*in awe* LJ's back! HURRAH!!!! *G*
First of all, THANK YOU to all of you for the cheerup emails I got after feeling so down this morning; I love you all, and you were all so wonderful to me - (((((((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))))))).

I feel much better now! It was a day full of laughs, and I think I finally hit my "convention stride" today, after a belated start.

Here's the 25-cent wrap-up: Dom was fun and relaxed, Billy was sweet, funny and clever, Elijah was beautiful and - yes - couldn't get through the talk without at least one mention of bodily functions - *L*!, Sean was ever-so-scruffy, be-hatted and be-spectacled and his family was wandering the Con!, JRD was looking SO good and completely relaxed and recovered from his accident of a year ago (right?), and Charlie Ross, the One Man LOTR was HILARIOUSFUNNYOMGMYSIDEWERESPLITTING!!! *L*! Between JRD and Charlie Ross today, it was easy to feel good!

And thank you, Ms. Abandonada, Lavender Took, Spookys Toy and Voontah, for meeting up with me, Quiet Moments for quick little visits, and Entmaiden (from the Line Party - yay!) and Whisper Kat for being such good seatmates, Serai for finally getting to meet you, Beizy for a quick hug and hi, and Daisy (Leah) for chatting after her film was shown (CONGRATS!!! - darn it, what was the name of it, though? Lord of the Bags?).

As you all know, I so missed my Pony Pals and the other folks I've been to Cons with; it just wasn't the same without you all. But don't feel bad for missing this: you know we only remember the good parts, and it always sounds better when somebody else got to enjoy it, but the signings were, in general, all much nicer at other Cons, as were Sean and Elijah's talks (just didn't get good questions, and they weren't "on" as much as the others). Dom's, Billy's, and JRD's talks, though, were great fun, because they were all very up for their talks - very "on" as actors and people. And the conditions for photographing with available light (no flash) were great - I was in the 3rd row, just to stage left, although it was still pretty tough. And Lilith was on the other side - so I got one side of their faces, and she got the other! YAY! So I raked in a LOT of photos and will be posting them throughout the week.

So - on to the photos! Here are links to the full and best of albums for Dom and Billy (Sean, Elijah, and JRD will follow next, and then photos of the lesser-known folks will follow throughout the week):

[ETA: Know of a fansite that would like these? Go ahead and tell them for me if you would; I'm not too familiar with many fansites and would really appreciate it. Just tell me in a comment, if you don't mind. Thanks!]

(((((((((Ros)))))))))

I'm glad to hear that you had a good time after all. If there would not be this damn ocean and so much country between me and California, I would have been there to cheer you up yesterday morning ;)


But you know, that I want to know EVERYTHING about Sean and Elijah ... about what bodily functions did Elijah talk this time? I think, he love to do that ... bad habits die hard (thank God for that in this case).

I can hardly wait for your Sean-Elijah-Pictures.

And now I'm off to work - still THE book ;)

Hugs
Cat

wonderful pics as always, and am desperately waiting for a certain other hobbit's pics;)

Glad you had some fun, and wish I could've been there to annoy you! But hey 4 weeks and 3 days;)

Yes! He did a solid, robust, well-done version of a folk song - lessee - the one about "digging up London for gold", which was actually about the Irish coming over to England for a better life and being put to work on the menial jobs. Do you know it? He's a great, funny guy. He's the one who did "Bogens" (or "Bogans"?), about the 3 slackers who try to get a job on LOTR - it was good - *L*!

PS - did Dom talk about "Lost" must? I am so in love with that show. It is pretty much the only thing I get a chance to watch on TV these days.

SQUEE! Me, too! *G*

How are you, today? Did you get a chance to relax? I was lucky - the 110 was smooth sailing - which was good because BOY does LAX have high security - whew! *G*

And it was 8 degrees F in Indy. *G*

I know - I was so lucky with the seat. I didn't purchase one until Billy was added, so I'm a bit surprised! Thanks - *S*.
