This quote made my morning…

You are on a speakerphone with at least 14 teachers and librarians and suchlike great, wise and good people, I thought. Do not start swearing like you did when you got the Hugo. This was a wise thing to think because otherwise huge, mighty and four letter swears were gathering. I mean, that’s what they’re for. I think I said, You mean it’s Monday?blockquote>

    Hiya! Maybe I’m emailing in the wrong place, but I’ve been trying to get hold of you re: the Unconvention. It’s this weekend (fri thru Sun). If you could get in touch that would be cool, even if it’s to say “I can’t make it.” It’s ok to show up for just one day or two days or whatever.

    I loved that quote too. Neil Gaiman’s blog is worth checking – you get amusing quotes like that fairly often.

    Anyway, I found your blog through Markeroni – at the Unconvention this weekend, and checking things out. Sorry we missed you. :)
