California dreamin': True Blood Paleyfest Los Angeles- will you be there ?

OK, my bags are packed and I'm ready to go ... ( see note below)

We really are all ready: we have tickets to the True Blood Paleyfest panel discussion, airline reservations, our hotel and car rented ... YIPPEE! The lovely Nocturnalinnc and my traveling buddy, ObjectDesire will be traveling in "Team Dallas "

I have been in contact with about 15 others who I know from wiki, the blog or the radio show who will also be there and I am collecting contact info for the various teams and individuals who'd like to maybe meetup with some other fans.

We are planning at least 2 meetups while there, if you are going and want to know about the meetups send me an email !

Put "True Blood Paley" in the subject please .

Email: True Blood in Dallas

This first line in this email is actually a line from a Sookie book, I got this wonderful email recently from RFlatstone.

Hey Dallas,

I noticed this ...

“My bags are packed…” I sang.

“Well, I’m not so lonesome, I could cry,” Amelia said.

All Together Dead, chapter 8
These are a reference to the first and last line, respectively, of the first verse of the Peter, Paul and Mary song “Leaving on a Jet Plane.

Thanks Flat ! Well, it's a song popularized by Peter, Paul & Mary and from their 1969 album called, Album 1700. It was however, written by John Denver in 1967.

The stanza is:

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go
I'm standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin, its early morn
The taxis waiting, hes blowin his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could cry.

Fascinating videos
Peter, Paul and Mary and umm John



1972
