Trying to get to Atlanta!

Quick personal query. I really want to go to Dragon*con. Things went as they do, and stuff… lost the chance to get into the proper hotels. Now a coworker I had a slight chance of rooming with is going with her husband, so that’s out too. It’s getting 11th hour, but I just got the booklet in the mail rubbing in just how much I want to go. So even costumeless, I’m not quite resigned to not going just yet.

Is anyone going or know anyone (relatively not scary…) looking for a roomie? The official-ish hunt seems to be mostly a facebook thing and I haven’t gotten facebook straightened out yet!

As you’ve learned, I make crafts, am a bit of a science fangirl, and admire folklore and fantasy writing and art. Geek-wise I’m an avid whovian/sherlockian with a bit of a browncoat leaning. Last year my favorite track at the con was Skeptrack. I’m quiet in person unless you ask about one of said topics, not much of a party girl (sometimes for lack of invites and sometimes from shyness), and a nonsmoker.

Let me know if you have any ideas, please!

A Study in Emerald

A quick conflation- emerald is May’s birthstone, and today is was the last episode of BBC’s Sherlock on PBS. Who knows how long until the next one. So I’m letting some fangirl out. (And going to go read The Adventure of the Empty House for meagre consolation.)

Neil Gaiman’s brilliant A Study in Emerald is a fun mix of Doyle‘s world and Lovecraft‘s mythos is available on his website. As a bonus this version looks like an old fashioned newspaper. Very fun!

A quirky collection of emerald Cthulhu and Sherlock themed crafts in honor of May’s birthstone and Gaiman’s story. (Yes, the comma was left out intentionally, they’re all emerald colored pieces!)
