how you have a birthday

After a latte and coffee cake on the way to the station, I took the train to SF to visit with ckastens and go to the Game Developers Conference.

On the train down, I finished "The Dybbuk's Moll"! Finished it, I say! Yay!

GDC was much fun, lots of brain-expanding information on the state of the computer game industry (platforms, games, tools, interface stuff, etc).

Chris and I cruised the floor, then had lunch and chatted about writing, then cruised the floor a bit more, then had coffee and chatted more about writing. It was very good, and I owe him a big thanks for the pass to the show. Thanks, Chris!

On the train back I finished "The Straw that Shines Like The Sun", this week's story for deathless_pose. The prompt was "unexpected inheritance". Two stories in one day!

Dinner was a selection of Indian food from Kaveri (yum!), along with whiskey sours. Excellent.

After dinner, I played all the punk rock songs on Guitar Hero 3. Yeah!

Birthday cake was a fruit tart from Whole Foods. Yum again!

Now we're all watching "A Hard Day's Night" and I'm answering the birthday good wishes from LJ and VP and Internet pals.

And that's how you have a birthday! Thanks to everyone!
