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!

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

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:

THANK YOU
THANK YOU
THANK YOU
!!!!

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)

Gallifrey One 2014 – Saturday

Gallifrey One 2014 - Saturday

One picture will pretty much some up Saturday for me. I’ll give a proper update later, but for now enjoy the TinLitter with the Eighth Doctor.

A jumbled mess of squee

31 Jan

Good morning my lovelies! How’s everyone doing?

January is always crazy at work, and this year has not been an exception. Customers shipping late or buying after-christmas deals = chaos (still).

How’s the New Year’s Resolutions coming along? Break any, or all of them, yet? Obviously mine isn’t going as well as I planned since I am just now writing my second post of the month. So, big oopsie there :-p

Brightside to the chaos, Gallifrey One is in less than two weeks!!! Can’t wait to see my Who family again ❤

And on top of being totally stoked for Gally, my ribbons finally arrived! They are even cuter than I hoped for! Love love LOVE them!

????????????????????????????????????????????

 OH! Did you guys see the new Serenity comics came out this week?!?! THEY. ARE. AMAZINGG!

??????????????????????

Of course I grabbed all three covers. Totally worth it! I won’t give anything away yet, so GO FORTH AND READ THE SERENITY FANTASTICNESS!

Enough of that squee-ing and more, well…squee-ing. My larger version Ninth Doctor arrived. He was my first Doctor and always will be. Love the man!

 Much like the title of this blog post said, this has been Jessica’s “…jumbled mess of squee”, heehee. More timely posts to follow next month. Actually, expect a bunch of Gallifrey One related posts next month 🙂

Signing off,

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.

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,
jms

Gallifrey One 24

5 May

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:
