--Return of the Lost Girl cast. They are so fun to see!
--Yesteryear Lagoon on Thursday night- way to go Alternate History track.
--KPOP dance class
--Hilton Lobby parties; Hilton is the new and improved Pulse Lounge, if you asked me
--Marriott Fountain Karaoke! Big thanks to ATL local "Dan the Man" for setting it up
--NC-17 Fanfiction Panel- hilarious and community-driven

- Getting to know some D*C friends better that I have briefly met before

Ricky Whittle asking me to sniff his arm pits...?  :o Well, almost.  ;) (short answer: sort of talcum powdery)
"You and I remember Budapest very differently."

"I like feet."

"Am I being tangible? ...Gary?"

"How quickly can we buy this building?"

"...doors and corners..."

"Whatever just happened, blame it on the pig."

I don't know what that means, but I love it! :)

someone asked him what kind of cologne he used. ( :o )  He said it was just himself, and it came from his armpits, and he was wandering around the ballroom at the time (followed at a distance by a couple of volunteers, which i thought was odd...) and caught me looking appalled, and plopped down close next to me to see what i thought.  i gave a thumbs up.  (seriously, he smelled fine.  nothing special.)

what was odd was that when he was on The 100 panels in past years, he was very quiet and low-key.  this was an American Gods panel and he was bouncing off the walls.  (haven't seen the show yet, so I don't know what the character is like...)

You should really watch American Gods, it is visually stunning, the writing is excellent.
I can't wait for season 2.
He was sitting at Karaoke at the bar for along while listening, so was the whole crew from Lost Girl.  They stayed for a long while.
