saturday aftermath  
Posted my Con Report with Michael Trucco, Nicki Clyne, Michelle Forbes,and Colin Cunningham here from yesterday's day o fannish fun.

Note to self: when using a computer only a bit bigger than a sidekick, it behooves you to not actually WRITE anything. Because MY GOD, I think I had more typos than actual words in the two pages or so that I managed to write yesterday on hubby's netbook. I've been correcting it this evening, and even stuff I thought I typed correctly was screwed up (and I knew a lot of it was bad. ETA: and also SMART QUOTES! ARGH!). And also, and I'm sure some of you can relate - writing fanfic featuring the actor, who right then is walking down the hall toward you, is VERY SURREAL and a bit off-putting, actually.

Speaking of, I picked up my photo op picture with Trucco, which I like a lot; he looks cute and I look like a happy dork. Which is true enough! Though I look kind of sallow - should've used powder when I'm getting photographed wearing black under bright lights.

It was almost a THING to pick it up though, since they stupidly put the photo op pics from yesterday in the same room as the photo taking and didn't want me to go in while they were prepping with whoever was in there. So I ask if one of them could just go get it, since hubby is waiting in the hotel loading zone and can't stick around until the photo ops are done (like they wanted me to). And then she couldn't find it, and I'm all -- it's me, with Trucco, wearing a black C-Bucs outfit, there's only ONE OF THOSE. But it was there after all. *clutches*

Tomorrow we are off to JPL Open House, for some Real Life Space Fannish-ness.

hee. Yeah, I've tried to write on my Palm Pilot before. It can be challenging.

Glad you finally got your picture.

I love tiny computers because they're so cute, but for writing they suck. Hubby's blackberry has this RIDICULOUSLY tiny keypad, which is the most useless thing ever. He thinks voice recognition is going to be how we get rid of miniscule buttons, but that won't work for writing fic. At least not for me, and certainly not in public!
