My report

Get to the hotel – it’s huge…I panic..I find Betsy..I relax…we check in to our room..we discover the prices in the hotel bar…we laugh…we see Lil, Pippi and Nep – we hug..we go out to lunch…Pippi and Lil have me laughing all through lunch..Lil takes photos of me laughing all through lunch, Lil takes a photo of a sausage! We walk back to the hotel in the sunshine, manage to negotiate the roads without any casualties…go to the hotel bar and drink water..find Jac, HF, LM, Shaun (Mr Babylon 5!) and lots of others….look at Lils set photos, talk about Sean Bean (or was that later), get changed…go back to the pub…laugh some more..raise our glasses to friendship, talk about Boromir and Faramir ..head back to the hotel bar (can you spot the reoccurring theme?) spot Keith across the hall ……..find the room Keith will be appearing in…are horrified to discover that Keith won’t allow us to take pictures during the event, Pippi finds Keith and asks him straight…he smiles and says he doesn’t mind …we have our pictures taken with Keith..he smiles and chats away quite happily (it was a small event, plenty of Keith time for everyone that wanted it ..and we wanted it!) then cameras at the ready we sit down and wait. The man arrives…we ask lots of thought provoking and intelligent questions..and as Cauda mentioned someone asked the Boxers or Briefs question! I’ll get round to the questions and answers at a later point. Keith was on stage for ages….he carried on long after he was supposed to finish – what a guy. Then it was autograph time…he would autograph as many things as you wanted and again was more than happy to chat. I asked him if he would do the obligatory MB photo when he’d finished – he, being the great man that he is, agreed. I smiled and wandered off in a daze. At yet another hotel bar Lil drags someone out to meet us all …. Yes Cauda that would be you – and to my knowledge it’s the one and only time I’ve ever hugged a Trancer. When Keith was done with the signings it was late..he was hungry, his food was ready…but he honoured his promise and came and posed for the photo – have I mentioned what a wonderful man he is!

Oh and the hair – didn’t miss it at all…he looks as *thud….drool…swoon* as ever…and anyway Lil and Pippi bought him a hat to keep him warm – but that’s their story so I’ll let them tell you.

Finally fell into bed after yet another trip to the bar and a midnight feast with Betsy…Raspberries, rice cakes and Lucozade have never tasted better!

This morning…wake up…yawn..shower..breakfast….chat in corridor ………. Keith appears *faint* Keith speaks - we are struck dumb!

And all you single ladies – Keith likes renovating, cooking and clothes shopping – what more could you want? oh and he dances, albeit badly ;)

{{{{{{{{Lil}}}}}}}} it was absolutely brilliant to see you again
{{{{{{{{Pippi}}}}}}}} likewise
{{{{{{Nep}}}}} a pleasure to meet you
{{{{{Shaun}}}} we didn’t get much of chance to chat but it was good to see you
{{{{{{Cauda}}}}}} sorry for ever assuming you were a woman
{{{{{HF & LM}}}}}}}}} ~grins~

Monique & Rov – Lil has a hug from me to you for San Diego
Jid – I had a sip or two for you

So all in all a hugely fun and huggy weekend :) :)

It's contagious you know. Hug a trancer and you start to turn into one. You can expect the tail to start growing any day now!  :devil:

There's loads of pictures.....Pippi took zillions...Lil took loads, I have some, but it was a little dark for my poor camera - I have three of Keith and his new hair-do! I just need somewhere to host them..oh and I have a great one of Lil in the hat she bought for Keith ;)

I told Lil and Pippi all about the 'pants' - we laughed...a LOT!

I've already sent you one picture - go to Keiths, find my thread, go to Karins site - see the others ;) I'll sort out the rest later. Any questions you have - I'll answer :D :D :D

'Mr. Babylon 5', heh, I like it...certainly better than 'the lady with the beard' as someone called me in the pub ;)

I must have got lost in the hotel at least 6 or 7 times. Layout - very very confusing, prices very very silly.

I didn't take many pictures,  unless I'm about an inch from the subject I'm photographing the result isn't worth keeping.

Keith was really generous with the fans, allowing photos to be taken, answering questions well beyond the then when he was asked to answer only one more question carried on and answered two or three more.

There were hugs-a-plenty and some fascinating conversation (when I could hear it above the music in the bar).

ROFL - I'd forgotten about the lady with the beard - for everyone's information - Shaun does not look remotely like a woman with a beard...he looks like a man with a beard ;)

As for the hotel - confusing.....very and all those mirrors - ewwww too freaky for me :D :D :D
