Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Ohhhh, Eomer's autograph. I'm jealous. I'm also hoping to have the money to get an autograph or two next Wizard World con.

And if you want to friend me on FB I'll accept.

Tooks--you mean my regular email email? The one I have listed here for TORCers to contact me?

I will look.

Hmm, well, I still can't find your email, LadyK, so I won't be able to find you on FB. However, once Tooks is friends with you, you should be able to find me in her "mutual friends" list. My first name is Helen and my profile photo has me with Border Collie puppies. :D That's if you want to be my FB friend - I shan't be offended if you don't want to! :)

Mmm, Karl Urban/Eomer. Have fun, nl! :D

Woohoo, I've apparently been so brilliant this season they're sending me to Aiya Napa for 3 nights, all expenses paid. My boss dropped the big news on me yesterday afternoon, and departure is tonight. Cyprus, here I come!

The ideology of Hitlerism, just like any other ideological system, can be accepted or rejected, this is a matter of political views.

Many thanks to The Great Bird of the Galaxy for this show.
While I didn't watch from start, I did catch the reruns
And was hooked.

If not for Star Trek,
I would not have met my babyman.
What can say but it was Gene Roddenberry
Who was my matchmaker.

Happy 50th Anniversary, Star Trek!

I'm really late to the party! :Q Hope there's some food left!

The original series back in the 60's was cancelled a couple of times but massive write in campaigns by the fans brought it back. NBC finally did succeed in killing it after about 3 years.

Silly NBC. Look how the concept has grown and endured. :D

If you are lacking players, I could take on Pippin...maybe. Depends of work stuff.

About a previous MOME winner, I met Eomer today!I got him to sign a nice Eomer photo from the choice on his table. It was a toss up of Eomer or Bones, but as I already have a Haldir one, I figured I should keep to the LOTR theme. I must say I got a little thrill going up to his desk, how fangurl of me. He has a really nice voice. Alas, I couldn't get what I would have liked written on the photo as the line for his autograph was the longest at the Con. I was going to ask for "To Donna, you're not listening to me...Karl Urban" but I chickened out, said hi, asked him how he was etc then left. I do have a phot of it. Will post it when I can get it onto photobucket.

I also got Aaron Ashmore 's autograph. He has a little more time to chat as he's not as well known, I guess. For those who don't know him, he's currently starring in Killjoys, has been in Warehouse 13, Fringe, Smallville, Veronica Mars and Lost Girl. Twin to Shawn Ashmore (the current Iceman). Also at the Con was Katee Sackoff from BSG, Christian Kane from Angel, Leverage and currently in the Librarians. I went to a few panels with those guys and also slipped in late to the Stargate Atlantis one with Joe Flanigan and Rainbow...something. Not sure of his last name, was Ford in the show.

I also got to meet one of my favourite Australian authors, Isobelle Carmody. She was lovely and nice to chat to about her books and when the new Legendsong book would be out.

Overall was a fun day, not too crowded and a decent amount of normal dressed to total geek ratio.

I think I shall spectate this contest. It sounds like a fairly different experience.

And we have been enjoying the Star Trek 50th here in NJ. Mrs. H. is very tired of watching Captain Kirk I'll say that much.

Had fun yesterday.
It was Sable's birthday and we celebrated with Chimichungas.
She loves them (as do I)
So I made them for her and our other bff and my guys.
After we had an evening of gaming.
Ahhh, good times.

nl... OooOOoo Karl Urban.
Sweet! :D
I would have chosen an Eomer picture, as well.
Sounds like you had a grand time.

Hope your mom is doing well, Tooks.

But then who would be Chief Nut in the peanut gallery? :P

Besides Salem is always Iris' assistant. He just kinda hangs out with me in between times.

If he's helping her, he can't help me---not if we're sponsoring different people.
