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 :/.

(chortle!) I can just picture that!
I met her when she was still married to John Bujold and stopped by their house in Ohio once to get the prototype dulcimer he made (didn't play worth a damn but fun to goof around on). She seemed so kind and friendly and generous that I keep thinking I really ought to get around to reading more of her stuff. sigh... but then - I ought to read more of YOUR stuff too. SO many books - so many damned textbooks - so little time. argh! ;-)
