2. So today is the first day of the Armageddon pop culture expo, which is the closest Australia gets to a big media con like Comic-Con. Originally the guest line-up included JMS, Bruce Boxleitner, Mira Furlan, Claudia Christian and Patricia Tallman.
Then JMS and Pat Tallman cancelled.
Then Claudia Christian pulled out.
"Fine!" I thought, "I'll just go and be creepy at my OTP!"
Then, Wednesday, Mira Furlan lost her passport. So ... it's just Boxleitner.
I have an autograph token, which is probably good for about 30 seconds of conversation. I've spent the last couple of days training myself not to blurt out anything about his blinding white teeth, his ex-wife's tell-all autobiography or his weird resemblance to Bill Clinton. And hopefully I'll manage to not tell him he was the bland, conventionally attractive centre around which all the really amazing acting happened. (indeed reckons I should just ask to touch his teeth. WE'RE GOING FOR NOT-CREEPY HERE!)
Perhaps I'll just ask if the stunt people inside the Kosh costume suffered very greatly from their inability to turn around in confined sets.
