Tor Post: “Surprise Joss Whedon, Pillow Fight Tricia Helfer, and More in Today’s Premiere of Husbands Season 2”

Hey there, kids! Brad Bell and Jane Espenson’s wonderful web series, Husbands, saw its Season 2 premiere today! Have you seen it yet? Well, what are you waiting for? Check it out at LoveHusbands.com!

If you’d rather hear what I thought about it first, you should check out my review over at Tor.com!

Excerpt:

It seems that, in season two, Team Husbands has embraced the fact that a) Brad Bell is a huge nerd, b) Jane Espenson is a huge nerd, and c) a huge portion of their fan base is a bunch of huge nerds. Geek bait abounds in this first episode, from the cameos to the incorporation of internet life to mentions of Star Wars. And that’s a good thing. The people that make web shows go viral are generally the same people who go to comic cons and try to make web shows of their own. But knowing their audience doesn’t just benefit the show from a marketing standpoint, it pays off massively in the writing of the second season, making the dialogue even snappier (if that’s at all possible) by using a shorthand that’s more easily understood by more people who actually watch the show. Whereas the Cheeks of season one seemed to be speaking in a way geared more toward readers of In Touch, this season balances Cheeks’ high-profile celebutante existence with a tech-savvy, nerdy sensibility that is both genuine and resonates with their audience. Bell and Espenson are an amazing team, and their work together has gelled even better for season two.

ChinaShop Post: WonderCon 2012

Me, Tom Merrit, Veronica Belmont, and Felicia Day at WonderCon 2012.

Better late than never! ChinaShop was severely backlogged due to SXSW and Fashion Week coverage, and so my WonderCon post has gone up today. But that’s a good thing! Because now, I can have your attention all to myself! HA!

Yeah, that’s it. This was all part of my DASTARDLY PLAN. Ahem. Here’s an excerpt from “WonderCon 2012: Comic-Con International Comes to Anaheim.”

Excerpt:

This was a first for WonderCon, which usually takes place in San Francisco. Renovations at the Moscone Center necessitated the move, but allowed those in the Los Angeles area easier access to SDCC’s sister convention, giving more L.A. geeks the chance to attend a well-run show with a great track record closer to home. It’s surprising that, despite L.A’s large and active geek community, not to mention all the high-profile geeks that live here, that they have so few conventions that cater specifically to the L.A. market. While it’s likely that WonderCon will return to the Moscone next year, I’m curious about the numbers and whether or not the show had more or less traffic this year. (Official numbers have yet to be released) It would be great if Comic-Con International spread the con love all over California. SDCC in San Diego, APE in San Francisco, and WonderCon in Anaheim would be a nice spread.

GeekGirlCon: The Squee-port

I’m also working on an “official” “journalisty” (journalisty? Shut up. It’s a word now.) post about GeekGirlCon for Tor.com, but since this is my blog, I’m giving you my personal, squee-ful account of the first ever GeekGirlCon in all its inspiring, wonderful glory.

But first:

Union Station, Portland, OR

I took an Amtrak from Los Angeles to Seattle for the con. Actually, I was supposed to take a train from L.A. to Seattle. What happened instead was that that legendary L.A. Traffic™ caused me to miss my train, so I had to take a bus from L.A. to Bakersfield, a train from Bakersfield to Martinez, then I’d be able to catch up to my original train there and take it the rest of the way to Seattle. Whew! The things I do for geekery!

Somewhere in Oregon.

Eugene, OR

The GeekGirlCon Vendor Room

All of that to get to…GEEKGIRLCON!

GeekGirlCon was the most chill, welcoming, and inspiring con I’ve ever been to. It was about more than pop culture. It’s not hyperbolic to say that it was about changing the world. Granted, it was primarily about changing the world by focusing on media – but that’s what we all have to do, right? Find our own little corner of the world that we’re interested in and make it better?

Sure, there were some technical glitches I heard about, and the timing of the panels could’ve been tweaked to give con-goers at the Seattle Center time to go from room to room across the expansive grounds, but on the whole, GeekGirlCon was run extremely well, and in many ways better than other larger cons I’ve been to. The staff was extremely helpful, the design of the show was great, and all of the programming was actually substantive. There wasn’t a “fluff” panel on the entire schedule. Each one either taught you how to do something, or brought together panelists who were truly knowledgeable and articulate about the topic being addressed. Unlike other cons, there were panels I was genuinely upset about not being able to get to. The panels also weren’t just about promoting something. Even those that were clearly about a new release (Scott Westerfeld’s panel promoting his illustrated guide to the world of Leviathan; my, ahem, panel about Whedonistas) were interactive and provided more information and insight than a mere overview of a product.

Nancy Holder, Jane Espenson, and Me at the Whedonistas signing at GeekGirlCon 2011

The Whedonistas signing in the morning on the first day was a lot of fun! But it was also really funny. It’s times like this when I’m made accutely aware of how low I am on the writerly totem pole. I’m sitting next to Jane Espenson and Nancy Holder at the University Book Store table for this signing, and people were handing me their books expecting me to ring them up while asking me how much other books on the table cost. 🙂 I was like “Um, I’m in this book, actually…kthxbye.” Heh. Such is life. One day, my name will be on the COVER of a book, and then all those people will pay! THEY’LL ALL PAY! You know…for my book. What did you think I meant? 🙂 I did manage to get some copies of On the Ground Floor into people’s hands – I gave them to everyone who bought a copy of Whedonistas. Getting my work out there, and all that…

See that empty plastic book stand? That's where our copies of Whedonistas USED to be! We sold out in an hour! Boo-yah!

Incidentally, the University Bookstore had limited copies of Whedonistas, ordering on the “safe side” because this was the first GeekGirlCon. Whedonistas sold out during our morning signing. ALWAYS order many copies when Jane Espenson is doing a signing, is all I’m sayin’…

Mariah Huehner, Jane Espenson, Nancy Holder, and Me on the Whedonistas panel at GeekGirlCon 2011

At the Whedonistas panel, Jane, Nancy, and Mariah – all of whom are more experienced at everything than I am – gave the audience thoughtful replies to their questions about everything from Whedon’s work to women in the television/publishing/comics industries. Also, we had a giveaway where trivia questions = a signed Husbands crew hat from Jane and a free copy of Whedonistas. Much fun! I was so nervous about the panel all day, it being my first time moderating one, but people kept coming up to me as I was walking around during the rest of the con and were like “The Whedonistas panel was great!” or “Thanks for a great panel! It was awesome!”

It’s sometimes easy, as a relative newbie to this “Putting Your Writing Out There, Publicly” thing, to feel like I don’t matter, or that I’m not getting anywhere. But the fact that I was sitting on a panel with these ridiculously talented women, and afterwards was treated as if I deserved to be there? Well, that made me feel rather good.

I also felt really good, because I felt like I’d actively helped promote Jane’s new webseries, Husbands, which is one that I believe deserves oodles of attention along with The Guild and Awkward Embraces. When I interviewed her about it for Tor, I asked her to be on a panel for Whedonistas at GeekGirlCon, but I mentioned it too, because I thought it would be a great place to reach a target audience for Husbands. She was already scheduled to be in Seattle doing a talk that was done in partnership with GGC, but she was unaware of the con itself. As she told people about Husbands at the signing, and at the panel, there were people who hadn’t heard about it, despite being fans of hers, and I think she was happy that she was reaching people she hadn’t yet reached. I’m proud to have had a hand in that, and will take this moment on my personal blog to pat myself on the back.

*pats self*

I love bringing people/stuff together for Mutually Beneficial Awesome. 🙂

Bonnie Burton

And then there were the other folks I got to meet! In addition to meeting the fabulous Mariah Huehner for the first time, I got to meet Bonnie Burton (whom I’d chatted with on Twitter, and who’s friends with just about all of my other L.A. friends) who is lovely; writer Amy Berg (Eureka and The 4400) very, very briefly; and Mary Higgins, at long last! After years of the two of us writing for Pink Raygun and corresponding via the intarwebz, Mary and I were finally in the same place at the same time. She’s got a really fun webseries she’s produced called Mind My Brains, Darling! If you love Britishness…and zombies…check it out! 🙂

Me and Javier Grillo-Marxuach

I met Javier Grillo-Marxuach, whom I knew primarily from Lost, but who’s written a jillion other things (like The Middleman comic and television show, for instance). This was particularly exciting for me, not only because I was (am?) Lost-obsessed, but because having a firmly-established, talented television writer/showrunner (and comics writer!) who also happens to be Puerto Rican for me to look up to is rawther nice. Between him and Jane, I’ve got role models that appeal to both my brown-ness and my ovary-having-ness covered! 🙂

Anita Sarkeesian and Me

I also got to meet the fabulous Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency, who headed up the vlogging panel along with Maile Martinez of Reel Girls. I’d seen her YouTube videos before – especially this one she did on Sam Adama from Caprica, which I disagreed with heartily, but whatevs – but didn’t put two and two together that this was the same woman until about halfway through the panel. 🙂 She’s incredibly smart; really knowledgeable about feminist history while also being a huge pop culture geek, and she effectively combines the two. She pretty much does through video what I do with my writing. I’m looking forward to getting to know her better – and taking notes and pointers as I do!

And then there were the lovely and wonderful people I met throughout the con! There was the lovely Jedi family whose picture I took (you haven’t emailed me! I have your photo if you want it!), Jenn (of JustJennDesigns fame), Christina (whom I’d met at the Single Geeks L.A. event, but got to talk to more this time around), Ginny (she of the fabulous Ravenclaw cosplay), Vavia (who helped me pass the time between panels), Talina (who helped me figure out how I can edit videos on a PC), Ryan (of the awesome kilt ensemble)… So many lovely people, all of them as friendly as could be.

And Gail Simone totally let me cut in front of her in line at the Registration table, because I was cutting it close for my morning signing. 🙂

GeekGirlCon was an amazing, inviting, inspiring, and safe environment for women and geekery. The entire staff did an incredible job at making it all happen. (Shout-out to Jennifer Stuller, the programming director!) I’m really looking forward to it next year, and you should, too!

See You At Geek Girl Con!

I’M GOING TO GEEK GIRL CON!

Thanks to several generous folks in response to my This Little Whedonista effort, as well as a well-timed direct deposit from one of my writerly employers, I WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE IT TO GEEK GIRL CON! I can barely contain my excitement.

Why? Well, lemme see:

1) I’ll be crashing with the fabulous Cunning Minx, and apparently, there may be a brownie and porn party if I time my arrival just so.

2) I’ll be doing a signing for Whedonistas along with with JANE ESPENSON, NANCY HOLDER, and  MARIAH HUEHNER at the University Book Store table (Booth  308-309) Saturday, October 8th – 10:30-11:30AM! Come on by, grab a copy of this fabulous collection of Whedon-related essays, and have a chat with us!

3) I’ll be moderating a Whedonistas panel that same day from 5;30-6:30PM with JANE ESPENSON, NANCY HOLDER, and MARIAH HUEHNER. There will be talk of Whedon (natch), as well as the Whedonistas reading short excerpts from their pieces in the book, plus some Q&A, and some Whedon Trivia, where you might be able to walk away with a free copy of Whedonistas (and perhaps some other prizes!). Do you love Joss Whedon? (and really, how could you not?) Think you know everything about the man and his work? Put your knowledge to the test at the Whedonistas panel at Geek Girl Con!

4) My Geek Girl Traveler self will be staying in Seattle for the week following Geek Girl Con as I explore the city for geeky hotspots! It’s my first time in the city, and I’m looking forward to it! If you have suggestions for geeky Seattle locales I shouldn’t miss, email them to me at geekgirltraveler[at]gmail[dot]com!

I would like to take a moment to thank Angela VonSchmittou, Ken Rokos, Matt Curry, Olga Branson, Robert Ropars, and Jade Takakuwa for their generosity in response to my. I will be sending you your copies of On the Ground Floor and/or your autographed copies of Whedonistas once I return from the con.

If you haven’t yet purchased a copy of On the Ground Floor and/or you’d like me to get you an autographed copy of Whedonistas while I’m at the con, the terms of my This Little Whedonista plea will continue to stand through October 5th! Get me thine orders!

And I’ll see you in Seattle! 🙂

Whedonistas Panel At Geek Girl Con!

As you might have seen on Twitter or Facebook, I have the privilege of moderating a Whedonistas panel at Geek Girl Con in October! SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8TH from 5:30-6:30PM to be exact. There will also be a pre-panel signing that morning, from 10:30AM to 11:30AM in the vendor room at the University Book Store table (booth 308-309).

But whom will be on this panel, do you ask? I mean, in addition to fabulous, wonderous me? 😉

None other than the fabulously talented JANE ESPENSON (Buffy, BSG, Caprica, Torchwood, and her new webseries, Husbands), who has an exclusive interview in Whedonistas; NANCY HOLDER (NY Times bestselling author of The Watcher’s Guide among a million other things) whose piece in Whedonistas talks about her time spent on the set of Buffy; and MARIAH HUEHNER (IDW Comics – writer on Angel and True Blood comics, among others!), whose Whedonistas essay talks about why she loves Buffy even when Buffy is sometimes difficult to love. I get to share a stage with these women, y’all. So, if you can get to Seattle, you need to come check it out!

If only to catch me when I pass out and fall off the dais because of the sheer awesome of it all.

So, the deets once again:

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8TH

Do you love Joss Whedon? (and really, how could you not?) Think you know everything about the man and his work? Put your knowledge to the test at the Whedonistas panel at Geek Girl Con!

L.A. Year One: …And I Say Hello

Why, thank you Santa Monica! You're not so bad yourself!

I have officially been in L.A. for a week. Here are some observations I’ve made in that time:

– The weather in Santa Monica is schizophrenic. It’s warm, it’s cold, it’s hot, it’s cloudy, it’s sunny…

– I should get a car.

– All that schizophrenia still lands on the side of beautiful.

– I walk a bit slower here. And that’s not a bad thing.

– The bus isn’t as bad as they say, but…

– The bus rides ARE as long as they say.

– I should get a car, apparently.

– Sepulveda is fucking LONG.

– There are some really quality people here.

– The Santa Monica Library is the best library I’ve ever been to, except for the main branch of the New York Public Library.

– The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf coffee is really, really good (and there’s one in NYC now, apparently!).

– OK, get off my back about the fucking car.

– The bus drivers here are really sweet. However,

– The bus drivers will also hit on me reluctantly. Reluctantly, because they think I’m 19, and are happily surprised by my legality when I say I’m 32.

– I will not be dating any bus drivers any time soon.

– Look, do you want to buy me a fucking car?!

This orange tree is in someone's FRONT YARD. Like, UP THE BLOCK from me. You know, how you do when you live IN A STATE WHERE YOU CAN GROW ORANGES.

The only bad thing I’ve experienced, and it’s not really a bad thing so much as… *sigh*, is the insistence that I need to get a car. It wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t have to hear it from every single person I’ve met out here. And it’s always good-natured, and it’s always well-intentioned, but still. Annoying. First of all, just because something bothers you, doesn’t mean it will bother me. Secondly, I’m from New York; weirdos on public transportation, 2 1/2-3hr commutes, and unpredictable maintainance are not completely foreign to me. And third, telling someone who just moved here a few days ago, and who’s living with a friend to save up for an apartment and said magical, mystical car-thing is akin to going to a slum and telling the people you meet, “You know, you should really think about getting some food. Your life will be so much easier!” Uh-huh.

To quote Forest Gump, “That’s all I have to say about that.”

Bubbles and sarongs: it's How I Roll.

Car issues aside, I’ve been really liking it here so far. I’m so lucky that, in addition to getting to live in one of the more gorgeous towns in L.A., I’ve come into a group of really quality people. Heather, the first face I saw when I got here, since she picked me up from the airport, was really happy to see me! I spent my first night in town with her before going to my semi-permanent digs in Santa Monica. But between Heather and Santa Monica, I went to a ChinaShop Magazine meeting. You know, one of the sites I write for that pays my bills? 🙂 Anyway, we met at The Fat Dog, a really cute place with a great beer selection and amazing jalepeno mac and cheese, and I got to see old faces as well as meet fellow contributors I’d only ever known by their byline. What a talented, fun, welcoming group of folks! One of the great things about moving to L.A. is that I’m closer to these people and feel more emotionally invested in the site, the same way I have been in Tor.com having gotten to know those folks personally. (Don’t worry, Stubby! I still love you!)

But if you wanna talk about warm welcomes, the award goes to my friend, Maritza, and her husband Gregger, who’ve opened up their home to me. This place is awesome, and I couldn’t have asked for a better neighborhood than Santa Monica in which to set up shop. But seriously, Maritza has made me feel so at home. Not only did she provide me with an entire dresser to put my stuff in so I wouldn’t have to live out of suitcases, and not only has she made me feel comfortable about using anything in the apartment that I need to, but she was considerate enough to plan on going away for a few days with Sara, her 2 year old, to meet up with her husband on vacation so that I could have the place to myself for a bit and get settled in and used to my new city before taking on babysitting duties.

And what an adorable little 2 year old I’ll be watching…

Maritza took this just before Nap Time. Apparently, Sara had just said "I'm reading!" 🙂

Such a sweet, polite, and intelligent little girl. Maritza and Gregger know how to raise little people! Seriously, she says Please and Thank You, “Yes, ma’am” and “No, ma’am”, and can even be reasoned with even in the midst of a not-so-bad tantrum. Also, she’s only 2, but she knows all of her letters, and even though she can’t read yet, she knows how to tell a properly-structured story! She’ll pick up a book, open it, say “Once Upon a Time”, then tell a story she makes up based on the pictures with a beginning, middle, and end! She’s going to be lots of fun, I can tell! 🙂

In addition to my new roomies, I’ve also been making the rounds of quality geek girls in the area. Some I’ve already met, like Amy, and Geek Girl Diva (whose real name I know but shant reveal under penalty of death!). There’s the lovely Theresa (another one? Uh-oh!), a fellow geek with whom I’d only associated online before, who was kind enough to throw me a Welcome to L.A. pool party so I could meet some folks! I met Vicki and Emily, who are awesome, got to see Jessica again, and met Stephanie. I didn’t see Jess and Stephanie for long, because I arrived late-ish, and they had other commitments to get to, but Stephanie had brought a cake, which entertained us in her stead, and even sort of inspired an upcoming geek girl venture! (Stay tuned!)

Wait. You mean pool parties can happen any time of year here?! THAT'S CRAZY! (clockwise: Theresa, Vicki, Geek Girl Diva, Emily, and Me!)

Emily can't stand looking at the cute as Amy cozies up to Diamond, THE CUTEST DOG EVER. (or she's at least in the Top Five.)

I mean, seriously. LOOK AT THAT FACE.

Heather lounges with Theresa, the hostess with the mostest.

Since that party, I’ve met up with a writer I’ll be doing assistanty things for – Bob Harris, who’s working on a really cool book called The 1st International Bank of Bob (Bloomsbury), about the awesomeness of Kiva and microfinance, his personal experiences traveling the world to see what his loans have accomplished, and how average folks like you and me can, like, SAVE THE WORLD. You know, if that sort of thing means anything to you. But, you know, whatever. 🙂 Anyway, we talked about the assistanty things I’ll be doing, which I’m very excited about, because I’m a huge fan of Kiva and Bob’s lending team is, like, one of the biggest ones they’ve got! It’s like I’ve got front-row seats to Awesome.

I also got to hang with some other illustrious geeks, like Sarah, whom I’d only ever talked to online before, and who is as kind and smart in person as I hoped she’d be. And I got to see Jenni again. You may know her from the time she sang “I’m On a Boat” at karaoke. 🙂 This time, we went to a comics event at the Barnes & Noble on the 3rd Street Promenade for the HC release of Top Cow’s ECHOES by Joshua Hale Fialkov and Rahsan Ekedal, which looks amazing, and I can’t wait to read it. After that, Jenni and I went out for a drink and a bite, and I realized that she’s totes good people.

So, I’ve been seeing people I know, getting to know other people, and having a surprisingly active social life for a girl who just moved to town! What a warm welcome indeed! Oh, and I also conducted my first L.A. interview (Jane Espenson. Cheeks. Husbands. Tor.com. Monday and Tuesday. BE THERE!) that went really well and felt all fancy-schmancy even though I was rocking pigtails and a shirt with Kermit the Frog on it that day. But most importantly, I’ve had plenty of time to WRITE, which is really the point of all of this. And what’s truly awesome, is that I get to write in a place like THIS:

Maritza carries Sara as we all walk to the playground. The playground that's on THE BEACH.

Even cloudy, this is still pretty awesome.

I live 3 BLOCKS from this! That's Santa Monica Pier in the distance. It's overcast, but you can still make out the ferris wheel.

I told Bob that I both feel like I just left New York yesterday, and like I left New York a billion years ago. The reason for that, he said, is because the weather doesn’t change very much. Apparently, it’ll feel like no one ever ages and time passes really slowly, and I’ll feel both like a new arrival and an old-timer for a long time. It’s like something out of the Twilight Zone. Good thing I’m a huge fan of Rod Serling!

Kim, someone I know through ChinaShop and whom I spoke with at the meeting, has been living here for over 12 years, and says she loves L.A., because unlike other cities that define you, L.A. forces you to define yourself. Because, let’s face it, no one wants to let a city known for movie magic and fakery define them. So, you’re forced to define yourself, and it often leads to deeper introspection and a more grounded sense of self. I never would’ve thought of it that way, but the more people I meet, the more true that feels. So it’s like, New York is where you go to follow your dreams, and L.A. is where you go to figure out what your dreams really are?

How’s THAT for some dime-store psychology? 🙂

Well, thanks for the warm welcome, L.A. I’m looking forward to getting to know you.

I’M GOING TO GALLIFREY ONE!

Awesome drawing by weallscream4icecream at DeviantArt

After only a WEEK into my Send Teresa to Gally effort that had a deadline of February 5th, I am already OVER MY GOAL! This means, not only can I afford the plane fare to get to L.A. in February, but I can afford to eat and stuff, too!

I’M GOING TO GALLIFREY ONE, BITCHES!

(can you tell I’m excited?)

I’m writing this post, first and foremost to say THANK YOU! First, to the Geek Girl Army that so willingly and graciously used their social networking mojo to spread the word of my effort far and wide. Thank you Jill Pantozzi, Janna O’Shea, Kristin Rielly, Amy Ratcliffe, and Kat Hill for your support, your enthusiasm, and your willingness to join forces for the sake of one lowly member of the geek girl community. Each of you is truly awesome. And as if the promotion wasn’t enough, some of you also bought copies of On The Ground Floor! I’m so grateful to know you ladies, even though I’ve yet to meet some of you in person!

I have to thank my earliest donors, who were on the bandwagon long before it was cool. 🙂 Thank you Lisa Fary, George Sirois, Arlene Dreifus, Deborah Stanish (one of my Whedonistas editors!), GeekGirlDiva, Kevin Dilmore, Melissa Kutteroff, Angela VonSchmittou, and El Tremendo, for your generosity on the very first day!

Lastly, I have to thank everyone who’s given since; some of whom have given a ridiculous amount of money to someone they don’t know all in the name of geeky solidarity. I am forever grateful to Ruth T., Abby Geiger, Norman Mirotchnick, Michael Lusby, Pema Newton, Christian Young, James Stewart, Doug Welch, and Rhea Dowhower.

I don’t know what I did to deserve all this kindness. Actually, I don’t think it had anything to do with me at all. I mean, maybe it did, but the fact is, people really are good and kindhearted if you give them a chance to be. I’ve always believed that, and my tendency is to give people the benefit of the doubt, even when the world tells me not to. It’s nice to be able to point to something like this and be able to say, “See? I told you so!” 🙂 Thank you all so much!

Now, I’m going to keep this effort going, because 1) conventions are expensive, and my friends out in L.A. may or may not be able to cart my butt around for a week, so I forsee a lot of cab/bus rides in my future, and 2) I did say this would be over February 5th. So, if you were thinking about buying a copy of On the Ground floor to support my Gallifrey One effort, YOU STILL CAN.

As an added incentive, when I get to Gallifrey, I’m going to snag two copies of Whedonistas to give away at random to two people who have donated between January 17 and February 5th. (So, yes. If you’ve already donated, you’d still be eligible!) They may even be signed by my fellow panelists, including Jane Espenson. We’ll see what I can do. 🙂

So, yes, THANK YOU for getting me to Gallifrey One. If you’re so inclined, feel free to spread the link around between now and February 5th with the knowledge that anyone who purchases a copy of On the Ground Floor by then will be entered to win one of two autographed copies of Whedonistas.

And stay tuned here at The Teresa Jusino Experience (or at my Facebook page, or Twitter) for more ramblings about the road to Gallifrey, and how anyone who’ll be in the L.A. area between February 13-20 will have the chance to see me and say hello!

THANK YOU!!
