I'm back  
Been in NOLA for wincon, and oh, a good time was had.

Today was my detox day, my feet still hurt from the walkies, but if you are interested, jenna_thorn_lj and that might not be the right link, but this is http://jenna-thorn.dreamwidth.org/570799.html wrote up Thursday and because I am a lazy slug, I am just linking you to her work.

I note that she has not covered the ensuing meander down Bourbon Street, the extremely graceful fashion in which I stepped INTO the gap in a grate and had to extract my heel, with some force. Note: Spike Heels and Bourbon street do not mix.

Nor did she address the Cat's Meow, which I believe falls under the Protection Plan of What Happens at Wincon Stays at Wincon, save for the fact that I love fangirls beyond the telling of it, and there were beads.

Liquor may have been involved. IDEK. FDSN.

wave_obscura is a goddess and you should never ever drink a Grenade.

Sounds like a wonderful time was had. I hope you made it to Cafe du Monde.

Honestly, we didn't, but I have dragged out my cookbooks. Morning Call was an excellent place for beignets, and I got to see Jo Peshek. Totally a win.

JO PESHEK! How is she?

She's fabulous, and I got to meet Lonnie, and go to Longue Vue!


I owe her a thank you note and stuff, they were so gracious to spend time with us!

Wiiiincoooon. I wish I had made my way over to Cafe du Monde, but I kept being distracted by tac vests.

So excellent meeting you! Thanks so much for your excellent discussion on the panel and for all the other hilarious conversations I got to have with you. Never a dull moment! Hope to see you in Dallas!

My throat is scratchy, I can't stop sneezing, and I can barely keep my eyes open and yet I'm still so happy to have gone.

We made it to Morning Call, which was so charmingly dinery, and our waiter wanted to be in our fic so bad.

Best thing about wincon, no conversation needs to be dull, someone will ALWAYS say something to make the other people fall over. Dallas, FTW.

I have a sore throat and a runny nose. Wouldn't have changed a thing, except maybe a little nap on Saturday.

*hugs you tight*

Regretfully I didn't drink a SINGLE Grenade. I hear they're pretty heinous. In a good way.

I don't know why you're calling me a goddess but THANKS <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
