AA was only about 10 days ago, but now it seems longer. Time is such a strange thing! I had never been to AA or Botcon before but always wanted to go. It didn't disappoint. Highlights included meeting everyone and hanging out, spending hours fossicking through TFs on sale, old and new, finding and buying some of my favourite TF's, art workshops (in which I think some vague improvement wasn't my imagination) and watching old and new TF episodes.

I also had fun watching artists work and listening in on conversations - though I was rather shy about talking myself as I'm not knowledgeable on comics and was afraid of a blank expression appearing when some poignant reference was made (!) but I did get some lovely pics signed, including this one:

So here's what's happened with my AA booking.

I send off the payment, and get a response back: 'Thanks for the money. No problem - but we just need your full name and DOB to finalize the booking. Apparently I didn't give them this. Wherever it was asked for.

Me: 'No worries. Here are the details you require.'

Them - SILENCE

Me, about a week later - "Uh - hello? Is this in order now? As I need to book a hotel - and I want to book the hotel the convention is at, and I know you can't do that without a valid booking. So can you let me know ASAP. Please ...."

Them - MORE SILENCE

Me - having whined to friends on the weekend - another email: "Um - could you PLEASE let me know whether you have finalized this, as I am traveling 12,000 miles to come to this event and I really would like to book this hotel! Smiley face.

SILENCE SILENCE SILENCE.

So here's my Q's: 1) Did anyone else have similar difficulties, and 2) If so what did you do about it and 3) Does anyone know the email address of an actual  PERSON  (rather than a general address) that I could ask to sort this out?

Eternally grateful to anyone who can help me here! You get tons of cookies etc when I get there, if I can 1) get in and 2) don't have to sleep on the streets :-)
