Space City Con Houston 2013

So I know I have been very lax on updating this blog. Some of the reason is that I have been job hunting and the other is because I have had so many pictures to go through. I know I had mentioned that my dream was going to come true, that I was finally going to meet my Doctor, the one and only Sylvester McCoy. Well, I did. Last August, around this time last year I went to Houston’s Space City Con and met my favourite Doctor! I got to the hotel and got into my room which was a fantastic room overlooking the lobby! It was never a dull moment down there in the lobby (as you can see) and I greatly enjoyed looking down from the balcony and seeing the “show below” so to speak. I thought it was just lovely how all the20130803_091827se Clone Troopers greeted me!!

My ex was working the con.. (yes this is the one that got away folks) so I had the added pleasure of looking down and seeing her in all her gorgeousness!  (That’s her in the blue shirt & white pants, taking a break from working at the registration desk which she did all weekend. )

Another cool  thing was that I got a con t-shirt and it has a great design with a Stargate on it.. Here I am wearing it on my way out for a spin in the 20130803_124715TARDIS. Don’t worry if you look hard enough you’ll see the Doctor is standing behind me in a long sleeved green shirt with a white vest, so it’s not like the TARDIS was getting stolen (again) or anything. And yes, I was very excited to be this close to my Doctor. In fact I was totally chuffed to be standing so close to him in the photo op. 20130904_173622

I had also ordered a backstage thing and they changed the venue or something and I couldn’t find it or my Doctor so I ended up getting to sit with him at his autograph table and we just talked for about 10 minutes and I told him my favourite episodes with him and told him about how the Merlin thing was intriguing to me and he agreed he enjoyed that “Mystique” of his Doctor. He shared with me that he had just recently had an arthroscopy and of course having had 2 already I knew how he felt, literally. Of course I didn’t have the cool chair like he did.  Below is a picture of him in his motorized chair. The picture quality is very poor but if you look closely you will see that he is playing spoons which is no easy feat considering he’s juggling (heh. so to speak) his microphone 20130803_141841while playing the spoons. This guy is so talented. I know a lot of Whovians think him to be a clown but that’s part of his power as the Doctor. He can play the fool and be luring you into a trap and because he is so brilliant it is usually a trap of your own making..

Check out the kilt!  I wished I could have just stuffed him in my pocket to carried him around with me all weekend. Especially to help me when I encountered these  villains!

Besides facing multiple deaths, all in all the convention was great and I left there with TONS of good memories of the con and since I was born in Houston I got to eat at my favourite restaurant, Monterey’s Tex Mex with my brother, his wife, niece and nephew-in-law.

My Favourite Doctor Who Quotes

“It’s like when you’re a kid. The first time they tell you that the world’s turning and you just can’t quite believe it because everything looks like it’s standing still. I can feel it. The turn of the Earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at a thousand miles an hour. And the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at sixty-seven thousand miles an hour and I can feel it. We’re falling through space, you and me. Clinging to the skin of this tiny little world and if we let go…” – 9th Doctor

“All over the world fools are poised, ready to let death fly. Machines of death screaming from above. Light brighter than the sun. Not a war between armies, nor a war between nations, but just death. Death gone mad! A child looks up into the sky, his eyes turn to cinders. No more tears, only ashes. Is this honour? Is this war? Are these the weapons you would use?” – 7th Doctor

“It came because it couldn’t stand to watch your children cry. What if you were really old, and really kind and alone? Your whole race dead, no future. What couldn’t you do then? If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your race…. you couldn’t just stand there and watch children cry.”  – Amy Pond

“There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, and the sea’s asleep, and the rivers dream; people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there’s danger, somewhere there’s injustice, and somewhere else the tea’s getting cold. Come on, Ace. We’ve got work to do.” – 7th Doctor

“Our lives are important — at least to us — and as we see, so we learn… Our destiny is in the stars, so let’s go and search for it.”  – 1st Doctor

Never Forget.

Sylvester McCoy is my Doctor!
