Qu├ębec City

We have three days to spend in the city andso far the weather has been
perfect. It is sunny and 65 degrees.

The city is beautiful. It is nice to get a chance to practice my
meager French. It really does feel like we stepped into Europe. Awesome!

We don't have regular access to the internet, so I'm piggy backing off
of a hotel's wifi. Thank goodness for the iPhone.

Almost home

I'm sitting in 30th Street Station waiting for Pants to get here. My
flight to Philly was diverted to Baltimore thanks to the snow storm.
Pants's flight to Philly was much later than mine so by then the
runways were clear. He's sitting on the tarmac waiting to get off the
plane. Then he'll get the car and pick me up. Home is in sight. Now if
only they had trains to Reading then I wouldn't have to wait for him.

Mega Con

It's Sunday at Mega Con and I'm still having a blast. The energy level
at this con is always through the roof and this year is no different.
I've never seen so many costumes in my life.

It's awesome!

Evening at Epcot

Thanks to a generous and hooked-up forum member we are able to enjoy
Thursday night at Epcot for free. It's my favorite Disney park so of
should be a good night.

Game Night

Settlers of Catan continues to be a popular choice in our gaming
group. Personally it's a favorite. I'm looking forward to getting the
last expansion.
