I feel awful that I didn't get a chance to say thank you and a proper so-long to you and your wife this past weekend at ArmadilloCon. Dinner at Threadgill's was absolutely wonderful, and it was so kind of you to pick up the tab. I'd like to send you a signed copy of Bride of the Fat White Vampire as a little "thank-u" gift. I can't remember whether I left you my email address or not. . . if I didn't, please drop me a line through my website, and let me know where I can send the book.
Looking forward to seeing you and your family again at future cons! The project under discussion sounds really promising and fascinating, by the way. I'll definitely pick myself up a copy.

Hey, Andy --
Great to see you this weekend, man. That was a solid meal Saturday night at Threadgill's, wasn't it? Hope you're well after that nine-hour drive home to New Orleans. Congrats on all the love for the FAT WHITE VAMPIRE books.
We'll be in touch, I'm sure.
Best to you, Dara, and Levi,

And I definitely second that big thank you to Chris and Allison for the Threadgill's meal on Saturday night!!!

Hey, Andy, it was nice seeing you again, too. I'm just impressed you made it through the second helping of sides. That shows stamina!
Hope to see you again soon. I don't remember whether you said or not, but are you going to be in Boston next month for WorldCon?

You're welcome, John. I just feel a bit bad for Jess, as I think that we drag him off to Threadgill's damn near every time he's in town!

Chris, I'm afraid I'll be passing up WorldCon this year. However, Dara and I are planning to go to World Fantasy in Tempe, Arizona, and we hope we'll see you there.
John, it was terrific seeing you again. I had a very enjoyable drive through Austin Saturday night, looking for that Half Price Books (turns out it WAS on South Lamar, but I enjoyed the opportunity to see more of the town). The ride home to New Orleans wasn't nearly as painful as the drive to Austin, since I didn't run into construction delays. Still a loooong drive, though.

Hey, Threadgill's is fine by me. Good food, there.
It was good meeting you at the con, Andy. When I get the chance I'll definitely be reading your books.

Stop talking about Threadgills! I don't think I've eaten there since 1994, when I left Austin. It's just not fair, I tell you. Not fair.

You know what this thread needs? A group hug!
Okay, I'll slink away in shame now.
