My experience with Montreal Cabbies rivals my expierence with Philipino Cabbies. Needless to say I did a lot of subwaying and walking while in Montreal.
Note to self: must go to World Con.
Is that George R.R. Martin in the elevator with you?
that is george r. r. martin in the elevator with me. he was not my bitch.
i like your icon -- did you make that?
Haha, I saw the picture of you with a shirt stating as much. BRILLIANT. How can anyone not love NFG?!
I can't take credit, it was made by masquerade_arts
Hey look, it's grrm
in that last picture. Did you... know that?
Oooh, and misunderstruck
in that hallway shot.
i'm pleased to say i was the first person george spoke to when he got to the party.
oh, and your friends showed up and said "hi from yags, you're invited to our party saturday" -- so i'll be there.
Rock on! The party will be 20% less awesome without me, but that still leaves a party made up of 80% pure awesome.
How exciting! I'm so very excited about GRRM's Fire and Ice Pilot beginning filming in October! :) I love when my fandoms collide.
Don't you just ADORE the Montreal metro system???!!!! I know I loved it!

Oh my gods I've had my photo taken, and posted, by Kyle Freaking Cassidy!
See you at the panel.
That looks like so much fun!
I had the exact opposite experience in Montreal. A cabbie took me and friends to an after-hours restaurant and got us all dinner before comping the fare. It's my single best cabbie experience ever.
It's good to see the bathroom picture, although the one with me isn't there... (I was in the red shirt). Any way I can see that one? =)
I have been to Montreal several times and have never had a good experience with a cab driver. I take the public transit and/or walk. I'd rather do that and use a map then deal with the cab drivers.
All right, I give up. What does it say on Neil's shirt?
something like "i'm part of a small minority, i read books"
Wheeeee! I guess non-California Worldcons are more fun, or maybe you just know way more interesting people. I so look forward to more posts.
Oh, hey, look, it's me! I'm right behind Neil on the left in the picture with Scalzi.

Erm, Montreal cabbies . . . they can be great or they can be terrible. Most of the time when they're terrible it's because you don't speak French. I find our cabbies are worst to people leaving hotels.
BMW (Bus-Metro-Walk) is normally your best bet.

Your restroom pic
Hey, can I put your restroom pic in the Neil Gaiman World's End forum Restroom Thread? (which is where we put pictures of ourselves in restrooms - or rather bathrooms where I come from) What do you think? Would that be ok?

Montreal cabbies, leaving hotels
Mine spent the entire ride complaining that he'd waited in line at the Delta for two and a half hours, only to be stuck with a fare who wanted to go no farther than Gare Central. I explained that I had a heart condition and a very heavy suitcase; still, he couldn't beLIEVE his terrible terrible luck. I had realized that it was a ridiculously short trip; he'd have gotten a much better tip if he'd just shut the **** up.
Cool shots, I wish I could have been there.
I recognize emilytheslayer
in that 3rd from last pic. The lass with short blue hair!
I am sorry I did not get a chance to sit for you, I was somewhat busy, however I was really glad to meet you and trillian stars. If GRRM left about the same time you did I must have blown right past you at the TOR party. I see you met the entourage for hire too.

This is necessary to finish a high level dissertation writing (http://www.exclusivethesis.com) while people are at study at the university. Thence, your supreme knowledge just about this topic is a a really good example for the thesis research composers.
