Birthdays and such

First of all, happy birthday wishes to metal_aria. May you have a wonderful day and many, many more!

And while I'm on the subject of birthdays, I'd like to thank all of those who sent me very kind birthday wishes last week. I did indeed have a lovely day. I'm so grateful for you and your thoughtfulness!

In other news, the sites for both ORC II: The One Ring Celebration (January in Pasadena) and The Gathering of the Fellowship 2006 (July in Toronto) have been updated to include my Guest Scholar information. I hope I will see some of you at these events!

Thanks so much! Getting back on Sunday night only to return to classes on Monday left me a bit behind. But I'm getting there! (And I'm listening right now to your lovely Hogwarts mix!) :)

I'd be happy to go to those if you have a suitcase big enough to pack me in. :)

LOL! :) My husband and Boston terrier have already called dibs on the suitcase, but if I had a Mary Poppins bag, you'd be very welcome! :)

Happy Belated Birthday!

I'm sorry I missed it on the day. Now that November is ending I am rediscovering this thing called the internet.

Happy Belated Birthday, (((((EH)))))) I apologize for missing it, even after reminding myself to remember to remember, lol. I am very glad you had a nice day!

See you in Toronto!

Happy late birthday -- didn't know it was your birthday!

I got the Magic Ring today from Interlibrary Loan...I skimmed it a bit and it looks interesting (although it looks like somebody dunked the book in water and it's growing white mold or something). I'll scan it over winter break and send it to you....

Thanks for the birthday wishes. It's a little anti-climactic now that I just keep turning 29 over and over again. ;)

(although it looks like somebody dunked the book in water and it's growing white mold or something)

Yikes! That sounds a little creepy and a little gross. I've been known to spray Lysol on library books before. It's probably terrible for the paper, but it effectively kills the mold smell.

I'll scan it over winter break and send it to you....

Fantastic! I really look forward to it. I should be online for all but about three days of the break. Thanks again!

lemme just say again (and with waxing envy): you get to go to the coolest conferences! you get to mix with hobbits and Denethor - holy cow!

meanwhile, I live out David Lodge novels. :)

::collapses in hysterical laughter::

Now, now, weren't you just globetrotting (and sending brilliant Boston terrier postcards from around the world) while I was working on conference preparations 24/7 - okay, technically 17/7 - stuffing packets and printing tickets? ;) Seriously, though, I am having fun. And I've had some of my best intellectual exchanges as a member of academic tracks at cons. So I feel privileged.
