Worldcon misc.

I forgot to mention something. Now that I've gotten sleep, there are probably many other things I should have forgotten to mention <wry g>.

While in the green room before one panel, I ran into Lois McMaster Bujold. She walked up to the table around which many of us were sitting, and I noticed that she was wearing a large, silver-toned necklace. Large as in Very Large -- it was about two inches thick, and flat, and ... and looking at it, it seemed to be composed of... hugo pins. And nebula pins. And something from the World Fantasy. It was, in fact, the feminine equivalent of wearing all those hugo pins on your name-tag. But prettier. She'd taken them to a jeweller and had the necklace made.

My first thought was, I wonder what Resnick would think?

And her first words -- after our many words of admiration and astonishment fell into silence -- were, "I can't wait to see Mike Resnick's face."

Me either. And I didn't :/.

So she did wear it! I don't know where I read it, but someone mentioned helping her put it together. I think.

She absolutely did wear it -- I think she probably skipped it for the Hugo ceremony itself, although I haven't seen pictures <g>. It was lovely, and not immediately obvious -- but once you knew what it was, it had the effect of causing both envy and a great deal of amusement. She's such a nice person it's hard to do anything but enjoy her success -- but she clearly has a sense of humour as well <g>.
