Last year, my spousal unit and I went to Rose City Comic Con. And like most comic cons – this one was a blast. It was my first Rose City Comic Con and I got to see some great people. Unfortunately, I couldn’t afford the autographs and photos, but I got to learn the ropes.
One of my favourite shows growing up was Battlestar Galactica. Yes, I am THAT old! So, I was able to see two of the actors from the original show at two different comic cons.
At Rose City, I saw Richard Hatch (Apollo of original Battlestar Galactica and Tom Zarek of the new rendition). His entire presentation was about how he wants to bring back Battlestar Galactica (particularly his Apollo). He even had a video that he made (which was a little cheesy). And that has been his riff for a number of years. I just have to say, with respect, let it go man!
Last year, at Emerald City Comic Con – I met Starbuck (Dirk Benedict). THAT was an awesome experience. Very nice man. He commented on my glasses (Dolce and Gabbana) and how much he liked them on me. Sweetie bear. He was my very first MAJOR crush on an actor. I gotta say – I’m not over him.
Funny thing – it was his 68th birthday that day (March 1). If I look that good at 58, I’ll be happy.
This year, I am volunteering at Rose City Comic Con. And it looks like I was assigned to Admissions. Look out people – I’m gonna see alllll of you!!
