Well...all I can say is this was a very wild time! I think the earliest I got to bed was 2AM, the average was 3, and one night it was 4:30. Yeah. I'm way too old for this.
I came home with no voice, but a happy smile on my tired face. I went to a few workshops (I know-I never go to the workshops!). In particular I loved Sasha White and Vivi Anna's on Bad Girls. Our group was there-Lillian Feisty, Karen Erikson and me. The fabulous Feisty attended with cocktail in hand-a white chocolate martini, I believe. A wonderful, interactive workshop-fun and a little dirty! We love that!
My pal and brilliant webmistress, Jax Crane, also presented a workshop on web marketing with Cathy Clamp and Rob Preese-2 hours long, and they did an amazing job! Really detailed info. Of course, they probably could have done without Kristen and I sitting in the back row giggling like a couple of school girls-all I can do is plead exhaustion. Jax is just lucky that Kristen didn't get up, spit on a wad of tissue and wipe her face, as she kept threatening to do after we both fawned over how pretty she looked, how brialliant she was, what a good job she was doing, like her two mothers.
I met some wonderful people there this year-way too many to list. And it was great to see some of my old Diva friends I only get to see once a year.
The costume parties were insane! In a good way. I'm such a costume geek-that was my favorite part. I really never wanted to take my fairy wings off ever again. They'd go so well with my pj's and fuzzy slippers while I type away in front of my computer every day. Hmmm...they just might, at that...
Okay-here are some pics, although those of you who want to see the full load can go into Chit Chat at Romance Divas and look for my RT pics post with the link. This was about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on!
