A few snippets from Gallifrey One 2010

I still fully intend to write up some kind of con-report about Gallifrey, but I returned from the convention into a whirlwind of work deadlines, house-hunting (seen 3 houses in past week; made offer on one but had it rejected in favor of another offer; due to see at least 2 more houses before week is out), and stuff. Also, I am currently testing the proposition that it is possible to fight off a cold by application of tea and sheer willpower. So far, it's working.

But I have been greatly enjoying reliving the convention through twitter and Youtube. Here are a couple of particularly fun videos:

Peter Davison's message to the convention. It was filmed off the screen, so it's a bit blurry, but still good fun. Davison's got quite a sense of humor.

The Unsung Hero. This was a masquerade skit about the Brigadier, featuring an impressive number of Doctors and companions, and a very good Brig costume. It was a big hit with the crowd at the masquerade - I was a bit surprised that it didn't win an award, as far as I can remember.

For various reasons related to the masq rules (iirc from honorarydoctor), including ones for length of the skit, they had to make it an exhibition-only one, so it wasn't in the running for an award.

Ah, that makes sense. I hadn't really picked up on the distinction between exhibition-only entrants and others, but it makes sense.

Nea's Never-Fail Con Crud Cut-Off:
Get a bottle of vitamin C pills that are at least 200% of the daily recommended dose.

Take one a day the week before the con.

Take two a day (morning and night) at the con.

Take one a day the week after the con.

It's too late now, but remember it. I've *never* gotten sick no matter where I travel as long as I remember to do this.

Thanks - duly noted. Though I'm not sure if what I'm fighting off is con crud or office crud. Although in a lot of ways it would make sense to treat work during a crunch week just like a particularly masochistic kind of con...
