Dallas draws near! I feel my life ebbing away, as it always does when some “future event” draws closer and closer.

Wondering if the SyFy interviews will have had any effect on the fans. Less likely to be expecting to meet the Great Satan, perhaps? (Potential downside: Having been shown to be not so terrible as my reputation, I might have to deal with some people who get TOO chummy!)

I have my ticket for Friday! I have just compiled a small stack to get signed. I had not planned on attending until I saw that you were listed as a guest.

Yes, I know it's been years since I posted here. I'm kind of surprised my account is still here (and that I remembered the password).

...that I remembered the password.

•••

PASSWORD1?

I should mention, I will have my usual signing limit, maximum ten per day, per person (or family group). Free, of course, also as usual.

Seems like they’ve got me doing only one “Spotlight” panel in Dallas, unless I am reading their site wrong.

I am local and just purchased my ticket along with the special panel on Sunday.  I am so excited.  I get to "meet" two of my childhood icons.

I'd be driving up to Dallas from Austin for the con, but I'll be out of town (way out.... London, UK) that weekend. Have a great time, JB!

WEDNESDAY

The process begins--with me heading to the nearest UPS office to ship my folding portfolio/table to Big D. No way I'm going to even TRY to take it on a plane with me!

Here's the updated version of my little sign. Hopefully I've plugged all the loopholes, this time!!

THURSDAY

Severe storms, tornado and flash flood warnings. Do I want to fly INTO this?

Car arrives at 11:00 for transport to JFK. Going to be watching the news right up till then. Don’t want to find myself stuck on the ground in New York or, worse, diverted mid flight!

My @always dependable@ weather app is now showing cloudy in Dallas when I am set to arrive. This morning it was giving me animated lightning!

If I was the only one involved I’d cancel, but there are too many people expecting me to be there. Hope Bill doesn’t decide to give it a miss!!
