Went to SF for Wondercon (I bought my pass 'way in fucking December, lol) and to meet up with some folks from [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc.

No, really. I did something social. I left my house and interacted with people offline.

I know, I'm as shocked as you are!

The meet-up was great. Five hours in a food court spent discussing fandom, fic and various permutations of porn. :-) I forgot how much I like the occasional fandom geekery session!

Also, I met Berke Breathed. I've waited 30 years to meet him, and then I met him today. I was practically bouncing off the walls of the Moscone afterward. I called my dad and was incoherent at him. He laughed.

The IDW booth guy let me take a photo; he suggested it, when he saw how nervous I was and that I didn't have anything substantial to get autographed (I couldn't find my Billy and the Boingers book). I don't normally like photos with people but I did it this time because BERKE BREATHED and it's for my dad.

He's smiling tiredly. I'm grinning like a nervous idiot because I was nervous, and an idiot. :D

Tomorrow (today): Doctor Who panel with Neil Gaiman. Aaaaaaaaaah.

WOW Berkeley Breathed! He looks great! If you hadn't told the story of the photo, I wouldn't have thought you looked foolish or he looked tired--just a really good-looking fangirl posing with a surprisingly hot cartoonist. I'm so excited for you.

Neil Gaiman! He likes to be in photos with fans, too.

HORRIBLY jealous. Berke Breathed AND Neil Gaiman (a prince among men, and wants to be my boyfriend) all in one weekend? Lucky.

We were by far not the strangest group in that food court, though. That honour belongs to the table of Boba Fetts (Bobi) behind us. :D

I had the same reaction re: leaving the house and interacting with people. I don't do that! But it was so fun! I'm glad I got to meet awesome Sherlock fans.
