    Why did you choose GABIT? Sam is my favourite character in the show, and I think Amanda is an incredible actress. She also comes across as being a wonderful person in RL.
    Are you coming from a distance or near the con site? I'm flying down from Edinburgh.
    Are you coming with a group of like-minded fans? No, but I already know Baggie, and I feel as if I know many of you from the "SaGC" thread.

    I was on the phone to my Mum earlier, and she was telling me she had been visiting her friend today. Mum told her I was going to GABIT, and her friend said she was so jealous, as she loves Stargate. I've known this woman all my life, and yet I never knew that she watched SG! I can just imagine these two women in their late 70's, sitting discussing SG. Mum is used to me going on and on about it, but I'm sure she never expected her friend to do the same!
    Of course, you are one of our Royal Lurkers, Bev! Bringing the banjo?!

    LOL about your mum and her ladyfriend ... bring them along too!

    Thankees ! I doublechecked the "days to go"...the hours/minutes can wait a while.(Less chance of me screwing the countdown up that way... )

    ETA :
    Er it IS a bit big,actually ! Oh,well.I suppose something a little more subtle in blue (jello) shades might be better next time.....

    It is not too big at all ... ahem, those of us of a certain age (aka as the Royal Hens of Samanda) appreciate the larger script!!

    Yes, Bev bring the banjo and we'll hunt up a piano somewhere and I'll join you!

    And "MAL", you are not related to the new character, Vala MAL Doran, are you?!

    Nah....it's an acronym of the letters of MAL's real name.
    The name "MAL" lends a certain air of mystery and stuff to Our Lady Of Stafford !

    The respectful title of "Lady Of Stafford" is my way of paying tribute to your long-established status on GW since the early days of Starguide ,so it is actually a genuinely meant compliment, MAL !

    I dunno..I try to give you a compliment,and just get laughed at.I just don't know what this world is coming to..... (Kidding !)

    *Cough*
    OK,I've gone rather off-topic.

    So....anyone got any ideas at this stage what they're planning to ask Amanda ?(No obligation to answer..I'm just curious !)

    Anyone bringing Mascots or other identifying objects,like huge and honkin' banjos ?

    Hmmmm...does a crate of Guinness count as an identifying object?
    LOL! I can just see it now...everybody standing around with badges (or a rolled up newspaper under their arm!) talking to each other...and me with a great big honkin' banjo on my back all on my own. Everyone will be too afraid to speak to me!

    You won't be on your own,dear pal.I promise. (I ain't scared of no Bev !)
    Anyway,I'll be the one carrying a Bagpuss toy,so I'll be easily identifiable to everyone .(If they want to be associated with a nut like me....)

    Seriously,though,badges are a good idea,imo .User names might be best ?
