O. M. G!  
We are home, home, *actually* home. The heat has gone out but I don't care, we're home and it is Good. We got in several hours ago and have been talking with Mom and Dad, who've cleaned the house, emptied our bedroom of extra beds, put the new quilt Ted's mom made for us on our bed, slaughtered a third of the jungle in the back garden, fed our cats, put up new towel hangers in the bathroom, put a mat under my computer chair so it doesn't roll downhill, and generally been Heroes Of The Revolution.

We spent all the time in the Jim Lee line today and at the end of the first batch of standing in line, they said, "Jim is doing five more drawings. You, you and you, and how many are you? Three? Only two of you can have a drawing." So Ted, who is also a Hero Of The Revolution, chose to only get ABSOLUTE HUSH signed, and let irishkate and myself get drawings.

I now have an original

*beams like a fool* He said, "What would you like?" and I said, "I would dearly love a sketch of Rogue," and he looked up at me (we'd been talking for a while at that point, actually) and said, "I think I could've guessed that one." *laughs a lot*

It's already much too late, so tomorrow sometime between dealing with AAs and writing important emails and things I will write more about today and meeting Jim Lee and I mustn't forget to mention, among other things, the circumstances under which paulcornell2 said, "I've never done this with a woman before!"

And with that intriguing statement, I shall leave you. :)

Wow, what a very cool picture!

And looking forward to hearing exactly what Paul has never done with a woman before. ;)

You're mean, Miss.

I completely understand your thrill re: Jim Lee and your sketch. A few weeks ago it was Wonder Woman Day here in Portland. I visited the comic book store and was third in line to get Phil Jimenez (who in my opinion is the best penciler to draw the amazon since George Perez relaunched the title in the 90's). He drew her for a donation as Wonder Woman Day helped raise money for women's shelters.

His rendition of her was flawless, even if he has not been on the book for years. Phil apologized for making her chin too square and giving her a bit of "manish" look to her face, but I assured him it was perfect. "Wonder Woman is not a delicate looking woman, she is made of regal sturdy stuff." She can be curvy and kiss ass at the same time.

Anyway, my geek infested roots are showing. LOL Congrats on having such a wonderful time and getting chance for a once in a lifetime sketch of your superhero. ;-)

It was good to see you all again, even if it was only three weeks since the last time. Yes, irishkate and yourself were doing pretty much heavy-duty squeeing once you got your sketches!

I look forward to your longer report.

That's splendid. Jim is just a super nice guy, and your parents and Ted rawk. And that's one hot Rogue!
