Oh, my gosh! Scott Westerfeld! IS. TOUCHING. YOU. And lookin' darned happy.

Also? You look amazing. LOVE that jewelry.

How is it that we blog and are all such beautiful people? I think books somehow give us bright eyes, excellent skin and great hair. Trés, trés beau.


Thanks, T! I agree ... we all looked very wholesome. I came back to Scottsdale to all the botoxed bleached blondes and immediately felt fat and ungainly again. Aargh.

The pendant is a fire agate from Arizona, but I call it "California Wildfire." You can't really tell, but it looks like blackened hills with the flames licking the horizon ... just like we would see every fall in SoCal!

Sorry we missed you. Hurry back to us, sweetie.

Anne, I'm glad that you got to hear from other bloggers how much people value the Cybils. You've put in countless hours over the years (as have many tireless volunteers), and it's great to see the Cybils lists becoming ever-more-appreciated as a resource. And Carol Rasco is an amazing person :-)

This actually made tears come to my eyes. I've said it before, Anne, but you constantly underestimate your importance to the success of the Cybils. You do a lot more than you think you do. And the pendant was even more beautiful in person than in the picture.

I do take credit for the picture, though, since not only did I nudge Anne to go and get her picture taken with Scott, but I think I actually took the picture, although it's all a little bit hazy so I might be wrong about that. :)


Yep, you took the picture and it's one of the few I actually like of me! And don't make me cry, Sheila and Jen. Sheesh. I can't even see the screen now. Knock that off or it's the dungeon for you both.

So saith the overlord.

Hey, there have to be some perks to being an overlord, especially when you are benign rather than evil. In fact, this almost makes me want to grow up to be an overlord, if we can get Anthony Horowitz or David Gilman to come to a KidLit Con! Not that they're hot-- would just like to talk with them, of course!


I could hardly believe that was our first time meeting in person, Anne and Sheila!! Anyway, it was wonderful and long overdue.

I just want to take this opportunity to also note that I normally have my eyes OPEN. Y'know, in general. Not in pictures, apparently.
