Bi My Sci Fi Con

The main reason for our trip this year was this guy, James Marsters. You know, Spike from BTVS. We had a couple of sightings, but, we never actually got to meet him.
Any of you 'Supernatural' fans out there?? Well, here it is, Dean's car. Sadly, there was no Dean, and no Sam. Now this guy made my day. Ernest Borgnine. He is 93. Can you believe that sh*t? He was in the original Posiedon, Marty, Airwolf, and the younger fans might know him from Sponge Bob. He is the voice of MerMan. He was a true gentleman, and I was honoured to have met him.


This is a bit blurry cuz we were on the move, but that is Darth Vader using the ATM.

Kayla got to meet Adam West. We did get an autographed photo, but his security guard wasn't letting anyone with a camera near him. Surprisingly, I was not tongue tied and I did not freak out. I have loved Adam West my whole life. My brother and I actually broke a floor model tv playing "Batman and Robin" when we were kids.
Good times, good times.
No word yet on who will be there next year. Not that it relly matters, I am sure that we will once again line up two blocks away, fight our way through the crowds, pay too much for food and have the time of our lives.

Earnest Borgnine is one of my heroes. He spent 10 years in the Navy and was a 1st Class (rank) Gunnersmate during WWII before going into acting. I would love to just shake his hand.

Coffeypot - I did shake his hand! He was a gentleman, and I am so happy to have met him. He was just as sweet as can be :)

So tell me something I've always wanted to know, but have been too lazy to find out: is Spike REALLY British?

It looks like you had a geeky good time! Yahoo!

I'm happy for you that you are able to do this. I know we go beyond our bonds for this we really like/love - then wonder at ourselves for being able to.

Same goes for the post about your sister.
