I tell you though, I think Tom would have been very impressed with the coverage on my dining room table, around the floor leaning against the bookcases, and over on the antique round oak table of Pattie Anne's Dr.Who/Tom Baker collection. I still can't believe what fit in the trunk of their car - and that wasn't all of it either.

It is fun to finally put a voice as well as a face to 'web friends'.

Yes, it was fun to meet people who have shared your life with you, at least some aspects of it.

I wonder if Tom would want to see a picture of Mouser all decked out in her sssisterhood dress with makeup.

When we travelled to the Panopticon, we both had made red dresses in emulation of the ssisters who captured The Doctor in the Brain of Morbius. We made these wonderful dresses to wear to the party Saturday night, as is the norm for fan conventions in the states. We got all gussied up and showed up at the Saturday night caberet and soon realized we were the only ones dressed in our Who-related costumes. Apparently, the time to have worn them was during the activities of the day. Needless to say, we slipped along the back hallways all the way to our room, and didn't come out again until the next morning. This was the first major disappointment we had in the string of many during our trip. We had worked so hard on those dresses and knew we would just have such a good time wearing them.

Besides, they were heavy as could be, and we had to lug them all over England! :lol:

Heather did a great job with the sssister makeup. She's quite the arTISTE! I don't even know if I have that pic. I must somewhere. Then I would have to figure out how to post it.

I think there were maybe three other people in costume that night, but our costumes were not mainstream enough. There was a Romana is a white gown, cybermen and some long colorful scarves, but that was it. They wanted a more "sophisticated" convention, they were at the HIlton and they discouraged dressing up.

Whatever.

As Tom's Doctor said: "What's the point in being all grown up if you can't act childish, sometimes."

I have my silly hat and pokey firestick too! Now isn't that fun?

I am in need of another trip. Winter has set in and even tho Xmas is around the corner, I need some fun and warmth. Now warmth to me is above 30 degree Fahrenheit or 0 degrees centigrade. :shock:

Funny, I walked around London and other places in England where it was in the 50s F (10-15º C?) wearing just a long sleeve shirt and I was fine.

90s in Florida (30º C) at GU's sapped the life out of me.

Well Tracy, I'm no astrologer either, but it would certainly be pretty cool to step out onto the surface of another moon/planet, though I think it highly unlikely that these sort of excursions will be possible in my lifetime and certainly not on my budget!

There must be life out there somewhere, whether they will be as colourful as the many life forms encountered by the Doctor on his travels and display such an excellent command of the English language remains to be seen!

Dear Gold Usher:

I wish I could meet you, Madgoth, and mouser too. Especially Pattie Anne, who I like to think of as my best Whovian friend and sister. I wish I had money to travel. If I had lots of money I would arrange for us all to meet and have TOM there too to laugh along with us. I really miss Stumpycat. I haven't had the chance to speak with Stumpycat(she was the biggest Led Zeppelin fan I knew and that rocks!!!!) since 2005 when I left the former TOM forum, but it was not because I fell out of love with TOM, just that I couldn't afford the internet anymore. Plus I had run dry of things to say at the time. Now since the new series has come out I have new things to say about TOM(even though he hasn't appeared in the series yet. Although his face was seen in "The Next Doctor", and his drawing was seen in "Human Nature". I hope Steven Moffat brings TOM along for a story or two. Here's hoping. Fingers crossed. :D
