Pre-Flan Blog #1
Monday, December 4, 2006

Oh, boy.. I still can't believe I'm going to this thing. And although I'm excited I'm also nervous.
Hope this country mouse isn't too out of place in the big city.

I am so excited about seeing my daughter though, who lives there in CA and so excited about meeting all of my BDFriends that I've met here at and at the Serenity Browncoat Board! This is the most important part to me, after meeting Nathan Fillion of course. Sorry guys.. meeting Nathan Fillion is unabashedly my most favorite thing about this! Who's next? Why, Ron Glass of course. And Greg Edmondson too! I love to hear Ron laugh and he's an exceptionally interesting person. Then there is the addition of Greg Edmondson.. I have wanted to tell him that his music moved me since I heard the part where Simon tells the crew about River after she emerges from the box...each time I hear that music in the background .. I cry. I want to tell him that.

Actually, I'll be excited to meet everyone! I'm very happy for all of us that Flan is going ahead.

And did I tell you that I hate to fly? I loathe flying... this is the only thing besides family that would get me on an airplane. *Sigh*

I hope to have access to a computer in the days right after Flan when my memory is still sharp and capable of details. And I plan to take notes as things occur. I'll do my best to present Flan as I see it. Then I'm gonna rush and read DonCoat's and MalNourished's con reports.. cuz they're the best! I promise to do links!

I have a cocktail outfit, *snort*... me in a cocktail outfit. Whee!

I so glad to hear that Greg is going to be there - even though I'm not going. That man has no idea how much he is loved and appreciated, and he really deserves to find out.

And I'm sure you'll go a long way to showing him!

Do enjoy!

Hey, FB!

I will have my daughter who is an excellent photographer in tow and my future son in law's laptop with, I hope.
We will file a report every evening if this works out and try to post pics too.

*crosses fingers*

Thank you for the compliment.. I promise not to adorn any reports with me in a cocktail dress. ;)

Yay, FM! You go, gal!!
Our hearts are with you even if our bods are languishing far away.
See if you can sneak a few minutes on somebody's laptop for reports, or borrow a camera phone and send a few pix to a conspirator.
And FM in a cocktail dress is gonna be as gorgeous as Kaylee in pink ruffles.

MSG, thank you very much for the compliment. :blushes: I'll likely at least share the pic I get to take with Nathan. ( heart stopping excitement that one is!)

ZZetta13, I will follow your advice and keep thinking of my daughter's pretty happy face at the end of the journey. That will help a lot. I will also do my best to have fun and report back here as much as I can. I'm taking a journal and I plan to write down stuff, like a roving reporter, lol and write it all back here when I can get online. I wish I was getting to take my own laptop, but it's just too heavy, so I'll have to borrow one at Flan or sneak onto my daughter's at her house every chance I get. ;)

BEB, I'm so sorry I can't pack each and every one of the folks that want to go.
It'd be so fun if everyone of us could get together. I keep thinking since this is the last Flan that maybe the big gathering at Dragon Con will become the central Browncoat con next year. Don't know if I can make that... but I'd sure love to be there if everyone could come. :)

Everyone here should have a virtual con or shindig while we're gone, that's what our Appreciatin' Nathan crew is doing over on the Serenity Browncoat board. They're all going to get online at the same time and have a big ole virtual party.

I will do my best to blog by best. ;)

Hiya Mrs.FollowMal :)

Enjoy yourself at Flan (even though I din't know what that is). I'm like yourself, I hate flying. Only flew for the first time this year back in September. Anyhoo it wasn't that bad. Just keep thinking of what's at the end of the flight. If you can get on the cortex to tell us about it that's fine. If not just have fun to fullest amout.

See ya,Z
