"Rich and velvety with a hint of iPad"

Also known as "adventures in find and replace." This actually happened a few months ago, but for some reason I was thinking about it tonight. I was working on revisions for Book #1 one night and came across this puzzling paragraph:

"The waiter approached the table and filled their glasses from a bottle of wine Kate must have ordered while he was outside. It was a Merlot, rich and velvety with a hint of iPad. Kate’s taste in wine appeared to be as classy and refined as the rest of her."

I started writing #1 five years ago, so to accomodate changing technology, I went in and did a find and replace to change a character's Blackberry to an iPad. The end result had my protagonists sharing a Merlot "with a hint of iPad." I still can't read that scene without laughing :)

Also, I just hit 10,000 words in Book #2! I'm currently ahead of the goal I've set for myself...let's see if I can keep it up.
