There Isn't Enough Squee 
25th-Oct-2003 04:49 pm
Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
As I said. There simply isn't enough squee in the world for today.

We were walking down the street with a placard that read, "Obi Loves Qui", and this man on the street stopped us and said, "How do you read that?" And I was, "Obi Loves Qui". clara_swift said, "As in Obi-Wan Kenobi."

Went to Starbucks! ^_^ I learnt an amazing amount about TPM fandom, fic, and I can't wait to get Internet where I can read clara_swift's work. She has the most amazing grasp of a timeline, and she fits her stories into a huge framework - completely beyond my capabilities as a writer. She's an amazing person. *deep wonder*

Met up with clara_swift! She has the coolest T-Shirt - EVER. And - *is overcome by squee and fights to control self* - she has the most gorgeous Qui and Obi dolls ever. We went to Forbidden Planet, and nothing I saw there was half as gorgeous as her Qui and Obi. She showed me the Obi-Wan Unleashed figurine. Gorgeous. There's even a Yoda Unleashed, and a lady told her that Qui Unleashed is to be out soon.

AND. OH GOD. I met Robin Hobb.

By the strangest twist of fate, she was having a book signing in Forbidden Planet. My first, and most intensely stupid, question to her was, "Are you Robin Hobb?" *thwaps self* Did not realize until I was there that she would be having a book signing that day. So I bought another copy of Fool's Fate, and had that signed to my siblings and I.

I have a picture. I don't have the words to describe all of this. This is unbelievable. I think my year has just been made. I never thought I'd get to even see Robin Hobb.

I didn't dare tell her about Fitz/Fool.

Um. ammonium. Your name had better be Zhi Chang, because that's how I got Robin Hobb to autograph Golden Fool for you.

lacewood! I got Golden Fool autographed for you, too.

anyasy, I bought FAKE 3. 07goldeneye is also reading the series - and she likes it. *beams*

Christopher Lee is going to be in Forbidden Planet soon, having his books autographed.

Can't think now. Am at Internet Cafe at Piccadilly Circus with clara_swift. *beams* She understands my LJ fixation! *huge grin*

We went down to the Science Museum, and bought tickets for the LOTR exhibition. We took pictures of Obi and Qui outside the Science Museum. Several boys were very impressed by Obi and Qui. There's Obi and Qui looking disaffected, Obi and Qui reading the LOTR leaflet, Obi and Qui sitting on Fool's Fate and Golden Fool. We couldn't stop laughing. *giggles helplessly*

We went to Mcdonalds'. And took pictures of Obi and Qui in the window, sharing McNuggets. We're now in the Internet cafe. *huge grin*

This sounds like I'm in a fantasy, but it's real.

This is clara_swift's entry! She has a lovely postcard from Qui and Obi right here!

*beams incessantly*

*apologises to lauramcewan* I know I should use cut-tags. XD And I see that you liked the Obi and Qui postcard too! *beams*

Obi and Qui are now seated on the ledge between clara_swift's computer and mine.

I have taken pictures.

Hello - we are having sooooooooo much fun :o)
25th-Oct-2003 09:07 am (UTC)
OMG... A Qui Unleashed??? I have Obi...MUST HAVE QUI!

::pauses to contemplate the Qui::

She has the most amazing grasp of a timeline, and she fits her stories into a huge framework - completely beyond my capabilities as a writer. She's an amazing person. *deep wonder*


I can't wait to see these pictures! I wish I were there. You all get someone to take a pic of you two WITH Obi and Qui!

25th-Oct-2003 09:12 am (UTC)
People tell clara_swift the most amazing things! *beams*


*contemplates the Qui with you*

Yes, your Padawan is someone very special. ^_^

QUI AND OBI! They were the most gorgeous dolls I've ever seen! I wish they were real!

I can't wait to upload the pictures!
25th-Oct-2003 09:09 am (UTC)

25th-Oct-2003 09:13 am (UTC)
OMG gorgeous icon!

And you love FAKE, too! *hearts*

*glomps you* Ryo! Dee! *fangirls disturbingly* I love the whole shy, retiring, (apparently) innocent/ worldly, experienced dynamic!
25th-Oct-2003 09:22 am (UTC)
HEE I'll forgive the cut tags today, and I'll have to beat Clara soundly!
25th-Oct-2003 09:32 am (UTC)
*reproving look* She doesn't know what she's done to deserve that!

Abuse! *makes a dash for hurt/comfort fic*

*scribbles intently*
25th-Oct-2003 09:40 am (UTC)
And your msn did act up strangely when i see your nick online for a second too!
25th-Oct-2003 09:44 am (UTC)
*startled* Did you see my name on MSN? That's unusual - am not anywhere near MSN at the moment. But when I do try to log in, I appear for a second, see the presence of others online, and CAN'T TALK TO THEM. OH THE HORROR.

25th-Oct-2003 07:00 pm (UTC)
*smiles* I'm glad you like it! ; )

*hides* Apologies - I had no idea what your real name was, and Zhi was the closest I knew to any real name you had. I had doubts about whether you'd want a book signed to Ammonium. ^_^

Wake not your Padawan, Master ^_^
25th-Oct-2003 08:31 pm (UTC)
You met Robin Hobb in person! What's she like? XD

And I repeat, I loooooooooove you. That was too, too lovely of you. ^_____________^
26th-Oct-2003 07:22 am (UTC)
And I forgot to add: You should have mentioned Fitz/Fool. >3 They were practically meant to be, dammit, what does she mean setting us readers up for a fall like that? XD
26th-Oct-2003 12:01 am (UTC)
Omigosh. You were mentioning Robin Hobb so much these few days/weeks and she just appears in front of you for you to ask "Are you Robin Hobb?' It sounds like an unwitting dream come true! I'm so glad for you, dear! *hugs* Sounds like a wonderful, day (shows us photosssssssss!) spent with Clara-san, Obi and Qui! *laughs*
27th-Oct-2003 01:47 pm (UTC)
I KNOW! It's wonderful, isn't it? *hugs you with sheer glee*

It's definitely like waking up and finding that a dream's become real.

Like you, I think. ^_^

26th-Oct-2003 12:04 am (UTC)

26th-Oct-2003 03:38 am (UTC)
