The weekend was busy. Very busy.
Saturday, my wife and I volunteered for the Grilled Cheese Invitational. I helped with the box office, while she took tickets from those who'd bought them online. We ran into a number of folks that we rarely see, including many who now live in the Bay Area. Very nice. I had a bit of grilled cheese as well as a very tasty lobster bisque during the proceedings.
Later that evening, Noodle and axelicious stopped by, and we went out for Mongolian BBQ for dinner. Afterwards it was sit and chat. A very pleasant evening.
Sunday, we did some building of supports for the tomato plants, started repairs on some damage that brushette caused, and then went to Dungeonmaster for the chaos episode. Folks seemed to like the episode just fine; now to get down to review the sixth script...
Last night was first Seder for Passover, and we had a lovely time with it. I managed to get there just in time from work. Things were a bit chaotic as we used several resources for the prayers, songs, and readings, but it all worked out nicely. Food was wonderful, too.
Home, we stayed up to watch the lunar eclipse, at least until totality. It amazed me how the Moon looked so much more spherical than it does with the glare of reflected sunlight. It was definitely orange; it was also very amusing to realize that Mars was nearby as we watched. I'm convinced that we also saw a number of dim meteors at the same time, making it just about perfect. Lovely sight.
Surprised I never ran into you two at GCI. I was there volunteering too.
I'm sure that there were plenty of our friends there that we missed, one thing or another. We saw Andrew, though...hard to miss him!
Did you find the afikomen?
I left that for the 8-year-old...
Where is it now?

In LA, near the crossing of I-10 and I-5; look at www.the-dungeonmaster.com
A few of the crew are the same, most of the crew are new.
Show Sunday and two weeks from Sunday, then hiatus (convention shows occasionally) until Autumn.
Saw the link but the dates did not match your post.
Planning to explore that area Thursday.
It will be autumn for me - need to save up to stay overnight in LA.
Prefer Metrolink and Greyhound to driving.

Some of the cast use mass transit to come to the show from the Westside, but I know nothing of such things. Are you on Facebook? There's a more active presence there, more up-to-date data. Also, if you want to be on stage and have travelled more than a thousand miles, you're on automatically...
I am all over the Mass Transit map; regularly go from Hollywood to Muscle Beach Metro217 to Metro733 Venice/StM or Metro534 StM/Malibu then take the City of StM Big Blue Bus R10 back to LAUS (an hour or less) or off in downtown LA for more landmark learning.
No I am not on the Great Satan of Anti-Social Media, so I appreciate your being my DM intel source.
Happily my journey is less than 100 miles.
I am content as an audience member.

We'll look forward to seeing you there, then!
