I'm back - soon - *S*
Sorry for not updating at all ORC this weekend, but, as you can guess, it was very busy.

First things first: if you haven't already heard, I am now the contented owner of The One Jacket (aka, the much-worn, favorite leather jacket that Billy often wears). I went to the breakfast brunch that was held with Billy on Sunday, and they had several items donated by fans for silent auction there. Then a man showed up with 5 items donated by Billy: the script he used for "The Snowman", a square wooden saki "glass" signed by all the hobbits and a bright blue kimono-like jacket called a "hopay" [sic], both from the Toronto Premiere, a dark green t-shirt with a design on the front, spotted all over with black ink, with the word "Affliction" in white on the front, that was worn by Dom the previous night (*G*), and The One Jacket. I was just astounded that Billy was giving it up, despite missing buttons, a completely torn-up lining and all. I kept thinking "maybe he's just holding it for Billy?" But it went on the auction table.

They're boarding my plane! Anyway, I have it! And I had a great time here - talkto youall soon!

Thank you!!!!

Miranda was lovely - so different from our rowdy, informal boys. Dressed beautifully in black, with black heels, lovely smile, and so on. It'll take me a while to get to her in my photos, but I think you'll like a few of them. And quiet_moments did get her to sign a photo for you! *S*

You rock in ways that my mind cannot even begin to think to contemplate.

Seriously.

I think I shattered a glass somewhere squealing so loud when I heard you have that jacket now.

Now I can point at you and say "That's my Auntie Ros. She's got Billy Boyd's jacket." And then I'll be cool by proxi and people will stop throwing rocks at me in the street.

*happy sigh*

I'd sleep in it, that's what I'd do. And wear it all day every day.

Can't wait till you get back so I can quiz you on how things went (and I need to share M&C squee as well, and who better to do THAT with. *hugs you and your comments that are just the right mixture of insightfulness and squee*)

Man, can you tell I rather like you?

*squeezes you tight*

"Cool by proxy" - *L*!!! Does that mean you're crazy by proxy, too? No, I will NOT sleep in it (or with it)! But I will hug it once in a while - *S*.

Oooo - what M&C squeee????

Like a leather jacket - *S* - and I'm too big; hopefully I'll lose enough weight one day. It's certainly an incentive! *S* But a lot of fangirls at the lunch had fun posing with it.

*dies and is dead*

That was YOU???? I saw that jacket posted on TheOneRing.net here and thought "what a lucky person who can touch and smell and hold that jacket". Ok, now I need to make a pilgrimage to see you and to worship at the shrine of Billy's jacket.

I can't believe it either - although it's pretty damn near unwearable, so it does make sense. *G* Thank you!

*SQUEEE!* Thank you!

BTW - two people brought "Glen"'s to be signed - and I was so tempted to, myself, but it would have been tough to carry him and the camera/computer. So cute - not only did he sign his little purple shirt "Billy Boyd" (on the one I saw), but he wrote "Made in Japan" on his wrist! So glad I have one - *G*.
