So one of my daughters became very distraught tonight when she learned that the Easter eggs she created are going to meet a... er.... um, a grisly end (as my wife's egg salad). She had a roaring tantrum in which she told Easter not to come.

I tried a compromise solution of coming up with some new tradition, like we send them off on a spaceship to Easter World or something (and my wife can make another batch of eggs for herself), but she won't have any of it. She wants her egg friends to live in the refrigerator forever.

We've put off the inevitable fate until tomorrow, and let her spend some time with them tonight. Here she is, pointing to the Egg King. This does not bode well.

Black Friday Amazon sale, +Brad Jennings. Never heard of it before then, but great for the price.

My wife Danielle is running her first 10k today, and I'm bringing the girls along once she's started her race. They have a Fun Run for kids, which should be, well, fun. Busy morning ahead. First, some writing!

I just sent +R.J. Blain chapters 35-40 of The Only City Left for their 2nd round of edits. It's been 24 days after sending off the last bunch of chapters to her. Sometimes this project seems like it will take forever, but each step brings me a little closer.

Even as I was editing these chapters, I was getting excited to find out what happens in the last five chapters of the book. Wait, don't I already know?

My wife, minutes after the 10k. I missed her crossing the finish line, so she greeted me with a gentle kick in the ass.

Thanks, +Karen Woodward. She has been working out and eating right for over half a year now. She puts me to shame. :)

Over the past two weeks, I've watched season 1 of Orphan Black, just in time for season 2 tomorrow.

Holy crap. I knew going in that a lot of people said it was awesome.

They were right. It is awesome. Tatiana Maslany is amazing, every one of her.

The show is intense, well-written, full of surprises, and populated with realistic characters.

Yes, there were a couple of major suspension of disbelief moments for me early on, but overall the acting and writing pull you past those. If you haven't seen this show already, check it out.

Saw this review of Rat Queens and now I may need to grab those comics from +comiXology, too.

The funny thing is, if I saw a bunch of relatively new $1 comics in a store, I'd be all over them, but I actually deliberate much more for digital ones. :)

$2 off a plastic water bottle... for Earth Day.

Isn't it ironic, don't ya think?

[Couldn't get the dang picture to crop the first time I posted it.]

If it was 100% plant bottle it wouldn't be so bad.

One of my 3-year-old daughters, saying goodnight to me: "Goodnight man-pig."
Wife: What?
Daughter: He's a man-pig, but we call him Dad.

Aw, how sweet.

Introduction
I am a dad, husband, and writer. I like science-fiction and fantasy in most formats, including books, movies, TV, comic books, RPGs, and webcomics.

I am serializing a sciency fantasy novel called The Only City Left at atgoldman.com and my latest (okay, first) published story is now up at Electric Spec.
I liked the food here. Big pancakes and thick, tasty strips of bacon. The eggs were cooked properly. You order at the counter and then basically don't see staff again unless you seek them out, but everyone was polite when I needed something.

The sandwiches were excellent, which you would expect. Dessert, not so much. We had black-and-white cookies and carrot cake, neither of which was up to par. The waitress reported that they recently started making the cookies in-house, which is too bad because they don't know how to do it well. Service was okay. The wait staff was nice but there were a lot of "we ran out of that," and "we can't substitute this." If you go in knowing that it's their show, not yours, you won't risk disappointment. I would return for the sandwiches alone.

I just moved nearby and tried the San Rafael store first, but the Novato store is much much better. Friendly staff, big store, and good parking. We will always be using the Novato store now!

Kind of pricey for the amount of food you get and the food was just okay.

This is a laid-back environment with some great breakfast food, especially the foot-wide pancakes. They only take cash but there is an ATM inside if you need it. The staff is very casual, but they're on top of refills and whatnot.

I visited this shop for the comic books, which seems to be about half its business (the other half being sports cards). The store is small, very small, but clean and bright, and the owner was friendly and not at all pushy. There is one room lined with selected back issues. I was there on a Thursday and there were only about six new comic books left from the day before. I get the sense this is a place where you can put in orders for the comic books you want, but not someplace you just walk in, browse, and buy.
