Well, I thought it was well worth having a holiday in California and hitting a giant Nerd convention at the same time. I was delighted to meet Gina Torres there (she was a VERY good convention guest). Please find a link to some pictures of the con below (sadly my camera was kind miserable at taking shots in the dark stage area and I HATE the damned flash on that thing). I really need to get a digital camera!

Great pictures!
Gina looks beautiful!

You were kidding about Sally Kellerman right? She was in the original Star Trek episode w/Gary Lockwood (becoming Gods and all) AND she played Hot Lips in the original movie version of M*A*S*H

It looks like you had a great time and met a lot of stars...it must have been a really wonderful convention (wish I had been there!)

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Wow!

Gina is stunning in that first pic of you two together. She looks better in person than on TV.

Great pictures! Gina is amazing-looking!!
I've been to one of those conventions and it was great fun. Shatner was hella-funny as was Marina Sirtis (ST:TNG).
Got to meet Nichelle Nichols, who was one of my sheroes when I was a kid.
Yeah, the nerds were there, as well as the people in costume. There was even a Klingon wedding between a couple who met at a convention.
Did anyone ask Gina about Firefly, the cancelation and the upcoming movie?

"Take me, sir. Take me hard."

That's John Rhys-Davies who played Leonardo DaVinci on Star Trek: Voyager, but you knew that.

Hey guys!

Yeah. Gina Torres. :) :) :)

She's REALLY quite tall too - and those lips. Wow! (My favourite Firefly woman before that was Jewel 'cause I'm an engineer in RL and she's playing my dream woman!)


I knew Sally Kellerman was the woman from the pilot Trek episode, but I never liked MASH, so I didn't know her from that.

And yeah, it ws John Rhys Davies (brilliant actor IMO), I really liked Sliders (well, those episodes I saw before BBC 2 Scotland axed it in favour of weird Gaelic kids TV!).

Apologes for my rank sarcasm in that (VERY basic website), but the reason I made it was for my mates who were also there. (Hence the lame Fat Shat jokes). ((I've went off him since I met him in person 2.5 years ago; very arrogant and 'nasty' in person, but he's very good up on stage)).

He looks very thin. But then again, last thing I saw him in was LOTR which he moaned about as he had to wear all that makeup (he said he wouldn't play Gimli's grandfather if they made a Hobbit film because of all the makeup). I presume he also wore padding in the movie?

My earliest recollection of him was from Indiana Jones, and nah, he hasn't aged at all.

Yes, Gina is VERY beautiful. . .

But I can't help but be a little dissapointed in her.

I mean. . .she STILL hasn't figured out that she and I are destined to be together forever.

I mean. . .come on! Is she waiting for a ruttin' engraved invitation or something?

Wow, Gina's gorgeous! And that's not even a publicity shot or anything. I know some actresses are...unimpressive in person, but...WOW.

Wow. Okay, done drooling now. And I'm very, very, straight. Can I just stare for a few more minutes?
