lobby. I generally only take the elevator down when I'm in heels anyway.
On the fifth floor, the elevator stopped and a young woman with two young daughters got on. I said hi, she said hi, the girls didn't say anything, and we rode down. I had to remind myself to exit the elevator without waiting and holding the door (although it would have been appropriate, since she had to herd those cats. I think. I don't know all the rules yet).
The hotel was very quiet when I walked in. I saw a sign directing visitors to the meeting rooms. There was a restroom between the entrance and the meeting room so I thought I'd take care of business while it was quiet and no-one might think to follow the "intruder" to see what she's up to. No, that's never happened, but I try to plan ahead and be safe and non-annoying no matter how I'm dressed. The ladies' room was empty while I was in there.
There was no sign-in desk this time, but I was greeted by a man who thrust a "visitor's choice" ballot into my hand and explained that I should vote for the model I thought was best. I thanked him and talked briefly about the models at his table and moved on.
I spoke with many of the guys who were exhibiting models. It was kind of lunch time, so people were
|Yes, it's paper|
|Also paper. The treads are made one piece at a time|
I spoke to one guy who's name I recognised as another old timer.
|Paper Laura Croft was very complex, according to the builder|
Near the end of the second room, one guy said "you're Meg from the list." I was floored and said "how did you know?" He said my picture shows up next to my posts. I had asked a question about the convention and he had answered it.
|I asked him to point to give me some scale!|
