Ha ha!  The 'Get Harper Laid' badges have been a real hit!  So many people have stopped me and asked for one.  I brought about 50 with me and about 2/3 are gone already.  GMW burst out laughing, took one and promised to wear it today.  He didn't, BTW :(  Steve laughed and refused to take one, and Kevin asked for one and immediately pinned it to his shirt  :lol:

I'm having a blast, and so far the weekend has been almost entirely hangover and vomit-free.  Score!

I'll leave everyone else to leave proper con reports, because I'm crap at remembering anything.  The only thing I really remember about the Q&A was clairseach giving GMW a little Harper model she'd made.  He kept talking to it during the Q&A.

Oh, and Steve made funny voices while I was getting my group pic taken, and I cracked up.  My pic is evil.  I must scan it in and share it with the world.

And now... back to the bar  :blush:

Claire (Rommiesvoice) came in a Rommie costume.  Unfortunately none of the guys came back this evening to party.  I hope that she will put it on again on Sunday so that everyone can see it.   Sad to say that there was no forcelance available at the auction, but the sight of Kevin bending over in those pants will be etched on my mind for a while to come.LOL :p   Steve has made my day by noticing that I lost weight since we last met.  :upside:  :love:

as a side note, i was dissapointed about not being included in the harperchondriacs booklet. I know i don't post much, but I was a founding member and all. ah well

on to the con. A few thoughts from the talks, steve Bacic (Ba- shiek-shh) is far funnier than i expected him to be, especially given the characters i've seen him play (as Gordon would later remark, Gordon's line is about at his shoulder height, kevin's is somewhere above Gordon's head (because he's so tall) and Steve's is somewhere down by Gordon's knees :p)

The lack of a dealers room really bummed me out.

Gordon was his usuall amusing self and once the topic got of the bubblegum bot and his chocolate sauce fantasies it was good fun. Being a writer has apparently been a tad heartbreaking for him, as he is no aware of how unfun it is for th ewriter to have his scripts changed by know it all actors :p

Kevin, well, i can understand the magnetism of him as a person, but he needs to get his story straight, saying that terrorists shouldn't be allowed to change our lives (in reference to an appearence by him at the Olympic games) and then immediately following it by an example of how he let it change his life was a bit, erm, contradictory, but hey.

There is going to be a massive 100th episode bash, but since the writers this season are almost perenially behind, he has no idea what's going ot be happening in it yet. 7 Episodes are complete, and he feels that trance is sadly underused in the opening 3rd of Season 5.

As a side note, all the exislers here are extremely cute, and smart. I'm tyring to figure out why we don't do these gatherings more often Maybe next time we pick a hotel with a hottub :devil:

ah well, onto day 2. toodles

Awww :hugs: CH  Sorry you got left out of the booklet :(  Looking at "the gang" page though it looks like Jipster and Shea went with members of the Harperchondriacs they have known since joining ExIsle.  They were never at SSBS

Why wait?  HOTTUB PARTY!  *throws a few clones in the tub along with a rubber ducky and a snorkel* :devil:  

Gotta keep myself entertained while y'all are having so much fun :p~

One thing Cyberhippie forgot to mention was that he asked Steve Bacic
"Who would you most like to lick chocolate sauce from"  :p~
After a lot of laughter, Steve said Halle Berry! :love:

Anyway we've just finished the second GMW talk, so you'll hear about that later. In the meantime here is Gordon's magog joke:

Quote

A magog goes into a Castellian bank and asks for a loan of 40 thrones. The Castellian, Paddy Black, asks if he has any collateral. The magog has a search and comes up with a shrunken human head. So Paddy goes to the bank manager (a nightsider) and says,
"I have a magog who wants a loan of 40 thrones and all he has for collateral is this thing. What the hell is it"? So the nightsider says,
"It's a knick-nack, Paddy Black, give the magog a loan"!  :D  :D  :D

Coming later, some scripts, some cans of Sparky Cola and a pink Barbie.
An enigma, wrapped up in a riddle, with a tail in the middle.

Cyberhippie and clairseach got signed AtDD scripts!  Free!  They answered trivia questions about Andromeda.  I was too slow and hungover to take part, but I got a vicarious thrill :)

Can't really remember much else.  The hangover and vomit-free part of the convention have unfortunately come to an end for me.  Still... it wouldn't be a con if I didn't get drunk and make a tit of myself at least once.

Had a blast at the GMW second solo talk. GMW came in and tore off his shirt to reveal underneath the shirt that Jips made with the GMW/BMW logo. He must really like it. After the opening Magog joke :D GMW went on to answering questions. Jips got in her question from Jaimz. He seemed a bit stunned as the audience laughed. Then when Jips let on who her source was GMW told to quit listening to his brother. :D After the Q&A there GMW gave out signed scripts of Abridging the Devils Divide to those who were first to correctly answer a trivia question of his choosing. CH and Clairsearch each won a script. Then there was a fierce bidding war for three cans of Sparky Cola. Jips' friend Denise and I each won the bid for two of the Sparky cans. They are real Sparky Cola prop cans. :D  After Gordon's talk I headed to to see some more of London. More about that later.
