    Cant see it myself.

     

    Me neither, even from your wee avatar, Geoff! Funny how we all see things differently, isn't it?

    (A subject K and I were discussing last night, while talking about the fact that female marmosets, like most humies, have trichromatic vision, whereas males only have dichromatic.)

    Nicole, just grab the work in plain air while it's flying towards you and send it back with all your force (including a post-it with your invoice).

    Ooh, a plan so cunning, you could pin a tail on it, and call it a weasel! 😋

    Yes I totally get it. Never meet your heroes they say...

    So true. I was once going to do some PR for a reasonably famous Australian actress - someone whose most famous character I really, really liked. Turned out that said actress was not only full of crap (and had lied on her IMDB page!) but was utterly batshit crazy too! And completely fake! I walked away from the project, feeling I'd had a very lucky escape! Fortunately, I've worked (and partied!) with some lovely celebs. In fact, the only other one I can think of who was an arse was a guy who was in a hugely popular UK sitcom. He was very much like his TV character in real life, actually!

    Don’t say that 😧 - that’s exactly what I intend to do! 

    TBH, I don't really have any heroes... none that are living, anyway - and I certainly wouldn't want to meet any of those! But most of the guests at cons tend to really enjoy themselves while there. In fact, I've seen Kai and Gareth (who are going to be at WCC) have a bit too much fun at Torchwood cons! 🍸🍹 🍻  😂

    Never watched this but just looked up the actor and you’re right, there does appear to be a resemblance there.  And the film master thing is just spooky!

     

    Man in the High Castle is brilliant (not least because the lust of my life stars in it!). It's just so well done.

    Nicole, you might want to book a single day ticket, 'cause Wes will be there 😉

    Yeah but not Amos! Wes seems like a really fun guy, though. (And I don't have a thing for either of them, I just really like Amos as a character!)


  6. Firstly, hello @Tanya - and welcome to the madhouse!

    Secondly, apols for my absence; everyone is throwing work at me right now. I really could do with making a clone of myself... or a TARDIS... either way, right now, I really do not have enough hours in a day to get everything done. Or rather, work comes first, leaving very little time for anything else!

    Anyway, I'm hoping to be able to catch up with you all soon. 😘

    Aw that sucks Nicole, but I totally get why.  Would have been great to meet up - at this rate I’ll be the only one waving the RAW banner on Sunday!  

    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!

     To be fair, it’s a wee bit irresponsible of me too since Beloved has just decided to jack in his job (26 years service and the management don’t even seem to be that bothered he’s going, but at least I have a happy man at home again).

    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!

    ...but then this could be the only chance that Thomas (and Geoff!) get to meet me so what’s a girl to do? 🤷‍♀️

    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. :rolleyes: :lol:

    Used to love Buffy The Vampire Slayer so looking forward to meeting James. 

    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!


  9. 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.

    Can I also submit Indiana Jones and The Crystal Skull cobblers to this thread?  Only one question needs asking..... 

    WHY??????

    I mean, the franchise was doing just fine and then they throw us this half-arsed nonsense.  Love Harrison Ford and have massive respect for John Hurt but dear God, this reeked!!!!!!

    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. 😯 😢

    I’m trying very hard to restrain myself at the moment - practising for Wales Comic Con so Geoff doesn’t escort me off the premises! 😂

    'Tis a noble cause, to be sure!

    I resisted the temptation to comment on that  - hope you’re proud of me (if not a little bit surprised!) 😂

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