* Hogfather Preview.

What? You don't understand the tentacles reference? You had to be there - Terry has been in negotiations with 'Hollywood' over the making of 'Good Omens' and various other projects for millenia, centuries, decades about ten years. Thirteen months ago, Sky approached him about the making of Hogfather - he's still waiting for The Suits to sprout tentacles from their heads. Rod and Ian have disappointed so far but the American backers came very close, demanding American actors replace some of the all UK cast, until they'd seen the post production film.

* The Gala Dinner was wonderful. For the first time, I was placed on a table with people I'd met many times before. Bucks Fizz was served in the Hub. We processed, as is traditional, as our forefathers have done for generations (i.e. at the 2004 Con.) behind our Guild Heads into the Dysk for an excellent 3 course meal.



Head of The Fools Guild and 'friends'.


Jack Cohen's table.


Ian Stuart's table.


The after dinner speech, where we learn which character Terry plays in Hogfather.


Caught in the act.


It's a fair cop.


God and his Godesses.


Hesadevil all scrubbed up.

It sounds like you need to cast a spell and keep everyone there for a while yet so the fun can continue.

You look very nice--but strangely plain next to some of those costumes! I would have thought a hat at least!

I doubt if anyone could sustain this level of fun for more than three days, and this Con seems to have started last Wednesday - and it still aten't over 'til the fat lady sings.

I'm sitting in exactly the same place I was when I took the picture of Terry signing, on the last entry. He and Steven are here again, and no doubt there will be more boobies thrust at them.

As for my gladrags - I don't do costumes, or posh very often, that's why I asked Gideon to take the photo - it's a rarity. Perhaps I should put it on E-Bay along with some of the 'teeth' from the set of Hogfather that have been given to members of the convention? Bits of the set were auctioned off for charity yesterday.

It sounds like so much fun! Love the pic of you, which actually answers a question I asked in a comment to one of your other posts. You *don't* dress up in costume! But you do look lovely. :)

I felt very loved last night, thanks to bellinghwoman who seated me on that table.
