I thought I'd come back here for the rest since Jane is doing lot's of blogging on DA and doesn't really need me *g*.
Let's' see. When I left off I hadn't even hooked up with Wendy, Sybil or Jane yet. Wendy's flight was delayed so it was actually Sybil who got here first. I'm going to run out of adjectives - so bear with me for a bit. Sybil is a delight!! She's the kind of person who just says it like it is. I always admire that and wish I had more spunk like that without having to release Krisite. Her hair is gorgeous and she's as funny in person as she is on her blog.
Then about 5 minutes after she arrived at the room, Wendy showed up. Wendy is down to earth and oddly enough (I can say this because I already told her) has the strongest accent of all of us and she lived for years in Michigan which is why she cheers for the Tigers and isn't all that far from where I grew up.
And she is much taller than me. I didn't expect that *g*. But she's fun to talk to and never at a loss for words.
We went down to the bar after a while and waited for Jane. Her flight had been doubly delayed so she was quite late arriving. In the meantime, Alyssa walked by and Sybil recognized her and called her over. It was a great time all talking and getting to know each other.
Then finally Jane arrived. Now I'm going to be honest here and say I was a bit intimidated about meeting her. I mean this is one half of Dear Author - a power in the reader blogging world. Nora Roberts herself often comments there. But Jane is as sweet and honest and funny as can be. Right off the bat all intimidation disappeared!
So I'm happy as a clam (and never doubted it anyway) but I have really great roomies while I'm here in Dallas.
I'm signing off for now - I'm on Jane's laptop and Wendy and I are headed for lunch shortly.
The rest of the evening went very well. I made Alyssa laugh which is always a good thing when people thing I'm funny. That's what I aim for. It was a wonderful first day in Dallas.
I haven't had a check to check Wendy or Sybil or Jane's posts yet, but when I blog about Doing Dallas - Day II it's going to be a good one because yesterday (this is day III now) was a Very Special Day.
