Skaara!  
I just saw that Alexis Cruz will again be appearing at the NJ con! Woo hoo! I'm still seriously bummed to be missing Steve Bacic but Alexis was a really nice guest. He has a lot of depth and is a *thoughtful* guy. Very interesting. I'm sorry I won't have Steve to drool over but Alexis is also very pretty. Now, if only they'd book Teryl. *sigh*

Oh, yes, I would absolutely ADORE it if we got Teryl again.

I don't think we could get enough of that woman.

Yanno, I'd actually got to a Teryl-Only Con. That would be asking a lot of her to carry a whole weekend by herself but she's such a hoot and I'd love to see her some time when she isn't manically rushing so that she can get on a plane and fly off to her next job. :)

She's my definite favorite of any guest, though Don Davis and Peter Williams run a close second.

She said she'd do a solo con in a heartbeat.

*needs to be able to un-break life to be able to sponsor that*

Hee! Teryl is such a trooper. :)

I don't know that I'd want the financial exposure putting together a con would entail but I'd sure be happy to attend TerylCon.

TerylCon is totally on my list :-)

And we need to get you to a con where Amanda is going.

No kidding! I'd love to see her onstage. :) And I don't have any of her autographs except for the one they mailed out the time she had to cancel because she had a death in the family. Which was amazingly sweet of her and I totally credit her for going "above and beyond" but the photo they chose to send me is my least favorite of all time.

Yes, Creation has the wonderful ability to have the worst head shots.

And they wonder why we would prefer to bring our own items rather than buy the utter crap they sell.

I haven't prepared anything for this con. :( I normally haul my HUGE collection of shit to each con for signing since I never know who will turn up. I wanted to make a bunch of matched prints like [livejournal.com profile] evil_moopie thought of, but I didn't have the time and I never found a smiling pic of Don that I liked enough to ask her to make for me. :| :|

I have a TON of stuff I'd like to have Amanda sign. They'd make a pile of money off me if they could get her to the con. Fortunately for our house fund, that simply isn't going to happen.

Partly to blame is MGM. How they can have such shit for official merchandise when they have such a stable of pretty people to plaster all over it, I do not know.

Yanno, thinking on it, I think TerylPalooza is a better name than TerylCon. ;)
[identity profile] triciabyrne1978.livejournal.com on October 24th, 2007 03:53 am (UTC)
Okay, I'd have to say that they're definitely in my tops... though Amanda would run pretty high up on the list too!
Mish[identity profile] hsapiens.livejournal.com on October 24th, 2007 04:39 pm (UTC)
Amanda would probably be on mine, too, if she ever came to cons where I am. *pout*

Actually, I really really enjoyed last year's line up and there weren't any big names (that I cared about) there. The "second string" are almost always more fun, any way since they aren't hounded by weirdos. I'm kind of hoping that Michael cancels (shocking! I know) and that they bring Teryl in, except I know that would break the hearts of some of my fellow f-listers who are going on just his day to see him. I don't want to wish that on them. But I do think that we won't have to put up with the creepy kid Albert if Michael isn't there and that makes any con better. :|
[identity profile] triciabyrne1978.livejournal.com on October 24th, 2007 04:45 pm (UTC)
Oh, fcol!

I'd almost forgotten about him.

Though, the one good thing...

This year we could always send my nephews over to beat him up if we wanted.

And trust me, the two of them would break him.
Mish: Teal'c -- Groovy[identity profile] hsapiens.livejournal.com on October 24th, 2007 04:54 pm (UTC)
You wouldn't find me trying to stop them. I don't approve of violence usually but it's obvious that the kid's parents are raising him to be a thug. Better he finds out now than in the prison cell he's so clearly headed for.
[identity profile] triciabyrne1978.livejournal.com on October 24th, 2007 05:18 pm (UTC)
My nephews aren't normally violent (except the normal brother stuff). But for this I would totally tell them to disregard things.

Albert brings out the worst in everybody, frankly.

Can you remind me again what your plans are for visiting NYC? I want to be sure to leave as much time free as I can for when we can cross paths.
Mish[identity profile] hsapiens.livejournal.com on October 24th, 2007 03:22 am (UTC)
Sure, though I fear we're going to miss each other. :( I'll be heading into Manhattan Halloween night (Wed.) for the parade and I'll be in Manhattan that Thursday to go to the Met (and maybe the Cloisters, depending on much energy I have). That's it. :(

I'll post an updated schedule tomorrow but the only change to the old one I posted a while back is that I added a Sunday trip tot he Smithsonian in D.C. before heading back into the wilds of eastern NJ so that I can visit with my high school/college/life buddy [livejournal.com profile] yams69, his wife, and their infant daughter. Then I'll do a drive by visit with [livejournal.com profile] mcroft and [livejournal.com profile] immlass.
[identity profile] la-directora.livejournal.com on October 24th, 2007 03:31 am (UTC)
If you've got time to get to NY to have some kind of meal before the parade, we might be able to meet up. Otherwise, I think you might be right. :( I'm so sorry. I'll try to be less insanely busy the next time you come up.
Mish[identity profile] hsapiens.livejournal.com on October 24th, 2007 04:42 pm (UTC)
I'm going to try to do this. It means I'll need to drop off my luggage earlier in the day but I don't want to miss you entirely. :| In fact, if something goes awry (and doesn't it always?), let's plan to have dinner regardless of the parade. I really want to see it, of course, and I'd like to do both but if I have time for only one activity then I'd rather have friend-time. I'm willing to forego the parade for the pleasure of a quiet, unhurried dinner. Come hell or high water, we should plan to have dinner -- and we should pick a nice place you really like since it's Samhain.
