Ok folks, I'm not very good at writing these things up.. and I'm usually too busy taking pics to remember half of what the guests said but I'll give it a shot here. Please forgive me if this is a bit disjointed.

The con weekend actually started for me very early Wednesday morning with a mad dash through commute traffic to the airport to pick up Kendaa. Her plane was right on time and after a short wait I easily spotted her coming through customs... Hard to miss her with the huge box of Tim Tams she was carrying! A few hugs and squeals and it was off to my car and back to my home. We managed to get everything inside, talking non-stop of course, and I got to present her with the first of the 16 (or more) bears she collected this weekend. Unfortunately for me I couldnt take the entire day off so after getting her settled I headed to work and left Kendaa to try to get a nap.

Wednesday night was spent chatting and catching up... with a side trip to my brother's to pick up his digital camera. This was the only night I actually went to bed at a reasonable time. LOL Kendaa was still suffering from jet lag and I had to work a couple of hours the next morning.

As sson as I got home Thursday we headed out on a sight seeing expedition. I'd promised Kendaa that we would have lunch in Hercules. (Yes, there is a town in the SF Bay Area named Hercules.) We had a nice lunch there then spent some time driving around the town. We even managed to find the corner of Hercules and Zeus and drove on Olympus and Apollo. We were having a blast finding all the different street names... Athena, Titan, Bacchus, and Nike are the ones I remember... oh and there was a Hera street as well. Unfortunately we never did find an Ares street before we had to leave once more for the airport to pick up Cassopeia. (We made it with 15 minutes to spare before her plane came in.)

More hugs and squeals when Cass came off the plane. Then it was off once more for a drive through commute traffic. Ah well, who cares how long the drive is when you've got three Amazons talking non-stop??? We spent the evening talking and showing each other goodies and watching tapes of the new Herk eps before I finally crawled in bed at about 1:30 in the morning.


Well guys, hate to do this but I have to head for work now... More later, I promise!
