale outside the Strand. Then after her mother got there we went to dinner at the Poke Stop. Yummy dinner, because nothing says "dinner in Manhattan" like raw fish on rice!

After dinner we went to a pastry place that I can't spell for dessert, and we sat and talked a while. While we were there we got the e-mail that someone who was a very big name and important person in the Starsky and Hutch fandom had died. I didn't know her personally but she was one of the con committee of SHarecon, so i had met her. So that was sad. And of course there was Stan Lee as well.

Anyway, they drove me home and here I am.

Last night the Kid called me while I was in bed, much as I love hearing from her I hope she doesn't do that again tonight cause I have to get up for work tomorrow!

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. The Kid.

3. The legacy of Stan Lee.

4. Good books.

5. Fandom.

6. The rain didn't start until late.
