We're finally home, and just in time I read for LJ to be down half of tomorrow. So catching up probably isn't going to happen soon. I suppose it's time to dust off my Insane Journal.

The con was fun, and I am so tickled that everyone enjoyed Jon's presence. I knew he'd be a hit! Isn't he awesome? Now you know why I've been such a fan of his for so many years!

It was great seeing so many of you, wish I could have seen more of you though. It seemed really hard to meet up with people this time around, and I ended up not being able to say goodbye to so many of you. Feel bad about that.

Need to get to bed now, work in a few hours. More most likely later on

I missed your birthday!!!!
And that is unforgettable. But, just to try and be forgiven anyway, you could go here ;)
Also, welcome back!

Thank you :)

Jon was fantastic! Very good con. Now, LA in April and San Antonio 2010. We went out on the strip Sunday night and missed saying good-bye to some people. Sorry I woke you up.

Looking forward to 2010! Wish I'd had a chance to spend more time with you, but it seemed impossible this time around to find/keep up with anyone. I'll try and do better in San Antonio :)
I will call her George: Hogan - High Fivestrangevisitor7 on November 18th, 2008 01:51 pm (UTC)
Yay for being back home - so much catching up to do. So frustrating that LJ is down today and nervous it won't come back right LOL.

I think I have an IJ - have to go find it. [g]

Found it becasue you friended mine IJ way back when - thanks! I have no energy to update it too but at least I know it's there is I need it.

Missed you muchly! I have plot bunnies to share! And, the 2010 PWFC con's going to be in San Antonio!! WHEEEEEEEEEEEE! What do I have to do to convince you to come? [bats eyelashes alluringly]
I will call her George: Methos (2)strangevisitor7 on November 18th, 2008 08:04 pm (UTC)
Wh00t - I think I could swing San Antonio - Visit the family and then swing up to the con. I could make that work. same time next year?
Ithithildyn on November 18th, 2008 08:06 pm (UTC)
Actually, in two years. They're not doing one next year. As for when, I don't know yet what time of year they're looking at. Will let you know when I know :) We'd have a blast!!
I will call her George: Methosstrangevisitor7 on November 18th, 2008 08:12 pm (UTC)
okay 2 years - but I hope to meet you before then!! if not then. going on the calender - I will make this happen
I will call her Georgestrangevisitor7 on November 18th, 2008 08:30 pm (UTC)
*smooshes you* missed you so much. Are you free for chatting now?
layla_aaronluscious_words on November 18th, 2008 07:53 pm (UTC)
Yeah, what do we have to do to convince you to go to San Antonio? *bats eyelashes*
I will call her George: Richie Smilestrangevisitor7 on November 18th, 2008 08:08 pm (UTC)
not much - becasue the family is in Houston - could totally combine trips. I think this is a real possibility
layla_aaronluscious_words on November 18th, 2008 08:14 pm (UTC)
*happy dances* Woot! That would be awesome. However, in the mean time, you and I are such close neighbors, we must set up a time to get together at least once or twice or more times between now and San Antonio. :D
I will call her George: Methos (2)strangevisitor7 on November 18th, 2008 08:21 pm (UTC)
Absolutely. Cincinnati right. I meet friends at the outlets on 71 all the time. Is that an easy drive for you?
layla_aaronluscious_words on November 19th, 2008 02:57 am (UTC)
Yep, Cincinnati. The outlets might be fun, but between here and there I wouldn't mind a trip up Columbus way. We have plenty of time.
layla_aaronluscious_words on November 18th, 2008 03:03 pm (UTC)
*pounces and hugs you* It was FANTASTIC meeting you and ninjababe!!! I didn't that Jon got his directing start with Forever Knight...now I must, MUST go get those DVDs. :)

He directed a few of my fave LFN eps, which helped give me a clue to his work. *mutters under breath* Haven't watched 24, but will be watching the new season. He was a HUGE hit, and I was thrilled to meet him.

I've also got to find a source for QoS because I'd really like to see it. It has two of my favorite ingredients - Val P and Peter W. ;)
Ithithildyn on November 18th, 2008 07:42 pm (UTC)
Yes, he did! I met him the first time something like 11 years ago at a Forever Knight event. It's really wonderful to see where his career is now. He truly deserves it.

You looking for hard copies of QoS, or any kind?

It was awesome meeting you and your hubby!

layla_aaronluscious_words on November 18th, 2008 07:46 pm (UTC)
I agree he deserves the accolades and the success. Listening to him talk earned him respect and admiration from me. And as much as I love the other guests, Jon was the one who prompted me to get up to ask a question. :)

I'm looking for any kind, although I'd love to find DVD copies. Still, I'll take what I can get just to watch Jon and David's work, plus see Peter and Val onscreen together. ;)

I was scoping for the pair of you because of all the people, I wanted to be sure I caught up with you two. :D
layla_aaronluscious_words on November 18th, 2008 07:52 pm (UTC)
Well, I will try this a second time...

I agree that Jon deserves the accolades and success. He's certainly earned it, along with my respect and admiration. Ironically, as much as I love the other guests, it was Jon that got me up to answer a question. Go figure. :)

I'll take any kind of copy on QoS, but I'd love to find some DVDs. I'd like to see Jon and David's work on it, plus Peter and Val onscreen? Count me in. ;)

I was tickled pink to meet you guys. You were two I knew I definitely had to find and meet at the con. There were others and some I missed, but you two were on the list of must meet. :D *hugs*

PS - What's the word on the kitty babies?

Edit: Damn LJ. Posting comments twice. *sigh* Oh well, now you know how much I love you guys. ;)

Mum says they're doing fine :)
I will call her George: Methosstrangevisitor7 on November 18th, 2008 08:09 pm (UTC)
so jealous that you met Ith and Nin. I must go next year!!
layla_aaron: A sexy Welshman ~ Peter Wingfieldluscious_words on November 18th, 2008 08:16 pm (UTC)
They are awesome. *squishes them* I had to make sure I met them. And I hope you do make it to San Antonio. We've already started our plotting and planning to finagle finances, etc.
Mischief: Peterem_kellesvig on November 18th, 2008 03:29 pm (UTC)
Welcome home! I"m glad you had a good time but I missed you!
Ith: Methos - Cheersithildyn on November 18th, 2008 07:43 pm (UTC)
Missed you too! [HUGS]
Jennifer/Gail: HL_Methos_Helm_happylferion on November 18th, 2008 09:41 pm (UTC)
It was so nice to meet you and Nin in person!

I am hoping to get to San Antonio too.
Ithithildyn on November 18th, 2008 10:12 pm (UTC)
It was great meeting you! Even if I did stalk you into the ladies room :)
anya2112anya2112 on November 18th, 2008 10:30 pm (UTC)
So glad you ladies got home safe and sound.

It was wonderful sitting up and chatting on Sunday...although, I'm not sure if I was making much sense at the end ( damn burbon)!!

Ithithildyn on November 18th, 2008 11:36 pm (UTC)
Hee!! We had a great time too. Maybe it dind't end up being a Dead Dog party, but at least it qualified as a puppy version [g]
Beckybeeej on November 18th, 2008 10:48 pm (UTC)
It was good seeing you guys! I'm sorry though that I didn't get to spend any quality time with you. Gotta admit though, I don't think I'd trade being Jon's keeper for anything, even though it kept me busier than usual. ;)
Ith: Art - Haida Maskithildyn on November 18th, 2008 11:40 pm (UTC)
See now why I'm always singing Jon's praises!? Isn't he the best?

I wish we'd seen more of all of you, but I think it's extra hard in a building that size to try and meet up and visit. But I will always cherish the memories of spending an hour with you and your 'TV Boyfriend' [g]

Beckybeeej on November 19th, 2008 02:45 am (UTC)
Jon is totally made of awesome! And I wish my TV boyfriend had been in a better episode last week. That one was pretty lame. But if one has to endure a lame episode, it's best to do it in the company of fangirls. *g* I'm glad you joined us!
Black Wolfdet_munch on November 20th, 2008 12:43 am (UTC)
sounds like a good time was had, glad you're back
