Asta 2

For The Sake of My Sanity

So, a friend here in town forwards a link to myself and some others this morning regarding Gen Con in Indianapolis, wondering how she did not know about this (she's pretty up on cons, especially if there are Farscape folks involved as is the case here), and that she would have been interested in going this past weekend. I click on the link to see who was supposedly there and the first person I see is...Jamie Bamber?!?!

Now, contrary to popular opinion I do not know his every move, but I find it very odd that I watch all the major BSG comms on LJ, have several equally enthusiastic fans on my Flist, skim the Sci-Fi board several times a week, and check out his semi-official site at least once a week. And I saw nothing about this. Plus, scanning this morning for Con reports I still see nothing. My question is, does anyone know if he was really there? With no news I'm thinking either he was scheduled long ago and cancelled or he was a last minute addition. If it's the latter, Dragon*Con Jamie, Dragon*Con.

One Down, 199 to Go!

Before I get to the real point of this post I must mention my mother called me at work today to ask about spoilers. Yes, spoilers.

Mom: You read spoilers don't you?
Me: Er, yeah, sometimes.
Mom: What shows do they do them for?
Me: Mostly the popular ones.
Mom: Would you know who wins on 'Hells Kitchen' tonight?
Me: Um, they really don't have spoilers for reality shows. They have to sign non-disclosure contracts with big penalties.
Mom: Oh.

Ok, I'm trying to decide which was more worrisome, my mother knows what spoilers are or that she wanted them for 'Hells Kitchen'. Of course the really funny part is that she then goes on about how that's all the networks carry now is reality programming. When I point out that she watches reality programming, a point she denied until I listed about eight, her response was "Those are different. They have people using their brains." Ok, fine, whatever.

So danceswithwords was evil kind enough to give the heads up that Sci-Fi was repeating the first season of SG-1 starting tonight. And, yes, I watched. I can't compete with your recaps, but I have a few observtions. Sorry I had to go with a similar style of writing. This show just does not warrant complete paragraphs for me. Oh, and I hate you. :p Collapse )
