I am an excited llama!

I am a very excited llama.

Amanda Tapping was announced for Collectormania a while back. That in itself was enough to trigger utter glee, because… hi! Tickets purchased. Lots of joy and squee.

Then last night, Michael Shanks was also announced for Collectormania. There are no words in the English language – or any others – that can adequately express the sheer level of fangirl that triggered off. According to Dragon, I was very high pitched and squeaky and bouncing.
Michael is the only one of the original SG1 I haven’t met and Daniel is my favourite character and I just… I… words fail. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

As if that wasn’t enough, Richard Dean Anderson was announced for London Film & Comic Con. LFCC in 2015 was panic attack inducing for me and I spent most of the event hiding either in Pizza Express or outside because yeaaah that wasn’t fun. We seem to have tickets, however… And I figure hey, I’m a lot more balanced and I have the propanolol if need be.

Jack! Sam! DANIEL!
It is apparently a very good year to be a Stargate fan in the UK!

100 Things That Make Me Happy

As part of my 101 Things In 1001 Days I set out to write a list of 100 Things That Make Me Happy.

It took me something like 2 months to compile the list and I was mindful to try to make sure it wasn’t just fandom related – that it was very well-rounded and covered a variety of things that I enjoy.

If I’m honest, It was actually a lot harder to do than anticipated. I don’t know if that’s just because of how down I’ve been over the last 6 months or so. At the same time, though, writing it and re-reading it has been a pretty good form of therapy. Reminding me of little things that make me smile – and nudging me to go and do some of them.

Anything than involves happiness is never a bad thing, right?

So here is 100 things that make Cassie happy
1. Going to bed and knowing I don’t have an alarm set in the morning
2. Having a hot bath, putting on warm & clean pjs and getting into a freshly made bed with clean bedding
3. Getting a forward-facing window seat with a table on the train to work
4. Getting any seat on the train home from work
5. My Natalie
6. My Dragon
7. Stargate SG1
8. Stargate Atlantis
9. Star Wars
10. TLOR gigs
