Found out last night that Michael Shanks cancelled his con appearance because he will be filming overseas! Argh - why does everyone seem to cancel out on the NY area cons?! First it was Joe Flanigan and now Michael! One of my friends on Gateworld is so unhappy - she's driving down from Boston with her mom to go and since she'll be going to college in Florida, it's the last time she'll see Michael at a con. I feel so bad for her and I'm pretty sure it'll be the last time I'll ever see him too.

Maybe I am being selfish and I wish him luck on the new project but still - this had to happen at OUR con?! Teryl Rothery will be appearing instead and some other "mystery" guest (can't wait to find out - hope it's someone from Atlantis!). Since I have a Preferred ticket I'll be getting a complimentary autograph from Teryl so that will be cool. I didn't get much of a chance to meet her at the last con I went to. But still really teed off about Michael cancelling. We in NY seem to have the worst luck as far as cons go. *depressed sigh*

I have this splitting headache now and doubt the day can get much better from here. Not much else to say so signing off now.

My week so far has absolutely sucked. And today is only Tuesday! I can't believe that, once again, New York gets screwed. I wish Michael well and I have to say that he is the only one to attend the NY con *every year* up until now. But I really wanted to see Joe. I was so excited. But now I'm looking forward to meeting up with you and the rest of the people on GW. I'm determined to still have some fun.

Same here. I really wanted to see Joe too. Someone on that con thread said that you could exchange the NY con tickets for any of their other cons but there's no way I can fly out to Burbank... can't take off from work. I agree though, it's going to be fun meeting up with you and the other people from GW. It may be a setback but I think we're still going to have a good time, even if to finally put faces to the GW screen names ;)

And there's still that "mystery guest." I wonder if it would be DSD - though I'd still like it to be an SGA person - or Amanda. Guess all we can do is wait.

I'm sorry. I'd have had a fit if i was going and Joe backed out (family Ha! who wants to see them?... err j/k) and now Michael!! *sigh* well if i get my tickets to Burbank I'll get MS to sign yours. tackle him if i have to... of course it may be hard to beat off the 1000 of other girls... but with Jessica's help I'm sure we can manage...

Thanks. Yeah, just our luck... I really appreciate that though, thanks. Should have the pic to mail to you in a couple of days. That's right, you'll have Jessica there to help - I'm crossing my fingers! :)

I agree about the NY Cons.
This one is in a place you can't even get to without a car, so I'm not going.

I don't blame you. I wish they'd come to ones like I-CON. That one is much closer to me and easier to get to. Unfortunately it's a fan-run con and they don't really get many big name stars, except for some of the Star Trek people... and they did get Kevin Sorbo... but as far as SG people are concerned, I think that Carmen Argenziano, Tony Amendola and Alexis Cruz are really the only ones they can get. People like AT and MS are probably out of their price range or whatever...
