Seattle... Again

Last week I got to go back to Seattle for meetings for work. I flew in a couple hours earlier than I normally would have and met up with my friend Heather and we did a little exploring the night before the meetings started.

We ended up at the EMP museum which has a Star Wars costume exhibit. The geek in me had a blast.


 
 

There were lots of fun costumes to see from the new and old movies.

 

 
Queen Amidala's costumes were especially fun. She had a bunch of them. 


 
 
 

 
Not only did they have Star Wars but they had an exhibit with random stuff from a bunch of sci-fi movies and tv shows.  And another exhibit with costumes and things from fantasy movies.
 
 


For dinner that night, I got to try a pasty, which is a Cornish meat pie type of thing. It was pretty good. 

After the 2 days of meetings, a couple of us took a later flight out on Friday so we spent a little time at Pike's Market, which is always a fun thing to do. We ate breakfast at a place called Biscuit Bitch and it was absolutely delicious. Biscuits and gravy with scambled eggs and bacon on top. I couldn't finish it.


It was kind of cold and rainy and rainy when I got home (but not so cold, thank goodness) but since I like rainy days, it was ok with me. It was a nice week and nice to get away from home for a bit. I'm glad to be sleeping in my own bed again though.
