Michael Shanks and Amanda Tapping have both cancelled Gatecon *sadface*
I’m not gonna lie, I AM a little heartbroken.
Michael’s the only one of the original four I’ve not met and I was looking forward to finally meeting him. I’ve heard so much awesomeness about him.
And I think we all know my sheer and epic utter love for Amanda. She’s just fucking incredible and I draw permanent orange sparkly hearts around her for she is LOVE. Honestly, I tear up every time I remember meeting her.
So yeah, sadly little llama.
HOWEVER, let’s face it, the number one rule of con is ‘You don’t book for one guest’, there’s still an amazing lineup of people I can’t wait to meet/again, with RDA and Hewlett on the top of that list. I’m so pumped to see RDA again, that smile still slays me and Hewlett is awesome.
Plus, there’s the whole ‘two week holiday with my Natalie aspect of the trip!’
When I was but a wee llama, I was madly in love with Jason Donovan. You know, back when he looked like this. Oh be still my pre-teen beating heart! The tousled blond hair, the brown eyes, the perfect smile, the tan… ♥
I adored him as Scott Robinson in Neighbours and my little heart was broken when Scott married Charlene. There were tears. I remember it well.
I loved his music too. I had all the singles on 7″ and all his albums on tape. I’m not sure I should even be admitting this but I can still sing along wordperfect to songs like Too Many Broken Hearts or Especially For You (I’d forgiven him for marrying Kylie at that point!), or When You Come Back To Me. My parents even took me up to London to see him playing Joseph in the West End, which started a whole new love.
I still have a ridiculous amount of love for that musical and have seen it many many times. ALL THE LOVE.
Then, of course, it all came crashing down with the drugs and he disappeared into obscurity, once again breaking my tween heart. The pain, the agony! *cries*
I also have no idea why I’m writing a blog post about my late 80s/early 90s love for an Australian soap/popstar. I have however discovered he does an All 80’s Show on Heart FM on a Sunday night so I might have to look into that.
And sure, the drugs and all really aged him badly but he’s still a good looking guy and I also can’t help but think how much he looks like his dad!
I’m now going to be really pathetic and wander over to Spotify or iTunes and see if I can’t find me some ‘classic’ Jason to listen to!
