The fannish fun continues. I got home tonight to a package waiting for me. The package was from my wonderful cousins and co-owners of Mysterious Galaxy, Maryelizabeth Hart ([ profile] allaboutm_e) and her darling hubby, Jeff Mariotte.

In the envelope:

A ginormous Tyvek CW tote bag from Comic-Con 2008--one side touting our boys from Supernatural, the other touting Smallville.

Inside the bag, 2 Middleman pins.

Need I say I totally, utterly squeed?

I LOVE being a fangrrrl!!!

Again, thanks so much, cuz!

ETA: Oh yeah, I got my Season 3 Supernatural DVDs, too. So Yay again!

The con was fantastic - kudos to the concomm!!

Better reports than mine can be found on the LJ comm (as I'm totally d.e.d. DED!) - but I had a fabulous time, despite coming home with the Con Crud.

Meeting the international contingent ([ profile] lamardeuse, [ profile] calathea, [ profile] engenda, [ profile] china_shop and others) was beyond great. Getting to meet folks whose journals I've been reading, but hadn't met in person was just as great: (note, I will so probably forget someone, so please excuse!) - [ profile] astolat, [ profile] cesperanza, [ profile] pearl_o, [ profile] aukestrel etc. (see, I *told* you my brain is gone!!)

[ profile] qe2, my darling sweetness, it was so fabulous to spend so much time with you!! Ditto for the rest of the fangrrls I hung out with. Shay, Beth, Raffe, and the usual suspects - it's not a con without you guys!

Friday was a blur, as was Saturday, punctuated by the SPN panel modded by [ profile] estrella30 and co-modded by me. (And by co-modded, I mean sitting there pointing at people to talk)

I was able to get on an earlier flight on Sunday and get home by 1:00, which was very good, since the crud was already beyond creeping and into full-blown ickiness.

Spent Monday sleeping and then today at work, with the sore throat, full-blown cold mode.

I can't wait until this weekend, so I can sleep. ::g::

SOOO behind on LJ and other stuff.

ETA: OMG, how on earth did I miss meeting [ profile] mmmchelle and [ profile] crysothemis - I know you all were there, I read your posts. I suck at fangrrling.

A very happy birthday to [ profile] synecdochic, she of the lovely writing, and a happy 40th to Joe Flanigan, he of the...well, just lovely. ::g::

::chickwriter debuts new icon in honor of the occasion::

Go here for more Joe.*

In other news: TGIF! - which is a really good thing, because the last couple of nights have been plagued with insomnia. Wednesday night was all about work stress. Last night, this a.m. - jeebus! The muse struck with a vengeance. Nothing to do with my book-in-progress, but a wee snippet of a thing that will be unveiled tomorrow in celebration of another set of twin birthdays. (yes, you know who you are)

Now that I've been up for 2.5 hours already, it's 8:00 a.m. and nearly time to go to work. OMG, COFFEE!
