Dragon*Con withdrawal

Dragon*Con ended Monday afternoon and I am already sad about it being over.
I had a pretty good time and got to meet Nichelle Nichols, Brent Spiner, Jonathan Frakes, John DeLancie, Jamie Bamber in addition to seeing Aaron Douglas and Richard Hatch again.
I spent way too much time standing in lines (3 hours for the BSG panel, but I was head of the line!) and trying to get back and forth from one hotel to the other.
Some things I learned at this year's Dragon*Con:
1) Spartans come in all shapes and sizes and their shields are really heavy.
2) People will throw up over a balcony at the Hyatt and it will land on someone's head.
3) If you leave your mate sitting long enough, a naked girl will come sit down with them.
4) Dog the Bounty Hunter is not just an urban legend.
5) In order to get your picture taken, all you have to do is tape a sign to your breasts.
6) It is possible to eat Long John Silver's 3 days out of 4 and live to tell about it.
7) When you lie down for a nap, set an alarm to make sure you make it to the next party.
8) Stormtroopers will dance for money
9) Corsets are very, very sturdy.
10) Take more than one extra day off for recovery.

Pics will follow soon.

Day before the Con!

I got the car back yesterday, but with a couple of minor changes. One of those being the fact that they lost my front license plate because they put my car through the car wash. grrr.
My friend Cherie who owns Red Dwarf is going to make a new one for me, hopefully before the parade Saturday. In the meantime I have too much stuff to do and not enough time to do it before tomorrow afternoon.
Oh, check this out, my friend Susan owns Yoda Dog and he is featured on the cover of an upcoming book!

Bad news before the Con

So here we are 4 days away from Dragon*Con and the car is in the shop. He is getting a new thermostat housing, new steering pump fan (3rd one!) and also in the process of changing the thermostat housing, a hose was pulled apart, so they have to order that and replace it tomorrow. In the meantime, I am driving a Hyundai Elantra. Blarg.

Is this thing on?

I am afraid that my blog is not behaving correctly. apologies all around.

Dragon*Con 2007!

Gearing up for Dragon*Con 2007, which is Labor Day Weekend here in Atlanta, GA.
We will once again be particpating in the Parade Saturday, September 1st @ 10:00am. Hopefully we can get some face time on CNN this year. I have some new mods that I will be debuting for this years parade.
In the meantime, we have been enjoying ourselves testing out the new 15% pulley that Way from waymotorworks put on the car. Also in the testing stages is the new setting on the rear swaybar. I have yet to get in a good twisty run, but I think a trip to the Dragon might be in order.
Until next time...keep motoring!

New Year..sorta

So it is a month into 2007 and we are still enjoying being minor celebrities. Last year we were mentioned in MC2 and also featured on Leg 8 of MTTS on MINIUSA. It was a great year of motoring and I look forward to more fun in the new year. In the meantime, here are couple of pics from MoTD 2006.
