I hope that each of you has had a good Passover/Easter week. I’ve been busy with work, especially after the departure of former associate editor and fellow blogger Bianca S. (who had been my strong right hand on two sites) and subsequent departmental reorganization. We’ve also moved cubicles within TT’s offices in Newton, Massachusetts.
My brother, his wife, and their daughters visited recently. We went to the New England Aquarium and Boston Children’s Museum and enjoyed lunches at the crowded but diverse Faneuil Hall. We also got a snack of Belgian frites at Saus near Quincy Market and had sushi at the Fuji Japanese Steakhouse in Needham. We also cooked “barbecue” (sloppy Joes) and spaghetti and meatballs.
In addition, I was pleased to find that my nieces liked Wonder Woman and the Teen Titans‘ Starfire, and we played Wii Sports Resort and other games. The grownups enjoyed Uno and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. My role-playing games are on hiatus for the holiday week.
Janice and I will be visiting her family in Pennsylvania, but I don’t yet know when I’ll see my parents in Virginia again. In the meantime, I’m helping to plan a cookout coinciding with Damon F.P. and hopefully Dexter V.H.‘s visit in mid-May, a trip to Corbin A.Y. and friends in Manhattan in June, and a visit to David I.S. in Upstate New York and business trip to Chicago in July!
That’s not even counting local steampunk festivals, summer movies, or comic book conventions. Beyond all that is my 25th anniversary high school reunion in October. So much to do, so little time!
