Just wanted to thank everyone for all the "well wishes."

I finally had a great week. As you know Andie got into Med school but Daniel also got a job for the summer and Keely (who has been having a ton of problems) is going to be ok and it's nothing serious with her back.

So, that's a relief and that's my update and there you go!!!

Dear everyone I met down at Dragon Con. You couldn't have been nicer or more gracious or more welcoming. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for embracing myself and Keely and Kathleen. It was a wonderful experience.

By the way, we're all taking bets on whether Trucco will actually contact me. Keely says "yes" (ridiculous optimist) but Kevin, Kathleen and I say "no way."

hahahaha


See ya. Love to all :))

so people...how's it going?? I'm not sure what all the events are because I'm constantly distracted around here but here's what I am up to.

Keely and I are getting there Thursday for sure. Of course, that's because we're meeting Keely's friend who lives there. No idea what I'm doing ...either going with Keely or meeting you guys. Other than that, Keely's other pal who's staying with us is meeting us Friday cuz she just started Med School and doesn't wanna miss school.

So, we're around until Monday afternoon with photo ops for the girls on Saturday and Sunday. What are you guys up to? When do you do all that tinhattery stuff??? I tots wanna be there for that? How do i get in touch with you? By twitter? Cell Phone???????

K, that's it I suppose. Oh yeah, we're staying at the Marriott.

ok people. So I've never been to D*C before and I just got a little book in the mail which is leaving me more confused than ever.

How do you know when the panels are? Is there a schedule? When do they post it? Where do the panels take place? I will have Keely with me and she will barely be on two feet (hopefully she will be) so I'm wondering how much walking there is.

I signed up for a photo op for Keely and her friend but have no idea how all this works.

Anybody? Hello?

any information would be helpful...

Lynn

I know we wanna do BSG and there's a Wheel of Time one we're doing as well. She loves Vampire Diaries but we will have to see. Also, fangirl hang out time????

so...I just sent in my money to go to D*C so IT'S OFFICIAL!! I'm taking Keely and her friend Kathleen down for the weekend. It'll be fun I hope.

Tara...you gotta go because you are the one who officially got Kathleen into fan fiction and then she got us into it so you see, you're a legend!!

She saw your Battlestar thing you did on Facebook and tracked you back so be there or else.

In other news ... well, i have no other news. Same old, same old.

Waiting to be fun again...hopefully that'll happen in my lifetime.
