Having had some semblance of sleep last night, thank FSM, there are a few details of Day One that I can fill in. The marketplace was open to students only yesterday....yarny brilliance aside, I got to wave hello to a certain bunneh of my acquaintance...Funny thing there is, she lives 10 minutes away from me, and we both have to come all the way to Portland to be in the same room!
I also got to meet a few bloggers in real life, which was brilliant. H from The Wandering Stitch, to whom I owe a bit of an apology for being a gibbering idiot. In my defense, I had just spent several hours with Cat Bordhi, and it took me a good couple of hours to form a coherent sentence after that! (Speaking of Cat Bordhi, she has a new book coming out in the fall. Just in time for my birthday. HINT to any fambly members reading this!) Also, I met Pam the Yarn Goddess in person. She gives great hugs.
Someone else waiting to use the computer, so I'll have to tell you another time about the milkshakes with fresh blackberries, and the side-splitting welcome we got from Tina and Stephanie last night. Off to find breakfast, and coffee, and maybe a ticket to see about breaking a world record.
