Went up to Monroe this past weekend to launch the sixth chapter of Fleet. It was a great party, even if the weather decided to be quite cold. Had a good time hanging out with old friends and making new ones. The pub we all went to dinner at was excellent and kept the food and drinks flowing. Though, next time, I think we might want to reserve the upstairs dining room.

Also got to drop by and see Eeks in Ypsi. She fed me lots of tea and tasty healthy food. We had roasted broccoli, peanut sauce covered kale, turmeric milk, and pizza with cauliflower and sweet potato toppings, among other things. As always, a great culinary adventure. She also let me watch Les Miserables while she finished her work for Monday. It was good, but it was not what I expected, so I need to see it again with revised expectations.

This weekend is MARcon downtown, so we’re throwing a fleet party tomorrow night. It will be a great time, and next year, we get to get off Easter weekend, as the con goes back to Mother’s Day weekend. Then, of course, is Easter Sunday. I was considering spending time with family, but then my boss asked/begged me to take a shift, so I’ll be working the evening at the store.

Hope everyone has a great Easter weekend! And Mom, Happy early Birthday!

Slow day at work, but made up for it with TGIFriday’s and A Good Day to Die Hard afterwards. Food was tasty, of course. But, not gonna lie, I expected more from Die Hard. It was too straight forward, and a bit too much family reunion/heartfelt father-son moments. But there were guns, and car chases and explosions, so not all bad.

Two more people ditching the store. One manager moving to another store, and one long-time bookseller heading into a new career. Hope the moves are good for them. Wonder what kind of person we’ll get to replace the manager. I’m still looking. More library applications this week. Might have a contact for McGraw-Hill soon.

Trying to add some tumeric to my diet for anti-inflammatory properties. Worked in the tomato soup, but it didn’t actually dissolve in the tea… that was weird.

Two Valentine’s parties this weekend. Should be much fun with friends. Might even get some sleep in there somewhere, too.
