The Spring Home & Garden Show was a big success! We sold a bunch of books, met a lot of cool people, and had a great time. Much mahalos to my friend and fellow author Roslyn McFarland for organizing an awesome event and being an expert cat-herder. Thanks also goes to NIWA, Tina from Jacobsen's Books, O'Loughlin Trade Shows, and everyone who bought a book and supported us throughout the weekend.
Video Game Update: the game I'm currently playing is Xenoblade Chronicles, a sprawling epic sci-fi/fantasy adventure along the lines of Zelda, etc. The gameplay is actually rather simplistic - one day I realized that the whole thing could basically be boiled down to: run, fight, cutscene, repeat. You have to spend a lot of time finding your way around and leveling up, and at one point I even nearly gave up because I couldn't get past a certain bunch of enemies.
among my favorites.
I also tried Flappy Bird at my son's request. That game is hard. My high score is 3. His is 91.
Me (noticing that Cindy Williams from "Laverne & Shirley" is on the Nickelodeon show "Sam & Cat"): Hey, that lady looks familiar
My 10-Year Old Daughter: (continues doing homework)
Me (noticing that Penny Marshall is in the next scene): Hey, it's Laverne! They're doing a Laverne & Shirley reunion thing! On Sam & Cat! That is so awesome. Several different levels of awesome, in fact.
Daughter: (glances at me, continues doing homework)
Me: Those ladies were on this show called Laverne & Shirley, like, thirty years ago or something. It was kind of like Sam & Cat, which is why this is so cool!
Daughter: Do we have any more apple juice?
