WorldCon 2008 - Thursday, August 7th

Thursday - hmmm...
I started the day with a Peach Paradise (all fruit, no sugar added, no dairy) and an apple pretzel. I don't usually do jamba juices, but when the blood sugars are low...

At 10am, I was in line to get Name of the Wind signed by Patrick Rothfuss. He asked us to let us know which character was our favorite and he'd sign the book with an appropriate quote. I picked Bast =)

I missed the Carrie Vaughn reading =(

I was going to go the Creating Mythos panel at 11:30 and the Return of the King panel at 1pm, but I skipped both of them. I think I did the Dealer's room and the Art show. I bid on several pieces by Peri Charlifu, but I didn't win anything. Rats!

I think this was the day I had a hot dog for lunch. Chatted with Sarah and Shawna.

At 2:30, I got several books signed by msagara. She asked me if I were Joey's Debbie??? She also signed one of them with "For Debbie - who is not as evil as Joey" Little does she know *hee*

Then I went to Steve and Sharon's reading. They read from Duainfey, and the first chapters of the Agent of Change, Conflict of Honors, Carpe Diem, Plan B and Local Custom =)

I then did the very quick walk back to the Sheraton and caught part of Paul Estin's concert. More please =) Joey had a very short concert because he wanted to get back to CCC in time for Kathy Mar's GOH concert. I did get to hear Lullaby for a Weary World!!! He did the husband song which I'd never heard before. Did he do Ruby Wine here?

Another fast walk back to the CCC for Kathy Mar's concert. She didn't sing Velveteen Rabbit, but she did a whole bunch of other favorites. I heard VR in another panel *squee*

Maggiano's for dinner - t'was me, Kev, Christopher and Mat. Kev and I split the spinach salad and the eggplant parmesan. Yum!!!!

We got back too late to hear Brooke and Dr. Filk's concert. Yet another RATS!

I went to the FoL party and was there pretty much the entire evening. Shawna, Kev, Mat and I spent lots of time peeling off the backing of the Tree and Dragon stickers. By the end of the evening, I could unpeel one very quickly! Chatted with lots of folk - spreading the word of Liad and all *g* Helped clean up and left Elaine with the 3 remaining people - the jokes were getting bad and I didn't have any energy left. Elaine did =) I think it was close to 3am?
