The day had a decent beginning. Got to the con, met up with everyone at the 11:00 am panel. Afterwards, pavaneofstars, grammarwoman, ailurophile6 and mercury973 decided to go downtown for a japadog. I was in the mood for chinese, so hipapheralkus and I decided to go to OnOn wonton.

We didn't quite make it out of the parkade. Right as we were going around the corner, something went CRUNCH and my car decided that it wasn't going anywhere else. I directed traffic around the blind corner for the next 45 minutes while waiting for hotel security or someone to show up. Finally they did. Am currently waiting for a tow truck while the lovely mercury973 keeps me company.

Eh. Well, for me the con is about hanging out with friends, and that is what I am doing, so it's not all bad.

Yike! I hope it isn't something expensive! Glad you're still having fun though--and lucky for you the car broke down in the parking lot!

But what the heck is a japadog?

Japadog is this hot dog stand downtownthat David Hewlett raved about on his twitter before the con last year. He was saying that he was going to get one when he got into Van, so a bunch of gals went down there to have a dog since he loves them.

Wish you were here. I ran into someone reading your fic while waiting for an autograph and showed off your picture. You are a BNF! :-)

So it's not a particular kind of hot dog, just a place--kind of like Orange Julius in the US? (They also sold hot dogs as well as smoothies)

Hah! I think not! That would mean I would have to hold long ranty posts (okay, c'mon SGU doesn't count!!) and have periodic flounces. :-) No seriously, who would *want* to be a BNF?? You showed her my pic? Presumably the one where I am standing in the background looking as though I am posing for a police line up? Because that's what all my pix look like, you know... :-)

So what's up with the car? Clunking and not moving sounds... expensive. :-(

Eek! Where's a handy puddlejumper and ... uh ... experienced pilot when you really need one?

Hope everything worked out and wasn't too expensive. :: hugs ::
