  I've got so much that has gone on in the last week. 

 Time Gate!  I had such a wonderful time this year, and all because of getting to spend time getting know friends  from Dragon*Con. It was really the first time I've gotten to chat with  everyone for longer then  waiting for a panel or parade to  start. You guys are even more awesome for long period of time.  I hardly went to any panels, although the ones I did sneak into where excellent. My own panel with Louis went well, although I think it would have been better without me on it, but it was enjoyable just the same. I had fun getting to know him better through the  year, and it was nice that he wants to stay in touch ( I  tend to fear that most people want to be rid of me as soon as possible.)    Doing the costumes this year was a blast, I really enjoyed being Utah Amy and getting to join in the fun  cult of Ginger :) I know I would have had much more to say about  if I'd gotten on the computer straight away  after the con but now it's just one big happy memory. I do think next year though I'll  stay at the hotel rather then drive back and forth it really cut into the fun time.    

 Right after the convention my Step-father left on a business trip so my mother and I got together for "Girls nights" which is really just us watching films and eating food my step-father doesn't like.  We watched  the  newest Doctor Who as well as several of the Russian Sherlock Holmes Tv shows. (if you are any kind of Holmes fan find it an watch it now! It is truly a wonderfully done series)  We also watched  "A Matter of Life and Death" (called Stairway to Heaven in America). It's an old film (1945)  and one of my favorites, my mom hadn't seen it before, but   liked all of the actors in the cast.  We had a great time, it was a nice way to  avoid convention blues.

We  (my mother and I) also went to see X-men First Class. OMG Fan girl squeee! I loved it. I've been an Xavier fan since watching the animated series  on tv when I was little.  It was so wonderful to see the character finally explored  in someplace other then fanfiction. It's also nice because before people would look at me rather strangely when I admitted to liking Xavier most of all, now  I think  there will be a little more acceptence in liking the character  with Mcavoy playing the part.   I went to see it again this morning and loved the film even more the second time. It has even started to cross my mind to do an x-men costume. :)

Tomorrow morning I go in to have my wisdom teeth pulled out, meh.  I'm  glad they are coming out, but I wish I could skip the whole dentist bit of it. So you may not hear from me much the rest of the week, or you may be hearing from me a lot. :)  I plan on finally watching the last episode of Doctor Who sometime during the week.
 I'm missing all of my timegate friends terribly, I can't wait to see all of you at Dragon*Con!

That is quite possibly the best icon in the universe.

I had so much fun hanging out with you at TimeGate! It felt kind of like a D*Con warm-up. I love your Sharaz Jek costume, but it was really nice to be able to see your face all weekend. :) I'm still squeeing over your John, so well done.

Commuting is tough, isn't it? Hardly made it to any panels at all myself, the lure of the lobby and the comfy couches was too strong this year. Really wanted to come to the one about the enigma machine, fascinating subject, but couldn't quite get there early enough on Sunday. Still bummed I missed the Sherlock panel, somehow I thought it was only going to be about the RDJ films and I'm not really a fan of his potrayal, and then my stomach started with the almighty grumbling and I didn't want to disturb the room. :P
Thanks so much for coming to the panel I was on Sunday, it helped so much seeing a friend in the audience, don't think I knew anyone else there, and thank you for contributing to it.
And I'll stop before my comment goes longer than your post.

No, wait, something else I have to say. Everyone will want to tell you horror stories about having wisdom teeth out, I'll just tell you that mine weren't bad at all. And three of them were growing in entirely wrong directions. I put vitamin e oil directly on the wounds, dentist said it healed better than anyone he'd ever seen. Hope yours goes well!

TimeGate was so much fun! And I really enjoyed getting to know you better - like you say, before this it's only been for a few minutes between panels. :)

Ohhh, your wisdom teeth, poor baby. I hope it all goes well and as painlessly as possible!

I tried to go see x-men over the weekend and it was sold out (for the time I could attend) trying again this weekend.

I'm not sure what to wish to some getting their wisdom teeth yanked, but may everything go smoothly and the drugs be good :)
