A short and early blog entry today as I’m heading off to the first stop in Robert C. Cooper’s farewell victory tour. ”What’s that?” you say. You didn’t know hew was leaving? Well, yes. Sad but true. His appearance at this year’s Comic Con panel will mark his final Stargate-related contribution, so if you happen to be in the San Diego area in late July, make sure to say goodbye and thank him for fourteen years and countless hours of gate-tastic entertainment. But, please – no tears. If you start crying it’ll only be a matter of time before he starts crying as well (the ole softy) and that’ll just embarrass him.
To all those wondering – roughly zero of you – after predicting the results of all three of today’s matches, I find myself in first place in our Office World Cup pool. Alas, I’m not alone. Carl, my writing partner Paul, and the ever low-key Louis Ferreira (SGU’s Colonel Young who, by the way, is looking forward to fielding your questions – provided you remember to post them), are also at the top looking down on every one else (ie. Ashleigh currently wallowing in third spot alongside Remi, Lawren, and the production mascot, a chimpanzee named Kerwick, who picked his selections out of a hat). Anyway, if Paraguay and Italy come through tomorrow as expected, and pesky Cote D’Ivoire manages to tie those overrated Brazilians, I’ll have the top spot all to myself come Monday morning. Just like old times.
Got an email from actress Janina Gavanker, Leigh Turner from The Gates, Papi from The L Word, and, most importantly, Sgt. “Dusty” Mehra from Stargate: Atlantis’s “Whispers” who pass along a link to a music video she recently completed. You can check it out here:
Okay, got my iPhone Maps function set and I’m heading out. If you don’t hear from me by Monday, start organizing search teams.
