Have I told y'all lately how awesome you are? No? You are all AWESOME. <3

I jsut got back from a fantastic weekend up north with my brother, his wife, and my two little nephews. It was a soggy weekend, which was a shame since they live up in Ontario "cottage country" where so many of the best activities involve the outdoors, but we managed to have a thoroughly enjoyable time nonetheless. For my birthday on Saturday, my sis-in-law baked an OMFG SO TASTY cake, my bro cooked up a lobster dinner (I looove lobster!) and the nephews were as delightful as it's possible for a six-month-old and a two-year-old to be - which is pretty darn delightful, I have to say. I am still grinning.

In other news, last week I succumbed to curiosity after hearing so many people on my flist rhapsodizing about the new BBC Sherlock, and WOW was I not disappointed. I've never been much of a Sherlock Holmes fan, but THIS. The compelling acting, the witty dialogue, the perfect pacing... *shining eyes* If anyone has some fic recs, please point me towards them! I'm not sure I can bear to wait however long it will take them to make a second series!

This week will be a busy one - [livejournal.com profile] eboniorchid is in town (YAAAY!) and FanExpo is this weekend. But I am hoping to have a bit of time this evening before heading out to anime watching to catch up with y'all on LJ. Looking forward to it! :D

SHERLOCK! There is SO MUCH fic out there, it's crazy. I'm waiting for rec lists to pop up myself.

You going to FanExpo?! I'll probably be there on Saturday.

I know, right? Why did I have to discover it when I'm so busy in real life and don't have time to peruse it all properly? (My hard life, let me show you it! ;D)

Oh hey, cool! :D Anything in particular you'll be checking out? We're still working on our schedule, but aside from seeing JMS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Michael_Straczynski) it will probably be pretty anime-centric. I am personally psyched to meet Yoshitaka Amano (http://www.google.ca/images?q=Yoshitaka%20Amano&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1680&bih=832) who's work I just adore.

Not attending any Q&As -- just hoping to catch glimpses of celebs (James Marsters!!) in the autograph area. Other than that, the plan is visit my cousin's booth and just wander around.
