Social Saturday

30 08 2008

Wow, it’s been over 12 hours since I walked out the door this morning to get the day underway, and I had absolutely no idea I’d be out for so long.

Neither did Oliver, who was quite beside himself when I finally got home, and was howling at the door.  I think he thought I’d abandoned him, he’s developed separation anxiety since Mulder vanished.  Poor kitty.

Initially the plan was to drive Mark into Seattle to drop him off for some geek convention and then meet up with a friend for a day of social activities, and the plan worked a treat.  The only concession I made was that rather than phone my friend at 10 am when I arrived in Seattle, I went book shopping, made a couple of purchases and settled in with a coffee to have a read, and allow my friend; Geoff a bit of a Saturday sleep in, before we met up for real coffee, not Starbucks crap, followed by a trip around the stores.

All in all a pretty good day, and now that I’ve home and proven to Oliver that I’ve not left him, a deal sweetened by being fed, all is well again.

Hooroo and have a good weekend!

Hey, this geek convention was it PAX, if so another one of our friends from Australia was working there. I think he was interviewing geeks or something.

Matt… Off the top of my head I can’t remember the titles exactly.

There was something about The Arsonists Guide to Writers houses in New England, and something about Bad Monkeys

Jamie… Yup that was it!
