M, who I christened Brunette Fangirl on Sat. We got the Kevin Smith golden ticket- so we went to the Q and A. She's a big fan of his, so I was really glad she got to see him. She also bought comics, trades, and a great Tommy Castillo Harley Quinn print. TC got out his colored pencils and paints to redden a Batgirl card he was selling when I joked that her hair needed to be less blonde and more red. How is that for custom service? See PhillyGirl2873 for her journal of the day. She's a huge LOST and BUFFY fan also.
Bob Wayne, Editor at DC Comics, and Geoff Johns. I got talking with Bob after this because he was joking how I didn't want him in the photo, but I really did because he just ran the big DC Universe panel that Rags Morales was on. Bob again spoke with me after the Vertigo panel, poorly attended because most of the con was jammed into the Kevin Smith QA waiting to see the Clerks2 preview. Geoff was pretty easy on the eyes in his black hoodie too. Oh, and I like his writing. But I didn't get to speak or meet him, sigh.

A big work week for this librarian- we have started a computer training lab at my library, and I'm the main trainer. Tomorrow I begin teaching absolute beginner computer classes. I hope the 6/6/06 demons are not interested in fouling up my equipment. I even made the local rag paper. Clippings to send to Mom!
