Don't know what to do with myself. I'm so geeked.

This is a testimony to keeping busy while dealing with unemployment. Volunteer work does seem to pay off. If anything it keeps you involved with your craft. I have to say that 90% of this is Chris Garcia's fault. He trusted me to do weird and eclectic stuff for the Drink Tank and ...I did. Still am. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have met James Bacon and a host of other folk from Corflu. Thanks Chris. And no way did I forget the best group of goobers in fandom, the Bay Area Science Fiction Association (BASFA).

This nomination dosen't mean I've won a Hugo. That comes later in Reno, if I'm lucky.  As far as I'm concerned, I've won the best thing ever and that's being able to attend a Worldcon where I can meet and talk to the biggest collection of  writers, artists and creative people in Science Fiction.
Thanks everyone.
Maurine

!!!Way COOL!!!.

This could not have happened to a better person. I am SO happy for you. You've earned the recognition. WOW! I now know someone how is in the running for a Hugo. Hope you remember us little people when you are hob nobbing with the supper artists.

Besides, dragons think your cool so how much better can it get. ;)
