Dude, Jairen, I'm buying you a beer just for all your help with the tour. (and I'll be ABLE to! HAHAHA!)
Hey everyone, looking to meet new friends and catch up with old ones. C3 was a blast and I can't wait for C4.
Rach!! Whoa, what you doing here? You know I'll be buying you a drink for your birthday! C4 will be fun so will CC next month!
Hi, I'm single, and I'm 18. This is going to be my first Sw celebration. I'm sooooo excited. I just reserved a room only 1 mile from the convention center so now I'm bouncing off the wall!!!
P.S. I didn't know if we all were posting pix of ourselves, but you can fin me at http://www.myspace.com/psychohennabitch

That was a lot of fun last night, and Paulie got to speak with The great Anne McCaffery herself (I got to shake her hand earlier during the book signing session). And even earlier in the day, while at the Locus Brunch, Neil Gaiman handed me a thingy.
Well I am 39, single and finally looking forward to making my first Celebration. Looking to meet some new friends. Everyone is welcome to view my pics, interests and profile on myspace. http://www.myspace.com/74091398
*bites tongue* Not gonna say it... nope no way...
LOL, woofer, you had to be there.
They were having a Hawaiian t-shirt contest at the Locus magazine brunch I attended Saturday morning. Neil Gaiman was judging and Connie Willis was moderating. She was talking about the prizes and referred to the consolation prizes as ?thingies?. Well, writers and publishers can be a dirty minded bunch. So someone in the audience latched right on to the innuendo implied in the word ?thingie?. jokes were made and Connie blushed.
I did not win so I walked up to the podium to receive one of the ?thingies?. Connie Willis was looking away from me, so Neil Gaiman turned and grabbed a ?thingie? and handed it to me. So I can truly say, without prevarication, that Neil Gaiman handed me a thingie. Heh-heh
Oh, the person who won the contest received a poster signed by Neil Gaiman, the thingies were actually paper fruit on large toothpicks that are used as food decorations
Was it a cherry?
well, um, this will be disappointing , but
mine was a lemon
My oh my.
He better hope that word doesn't get out to the fans.
Neil Gaiman's thingie is a lemon.
(Perhaps you should look up the fan fic term for 'lemon' before you go any farther....
Lucky you and Neil
Hey people. I've not been to past Celebration events, but I'm not missing this one for the world. I'm going with my best friend and it will be awesome. I'll be 23 by the time C4 rolls around (my birthday is in April). I enjoy collecting, costuming and geeking out. Unfortunately I think I'm slightly more obsessive than my friends who also share a love of SW.
Do any of the men here like to dance?
And if you do, are you afraid to ask a woman to dance and if so why?
Whenever my friends and I go out to dance, the guys always hang back looking like they want to dance; they tap there feet, sway a bit and rap their hands against the table to the beat of the music. But they never get up and ask any of us women to dance. It doesn?t matter if we are gorgeous, plain or in between, they never seem to get up the nerve. So you will often see clumps of us girls out on the dance floor dancing together.
But I would rather be dancing with a guy
As one of those men who taps his feet, sways slightly to the rythymn, and would dance, but is far to embarassed at the thought of it
Oh, and it doesn't matter what the women look like, we men never ask, because you all travel in packs
Don't worry we don't bite, well, most of us don't, at least not too hard
So do we dare take it upon ourseves to leave the security of the pack and go ask one of y'all to dance?
I think we are just as afraid that the men will so no if we do
I used to have a badge that read, "I want to Dance with you, not have your baby!
