Hullo! and ORC
Okay - can I everybody that I will see at ORC please raise your hand? *S* Also, let me know how and where I'll get to see you, such as if there are any get-togethers planned. I'll be at the Sheraton, and quiet_moments will be my roommate. I'll be in C-21. I'll be arriving Friday morning (noon?), and leaving Monday morning.

I missed it on the Golden Globes, but I hear that Hugh Laurie won in his category - yay!

Any Dom sightings? ETA: Golden Globes spoiler: LOST WON!!!! WHOOOOOOOT!!!!! And Dom was on-stage - yay!!!!

I was out of town this weekend, at a surprise 75th (!) birthday party for my Dad. He was very surprised - and I was very happy to see it! *G*

My last day of work last Friday went well. Everybody was very kind, with many "You'r a great person to work with" comments, as well as a few "I wish I could leave, too" - *L*!

Today, I slept late and am a little out of it, but am getting into a schedule tomorrow and getting ready for ORC.

Dang! Wish I could be there, if only to see you and Rakshi and bunches of other folks (. . . like a hobbit or two . . . ) Have a fantastic time!

As for the job, remember the old addage: for every door that closes, another (better) one opens.

I will and I'm sure she'd love it!

Wish you were, too.

Hey - in case I decide to stay an extra day and hang around LA, where was the place you stayed? And wasn't it near some really good movie theatre and Amoeba records? Do you remember any info? Or good tours to take? Thanks!

*heeheehee!*

But - was it just me, or did he sound a bit Americanized? Not quite as British as he used to? And the poshness was all tongue-in-cheek. If you'd like to see a clip (and it's lovely!), go over to indeedsir.

:P!!! Perhaps I should put it in quotes: "schedule"? *G*

Piccies? Still working on the Christmas backlog, now that I have time.

Bit nervous about ORC; perhaps I need some coaching from a Con regular? (actually, you're so good at Cons, can I call you a Con Artist? *G*) Being an introvert, and tending to think that other people will feel the way I would feel, I tend to feel embarrassed when I go up for an autograph. I mean, the guests are paid well and all, but I still feel like I'm taking up their time, I'm the hundredth person in line, what could I possibly say, and so on. So, what do you (and pooh, if she's reading this) tend to think/do/get in the frame of mind for when you do this? You and pooh seem to always bring out the best in the people you meet for autographs. Do you try to be bouncy? flirty? sincere? other? Hope this question makes sense - *L*!
