  1. And I'm sure you'll an admirable job! I really would have loved to meet you - fingers crossed there'll be other opportunities, though! I don't imagine he made the decision lightly - it's a big step. Has he taken early retirement, or will he do something else? K fired his London agent on Monday, and I couldn't be happier about it. Y'know that sound the tractor beam makes when Obi Wan powers it down? That's basically K's stress levels decreasing! It's a tough one, to be sure, and frankly, too good an opportunity for the guys to miss out on. I think you've done right; after all, we wouldn't want them feeling too deprived... it's bad enough they won't get to meet me, wouldn't want them crying into their pillows for the duration of the con.

    You wouldn't have us any other way, Geoff!
  3. Sadly, I've never managed to meet him; twice he was due to attends cons I was at, and both times, he had to cancel. Such a shame. By all accounts, he's a really fun person, and totally gets into the spirit of things. Now that it's on Prime, K and I are currently watching an episode of Buffy each night! In other news, it seems the fates have decided that I shan't be able to go to WCC after all, due to the weekend passes being sold out. Part of me is a bit relieved to not to have to make that decision because logically, I have to be careful with money at the mo' because we need to move closer to the fam. K's mum has recently had a couple of falls, and while she's fine now, she is in her mid-80s, and should she need looking after, it would be grossly unfair to expect K's sister and her family to have to do it. So right now, it would be wholly irresponsible of me to go and spend several hundred pounds on attending RAWmeet ... ummm....comic con, when that money should be put toward the cost of moving house. I am, nevertheless, truly sorry at not being able to meet up with fellow RAWsters - it would have been so much fun. But I know you're all going to have a blast, and I shall be terribly envious!
  4. Ooh, might I add The Unbearable Lightness of Being? In truth, the fact that the only people I knew who'd watched and enjoyed it were utterly pretentious knobbers should've triggered flashing warning lights and klaxons; however, undaunted, I went for it. I lasted roughly 17.3 minutes before I wanted to get all Oedipus on my eyeballs.
  5. See, there you go again... with your hussy mind!
  6. We did get a few funny looks from people in there! Honestly, have they really never seen anyone roleplay before?
  7. When you and your partner (finally, after almost two years) go to register at your local surgery, only to find they've swiped an autodoc from the Roci!
  8. Oh dear gods, yes! I'd almost managed to expunge that from my memory! I used to really enjoy Temple of Doom... until I re-watched (part of) it after having lived in India. I realised just how horrible the racial stereotyping was.

    To be perfectly honest, my ghast has never been so flabbered, Gail.

    There are worse people to be held captive by!
  11. I don't think you are (either melty brain or picky!); I agree, it smacks of lazy storytelling and a massive cop-out. On a somewhat related note, back in 2004, I had a week's work in LA, so visited Universal Studios, which was masses of fun. One of the attractions was Skynet, and I have to say that the massive robots looming over the audience were flimmin' terrifying! It was all done so well. (You really don't want to know how much I screamed while in the Van Helsing castle, when people jumped out at me - proof that I am a complete wimp.) On a completely unrelated note, while there, I had a meal at a cool American Italian restaurant, and my server was a really fun guy called James... who, it turned out, played Clem the demon in Buffy! He was waiting tables while appearing in top-rated TV shows - give you some insight into how little some actors are paid. The place is full of struggling actors; I'm sure if dedication were a guarantee of stardom, they'd all be household names!

  13. I haven't seen it but it does sound as though it suffers from the same thing that so much SciFi suffers from, that no matter how alien the tech (or in this case, language) is, our heroes can always fly the spaceship! I enjoyed Tron when it was first released but I re-watched it a few years back, and yep, it really hadn't aged well. At all. I didn't bother with the new one. I never liked 2001 - I found it really boring - but I agree about it holding up well.
