*phone rings*

Me: Hello!

Dad: Hi, how are you doing? Are you at work?

Me: No, I'm not working today.

Dad: But I called your house and you weren't in! The phone rang out!

Me: I do leave the house occasionally for things other than work, you know.

I mean, I know I don't do all that much, but REALLY. Anyway, today I did many things, and took many photos, and also discovered that the Gaiman photos I thought I'd lost were just...on a different bit of my phone's memory or something, and have inexplicably reappeared. I'm not complaining, just bemused. So, photos of Collectormania this afternoon, and the Book Festival ten days ago and tonight.

Neil Gaiman
Gaiman taking questions:

Gaiman, Rankin, Mina and signer:

Me and Gaiman:

Collectormania: Amber Benson, Peter Davison, Kai Owen
I was lurking, rather than paying £10 or £15 for a signed photo. Low quality Amber Benson (for MMSing, but the high quality one I took is blurry):

Peter Davison:

Bored Kai is bored:

(I was annoyed about the person who wandered in front of me with a carrier bag, till I realised it had a Tardis in it.)

Douglas Coupland
Coupland (left) and host:

Coupland up close:

What's a photo post without a couple of randoms?
Tardis photo I liked (thankfully you can't see that they've painted it black):

Station symmetry:

And the books I bought today:

Generation A actually sounds like a return to form for Coupland, and I must find the JPod TV series, although he didn't sound too keen on it. And I picked up the new Best Of Tom Leonard poetry compendium - I've been meaning to get some of his poetry for ages.

As a prize for getting this far, two video links people showed me on their snazzy iPhones today: Literal Video for Birdhouse In Your Soul, and a fan-made "trailer" for a Green Lantern movie with Nathan Fillion.

Believe it or not, Peter Davison is the one living Doctor from the original series that I haven't met.

I've met Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy at cons here in the States, back in the 80s and early 90s. And I suspect that I nearly met Pat Troughton. They announced that one of the Doctors would be coming to an event near my college, but didn't say which. Then Pat died, and then they announced that we'd be getting Nyssa and Tegan instead. That was the event where the pic of me in the Tardis was taken :-)


BTW, the woman dressed as Peter in the pics is my best friend elaine_alina.

Ooh, that is a good TARDIS pic! It's the blue street-lighting and the light flare from the Nationwide building that make it, I think. You should make an icon out of it, and then people will go "Ooh, that's cool - what episode was it from?", and you're be able to reply "Ah-hah! A special sekrit episode that only I was in! HAH!", and it'll be ace. :-)
