Gallifrey One 2018

11 Feb

It’s that time of year again!

After taking 2017 off, I am returning for my 6th Gallifrey One! Huzzah! 😉

I’ll be meeting up with most of Team Wine Lords from Austin (Laura, Eric, and Mark), and it’ll be good to see other friends I haven’t seen in almost 2yrs! I can’t wait to see everyone 😊

Relaxation, family, friends, and geekery…….stay tuned. The adventure begins Tuesday!

Why I’ve smiled lately…

5 Jul
I can’t put EVERYTHING in this list that has made me smile (keeping it PG lol), but here’s a small sample from the last month and a half (sorry it’s been so long!):



It’s two of my favorite animals in one photo! I need more cute photos like this 🙂


Spent Comicpalooza with two awesome friends. Shout outs to Molly and Mark! It was definitely an interesting blast, because FOUR DOCTORS! 😉

Speaking of Doctors……..


I was able to mark another Doctor off my list: the Fifth Doctor! He may not be my favorite Doctor, but I have found I absolutely adore Peter Davison ❤ Plus come on, this photo is awesome (mainly because we were all laughing as my wig had attacked his face at first)


Gotta love us Shafer gals 😉 Family embraces your weirdness (only because they are just as weird!)

Helped End Alzheimer’s on The Longest Day this year with my loves, Team Wine Lords. Always have a blast with these people.


And most recently, spent a long weekend with my parents celebrating their 35th Anniversary  ❤

Love you Moeder, love you Dad!


Gallifrey One sold out. And no one should have been surprised. Or angry. Entitled Twats!!

22 Mar

Gallifrey One sold out. And no one should have been surprised. Or angry.  Entitled Twats!!

All I have to say to the showrunners of Gallifrey One is this:


You gave us fair warning at this year’s convention. You repeatedly posted it on the website, on Facebook, and on Twitter. We all knew, and a lucky 3200 of us were able to get tickets. (in 75 minutes, no guest announcements…it speaks volumes to the fantastic jobs you all do every year!)


I would say to not let the entitled twats complaining about it get you down, but judging by the most awesome post on your website (refer to the above screengrab) I would say that you aren’t.

So to the entitled “fans”, take Gally’s advice and go to another Doctor Who convention. (They are all awesome conventions afterall)

And to Gallifrey One, another THANK YOU! (it can’t be said enough)

(a grateful Gally1 fan)

Dallas Comic Con 2012: Day 2

29 May

Day 2, dun-dun-dunnnnnnn 😉

We woke up early to get ready for the Sunday of the convention. I had planned to do my Army of Ghosts/Doomday Rose Tyler outfit, but I had a raging headache. I put on my Rose makeup, had the wig cap on and then the headache became a migraine. I knew I wouldn’t last 6+ hours in a tight wig, so I said to hell with cosplay and threw on my Shiny Bock Beer shirt and some jeans. Laid back and comfy turned out to be a godsend because it turned out we had plenty of waiting around to do.

Dallas ComicCon 2012: Day One

28 May

So, it has been a week since Dallas Comic Con. I wanted to do this wrap-up the day or two after it was over, but alas that did not happen. I’ve already covered the drive up to Dallas here, so let’s continue on to the first day of the convention.

My badges for the weekend


So, here we go: Continue reading

Stan Lee clip from Dallas ComicCon 2012

Stan “the Man” Lee talks about Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane at Dallas Comic Con May 19, 2012. (Ignore the crazy laughing. Between mine, my friends and the little boys next to us, there is a constant random hyena sounding laugh.)

Dallas Comic Con pretrip Entry

18 May

I’m in the middle of packing (we’re leaving in 4 hours), and decided that I needed an entry to cover my first trip to DCC. Guests that will be there that I’m excited about: Sir Patrick Stewart, Summer Glau, James Marsters, Stan Lee, Pete Mayhew, Dave Prowse, Jeremy Bulloch, and John DeLancie. The one thing I don’t like is how expensive everyones’ autographs and photo-ops are. I’m only getting Summer’s autograph, which will be Firefly cast #5! Over half of the cast then 🙂

Well, considering I’ve been up for 14 1/2 hours, that’s all your getting out of me. I must finish packing before 5p. I’ll post more after the convention tomorrow and Sunday.  Everyone have a fantastic weekend!

Much love,

Gallifrey One 24

I’m stoked for next February! Hell, who am I kidding? I was ready for next Gallifrey as soon as closing ceremonies for this year’s were over. I’ve got our hotel booked.  Well, hotelS anyways. We’re staying at the Travelodge on Wednesday night, and then moving to the Marriott on Thursday afternoon. I need to find two roommates for the Marriott, but I’m not in a hurry. I do, however, wish they would at least announce the first guest(s) already! Shaun’s hinted at who they are in the last email:

“Now that the dust has settled a bit… we will be making our first guest announcements sometime during the Spring. Our first guest group is usually from ‘Classic’ Who and this year will be no exception. For example: in our first batch, look for a companion actor who’s never done Gallifrey One, a companion actor who’s been gone from Gallifrey One for over a decade, and a production team member making an extremely rare US appearance.”

So you know I jumped on Gally’s website right away to figure out who hasn’t been before/in the last 10+ years. I’ve pretty much got it figured out, well, I think I do anyways. We’ll see 🙂 Continue reading

1,064 registered for Gally!

21 Apr

Per GallifreyOne: “There are currently 1064 total members of Gallifrey 2013 as of 21 April 2012.”

Idk if that is more than last year at this point, but it seems like alot already, considering Gally is still 10 months away. Maybe I’m still in the Gally newbie stage or whatever, but I’m still stoked 🙂

If you’re thinking of going, here’s the registration info:




10 Apr

So, I have a few conventions coming up that I’m counting down. I can’t wait!!

Dallas Comic Con: May 19-20

Comicpalooza (Houston): May 25-27

Texas ComiCon (San Antonio): June 22-24

Austin Comic Con: October 26-28

Gallifrey One (LA): February 15-17, 2013

I never thought living in Austin would put me in a prime convention spot. Then again, I didn’t get into conventions until I was 30. Yay for being a geek!

Anyone have conventions they recommend? Do you go to cons? Let us know!!

Peace & Who
