Cardiff Comic Con

DSCN0334

I think the phrase I’m looking for is ‘Stupid Had’.

Saturday was Cardiff Comic Con. It was a lot of fun. I spent money I don’t have on things I don’t need.

There is something wonderful about Comic Con. I like seeing all the people in costumes. As you can see I wasn’t in costume. Although one person thought I was Indiana Jones. That’s quite good.

I may have to hand in my geek card as I couldn’t identify all of the costumes that where on show. There were; starfleet officers, stormtroops,  various Doctors, Thor, Anime/Manga characters, Batman, Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Hogwarts students, and many others.

I went to the Star Trek panel which featured Nana visitor and Rene Auberjonois. It was an enjoyable, if brief, event. Unfortunately it kept getting interrupted by the PA system. A man named O’Brian was required to report to ops the front desk.

At one point Rene Auberjonois talked about Colm Meaney but couldn’t remember his name. Mr Auberjonois said ‘I hope he hears about this.’

I got signed pictures from Nana visitor and Rene Auberjonois. They will join the pictures of Hannah Spearritt and Christopher Judge on my wall. That is as soon as I can find some money again.

I shall be going to comic con again the next time it comes around. I have a bit of a wish list for that one: Richard Dean Anderson, Amanda Tapping, Michael Shanks, George Tekei, Patrick Stewart, Jonathon Frakes, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, Levar Burton, Avery Brooks, Terry Farrell, Colm Meaney, Armin Shimerman, and Siddig El Fadil. At least those are the names that spring immediately to mind. Of course if they all show up I’ll be living in a very nicely decorated street corner.

As well as my signed photographs I also bought some classic Doctor Who dvds. I’ve just finished The Invasion – its very good.

I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
