Gala Notes and More Spy Pics


I did manage to sneak in a Braves game at Turner Field! There I was, sitting among the hated Mets fans as they cheered their team beating the crap out of my poor boys. Me in new Braves hat, eating a big hotdog, beer by my side, nice sunny weather that wasn't too hot...ahhhh, it was simply too cool! I know this isn't part of the RWA experience ;-) but hey, it's my first live experience of my favorite sports in the world! I can't tell you how awesome it was to see the field right in front of me and 50,000 people sitting around the stadium.

And all for less than 10 bucks! Honest to God! It was so easy to get to Turner Field from the hotel--walk through Peachtree Mall, down to MARTA (the rail), pay $1.75, take one stop south, then walk through Atlanta Underground (you have to go here, girls--it's like an underground flea market, with lots of jewelry, African American artwork, food, arcade fun, handmade handbags, just tremendous shopping fun!), then take the waiting shuttles there for $1. The shuttles take you straight to the Stadium without any traffic headaches! And since the game was sold out, I paid 5 bucks--FIVE BUCKS--for standing room only to get in. And walking in and finding any spot I want to watch from for that amount of money--it was sweet. Well worth the price of admission. In comparison, I pay $50 for an Orlando Magic game, if I'm lucky. Heck, for $5 I don't even mind the Braves losing as long as I get to be close to Marcus Giles, teehee.



Okay, so you're yawning that I'm waxing poetic about my first baseball game. I have this thing about men in tights bending over, I don't know why.... This is the backside of my one of my favorite players ;-). I like to watch him play a lot.




********Right, onto MORE IMPORTANT THINGS....
Before I regale you in another post about my Uber-Brush With Homeland Security (sigh, someone UNCROSSED their toes too soon!!!), here are notes and photos of the RWA RITA and Golden Heart Gala that was held on Saturday night.

For a good article from AP about romance and the RWA signing, click
HERE. It's actually a pretty good article.

Actually my Homeland Security Brush-In, although very frustrating and crazy, was nothing compared to
Michelle Willingham's experience in the homebound aircraft. I spent hours at ATL airport trying to get a ride home without an ID; she had to deal with engine failure. While in the air. Yikes! She wins.

So here are some photos taken during the gala, showing off the glamorous side of uber-authorness:



Here is me in my usual roofing outfit, only without my toolbelt and tar smears, of course.



Arianna Hart and me. In case you're still wondering, Arianna is the tall blonde.



I Heart Jacquie d'Alessandro's gator purse. One day I will steal it. I think all Cherry Bombs will understand why ;-).



The totally glamorous Marjorie Liu in bold leopard print. And that's her third plate of chocolate strawberries. GAH. ;-) Luv you, ML! Woof.



I'm sorry, I don't know who this is. I just love that dress so much and she looked so elegant that I asked to snap her pic and forgot to ask for her name and email. So if any of you recognize her, please let me know! Again, my apologies. I'm really, really bad with remembering names and faces.

And the following photo is for Jude at Blogging National. Here are pretty gala shoes!



And here are the uber-authors wearing them (plus a few late-joiners):



And that's all I have for now! Whew! Posting photos on Blogger is like walking through the Tunnel of Doom and Torture. For some reason it gives you options, like Centering or Right or Left, and these buttons don't FREAKING WORK!

For fab pictures taken of presenters at the RWA awards ceremony, here is the link to Jude's pics. She really did a fantastic job covering the RWA experience. Kudos to that Cherry Bombette!

HERE to see all the beautifully coiffed uber authors! More about my RWA week later!



Bear with me while I learn. The first button likes the POST. The second button likes the BLOG site. Please help me by "liking" me. Thanks!

Hi, Jenn! It's so good to be able to read your blog again. I'm so behind in my "favorite author news". I was looking through who won the awards and there were very few who I have even heard of. The only book I've read on that list is Survivor in Death. Are there any of the long contemps or paranormals that you would personally recommend?

SQ said...

For shame! You got beat by the Mets. The METS! They stink! For shame!

$5 tickets?! No way. I scrape up $50 to get nosebleed seats--behind home plate of course. Ah, but then again MY team is a winning team. We don't lose to no stinking Mets. Come on! Let's hear it--LET'S GO YANKEES!

Btw, love the gold faux alligator skin shoes. Tres chic. The perfect Mission Impossible shoes. You're still humming the theme song in your head aren't you?

hi Casee!

Where you been, girl? I'd definitely recommend Marjorie Liu and JR Ward--they are simply fabulous! I really enjoyed their books and their styles. For long contemporary, my two recommendations are Dianna Love Snell and Kylie Brant, one a rising star and the other a rising goddess!!!

Don't be a stranger!

SQ,
I know. It hurts to lose to the Mets. It hurts to sit among snarky Mets fans and hear them snarking. But it did hurt less to know I only paid $5 and could actually move away to another location if I chose! ;-) Shea Stadium sucks, and I got this out of a NY Mets fan who was talking to me.

As for the Yankees. Bah. Okay, they have a bunch of great players but Bah. If we still have Ted Turner as our patron saint, we would be Owning Some of Said Yankee Doodles. Bah. Darn Time Warner Cheapos.

And wow, you've got a good eye, girlfriend, to see which one was my shoe! I love my faux gator shoes. I have a similar pair in silver ;-). I'm like that. Like one, find it in all colors to match all clothes. Simple.

As for the Mission Impossible...man, your favorite uber-spy was humming that tune all yesterday at the airport. Mission Impossible was almost a reality when it came to getting home, esp. without an ID! More later!

Oh, I am *obsessed* with JR Ward. She was my greatest find of last year. I really love Marjorie Liu, as well. I am really looking forward to 9/5 when JR Ward's next book comes out. *g*

I'll be around more. I love reading your entries. And the pics are great!

Leiha said...

I had no idea that was your first baseball game! If I would have known that I may have ventured out into the great beyond with you. Well, now that I will be a local we'll have to look at the schedule for next year and plan a baseball game date!

Thanks for sharing the pics, I love seeing them and I was there, LOL.
