Off to LaLa Land

Tomorrow I'm off to Gallifrey, the convention not the planet. I have no idea what to expect, and am excited and terrified all at once. I'm sure it'll be a blast, and I can't wait to meet everyone. If you're there, and you see me wandering around, dazed, or seemingly looking straight through you, I'm probably jetlagged or drunk. Or just not wearing my glasses (if you're more than 50 feet away, you don't exist). Or all three. Come and say hello, don't be scared, unless I'm waving a knife around or something. I will blog about it when I'm back, will probably be too tired during the event. But I may send random pics, if I can remember how to do that from my phone.

There will also be more background stuff about Torchwood, now that I can talk spoilery stuff. So gird your loins.

And although I completely failed to blog about it for ages, the WGA strike raged on long and hard (ooer), and seems to finally be over. I'd do a long post about how good I feel about it, but (a) I'm tired, (b) I don't know all the ins and outs so I'd just get something wrong (although Piers has a great summary here), and (c) I can't remember what (c) was going to be. I'm so, so tired. Been a long week. Which I will blog about later. Right now, I must sleep.

Hello Mr. Moran,
It's Sam...Not sure if you remember me...we met at Gally this last weekend. I hope you had a good time at Gally. Getting to meet you was fantastic, a highlight of my weekend. Hopefully my friends and I didn't freak you out-we're a bit shy and had no idea how to approach you. Looking forward to possibly hearing from you and I can't wait to see your DW episode!
~Sam (people call me Cen)

Sorry to say I WAS a bit too scared to say hello when I saw you in the hall on Sunday, but I enjoyed the commentary very much. :)

Hey it's Jessica (you better remember me). I had a great time hanging with you this weekend and I hope us Torchwood kids didn't scare you too much. Hopefully next time you come to LA you'll see more than just a hotel. Get some sleep, feel better

So I have 2 pics from Sunday night, one of me and you in the bar...and one of you and Sam...being quite "friendly" outside the bathroom while we were talking and waiting to ask the Moff if he was "relieved"...

great meeting you, and so excited for your episode!

Cheers all! Will post soon, just recovering from a massive dose of the Space Virus, resting at the moment. I had an amazing time, loved every minute of it, so a mammoth blog entry will arrive soon. It was lovely to meet all of you, you all rock.

Sam/Cen: I do remember, and of course you didn't freak me out, you were all really nice. Glad you had a good time, I thoroughly enjoyed myself, it's a fantastic place, full of lovely people.

Deconstructs: Don't be scared! I'm just some bloke, honestly, say hello next time and I promise not to kill you or anything.

Jessica: I did get slightly worried when I got "arrested", but thankfully the charges didn't stick, and I was released...

Priest: But did you TRY the bananas? Try the bananas. The bananas are really good. Honestly, try the bananas, if you like bananas, then you'll love these bananas. Bananas.

Abby: Hey, he came on to me, if he says otherwise then he's a damn liar... Yes, please, I can't wait to see those pics, send them over, email is in the profile - and any others I'm in, fire away! Managed to have a bit more food, but then got hit by the first stages of Space Virus, so had to crash and burn. Great to meet you too, sorry for inflicting tales of my bladder on you...

James,

Thanks for coming to Gallifrey, I hope you had a good time, despite getting the "Con Crud".

As an archaeologist and a Who fan, I can't WAIT to see your Doctor Who Pompeii episode!!!

You came to the US where you were shot at, arrested, and became ill. Oh, and drank some strange fizzy goo. Sounds about right. Hope you're on the mend. I had the Space Virus, too. bleh. It was an extreme pleasure to meet you at Gallifrey.
