Had a great time at OVFF, despite the fact that although I'd taken Friday off of work and "slept in" I was exhausted enough that I crashed early both nights (missing tons of music and conversation).
I bought 2 new books (one that I thought I already had, but simply couldn't find -- and since I'd bought book #5
two weeks before, I needed to put my hands on book #4
) and one which was recommended to me by the same person to whom I recommended the afore(parenthetically)mentioned series.
I started reading 2 new books -- adding to the chaos that is my currently-reading list. One of them (fiction, written by someone I know - no relation to the series mentioned above) I'm not loving... but it may get better. The other (non-fiction, won in a raffle, related to Identity Theft) I am not really enjoying at all, but obsessive that I am, I will finish it. And then I will offer it back to the person from whom I won it, having written in ink (I don't usually do that to a book!) the various problems that I found -- some spelling, some consistency, some word-choice, some just lousy editing. I also made progress on a crochet-project, and had some wonderful time talking to folks -- both those whom I have known for a while and those I was introduced to this weekend. Or not even introduced to, for that matter.
Spouse & I hit the road, mid-late afternoon, and then, 45 minutes later, I got a call from another friend, telling me that if I could get to Ann Arbor by 7:30, I could get in to the Robin & Linda WIlliams concert for free. Spouse could have as well -- but he didn't have the time. But he drove me past the Ark (yes, before the show started, probably meaning a half hour or more sooner than I'd have been able to make it had I been driving), and the friend who'd called drove me home. Pretty good concert, although I didn't elect to buy any albums.
