Laptop sorted. Illustrated talk outlined. 2 panelists empaneled. Now to man the scanner.

YAY!! I am in Genua at present, the weather continues fine. I'm actually staying with the head of Homeland Security for Louisiana, so if that -ing hurricane comes this way I'll be the first to know. He seems to think it won't be a problem. :D :D

Excellent. I rerouted my flight through Denver just in case, and I've packed all my costumes (which is the bulk of it). I will be there Tuesday afternoon.

Have fun! I think there's an oyster bar near the hotel :D

Packed! (Well, probably mostly a bit packed. If it ain't packed, it ain't coming...)

Is it worth going to bed? Taxi will be here in 5 hours...
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

Home! Got out of Tennessee just as the storms were getting to the top of Florida. Tail winds took 1 hour off the transatlantic journey time. Traffic due to a crash on the M62 put it back on again.

But home. And a great Convention it was!

I've committed to doing a stamps program and was going to do an illustrated talk, but ConCom don't provide laptops. :?: :?: :shock: :roll: I love DW fans, but I'm not ready to hand around my more precious stuff, and honestly don't want to carry it on the airplane either.

Oook!

I didn't want to ask while you were preparing, or during the actual Con, but now that it's over - can those of us who couldn't get to the USA see what you did? Pretty please?
What ape? Oook! :book:
