Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday and the Easter Bunny was generous. It was a cold, blustery, rainy day in SF, not good for easter egg hunting. So we went to Wondercon, hung out with friends and had a good time indoors. I only bought myself some Peeps candy this week, but this morning wish I had gotten some chocolate too. It doesn't seem like Easter without a chocolate bunny. I use to LOVE the Cadbury Creme eggs, but can't stomach that much sugar in one setting anymore. Tomorrow I'm going to buy some peanutbutter eggs and mini cadbury eggs, and it will be half off to boot!
Tonight the rain poured hard, so we crawled into bed with the heater on and watched Sherlock Holmes. I still wish Watson had been older the Holmes, but otherwise enjoyed the movie. Well, I enjoyed it except for the scenes on the bridge at the end. I have vertigo and I got sick from just watching them on a tv. I can't imagine how ill I would have been if I had see it on the big screen.
Tomorrow, its back to work time. I gave out a bunch of Call for Entries for the 1000 Steampunk Inspirations book at Wondercon. I need to email all those people a "nice to meet you" note. I also need to build up inventory for the upcoming shows and look for another place to live. Not looking forward to the latter...........
