It's all new to me

So, after much procrastination and promises to shiny4LoVe I've finally gotten myself an LJ! 

 Jumping straight in there (as always) with no idea whatinell I'm doing.  After a brilliant weekend at the Starfury Breakout convention in Heathrow, London, little sleep, meeting heaps of new people, and acting like a giggling fangirl, I'm here tired and confused but elated. 

It's all new to me because...

  • I have an LJ and I have no idea what I'm looking at here!  What do I do?  How does the Friends thing work (vague vague idea from speaking to the more experienced)?  What do I write?
  • Breakout was my first weekend long convention and it was a truly amazing time meeting so many people with whom I could just chat merrily away.
  • Breakout WAS my first weekend long convention and I didn't know what to do, was this all just weird, I'm hugging and taking photos with people I don't know.
  • Meeting Jason was a new and exhilarating and frightening and heart-palpitating experience and I've never felt so giddy before.  Those eyes (hazel not brown!), that smile, those fiddly hands)...
  • I never gave much thought over to Michael Muhney but after meeting him, I'm completely a fan - he's so ebullient, voluble, warm, and loved the messianic scenario on Saturday night.

I hadn't realised how cool Mark Sheppard is and how much he's done!

This is going to be a short one as I am actually at work, in the office, and have a mile long list of crappy things to do.  

Big kisses and hugs to Tasha, Lazeema, Sam, Caroline, Tricia, and Liz and more, who made Breakout the great experience it was.  I could never have survived it without you guys!

Thanks baby!

I'm reading up on Sam's post - awesomely funny. It's taking ages to load tho' with all the pics so I may try it at home.

Not sure how to comment when I try to Friend people. But will post on their lj's and let them know it's me!

Miss you! And miss everyone from Breakout. It was a surreal but uplifting experience.

hey caroline!
Done! Thanks so much for searching me out there. Tasha was really lovely too and sent me everyone's lj tag.
I'm so new to this I have no idea what I'm doing but totally wanted to keep in touch with you and the other gals who made Breakout worth it! (Not discouting JD and MM's gravitational power either of course!)

Cor!!! I'm so happy to see your post! We were so incredibly bummed we didn't see you to say goodbye before you left on Sunday.

Yay for you for first post! (my first post was after Austin last year ... there's something about VM that causes this, yes?). I'm still a total LJ-novice though.

So so so so glad we all met ... it is absolutely necessary that we all return next year for a reunion (plus the boys, of course). Deal?

Yay Liz!
Reunion sounds like a brilliant plan to me - deal! Totally - VM really caught my devotion and fangirl insanity. Even after all the RT-related destruction of all we loved, I am going to miss it like hell.
I was bummed out too that I left early and didn't get to say bye. I was so tired and had to work on Monday (wuss I know!) I just didn't think I could do it. Plus I missed out on the hugs from the boys :'-(
This LJ thing is still intimidating to me. Esply when Sam and others have such cool pages and pics and flashy bits on theirs!

Cor, how did I miss this? Ugh, stupid LJ.

Anyway, how was interview, hun? I hope it went well.

And I had such a great time meeting you and Natasha AND EVERYONE ELSE.

Hiya Lazeema!

The interview went ok! I hear from them this week if I have the third stage to go through (case study and presentation - scary part!). It's taking ages.

We definitely have to do it again! It was such a blast.

I'll be emailing you a nice pic of Tricia and you that I took when we were out at the pub. (So very English!) It's one of the few photos I actually have as I was camera-lazy.

I also have some vid files to accompany Tasha's files :-) I'll be posting them to her at some point (snail mail - so backward!) and I'll leave it to her to upload them wherever!

Hi Cor!

I'm so happy to see you! (kind of) I'm sure you'll figure out how to use LJ pretty quickly.

Btw, I have a few pictures of you and Natasha. I'll upload them on photobucket and send you the link.

Big kisses (since you're not american ;-)

Bonjour Laure! Ca va?

I definitely need some time to work out all the features and snazzy things everyone seems to do on their ljs. And the userpic I made up actually as the wrong year - spazzy! Plus it's just teeny.

Hope you managed to get Madelaine her photo with Jason. She was so funny at Breakout.

I'm down with the big kisses! *kiss kiss* It gets confusing with the Belgians/Dutch when it's three kisses - very OTT, and more risk of clashing foreheads! (For me, of course, as I'm just a klutz)
Jun. 4th, 2007 11:18 am (UTC)
ça va bien. Merci :)

The icons have to be 100 x 100 pixels max.
You can find VM icons here: veronica_icons.

No, I totally forgot that and I think she forgot my LJ name. LOL
Do you know her LJ name?
Btw, I can make a userpic for you if you want, don't hesitate to ask :)

LOL. Yeah, it can get confusing. Even in France, depending on were you live, you have to give 2, 3 or even 4 kisses.
That 'll be two for me. *kiss kiss*

hey cor! Welcome to LJ! :)

Breakout WAS my first weekend long convention and I didn't know what to do, was this all just weird, I'm hugging and taking photos with people I don't know.
Ha, I felt the same. But that was also the fun part: meeting so many fun people (oh and the stars too)!

Meeting Jason was a new and exhilarating and frightening and heart-palpitating experience and I've never felt so giddy before. Those eyes (hazel not brown!), that smile, those fiddly hands)...

Totally agree! Couldn't have said it better. And jasons: "They're green, bitch" was randomly hilarious!

Oh, I totally forgot about our Saturday-disciples/followers-theory! And the messenger (swinty- Inge) who kept us up to date lol!

"They're green, bitch"

LMAO That was sooo good, wasn't it! I so have to bunk down with Tasha's little pressies and re-live the experience.
