What a roller coaster of a weekend. I go down to London to have a few drinks in a pub with a few mates and end up attending at Convention with these two guys (whoever they are)

Hugs you right back.

I'm still on cloud nine. I'll post lots and lots more later - probably tomorrow. Short version - I was not expecting to be at the Con. I wsa hoping to get one of the Saturday night tickets. Then a full one fell into my lap at virtually no cost thanks to the friends from the CDS board.

Great picture, P!!!

Thanks for sharing. Of course now I'm green with envy since you got to do the discworld thing AND the Halloween con.

And just who are the two dorks you are with in the picture again???

Same two dorks as in your icon. Except the blonde one seems to have had a bad hair day in my photo.

You've every right to be envious. I stood at the hotel window on Saturday night. It overlooked the Thames and there was a firework display across the river. I just savoured the moment and thought how extremely lucky I was. I must have done something really good in a past life - the Karma had come around again.

Have you got a copy of this month's SFX btw? It has an article on the Discworld Con. towards the back. It makes very good reading. I'll transcribe it if you like and post it somewhere. Are you reading any of the boards? Give CDS a visit if only for the report of that commentary - I forgot what the boys said about the looks into the bag, but both times it was priceless.

Colour me green!

Hi Lorne.

I'll tell the story in my next post, along with a link to my Con pics. Suffice to say, I'm still in the clouds.

OMG you did it!!!!!!

You must be over the moon :)

So happy for you - and a teensy bit jealous ;)

I feel incredibly privileged and lucky and savoured every single moment. You can tell from my face in that pic, can't you? I'd just resisted the temptation to go all Northern on David and say You not stoppin' then? Take yer coat off. You'll not feel the benefit when you out.

Gosh - you must have thought all your christmas's had come at once - what a lovely photo - you look gorgeous in your blue shirt which makes your beautiful blue eyes even bluer -no wonder you got a compliment - but where's his blonde hair? - boo hoo - he just doesn't look like Spike any more does he - maybe he doesn't want to. What did MWNN think about your new friends? J.

Made some lovely new friends among the girls from CDS. One who lives about 10mins from Mum has offered me the use of her cottage at weekends and holidays. (she's a Primary School Head)I'd never had a girlie weekend before so the whole thing came as a very pleasant surprise.
