Ready for my weekend

The last three days have been spent running around gossiping networking at the CBCA conference. I'm going to write a longer and more coherent post about it later this week, but for now, permit me some bullet points.
  • My fangirl moment was only tangentially related to Neil Gaiman. Standing at the Allen & Unwin stall, looking at Bruce Mutard's new graphic novel, a tall man looking over my shoulder. 'Eddie Campbell!' I say, and he looks quite surprised to be recognised. We chat about graphic novels and a possible new TV show that sounds fascinating.
  • Bernard Beckett is a great speaker and I can't wait to read Genesis.
  • I am horrified that this man is starring in the film of this book (which I just devoured) ERIC BANA IS NOT A LIBRARIAN.
  • There was a typo on a poster, proclaiming an "additive new series". Now with phenylalanine!
  • Why isn't my job title as awesome as Dr Mark Norman's, who is Senior Curator of Molluscs at Melbourne Museum??

I'd been avoiding all info about the TTW film! I read the book when it was first released and couldnt shake the image of Henry being played by Johnny Depp. I know... fangirl. but still. Its going to be hard to watch it with the cast as they are. I somehow think I'll like the 'movie in my mind' version better.

Oh Lili. Couldn't he just act? It would be, it would be so nice...Frankly I think Eric can be anything he chooses to be.
Noah Taylor would be noice though.

Eric Bana is in a time-honoured Hollywood tradition: the fantasy librarian. Ladies, form a queue. (heh, heh)
