Thank the Gods, finally got my HP Career Fair Fic in--and like 8 days late as well. I love extensions. I love lovely mods that give extensions to hapless first-timers like myself. I just hope my person likes their story.I feel good about it. Not great, but good. I don't think I'd ever feel great about something I'd written. In any case, it's done!

I've been gone for a minute because I just got back from four days of Dragon*Con and every minute of it was awesome. Yes, even waiting in the three hour line for the Venture Bros panel and the Patrick Stewart Panel. It was all worth it. Edward James Olmos couldn't make it to the BSg panel, but Colonel Tigh totally called him up, put him on speaker and we all got to say hello. It was geekiness at its best, and I can't wait to do it all again next year. Pictures soon!

So I'm pretty stoked about Dragon*Con coming up; serious talk. It still blows my tiny mind that such an awesomely big and wonderful con, covering pretty much every genre and subject I adore, is pretty much in my backyard. People come from all over to be a part of this, and alls I gotta do is take the train. It's indeed a blessing. Last year I only got to go one day, since I was on a cruise. I had so much fun just that ONE day, I knew when I did it again I'd have to do it big. So, this year, I'm going all four days, I will wait in what promises to be a disgustingly long line to get my badge, I will dress up, and will listen to science track panels, scifi panels, and fantasy panels. and I will squeal when I spot William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. Not to mention Gaeta, Ianto Jones, and Admiral Adama. Also Ben Browder. Also---Jean Luc Picard. Also---well pretty much everyone they've got lined up this year.

My mom laughed when I expressed my joy over her getting my ticket for me over the phone, but she also understands, being a loyal fan of the scifi/syfy channel herself.

Plus my first best friend EVER will be there as well, and we'll get to see each other again for the first time in Lord knows how many years--17 or so, I think. In any case, tons of fun. I went to the HP Yule Ball last year with the main squeeze and he actually had a good time. It was an awesome people watching activity, and there was a pretty ferocious ol' Voldemort there. This year, it'll be all of that but TIMES 4!

Freakin' just. Good times.
