…has been telling lies about me. He likened me to an evil leprechaun and I have felt the need to point out repeatedly I’m nowhere near as vertically challenged as he is, nor can I be led by the hairs on my chinny-chin-chin and his shoes were pointier than mine too.
(Russel “Duh” McLean, Sandra wearing the FUCK button, and Brett Battles, just before the panel where John called him a wimp)
Don’t ask Russel what he did with the horns. It’s why we really couldn’t show the cow’s face.
The hat is a good look for you Russel. Now, as cool as that shirt is, I wish I had a good photo of the Badger Badger Badger shirt. However, by the end of the weekend, it was all we could do to keep Russel from charging the store and buying himself this shirt.
It isn’t really your colour, Russel.
And this is what you get when you ask him to take a photo after 8 pm. The three stages of Russel are hung over, recovering from the headache, and are you drinking again? See, this is why I spent a day with Russel when I was in Edinburgh in July. The man knows how to have a good time!
Speaking of Scots, I must digress from the discussion of Bouchercon to toss confetti and scream at the top of my lungs and all that jazz for the effervescent* Stuart MacBride who won the Barry award for Cold Granite! How cool is that?!
Now, in all seriousness, there are many other places online to get the goods on B’con. And today, I’ve put up some of my reflections on the Killer Year blog. I am, as always, looking forward to Cornelia Read’s weekly post, which she tells me will be about B’con as well.
This will make more sense after reading my post at Killer Year, but I wanted to add my delight at meeting Patricia Smiley. It’s always fun when you go up to someone and say, “You’re one of those Naked authors, aren’t you?”
I also met Lori G. Armstrong and Jeff Shelby from First Offenders. You can’t be too careful around First Offenders – you never know when they might shift gears and become Repeat Offenders.
And now, more photos. I’m going to try to wrap up photo posting tomorrow and Saturday, and am aiming for The Truth About Dave White video for Friday.
Just in case Dave thought he’d been successful with the bribery attempt. Sorry. My price is higher. You have 24 hours to raise the offer to an acceptable level…
Bill Cameron, Laura Lippman and some Canadian chick.
Cornelia, me and the cup (which you’ll have to read my post on Killer Year to find out about)
