One Week Countdown  
With only one week to go before MegaCon and my second shot at meeting Ms. Kidder, the hotel is booked, the tickets are bought, gas money has been saved, one of our tax returns have been received, food money is set, and LUSH money has been set aside. It's been a little dicey around here lately as far as fun things go, so we're seriously going to treat ourselves next weekend. And I can't wait.

The plan currently is that we leave work on late Thursday night after work and stay at a hotel between here and Orlando over night, get up and head into Orlando Friday morning to drop ourselves at the official hotel, and get ready to spend the day at a theme park (the tax return is going to be very helpful here). We'll crash when we get in. We're both up early Staurday morning because I want to try to meet her before the crowds get horrible and she starts to get tired. I also know I'm going to be nervous as all hell, so I want to do it before I can chicken out. I feel so nervous! Part of me wants to say that I'll stay calm the same way I stayed calm when I met the cast of Nikita at Close Quarters Standby and be able to laugh and be cool. The other part knows that I'm going to feel like a little kid meeting her mother for the first time. I'm scared to death that I going to get overwhelmed and she's going wonder if I'm a complete idiot. I can totally chat up the cast of my favorite show, but the thought of meeting my idol is just nerve-wracking! *headdesk*

Well, after we meet Margot and she signs the beautiful sketch that Sophie drew me for my birthday two years ago, we'll give me a Xanex and
probably go to LUSH and pick up stuff. My stash has been totally depleted in the last couple of months. I actually tried to use the Bath and Body Works stuff that I bought last month during the after-Christmas sales and it broke me out something fierce. That just sucks, so I'm going to top up my stash while we're there. I miss all of my stuff, but I miss my Flying Fox and my Mange Too the most.

Then we're heading home on Sunday. I'll probably just collapse the minute get in. *LOL* And we have the bigwigs coming in next week the day before I leave. *snicker* Plus our latest Heirs chapter is due the morning we meet Margot. Mi vida loca, my loves. Mi vida loca.

In calmer news, I'm actually caught up to the 15th on the F-List. I can't believe my F-List has gotten so huge that it takes several days to read all of the entries when I'm gone for a week! And I'm trying to stay caught up on replies. And Ms. januaried has started spoiling me rotten again, this time with new Heirs icons! These guys are so awesome it hurts! And we're trying to get the fanmixes set up again! The next is the last one for LS and then the first for Heirs. *tacklehugs her* And me and elliania are up to some serious layout evil, so keep your eyes peeled! Katness, I think they'll freak. :D

Oh, BTW, for those that haven't seen it, this is what I'm going to get Margot to sign:


OMG, I'm so excited!

You know me, I'll call LJ from the convention hall with my voice still shaking. *LOL*

And it is so gorgeous! Sophie is a portrait artist and she absolutely shocked me with this guy! The only thing is that I wish she had colored it. I'd love to see what it would look like in color!

Wheeee!! XD Oh man, you guys are gonna have so much fun! When you talk to her, be sure to give Margot all our love from LJ land. ^_^

After I get done weeping like a little girl, I'll be sure to do that. And I do mean to tell her about you guys. Anissa's threatening to write her a note to explain to her what she means to me before I walk up since she doubts that I'll get it all out. XD

She needs to know that she really does have a lot of fans out there. I've even considered slipping her one of the LS oneshots to let her see that we still love her Lois. Then again, I hate the thought of her going, "Weeeeird."

We just discussed what cameras we were taking and the fact that we'll have a zillion batteries for it. I'm going to need the pics just to remind me that it was real. I can't believe that we're actually going to get to do this!

And I'm absolutely certain that I'll be writing a blue streak later that night! You guys know me! I'm going to get to meet my Lois! *giggles like mad*

soooo exciting :D
Lois: Lois :: Facepalmkalalanekent on February 23rd, 2009 03:25 am (UTC)
It really is, but I'm just getting more and more nervous! Remind me that she's awesome? I'm scared to death that I'm going to end up ;looking like an idiot!
dj_intheuk: Christopher Reevedj_intheuk on February 23rd, 2009 12:11 pm (UTC)
Just take some deep breaths beforehand. That worked for me. For me the most striking thing was as she was talking my brain was screaming *OMG that is *so* Lois Lane's voice * which I wasn't expecting to be something that would come as a surprise to me but it did! And she is awesome, you've nothing to worry about - a pro at conventions - I could tell she's done 'em before. :)
Lois: Lois :: B&W Profilekalalanekent on February 25th, 2009 05:48 pm (UTC)
I think that's what I'm the most worried about, actually. I'm afraid that I'm going to stand there like a buffoon, going "OMG, this is what she sounds like in real! She sounds just like the Lois muse in my head!"

Even worse, I live in terror that I'll actually slip and tell her that. *headdesk*

OMG I am so excited for you!!

You should get Anissa to take a video of you meeting her as well as tons of pictures. (But make sure the batteries are charged up, that happened to me when I meet Chris Judge last year and it sucked :( (But then he was so awesome it made up for it)). Is she doing a panel?
Lois: Lois :: Reporterkalalanekent on February 23rd, 2009 03:29 am (UTC)
Oh, trust me! The camera will most definitely be present at this event, hopefully not showing you guys me making a total fool of myself. I haven't heard anything about a panel yet, but you can be sure that!

Remind me that she was nice and didn't look at you like you were a bug under glass? (Yes, I'm terrified that I'll look stupid or that she won't like me.)
Grace: SG1; Awesome; Jackrepmetsyrrah on February 23rd, 2009 06:05 am (UTC)
Lol, you have nothing to be worried about. She was so nice when I meet her and I wasn't exactly the calmest and most collected person when I spoke to her. I'm sure she'll love you, she should, she's heard enough about you. (Three times by now if I remember right?)

Btw, imagine my icon is Margot instead of RDA, Grace is too lazy to make and icon like that right now

*takes a dep breath* I wonder if she'll even remember that she's heard about me. Down to three days now. GAH! *faints*

*huggles you* Yay! I'm so glad you're getting another shot at meeting Margot, and I hope you and Anissa have an insane amount of fun! :D
Lois: LS :: Lois Superman :: Lois the Klutzkalalanekent on February 23rd, 2009 03:34 am (UTC)
I'm hoping to get there early enough on Saturday (no taking chances on Sunday this time) so that she won't have had to deal with much foolishness.

...still worried she'll think I'm a nut. *facepalm*

Beautiful picture - I just know she'll love it. Did you draw it yourself?

You're so lucky to be meeting Margot. Hope you have a great time ;)
Lois: Lois :: Beautifulkalalanekent on February 23rd, 2009 03:39 am (UTC)
Ooooh, no! That pic of Margot was drawn by SophieNoux, author of A Place to Call Home over at BlueTights.net back when LS was just starting out. I had planned to have her sign it last year, but that was when we missed her by 10 minutes. But it's so personal and such a gorgeous job that I not only want her to see it, I want her to autograph it. And here's to getting a second chance at seeing her!

*bites lip* I hope she likes me.
