          Interested - hell yeah. In the last few rounds there were a shirt and that night-thingie from Doppelganger but you know, I thought I wouldn't probably have a shot seeing the prices going up like woah... but who knows maybe I'll get lucky.

              I was at the Armageddon Multimedia Expo in Melbourne over the weekend, where I attended Torri's Q&A panel, & met her afterwards. I have to say, what a delightful lady she is! Her panel was entertaining, fun & interesting.
              My question to her was: "Everyone grows up with influences throughout their childhood, like horror or comics or sci-fi, etc; what influenced you while you were growing up?"
              Her answer was: "Old black & white movies, especially ones with strong female characters like Katherine Hepburn, etc." (She did say more than that, but that was the gist of it.)
              I lined up for an autograph afterwards & was waiting for a good hour. The reason for this was that Torri was having a lovely chat with each person who stepped up to her table. When it was finally my turn, she immediately commented on how she loved my sparkly gold-glitter nail polish. Then she asked my name & then said how lovely she thought it was. I replied that I was the one who asked about her influences & she'd said black & white movies, & then told her about how my parents got my name from an old movie about a vintage car with the same name. I also said that I also grew up watching b&w movies & all the old musicals.
              I then told her my favourite b&w movie is The Women & asked if she'd heard of it. She was only aware of the (inferior) remake with Sissy Spacek & Meg Ryan, so I told her the original is MUCH better & has a lot of great actresses in it from that era. She actually wrote it down to remind herself to seek it out.
              I then told her that I love Stargate Atlantis, but not nearly as much after she & Paul were shafted. She graciously said that shows change sometimes, etc, but I insisted that the show wasn't as good after she & Paul had left. We said one or two more things & then I had to move on & we said our goodbyes.
              I was so impressed with how sweet she was, that I decided to get a professional photo with her the next day, & went in early to make sure I wouldn't miss out. When I went into the booth, she remembered me & said it was nice to see me again. So I told her that I'd had such a lovely time chatting with her at the autograph table the day before that I'd squeezed the budget to get a photo with her as well. She seemed genuinely touched & thanked me. She also commented on my Han Solo t-shirt.
              We had our photo & exchanged a couple more comments, & then I told her that her panel had been very entertaining & that I'd be raving on the internet about my wonderful experience meeting her. She thanked me again & we said our goodbyes, & here I am raving about how great she is!

              Here are my pics:

                Thanks for the con report, dolfyn! It's always great to hear stories of Torri!

                And I love the original The Women too. Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell all in one picture. I couldn't even stomach seeing the remake. =\

                        Checking in one last time before heading off to bed; this past week's auction for the lot of two Elizabeth Weir duty shirts closed with a winning bid of $147.50.

                            I didn't win Kate's shirt either - apparently I'm not in the right Timezone for this either, consider I am not awake at 4 or 5 am to notice I'm being outbid by 1 frakkin dollar. I wanted it so badly. It's just not fair. Whoever cheated me out of my fun better be a fan and not some random buyer.
