So you know those conversations that you think you've imagined? The ones where you wake up and breathe a sigh of relief that they probably happened in some sort of alternate reality where you're the Rock Chick who Can. Do. Music. And. Other. Such. Cool. Stuff ?

Turns out they were reeeeeeal! Who knew?

So thanks to  [ profile] david_devereux  at Eastercon, along with [ profile] maeve_the_red  I will now be performing in this . . .

confession time!

I've never played Rock Band, in fact I think the last computer game I played was space invaders!!! *panicked phone call to nephew!* eekk!

Then it turns out twittering can get you into even more trouble . . .

@Suzanne: Enjoyed Evolution, Wrath of God and Death yesterday at the OLF!
@Big_Jim: You enjoyed evolving!? Have you become some sort of superhero Suzanne?
@Suzanne: Superhero? Of course, I can fly . . . *jumps up, flaps arms, doesn't leave ground* oh wait, umm, maybe not, so it's back to the amoeba stage for now . . .
@Big_Jim: Ahh! You evolved but didn't get the features you wanted? So you're going to start again! See you in 6 billion years . . . also, in 6 billion years, I expect to see you with glorious wings! How would you see yourself, with bird wings? Butterfly?
Suzanne: *ponders* *Googles* *tweets*
In 6 billion years - I might just manage this!

But for two weeks time for Eastercon? As promised by [ profile] danacea . . .


So come and see if I can squeeze 6 billion years of evolution into two weeks *desperately Googles angel wings* and join in the Forbidden Planet Rock Band fun, and Win. Wonderful. Fantastic. Prizes!!!

Relax, Suzanne. Everything is going to turn out Just Fine.

We will rock. Then everybody else will rock. Then you'll run off and do an exceedingly cool panel while we're still rocking, then you'll come back and rock some more. Easy!

What could possibly go wrong?

'What could possibly go wrong?'

Um, there's been something I've been meaning to tell you, David . . . you haven't actually heard me sing, have you?

*Runs away before David requests an audition*

Yay! An elephant *g* And yes, I am on twitter, just newly born and not much past the amoeba stage there either yet :-)

We will all rock.
The site.
From Orbit.
Or possibly from Gollancz.

The Gollancz crew will send them into orbit [probably to a galaxy far, far away if they listen to my singing *g*]

You aren't the only one who's not exactly computer-game-literate. I actually had a go at this game at a friend's house last week: I sucked, and I managed to hurt my wrist (it's better now).
