    Gate 14 in the Denver Airport: An award should go to the United Airlines gate agent in Denver for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo. For all of you out there who have had to deal with an irate customer, this one is for you!

    A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. A single agent was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers. Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS."

    The agent replied, "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these folks first; and then I'm sure we'll be able to work something out."

    The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"

    Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. "May I have your attention, please?", she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him find his identity, please come to Gate 14".

    With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United agent, gritted his teeth, and said, "F*** You!".

    Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry sir, you'll have to get in line for that, too."


    And *huggles* for the apartment Laurie.

    Same thing for me.

He was the only one I was considering getting this year because last time I got Mary to sign 1/2 of a hilarious Adama/Roslin cartoon I made, and I think it would be awesome to get Eddie to sign the other half.

    I don't know what the Sanctuary gang is charging, but their photos ops are crazy expensive IMO, so I think I'll be passing on those. I was thinking about doing a Chris/Amanda shot, but at $99, that's $99 less for the moving fund. So- I'll have fun with my costumes and my friends and maybe swing by the walk of fame to say hi. Possibly an auto, but probably not. I'm actually looking forward to the costuming and writing tracks this year more than the TV tracks.
    Yeah. I had planned to maybe attend D*C, but then I got my school schedule and it I couldn't make it this year. I had checked the photo-ops prices and thought they were expensive, considering I paid $35 for Nichelle Nichols when I met her in June.

    What are your costumes MoB?

    EDIT: Forgot to say! The Lion King was simply amazing! And they sung The Circle of Life in French at the end of the show because they were in Montreal. It was magic and wonderful.

      One does have to wonder though - who was he?

      Sorry the apartment didn't work out - sounds pretty gross

      Better luck with the next one *crosses fingers*

      am I the only one on this thread who hasn't had the pleasure?! *pouts*
      Aw *hugs*. I'm sure you'll get to meet her one day

      The nearest I've come to contact with any of PTB is when I graduated my sister tweeted to the Sanctuary guys/gals and Damien retweeted and said well done to me I was pretty chuffed with that
      Awesome!

      Loved the story a few pages back, and loving all the art! This thread always manages to put a goofy smile on my face
      That's what we're here for

        I slept 3-4 hours. I don't know the exact count. Obviously, I don't feel well this morning, probably because of that, but I can't go back to sleep. I've tried, kept turning in my bed, got tired of it, so I got up. I've had better mornings.

                1. One I call "Steampunk, Warrior Princess" I made it for a project I am working on and it was the costume I wore to AT5's Sat night party. But it's a bit more complete now. The other is a Steampunked Lucia di Lammermoor. I was inspired to make this after seeing the Met's current production of Lucia this winter. They set it in the 1880s, and I could totally see the Steampunk version if they went just a little farther. So I decided to work it out myself. I've been immersed in this music lately, also, which makes this costume all kinds of fun. If you are unfamiliar with the opera- here you go. My costume is based on this scene:

                2. That's awesome. I love that they did that. So glad you enjoyed the show!

                          *sigh*

                          I just got notified that my start date at my new hospital has been pushed back another 2 weeks. So I am, ostensibly, starting the job on Sept 6. A full month beyond my initial hire date. It's getting kind of frustrating. I got credentialed in 2 weeks at my last job. But since this is a massive university institution (Columbia AND Cornell Medical Centers) the red tape is overwhelming. Needless to say, I'm applying for other per-diem and some locums jobs now. Good cut-through-the-red-tape-vibes would be much appreciated.

                              I guess it's nice to have extra vacation time, but not if you're not getting paid

                              Edit: Thanks Luci It's sooooo pretty! She looks a little like a young Cher, which is very Hippy

                                Autograph wise... is there any way of getting autographs by post? I'd love AT's (as all main cast of Sanctuary)... but wasn't sure whether or not you could only get them in person.

                                I've seen pics on the net that say they're signed by her but I'm always a little skeptical about those
                                I've sent you a pm.
