I didn't hear too many speakers or panels or anything but it was fun just to see everyone's costumes and stuff. I have a couple pics on fb of my costume... more when we do our Steampunk Midsummer Night's Dream in May.
Cool! I did see one of those pics and wondered what was going on, you all looked amazing. And that is half the fun, I think, seeing everyone dressed up and the wonderful costumes. Some English friends of mine made themselves fantastic steampunk costumes for Dragon Con, the last time I went, let me see if I can find a pic...

 




And this amused me on the menu of the hotel I stayed at:

I don't really watch any reality shows, but I got the impression the atmosphere was a lot nicer on Masterchef than on most of the other shows. If you ever get the Australian version of My Kitchen Rules, STAY AWAY. From the ads I've seen it's all about creating interpersonal conflict and what, there's cooking too? Pfft.

Hello Thora! How's things with you?

I wish I could go to the Doctor Who celebrations in November. It'd be a dream come true..... maybe BBCAmerica will have a contest for it.


And, for anyone who's interested

 
My mom's completed 7 radiation treatments. She still has 5 full weeks left of every day (except Saturday and Sunday), but it's getting done.
 
Don't worry, I'm kinda the same way.


They might also be organising something in the States (or several of them, who knows) to celebrate the anniversary as well... Given how popular Doctor Who has become outside of the UK in recent years, I would guess that someone will be celebrating the anniversary somehow in a lot of places. Fingers crossed!

 
I was going to ask how she was going... glad they're getting through the treatment, I really hope it gets zapped for good.

I really hope so, but I'm not holding my breath. I live in Utah, and with my luck, the closest celebration would take place in California.... which I would have no one to take me to. *does not drive*

 
She hates it, but she has the same view: hopefully it gets zapped for good.

That's at least two Doctor Who fans I know who live in Utah, there may be hope!

Really? I recently met another DW fan here, but she's my brother's sort-of gf AND she's like, 5 years younger than me.... she makes me feel really old.








I'm watching "Rock of Ages" on HBO right now, and can't stop giggling at Tom Cruise.... is that bad?

I hope no one minds if I post a short rant.

Today on the Facebook page called U2.com, which is NOT the real U2.com or has any relation to them, I saw one of my daughters pics. Hey that's neat I thought! We don't mind that at all. So I commented under the pic something like that... Wow cool, my daughters pic from Vegas. And they deleted my comment and blocked me! Then they started spouting some crap about people causing trouble on there and be warned of getting banned. Just WOW. Well it really pissed me off. But not much I can do about it. Just really stupid because I actually was fine with the pic there to begin with.

Ok I guess I'm done.

I don't know why I can't stop giggling at him, because he's actually not that bad in this, but yea. Even his singing isn't all bad.... but I cannot stop the giggling.



Thanks Comet . I'm glad things are working out good for you and yours.

I swear sometimes I just feel like I'm done with it. I wouldn't be surprised if one of these days I delete my account.

I actually am really enjoying Instagram though. I'm having fun taking pics on my phone and posting them there, so if I do leave FB, I'll just stay on Instagram with pics.

I'm trying to get down to Seattle, if I can get all the details figured out. Which reminds me, I HAVE to call my aunt about that tomorrow.

How about you?

Rant away. I saw that post and couldn't believe it. What assholes.

Thanks. Yeah it's just really weird how they totally took offense with no reason. I thought it would be cool to comment which show the photo was from, but I guess not! I think the same thing happened to another person too. I know there's a language barrier with this site, but it doesn't excuse them rudeness and plain meanness.

Darn young whippersnappers...

So that's three DW fans in Utah!

I haven't seen that one... but I know I can't take Tom Cruise seriously any more.

I saw that post of yours too - sounds like the people running that page are hyper-paranoid and arseholes to boot.

So I guess you're pretty busy? Weekends are definitely the best... and four-day Easter weekends are the best of all.

I'm not bad, not as busy as you, lol. Work's flat out as usual, not sure what sort of job I'll have at the end of the year, but that's a long way away and hopefully I'll have my holiday in November.

And today I put a load of woodchip mulch on the garden beds which will hopefully stop the frickin weeds coming up again.

Comet, that sucks. I don't think I'd leave FB. Since many of the peeps that used to be here don't come here, it's the only way I know what's going on. And i have family scattered around the country and that's how we stay in touch. Besides, when I go into labor, I'll be updating my FB.

Yeah I am pretty much not going without FB either. I keep contact with so many people who are far away. For someone who HATES phonecalls, it's perfect.

Definitely not. They're just going to alienate more people. I had a look last night, and all their latest posts come across as VERY defensive and rude. Oh, and I just looked again right now, and I guess they're not going to post anymore?! Whatever.

Yup. But I love the busyness. It keeps my days interesting, and time just flies. Hard to believe I've been working for almost 9 months now. I should find out sometime in the next 3 months if the woman I replaced on maternity leave is coming back or not. I've done a good job of not worrying about it, but now that time is starting to run out, I'll admit I'm getting a bit stressed. I don't want to go through the job search crap again. I really hope that she either won't come back, or that there will be a way for me to stay on at the company, as I really enjoy being there. We'll see.

Well, Seattle's out of the question for next weekend now. Oh well. I should have thought about it sooner, and started to make plans more in advance, as all my friends and family don't have room at their houses for me to stay, or are out of town/too busy. Hopefully I'll find something interesting to do around here, but if not, a few days off with nothing to do and nowhere to go sounds kinda nice.

Oooh, where would you be going in November? Is that Dragon-Con time? I forget when that is... I love living vicariously through others' travel plans.

I wonder if there's a fanclub here. I know they filmed part of the season 6 premiere down near Moab. At least, I think it was Moab... wherever that lake is in southern Utah.. of course, I didn't find out until after they finished filming and were back in the UK.


I can't remember the last time I actually took him seriously. I don't think I ever have.

I know, I'm sure I'll keep my account, I have all my tour pics there and all, and like Gg said it's good to stay in touch when you're not exactly a phone call type person. (I hate talking on the phone). And GR thats so cool. Can't wait to see your posts during labor.
