Dad is super excited because he found out last night that his favorite author Neil Gaiman is coming to town to do a reading. He's glad he found out beforehand, because if he missed the chance to see him he'd be really bummed. But now he's like a kid knowing Disney is on the calendar, but still weeks away. Dad can't even buy tickets for three weeks, but since there are only 200 seats available he has the ticket order page up on a tab ready to go (already). Dad's a nerd. But he gives us treats so we love him. (Mom won't get to go because it is opening night for the first play of the season at her theatre and she has to be there. She's not a Neil Gaiman super fan, but she's happy for Dad.)
Also, here's a funny story about a bear who broke into a candy store, with a security video of the bear.
