Sheila added a status update: I registered for a supporting membership to Loncon - or, in other words, I registered to be eligible to vote for the 2014 Hugos.

Stephanie Perkins
“I wish friends held hands more often, like the children I see on the streets sometimes. I'm not sure why we have to grow up and get embarrassed about it.”
Stephanie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss

Patrick Rothfuss
“The truth is that the world is full of dragons, and none of us are as powerful or cool as we’d like to be. And that sucks. But when you’re confronted with that fact, you can either crawl into a hole and quit, or you can get out there, take off your shoes, and Bilbo it up.”
Patrick Rothfuss

Djuna Barnes, Nightwood
