An Hour With Harriet

2012-04-30: I had the great pleasure of speaking with Harriet McDougal Rigney about her life. She's an amazing talent and person and it will take you less than an hour to agree.

The Bell Tolls

2012-04-24: Some thoughts I had during JordanCon4 and the upcoming conclusion of "The Wheel of Time."

Can we have a Theoryland team? That would be awesome. I know Linda will be there, so she'll likely be on another team. She collects trivia, so we will have to be on our toes.

LOL, I think I am getting rusty. Re-reads for everyone! If it involves speed-buzzing or some such, someone else will have to hold the buzzer cause I suck at that. (I need to watch Family Feud and see how it works.)

Default My tentative schedule

If anyone gives a shit, these are the events I am most interested in (and since I can't handle non-stop events, I will probably only go to these, depending on what time I can get there on Friday):

Friday:

1PM - Opening Ceremonies

2:30 - Hour with Brandon

4PM - will probably go with Harriet (what an editor does), but I will hate to miss Maria's thing (reflection on favorite scenes etc.)

8:30 - Asmodean with Tam

10PM - loony theories with Tam (depending on how tired I am...but this sounds fun)

Saturday:

11:30 AM - Brandon signing

1PM - Trivia Bee (wow, this is stacked against Brandon and Maria...but still, Trivia Bee)

2:30 - Moiraine?

4PM - reading?

7PM - Towers of Midnight and beyond

Sunday:

10AM - the thing for the sites, so long as we are not going to get ignored. If we are going to get ignored, I'm sleeping in!

11:30 - Team quiz (this event is stacked against Maria again)

1PM - Codex?

2:30 - Author Q&A (this has a ? by it in the schedule)

4PM - Brandon signing or Leavetakings

(I put question marks by stuff I might or might not go to.)

I'll buzz, but don't count on me to know things super fast off the top of my head. I *just* did a re-read and feel like I have more questions than answers. Still.

ETA:

Do we have to tregister for certain things, or can we just show up? It seems like I'm actually going to have to research this thing...

There are a few things that say you have to pre-register (like the shawl-making workshop) but most things are register-on-site.

Most of the workshops are first come, first served i.e. get there early or sit way in the back of the room. Some of them are probably worth leaving other ones early to get good seats.

Brutal.

I took a look and my tentative schedule will be:

Friday:

1 pm - Opening Ceremonies

2.30 pm - An hour with BS

4 pm - A Retrospective

8.30 pm - Asmodean

10 pm - Loony Theories

Saturday:

10 am - Not Quite Primetime

11.30 am - Future of the Franchise

1 pm - Trivia Bee OR End of the World

2.30 - Moiraine

4 pm - WoT Reading

7 pm - Towers of Midnight and Beyond

Sunday:

10 am - Websites

11.30 am - Noble Houses

1 pm- Codex OR Mat & Perrin

2.30 pm - Borderlanders

Am psyched, but have little interest in leaving things early to get to other things (that's rude, non?).

Tam and Marie are down for being on the team. That's good. I think that me, Tam, Marie, WSB, Frenzy, Ishara, B, and Isa (maybe Taer and Camel?) will probably be in the best shape to answer trivia questions, but who knows? Just because you aren't into WoT discussion doesn't mean you won't remember some random detail that we forget, and if we can have 12 people on the team, then let's have 12 (unless there is some sort of penalty for more people).

Also...I'm not so sure that it means there will be 8-12 people per team. I think it might mean that there will be 8-12 teams. We should probably get a clarification on that.

I will be entering the individual competition, assuming it's not too hard to be one of the 48. Anyone else?

I will probably sign up for both team and individual trivia, should be fun. I was not happy that I missed last years contest to have lunch, though I did walk in and watch for a bit at the end, and got a couple of answers that the winner didn't know

Oh, and I forgot about SBX, since he wasn't on the pass list. He is probably rusty, but he discussed WoT often enough in the past that he should definitely be on our team!

lol, I don't see why. You stopped posting in WoT around the time I got there. We very rarely cross paths even on Non. I wasn't aware that we had any sort of arguing history, and just from indirect observation, it seems we agree on politics most of the time.

Also...

LOL, you and everyone else. Now I remember. We argued about the Seanchan woman dream. You were wrong, of course.
