WonderCon, writing, reading

Time for a weekend update (with your host, the Bad Luck Girl).

We didn’t have a chance to see Clash of the Titans, but we did go to WonderCon.  It wasn’t as fun as I expected since it was so incredibly crowded.  Getting through the aisles was almost impossible sometimes, especially near the “celeb” booths, like Brent Spiner (Data) and John de Lancie (Q) whom I now associate with Breaking Bad.

We also saw Adam Baldwin from Firefly.  He had this embarrassed smile as he sat there in his booth while people went nuts taking pictures.  I heard one middle-aged woman say, “Oh my God, he’s so gorgeous!”

Another highlight was this booth selling a magazine called Girls and Corpses.  Either it’s some fetish or a joke.  Either way, disturbing!  (Now I’m sure I’ll get hate mail from Girls and Corpses lovers.)

There were tons of photo ops but I only managed to get one:

alien and random woman

That’s not me by the way, just some random lady having her pic taken with the alien.

In other news, I heard back from the Graywolf Press contest, and while I didn’t win, my memoir was one of the 15 finalists.  Yay, I don’t totally suck!  I’m also busy this week with a few deadlines.  I love deadlines!

As for my reading, I read the first Harry Potter, which was awesome, and now am reading Memoir of a Geisha for the first time.  It’s good in a trashy way.


  1. I hate to admit this, but I would have been totally jazzed to see Adam Baldwin — except, I don’t think of him as the guy from Firefly. If you’ve never seen Chuck, I would highly recommend it. It’s one of those series I’d hear about but after watching the first two seasons on DVD, I was totally hooked.

  2. From the looks of that lady, I think she thinks that is the real Alien.
