Cheryl WorldCon Pictures

I've got my first set of pictures published! These are all the photos I took at the con. I'll be reporting on some specifics of the con in time....

I'll also have a second set of pictures eventually, which are my scenic shots of California and some shots out the plane window.

Enjoy!

There's two more pictures at the end of the WorldCon pictures (somehow I managed to misfile them with the scenic shots), and now the Scenic Shots are up too!

Awesome photos, Cheryl....but I am gonna be a little P.I.T.A.

That's the USS Constallation, not the Enterprise
I think you're missing some names on a few pictures...and I can't figure out who the last person is!
WHY DIDN'T YOU BUY THE HATCHLING??????

Yeah, that's been pointed out that I can't read I'll get it fixed soon.

I need to find out the name of the last person, I forgot (amazing actually I learned all but one!).

I considered buying the hatchling, but it was pricy and I'd already spent mucho $ on jewelry thanks to Pam's bad influence!

Cheryl: stop bitching at Pam! You got some really nice jewelry, right? :P

And those are some pictures WOW! I think you secretly flew by private helicopter! Compliments

Pam, the Dragon's Heartbeans is what I mean
And, that Beach House looks like heaven! Pure heaven.

MAelin (Cheryl): those murals on the porch look FANTASTIC! Concerning I want somthing like it in my bedroom bu the artists charge about 175 dollars per square meter, would you, Maelin, consider coming over and do my bedroom wall - maybe paying for your airfare is cheaper than hiring a Dutch artist!!

Okay, the Dragon's Heart beans

I was sitting waiting for a panel to start with the usual suspects. Todd walked by and we did something along our accustomed, "We love you Todd!" He handed me a manila envelope and said, "here, read this." So, I open the envelope and there it is. Dragon's Heart, the manuscript. Squeeee! I was good and tried to pay attention for part of the panel, but decided to start reading. I only got about 10 pages in. It might have made more sense if I'd read Dragon's Fire

Unfortunately, he claimed it back at the end of the panel

LOL...Hans, I would sooooo love to come over and paint your wall for you...but you do realize that it would take me about a month to... erm... finish... right!!! Though it would be lovely to do for you, I am not to sure that Martin and I have that amount of vacation time that it would take to do it... but it is a wonderful idea to keep in mind if we ever win the Lottery...

Dena, Thank you for the compliments on my mural, it took me all summer long about six years ago, and my husband Martin and I both love it too.

I am witness to it and I kept trying to peer over her shoulder while

Of course it does not help that it was the major Sci Tech panel and Sunday so my brain cells were burned out by then. So focusing was a little problem.

Hoo boy was that panel ever deep, and not what I expected. At least several of us AMC fans there expect that the "singularity" they were going to talk about was an astronomy thingy, not what it turned out to be!

My big problem with the panel is they were "supposed" to explain what the darn thing was, and never did. I did okay tracking the science stuff, but it was just darn boring as I never quite did figure out exactly what they were talking about.

Several tried to explain it, with definitions that were clearly different. I feel like I sorta know what it is now, but I wouldn't do a good job explaining it to someone else.
