Well, this has been a long time in coming. WriterCon was a great experience and a fun weekend, but also a very tiring one. I was pretty much flattened for the first half of the week and then, of course, I had to get back to the cod.

Yes, mad, last-minute packing fit. Agh! I know I'm going to forget something. Must check the lists that people gave [livejournal.com profile] poshcat. They thought of everything!

Yes, I'm bringing my laptop. I've only had it for a couple of months, but I'm already surgically attached to it, so whether or not I was going to bring it was pretty much a rhetorical question. Camera is packed, as is the cable to connect the two, so expect pictures!

Um, um, what have I forgotten? There must be something. There always is. ::panics::

My dad's picking me up to take me to the airport bright and surly tomorrow morning. Have I mentioned that I'm not a morning person? Ugh.

I'll be arriving in Atlanta around 4 pm. If anyone's looking for me, there are some pics of me posted here. Also, I'll be wearing a red blouse and off-white capris. Red and white--how very Canadian! ::is patriotic:: Also, I'm connecting through Toronto--Air Canada flight 1004 leaves around 2 pm. I'll be meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] shadowscast then as she's going through Toronto too.

Ooo--gotta go sew a button. I knew there was something I had to do.

WriterCon is here! Yay! ::throws confetti::

To laptop or not to laptop: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The pains and achings of lugging it around,
Or to take arms against...

Er, scratch that. I have to get on a plane and cross a border on Thursday--better not mention taking arms against anything.

Should I bring it?

The Writercon organizers requested that I read an excerpt from either Evanesco (Lorne!fic) or All Set Down (Giles!fic).

Er, any opinions on which one--and which part--I should choose?

Hee! How cute is this mood theme icon? I've never chosen "intimidated" before.

I just got an email asking me to read one of my fics at the Sunday afternoon Writercon Author Readings. Yay! And eep! And YIKES!

::panics::

Somebody pass the Xanax.

Plane tickets are booked! Whee! And I used Air Miles, so they were really cheap.

[livejournal.com profile] sunnyd_lite and [livejournal.com profile] redeem147 - I'm not on your flight going down, but I'll be with you on the way home. :-)

So I discovered tonight that I have enough Air Miles to get a flight to WriterCon! Woot! Must call tomorrow and see if I can use them.

(Yes, [livejournal.com profile] sunnyd_lite, I got your message. If I can use my Air Miles to get onto your flight, that'll be extra cool!)

What are people using as their badge name on WriterCon badges? LJ usernames? Does your real name go on there too? I want to register, but I'm not sure what to put on my badge.

ETA: I followed [livejournal.com profile] poshcat's advice and went with my username. Look for the short redhead with the chest that reads DeSoto_HIA873. :-)

My father came through his surgery fine. He was in recovery for a long time as they gave him a spinal and it took several hours for him to regain feeling below his waist. The surgeon said it all went very well and he'll likely be released from hospital later today or tomorrow. My sister and I will be on babysitting duty after he gets home until we figure out how much mobility he has.

Next up: My poor uncle, who is having one of his kidneys removed next week (gulp).

WriterCon!
