New Year's Eve

Quick rundown of the weekend. Picked Janet up at the airport Wednesday morning. Breakfast at the 14 Carrot Café. Lounged around the apartment afterward waiting to find out what was up with Erin. Turns out Erin was scrambling for transportation, so we drove to Tacoma to pick her up. Afternoon was spent me with Dan (Janet's son) and Erin with Janet. I took Dan to the Space Needle, but he got a bit queasy being so high up, so we didn't stay up too long. Also hit the magic store at Pike Place and picked Dan up a how to do card tricks set. We spent some of the evening and next day practicing. Erin managed to help Janet get decorative clothing for a cheap price. Dinner was Chinese take out. Deidre volunteered to re-tie Janet's corset around 8. And Kelsey arrived to watch Dan around 9. And Janet and I headed off to the Mercury.

I had a blast. Lots of people I knew. Didn't have any long extended conversations, but I very much enjoyed spending New Year with so many friends. Got to introduce Janet to quite a few people on my friends list. She reads that on occasion (the public posts), and got to put names and faces to online journals.

New Year's Day we went to the Seattle Aquarium. And cooked sloppy joes from scratch for dinner.

And I got to take them back to the airport today. All in all a good trip. Very nice to catch up with Janet in person for once. And looking forward to the next visit.
