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!’
I’m working from home today because I had a doctors appointment this morning. The coughing from the flu is really pinging my asthma so I went down to get it looked at. Spent a little time on a nebuliser and have another three days worth of oral steroids.
Working from home on payday actually seems to mean: AND NOW CASSIE BUYS ALL THE GIG TICKETS!
So. Um. The next couple months now looks something like
January 30 Gary Quinn @ Gullivers, Manchester
March 08 Gary Quinn, Luke & Mel and Raintown @ 229, London
March 11-13 C2C @ 02 London
March 22 Emma Stevens @ Robin 2, Bilston
March 26 Day out at the British Museum, London
March 28 Dexeter @ Castle Hotel, Manchester
April 28 Jess & the Bandits and Luke & Mel @ Oobleck, Birmingham
May 11 Jason Donovan @ Symphony Hall, Birmingham
I’m also very tempted with
April 23 – 24 Wales Comic Con – depending on who they announce
April 30-May 1 East Midlands Comic Con – Torri Higginson, Rainbow Sun Francks & Pauly McGillion
Oooh I’m all excited. I love having gigs planned… it makes me feel like me!
