Damn - first let me say I'm sorry I didn't get to meet Jeni of Escapist Scrawl, Hasteur, or Zerena Hoofs. And I know there are others whom I'm going to say "Sh*T!" when I realize I didn't get a chance to meet them. Arv, just glad you were hanging with Navi cause I was being such a dork.
But - (and I don't know what happened to my photos on my camera and am trying desperately not to panic...cause you know, if there ain't no screenshot, it didn't happen.)
...I did meet: (and the understatement does not begin to express my joy)
Vidyala: We talked for a long time, and met Voss, too: just simply adore this young woman. She is amazing.
Matticus: nice guy
Lisa Poisso: a writer I've long admired and really appreciated talking to
Elizabeth Harper --awesome WoW Insider writer - so incredibly warm and gracious
Fimlys of Twisted Nether (who said maybe I could get a spot, but we'd talk about Navi - lol! See Navi, no one cares about random Draenei shamans, everyone wants to know about Navi!)
Apple Cider Mage: ACM- you rock. Simple as that.
And getting a chance to know my GM/RL Logtar better was great: he is truly a wonderful man, and feel so lucky to have landed in that guild: credit goes to you, Turk. Log: now go update that blog.
Looking at this - you see what my focus was, of course? WRITERS. Meeting these folks inspired me, and well, damn.
Damn, that was cool. So cool...witness this moment: I'm kind of speechless.
Now staying at my in-laws' place about 40 minutes away meant doing the 'normal' Blizzcon things, like hanging out in hotel lobbies, etc. was not meant to be. That was the downside. The upside is we went out for Mexican food and got to drink beer and then soak in the hot tub (yes, I fell asleep. No, I did not drown. I am not writing this from a watery grave. I can sleep in hot water. Just one of my many talents.) So now I'm ready to hit the road again, praying I didn't catch my sister's-in-law cold. I'm packing up a lot more than dirty laundry and souvenirs: I got my wishes granted, and that's all I wanted.
PS Navimie: next time I'm putting a bell on you.
