Yep, she sure did have fun with it!

For everyone that wasn't there to see it (presumably all but Becky and I): there was a large bouquet of flowers placed right in front of Anne's seat at one of the panels she did at DragonCon '99, partly blocking her face when she sat down (especially as she was up on raised dias and so would be looking down at everyone with little way to look over the flowers). When Anne sat down she acted startled by the bouquet, then picked up the vase and held it right in front of her face, then slowly moved it to one side and leaned to peer around it from the other side.

I've got a few pictures of it posted here (scroll down about 1/4 of the page).
