For a weekend that started with a Klingnon, a pirate and sailor, it hasn’t been that bad. :-) I had a blast with the folks in Memphis. But man, they wore my butt out today. :-) Started with breakfast with a great group of folks. Let’s see… I did a new media panel. No one showed up at first, but as folks trickled in, it turned out to be a lot of fun. I was on my soapbox about, if you want to be a writer, sit your butt and the chair and do it, then submit. You know how I can be. :-) I’m pretty sure I scared half the people in the room.
Then it was lunch with the volunteers and other GOH’s. Much fun sitting between Len W. and Selina R. She’s what Yard Dog Press is all about and she makes me laugh – alot. I wanted to mug Len Wein for his shirt, which had the Super Friends on the back. He makes me laugh too. No wonder he’s a Comic book God.
The Joss Whedon panel was well attended and lots of opinions in that room. From what I gathered, we all think Joss has had enough time away from television. It’s time for him to come back with some coolness. There was the world’s longest closing ceremony (I only say this cuz it was nap time and I was really, really sleepy. Still didn’t get my nap and it’s past 9.) :-)
They took us out to the Three Pigs for BBQ. Very good stuff. But the best part was when Kat backed into the pole protecting the sign at the Three Pigs in Charlie’s van. I’ve since dubbed her Pole Kat (She’s been the most incredible liaison for me this weekend), and the name has stuck. We made a quick trip to B&N for Bob and his wife to get some books on Tenn. They didn’t carry my books. And I was tired and didn’t say anything. The guy did tell me the B&N at the mall had them, so I figure as long as the are in Memphis, it’s all good.
Came back to the hotel for a short stop into the Dead Dog party. But I couldn’t stay long. I’m so friggin’ sleepy and now I have to pack. Where the heck am I going to put all this art I bought? Oh, and the cutest T-shirts. Tell ya more about those later.
What the heck have you guys been doing? And why isn’t any one posting? Tell me what you did this weekend, and what you are reading….
