So! That fannish dinner thing! Let's talk about it.

We tried to pick a few different kinds of restaurants to account for taste, but we're open to suggestions seeing as we really don't know where everyone's coming from. Right now, though, the Heartland Brewery is the heavy favorite for location and incomprehensible website malfunctions, and Shiller's Liquor Bar is the heavy favorite for sheer awesometasticness. That's right. It's so awesome I couldn't decide which suffix to use.

Anyway! Even if you don't know if you're gonna make it, please drop a comment and vote in the poll. We'd like to have a firm idea of what the hell we're planning to do by Tuesday so we can make a reservation.

Questions, comments, concerns?

Um, so, Shore Leave was pretty much amazing? Like you guys are surprised. I don't think I even have it in me to make a full report, because the entire thing was one big blur of me hugging everyone who asked for it and some people who didn't seem to want me near them at all or, you know, have any clue who I was, and then seeing David Hewlett fondle a guitar and having Kate Hewlett talk directly to us about her purse and Jewel Staite nearly brushing me with her bare legs that are long and gorgeous and fa;jgalkmgawfl and, okay, I'm breathing. Right. Yes.

I totally had a panic attack like that right before stepping into the room for a picture with David and having to touch him. NO HARDSHIP of course because he is even more fit in real life than I'd ever imagined and he smells like warm sheets, but I look somewhat like I've stuck my finger in an outlet, and he looks somewhat like he's not had a cup of coffee for three days.

Anyway, I met a bunch of amazing fangirls and bounced all around them like a hyperactive puppy for most of the weekend. [livejournal.com profile] exsequar, [livejournal.com profile] kashmir1, [livejournal.com profile] amberlynne, [livejournal.com profile] hebrew_hernia , [livejournal.com profile] tty63 and I shared a room - which, well, not much sleep occurred, what with the giggling and the episode watching - and it was fabulous. And on TOP of that, I had: [livejournal.com profile] ladycat777, [livejournal.com profile] darsynia, [livejournal.com profile] stillanne, [livejournal.com profile] grammarwoman, [livejournal.com profile] wolfshark, [livejournal.com profile] kimberweemee and [livejournal.com profile] kimberlyrdf (briefly because I was distracted by the Hew's...Hewlishiousness), [livejournal.com profile] emyrys, [livejournal.com profile] sam_gamgee (I'm so sorry for dragging Anne away like that, it was totally rude! I didn't realize you two were conversing and eeeek), and probably a bunch more that I'm forgetting because I suck or because I never asked your lj names. Please yell at me if you were there!

There were a few faces I thought I might have recognized, but my eyesight is notoriously horrible and badges are tiny, so I couldn't get up the guts to go say, "HI, ARE YOU ON MY FLIST! :D?" in a timely manner. But if you thought a girl in a red dress/colorful skirt might have looked at you and been a total ass about not saying something? It's because I'm a wimp, not because I don't love you. Wimp wimp wimp.

Cut for slight meanderings and a photo )

I'm sure we all said wonderful and stupid things that I'm forgetting, and I'm equally sure some of the things that came out of my mouth this weekend fell gracelessly and with much sound into the second category, but I can't think of them right now. So! I'm going to go steal some more of [livejournal.com profile] hebrew_hernia's gorgeous pics (which she will hopefully post [except, um, not the ones that feature my boobs]) and make icons out of them while I attempt fruitlessly to catch up on my flist. If you have an anecdote to share, pleeeaasse dooo. I want to hear!

...omg david hewlett. *squeak*

  • I went to a concert last night! My voice is all but gone! I have no idea how this happened, but I suspect the "Back in the USSR" cover had something to do with it. Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] pentapus being far too awesome for my health. ([livejournal.com profile] summertea was also, as usual, absolutely darling, and took being bopped on the head by balloons throughout the show with grace and aplomb. ♥) My only beef with the place besides the fact that my ears still ache a little? FOUR DOLLARS for a bottle of water. What. What.

  • What've you all been up to the past few days? I've been a horrible friend and haven't checked my flist much since Friday. I blame Constable Benton Fraser and his attractive cohort! I watched seasons three and four in something like thirty six hours and oh god, you guys.  [livejournal.com profile] villainny and [livejournal.com profile] chopchica warned me, but I had no idea what I was getting into. I mean, just look at them. ) I cannot even deal with how dorky and adorable and achy and in LOVE they are. And then, fjagoiajgm, ficccc. I've torn through everything by lamardeuse, resonant, cesperanza, china_shop, isiscolo, and shrift, and more names that I know just keep popping up! *flaps delightedly* Any of you who've seen this show and read fic in its fandom, do you have a favorite story you'd recommend? I have a three hour trip with no internet both ways and the fics I'm writing are almost done. Halp!

  • Last one, I promise: Shore Leave in, like, A DAY. Some of you will have no choice about meeting me and letting me hug you. Everyone else, I think I'll post my cell phone number tomorrow morning before I leave under flock and filter (tell me if you want in) in case anyone wants to get in touch with me. If you'd rather just surprise glomp me, there are a few events on the schedule I'm pretty sure I'm going to attend - nothing's really set in stone yet except for the Hewlett Panels and autograph sessions (well, and the fact that I'll be hanging off [livejournal.com profile] kashmir1's arm for most of the duration), but you should be able to find me easily enough; I think my name tag says Mel on it. If all else fails, look for the girl with the ridiculous donkey laugh who can't keep her hands to herself. Schedule! )

Despite many traveling glitches - one of which included being stuck in Penn Station at two in the morning with no train until four - and a really shaky start, I had a pretty fabulous Saturday. Went to the Met museum with [livejournal.com profile] summertea, [livejournal.com profile] sesame_seed, and [livejournal.com profile] emblem; proceeded to wander around making inappropriate comments about Cupid, dead people, and George Washington - possibly not in that order. Then we all trundled over to pick up [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock and [livejournal.com profile] ileliberte (after a quick scooch downtown for cream puffs), and went to have awesome, awesome pizza. Much talk of buttsecks and Snapes On An Astral Plane ensued at maximum volume. I love fangirls. ♥

In other news, this is how I feel about [livejournal.com profile] chopchica:


She's talked me down from the ledge, so I'm off to start the actual writing part of big bang now, yay! *does a shake and shimmy*
