    Good Morning, Campers (on the east coast of USA) I see that we have some new emoticons to play with in 2006!

    Flew back from the very wet west coast yesterday early am and still readjusting my internal time clock. I chose to stay home last night and watch the local fireworks on the telly. LOL, NC, 'cause I also watched Moebius (and Threads and Reckoning) reruns on New Year's eve just to prime myself for the second half of S9. Amanda was so good and so amazing in these episodes ... it was great that she got to exercise her acting muscles with Replicarter and Geeky Sam. Of course, having Jack around was icing on the cake!

    mini, you don't have to worry about feeling alone at GABIT2 - believe me, everyone there will make you feel very welcomed and I picture you hanging out in the hotel lounge making new friends. The AT and GABIT spirit is contagious!

    tsxlady and SamFan31 in CA, hold on and let's hope the storms start to let up soon! Strix, let's hope some of that badly needed rain shows up on your doorstep!

    So here we go, on with the show ... S9 is about to flow!


    Can you send some of that rain my way when you are done? The fireworks were cancelled in my area last night for fear of more wildfires. Thankfully we were still able to see some on television last night. I hope today is the beginning of a wonderful new year filled with lots of happiness, rain for those who need it, and a spectacular ending to season nine.

    Mini- I wouldn't worry too much about being alone at Gabit. Everyone is extremely nice and helpful. When I first arrived at the hotel, I didn't know anyone. I had planned on meeting a few people from Samanda and the GW Gabit thread, but I wasn't sure where and when we were to meet so I just hung out in the lobby. After walking around for about an hour and checking things out, I introduced myself to a group of women(about a dozen) who were chatting in the hotel lobby and they all welcomed me to the group immediately. They were from differents parts of the world: Italy, Germany, Scotland, Canada, the U.S, even as far away as Australia. Many were new to the whole con thing just like me, but several seemed to be old pros and had met Amanda several times already. It was fun listening to their stories about other cons. Being a con newbie myself, I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but the nice thing about Gabit was the fact that everyone who attended wore an orange pass around their neck so we could identify each other quite easily and I knew immediately that the personal I was chatting with shared the same interest in Sam/Amanda as I did. I really didn't have to fear that the person I was chatting with would dislike Sam or Amanda, because I didn't think many people would willingly shell out the money to spend the weekend with Amanda if they really didn't like her.

    The people I met from Gateworld/Samanda were just as nice as I had expected, if not more so, and I was extremely lucky in that I was seated next to Kliggin at the Q&A so I didn't have to feel as if I was seated next to a complete stranger. However, I've always felt that noone is a stranger for long if you are willing to just say Hi. There was a nice young couple from Germany on the other side of me who I got the opportunity to chat with a bit during the Q&A intermissions. Occassionally you meet a few people who are a bit annoying (Kliggin can attest to this for me...LOL) but overall I can't really think of anything negative to say about the con. The G4 and the attendants were all very helpful and truly seemed to try to make the event enjoyable for everyone involved. Even when we had to stand in line for certain events like photos and autographs it wasn't bad. People chatted, sang songs, and occassionally the attendants passed out candy to everyone. It felt like a great big party to me. The time spent with Amanda just made the party that much more enjoyable.

    For those of you who have registered to go to Gabit 2, please check out the Gabit thread in the fandom section. They've already started a attendees list and a countdown for Gabit 2. It will also give you a chance to meet others who will be attending the con who do not frequent this thread ( though I'm sure many of them do lurk )

      Ok... back to the wine and cheese!

      HAPPY NEW YEAR!

      Sounds like it was fun, minigeek. I actually get the Sunday NY Times and of all Sundays, had to go over hill and dale to find one today! (Well, over a hill, no real dales in NYC ).

      The web version doesn't show the picture, however. It's a b/w of Amanda Tapping in a hazmat suit; hard to tell what season or episode as its a head shot. On the TV Guide cover is a starfield with a glowing red region of stars in the center. Arrows point out "Stargate SG-1," and north (using earth directions!) is "Stargate Atlantis," and south of SG-1 is "Battlestar Galactica." The title of the cover and feature article is Sci-Fi Nights. Nice to see that a perk with big corporate money is the full court publicity press for the series. Big bucks for the promos this season, and not bad promos at that. Wonder what the rest of the week leading to Friday will be like.

      Just sayin', and the fact that they featured Amanda Tapping, subject of this summer's little whirlwind of Stargate fan angst, was so cool. Who would have guessed she'd be played up so nicely after all that?

      And prayers for rain where it's needed; stay safe, all who live in the dry zones.

          Kat, I love your cap from The Void. Such stunning people. It makes me think it’s time to pull out The Void just to see them again.

          I have no idea what time it is wherever Sam and Grace are, but it looks like they thought of a way to celebrate the New Year.

          I've been doing that for the last week!!! Our Christmas crackers this year had bubbles in all of them, as well as the main gift, so I've been blowing bubbles all week. I really impressed my dad by explaining to my little sister how bubbles work!
          Yepp, it's blank down here.

            As for Back!Porn, Into The Fire left me tingling all over.

              Happy New Year !
              Peace and happiness for all of you in 2006 !

              Sorry if I've been a little out of the Samandan loop lately. I was working on a little project with January 1st as the deadline.

              Many of you have been happy with the advent calendar and asked me for a full year one. So, here's my little present for 2006, a SG1 calendar with UK and US versions for the beginning of the week. No new characters on this one, not that I don't want to play with them, but I needed high quality pictures and couldn't find any for season 9 episodes.

              Cover

              UK version:

              January

                    Awesome calendar, Lys. Thanks so much for this! I just may have to print it and hang it up next to the "official" version.

                      One doesn't have to be a bloke to appreciate that spectacular back

                      Meanwhile, I really must get my hands on this film by the sounds. I've been a little scared that it would irritate me because the character is too close to Carter. Anyone got a thought on that?

                            I think it will be okay. I was expecting the movie to be pretty awful, but, like Kat, I was very pleasantly surprised. AT's character was different enough from Sam that I didn't have any problems with it. But maybe that's just me.

                              No, I think that Amanda is such a strong actress that she can play up even the most subtle differences to prove that they are in fact different characters.

                              If you are worried about them all seeming like Sam, think back to the following:

                              AU Sam (There but for the Grace of God)
                              Dr Carter (Point of View)
                              Replicarter
                              Geek!Sam (Moebius)
                              Dream!Sam (Grace Under Pressure)

                              In all these instances, although playing essentially the same character, she has picked up on the different facets and nuances of their individual personality and turned them into a completely new character. Noone, for example, could confuse Geek!Sam with Dr Carter, or Dream!Sam with Replicarter.

                              So put your faith in Amanda as an actress, and go and watch it.
                              Yepp, it's blank down here.

                                yeah, void was fun. Eva ( i think that's her name) is different from sam. the only thing they have in common is being brilliant...oh and a wormhole
