'Allo allo [Aug. 28th, 2014|12:46 pm]

-> It's been a while since an update but it doesn't seem like it because I use my DW to write when I'm at work so I'm actually on it everyday pretty much - heh.

-> I'm heading to OzComicCon in a couple of weeks, mostly to support a friend who is re-launching some of his books but also to meet some artists and hopefully catch a sneaky glimpse of Jason Momoa. I bet he's impressive looking in real life. I could buy an autograph/photo op ticket but I'm weird about meeting celebs in real life. They can stay firmly on my screen and away from me. Being in Australia I don't have to worry much about randomly running into many. I met James Marsters the once and apparently both Hugh Jackman and David Wenham have been at the same beach as me at the same time but I tend to run the other way. ALTHOUGH - I am tempted to try and meet Mark Sheppard because c'mon, how often do you get the opportunity to meet Crowley?

-> Got all keen to get to podficcing again and even finished and posted my Darcy/Clint podfic and then developed a wracking cough/flu combo that has destroyed my voice and stamina and has hung on for 3 weeks. I've got a bunch of stuff I want to do, all the permissions I need (either asked or blanket - love blanket permissions!) and CAN'T RECORD ANYTHING FFS.

-> Got a couple of things I'm really looking forward to in the next little while - Comicon and seeing Bill Bailey and heading to Quay restaurant (for those that have watched the Aussie Masterchef - Quay is the home of the famous Snow Egg dessert which is still on the menu and we're planning to eat its face off - NOM!)

Hi hi. :)

I'm with you re: celebrities. I just...can't imagine anything more awkward or pointless than meeting one. What i'd *want* to happen - an interesting and relaxed conversation on topics of mutual interest - won't ever, so ten seconds of 'you're very talented/i like your work/you're awesome' is not only pointless but kinda...offputting.

Ack, flu-thing! That sucks. Be well, bb!

Oh you don't talk like that to Mark Sheppard - he'd just take the piss out of you.

Hi you! *squish*

They do have a dinner that you could go along to but again, it would probably be a bunch of people vying for their attention and not relaxed at all so no, no I can't. I have terrible social anxiety with people I don't know and even though they are celebs, they are still strangers... hee!

People also think I hate them when I first meet them because of that (because I don't seem at all shy when with people I know/am comfortable with) so they would also probably leave the experience thinking, why did she want to meet someone she hated so much... hee!

I don't mind meeting strangers but...you couldn't just *meet*, and relax. Even if i wasn't doing any sort of fangrrl thing, everyone around me would be, and that would irritate me (i know, i know) and i would just....
*flail*

Not be happy.

I was told by one of my dearest friends that she thought i hated her when we first met, because of my rather reserved nature. I was flabbergasted, because it thought she was *so amazingly awesome*. So, there's that, too. I guess we have more than just fandom in common!!

*twirls you*

You should definitely try to meet Mark Sheppard, he's awesome and doesn't give you (or me, anyway) that "omg he's a celeb RUN AWAY" thing. He's great to talk to! And he gives really good con - he's one of my favourite ever con guests, he can talk FOREVER and has stories about everyone and everything and he GETS fandom.

Also I got your message earlier and will email you later! Thanks for poking me:)

I'm going to see what panels are happening on the day and if there's anything interesting he's on I will try and get in.

I met Jason at Collector Mania in London - he was all on his own waiting for people to get his autograph so I had a chance to chat with him for a bit and he was lovely (as well as totally gorgeous to look at of course!). I expect he'll be a little more popular now though, this was before GOT came out, he was filming the first season at the time.

Bill Bailey!!! He is totally awesome. Your face will crack.

I LOVE him, but missed him the last time he was out here so am really looking forward to it.

I just want to thank you for posting the polyam link on tumblr!

I routinely use the wayback machine to find fic, and I have been astonished at the terrible results of sorting by kudos to find HP fic on ao3.

Using the google site search sort of helps though, since walktheplank.org is still up.

Thanks again <3
