Gareth and James in Melbourne :)  
Did anyone else know that Gareth and James were going to be at the Supernova thingy in Melbourne (Australia) this weekend? I only found out cos a very good friend of mine who was staring at James rang me to ask if I knew, which I didn't and promptly squeaked at her.

I'm trying very hard to get there tomorrow since both GDL and James will be there. Of course I chose this weekend to come down with some idiot bug that's making me sleep so I may just end up snoring at poor Gareth if I can get the courage to go near him that is.

If by some miracle I pluck up the courage and talk to Gareth and not squeak illegibly at the poor man I can post whatever happens here if anyone is interested :)

I'm interested, :). Feel better soon!

:) and thankyou. I'm not sure if I still have the bug this morning or it's sheer terror that's making me feel nauseous o_O.

I suspect I'll spend most of the day with Bugs expression on my face *points at icon*

Probably a bit of both. Just remember - celebrities are people too! :)

Oh! I never thought of that.

Well that sucks that you can't get to Melb at least :(

It was announced back in December on the Supanova site that Gareth would be attending. He was in Brisbane last weekend. Don't worry. I'm 35 and I was incoherent meeting him.

*hides under bed in embarrassment*

I have (bad) pics on my LJ if you're interested. Let me know and I'll unlock the post.

Shows you how dumb I am. I didn't even know we had a convention like this he'd come to.

Really? *hides with you* I know I will be. I just hope I don't throw up on the poor man and hell yes I'm interested :)

Give me a minute and I'll unlock the post. They aren't very good as we couldn't use the flash. *pouts* You can read all about my embarrassment.

And an LJ friend contacted me about it, knowing that Gareth and Karl Urban are on my 'Top five men I'd crawl over glass to snog' otherwise I wouldn't have had a clue either.

Its been reasonably well publicised - certainly listed on the official GDL site and the unofficial site at www.garethdavid-lloyd.org

I really should follow the man more. Teach me not to.

I met both Gareth and James at the Melbourne gig today. Both were total sweethearts, and very easy to talk to. I paid for two pics with Gareth, and for the second one he turned me around, stood behind me, wrapped his arms around me and put his face next to mine. Total and absolute sweetheart.
Trishspartan_117 on April 17th, 2010 09:37 pm (UTC)
Really? Oh gods my friend says I have to have my pic taken with or she'll disown me but I fail to see how I'm going to do that if I a puddle of nervous mush at his feet.

I'll be happy if I manage an illegible squeak at him since that was all I managed when I met Terry Pratchett

Seriously go!

You'll regret it forever if you don't, especially because I have it on good authority (ie: from the man himself) that after Melbourne Supanova, the con in Germany and then Wales Comic Con (which I'm going to) he won't be doing anymore cons for the foreseeble future.

Trishspartan_117 on April 17th, 2010 09:34 pm (UTC)
Really? Well that sealed it and I'm going :) Talked myself into it yesterday and now I'm a nervous wreck and it's only 7am.

Since I have to ride my motorbike to the Con I'm hoping it'll take the edge of my nerves. Although given the driving standards and B-Triple trucks I share the road with I'll prolly get to the Con a nervous wreck one way or another *sighs*

*He's just another man, he's just another man*

Yeah he told a bunch of my friends (the group with the tw bears ^^) when they went to his Panto last year.

I cried when I first read the news ages back, because I'm from Australia, and I had already booked my plane ticket to England for 6 months when I found out.
I've been going to Supanova for 6 years now :(

I went to hub the weekend of brisbane supanova, which helped take my mind off it... somewhat. kai and tom really didn't help when they kept mentioning him through.
that's when my friends said that I HAVE to go to WCC, but I'm starting to worry slightly about the bloody Iceland volcano stopping Gareth from flying back in time.

I feel like an idiot having to ask this, but who is James?
Trish: TW Ianto Helllooooospartan_117 on April 17th, 2010 09:30 pm (UTC)
Don't and James is James Masters :)

I hope you had fun and enjoyed meeting them. Gareth is a total sweetheart. I met both him and James at Dragon*Con, which is like Supernova except it takes place in the US. I went to this dinner that James hosted and Gareth was his guest, there were only 59 other people there. It was AWESOME!
