      Ok a few posts back we were discussing different types of show scenarios the SG-1 teams could be in together with their same personalities and Sally mentioned Homeworld Security.

      So in my boredom, I started playing with the idea and came up with an opening credit for the show. Instead of an Astrophysicists, she is a Forensics Specialist.

        See you're joining right in with the craziness today ... we're not always so off the wall ... must be a full moon tonight.

        Welcome Aboard!

        Don't forget that Teal'c would probably want to be the referee for any rings- of-jello fights!
        She's fibbing! We are always like this!! We're just normally a bit more subtle about it. LOL

          *Great* pic, tsaxlady! Sam/AT looks happy! Great smiles!

            Me too. This is one of my favorite daniel & Sam team work scenes. They do something similar, but not as good in the Season 8 episode
            Spoiler:
            where they get captured by the Trust
            It would be great if some of the funny scenes the writers *will write* (sending them vibes) will be with Daniel & Sam. They probably can crack each other up.

              What I think is cool is that Sam got to drive it! So many times on TV (and in the movies), the guy drives the cool car while the 'girl' is eye candy in the passenger seat. I know that the character of Sam Carter has piloted jet air craft, but I still wouldn't have been surprised to see them have Daniel driving the car ('cuz he's the guy!). So - I just think it's so *great* that Sam/AT was driving! Put a great big smile on my face!

              And thanks for the pic, tsaxlady!

                  I think the compilation book is such an awesome idea! Though I'm not artistic or anything, so I doubt I'll be adding to it! Lol, I think Amanda will either love it, or think we're a group of obsessive fans and be very scared....or a mix of both! Hey, at least it shows we care!
                  Maybe it will go on the bookshelf... to be perused in later years as members of her family browse their photo albums. Maybe she can show it to her daughter when she's older

                  Edited to add the following once I read Chopingal's post (am still catching up on posts!)

                  Charlie, you just reminded me of a thought I had the other day (and since I think so rarely, it's worth mentioning) ...

                  Whatever Astro/Keeper puts together from all of us will be a labor of love, for sure, knowing how invested Astro is in this thread. However, if this booklet or portfolio is done well it really becomes something special that AT, herself, (or even her publicist) has probably not had time or thought about doing: it becomes a review, a snapshot, of her portrayal of Sam Carter.

                  This could become a scrapbook to show Olivia one day - this is what your mom did for a certain part of her acting career! I think we should dedicate the compilation to Olivia from her mom's fans. How lovely that she will one day get to read what many people thought of her mom - Amanda's influence on others and her professional ability in bringing Sam to life. This is just a thought, but it has been on my mind. One day, years from now, mom may want to share some of her legacy with her daughter ... and she'll have our little contribution to help her tell the story of "Sam and the Stargate".

                  Something quite innocent, a first post by Major Sally just admiring the "character of Sam", started an amazing thread. Then Major Sam gave us the idea for "Samanda" and we jumped on it and all kinds of fun things began to happen. Fans started to bring in bits of themselves (humor, great discussions, sarcasm, wit, originality, artwork/photo manips, screencaps and captions) ... and many kind words and compliments helped to bring out some gifts that people didn't even know they had!


                  But I see something even more ... many of us have noted that many internet threads sometimes take a nasty turn and dissolve into a great deal of noise. I think, just by writing about Sam/Amanda, we have managed to incorporate some of her own generous spirit and good will on to this board. She is a very fun-loving and kind person (by all accounts and observations). And I think that there's a lot of that here with the back-and-forth comments and teasing and exchanges that go on. It's wonderful to see and experience. User-friendly cyberspace!

                  So, I think that we are heading in the right direction by reviewing some of the past posts and extracting some of the unique "moments" of hilarity, discussion, debate, admiration, etc. which highlight just why we think Sam is such a great character! And, Astro, I'm willing to commit some time to this, behind the scenes with you, (now that our spring semesters are coming to an end).
                  Eloquently worded, Chopingal! And right along the lines of what I was thinking!

                    And why do I keep thinking these strange thoughts?
                    ROTFL! Can't rep you at the moment.

                      Hmmm... very weird... sometimes, I really do think that there are gremlins in the computers

                      And officially many thanks to everyone who has helped in getting our little gift to Amanda at the Studios - you are all superb!! Hopefully it gave her a little lift to know that fans are waiting with baited breath for her brilliant portrayal of Sam Carter to return to the screen. Here's hoping the writers give her the storylines she deserves after the 110% of commitment she has given the show over the last 8 years, she certainly is an inspiration!
                      Well stated, Coley!

                        I must now leave for work of my own, tuning the lyre even as I jot down these few friendly words.

                        Sincerely,

                        Since we've added some new members lately (and because I seem to have early "senior moments" ) could we get a rundown of who the members of the royal court are?

                            I remember in one of the commentaries AT was talking about how the music can help a lot. Sometimes as they're doing scenes they aren't sure if they will come off well and she said they sometimes say "the music will save it." I'd say that often the case is: "Amanda will save it."

                              AT: You're telling me. I've already told them the only way I'd be caught dead wearing one is if it's on the outside of my clothing.

                              Sorry, couldn't help myself when I saw this photo. Hope I don't offend anyone.

                              Edit: Man, after going through my posts this morning I've decided that I must be in a wickedly naughty mood today. I'm sorry. *Slaps her own wrists*
