Well, the urge to con is back. This time though, it's Stargate Atlantis, and in a very shallow manner the balance is being tipped by Joe Flanigan's attendance. It's at our old haunt the Thistle at Heathrow, and Ford and Ronon are on the list to go, along with a couple of others.

If I do go, it's most likely that this time, I really will go on my own. Yeah, yeah, said that last time, and in a flurry of activity ended up taking Meg and Lis to the Firefly/Serenity con. Which was several different kinds of yay! But this time I really don't think there are any Atlantis fangirls/boys I know, and to be honest my potential schedule would be unfair to anyone going with me.

I have both time and money constraints, which mean that if I go it'll be for 2 nights only, the Friday and the Sat. Which would mean getting out of the room Sunday morning, but hey ho. And driving back home Sunday night, but again, hey ho. The time restraint comes from a couple of things, both work related. I don't really have the holiday time available to take the Monday off, and anyway I want to be in work that Monday.

And as I can't take the week of as I did with the Firefly con, I don't want to be partying late and suffering from con flu the subsequent week, which is a week I want to have my head on straight. So I shall save time and energy by NOT partying, which is a foregone conclusion anyway if I am on my own. Far too shy and retiring am I, too venture out without my peeps with me, lol.

I would get off work early on the Friday, hare down to Heathrow, and really be there for the guests. Which will be weird because all previous cons have been partly for guests, partly for mates.

We shall see. I have also been tempted by another Firefly con in September. And I really DON'T know about that one!!

Dude. Hee.

I am dithering about the Firefly con, but eventually I thought, "Fuck it, I'm going!" (so the use of the Jayne icon is appropriate, hee!) Also, if we want to go to say anything the first 200 peeps get to go to, we have to buy tickets as soon as possible. Tickets go on sale 12th of Jan.

But I dare say Lis already emailed this to you. Hee. But I am sitting here, like the ickle devil on your shoulder, saying, "Do it! Dooooooo it!" :D

Oh frell! I've just realised I can't go. My friend is getting married on the 16th Sept, which is the Saturday! I had it in my head that the two didn't clash but I saw my friend last night, re checked the date and just this minute thought to check the website. SO that's it, decision made for me....ah well. But if you and Lis can find a way to go, GO!
