of the great things about these shows is bumping into people you haven't
seen in a long time. Here's me with Jason! Jason and I were roommates
at Club Med Cancun when we worked there like 200 years ago! I haven't
seen him since Club Med Cancun! Check out my Tequila
Night and Club Med
stories for some more history.

was an absolutely INSANE day. As it was the first time we've done a
show in this location, it was a huge learning experience. Thankfully,
I had an awesome team of Volunteers helping out at the show!
the doors closed at the con on Pier 94, we moved to Pier 92 to set up
for the party. Little bit of "Spat Trivia", back in the early
90's, I used to build stages and booths for the conventions that were
set up at these Piers!
Friday night party was awesome! Naughty By Nature performed on stage!
Ryan (Hobgoblins 2) "thanking me" for the great placement
of her autograph table.
star Mike Hogan meets some of his "children". Man does he
pumped with Thomas Jane (The Mist, Hung)! He was scheduled to do a 1
hour free signing for the fans, but refused to leave until everyone
who wanted his autograph got one! His one hour signing turned into a
4 hour signing! This guy is amazing!
what can I say? It's freaking WILLIAM SHATNER!! I had to get a pic with
him. And his angry face. Big thanks to Froggy's
Photos! They rock! You get a pic with a celebrity, and then the
print it out for you so you can go get it signed!
and Drew with the Kirk. Notice how he's only angry in my pic.
Sean Young (Blade Runner)! She's even more beautiful in person than
she ever looked on screen!
Drew with the cast of Warehouse 13! Saul Rubinek, Eddie McClintock,
and Joanne Kelly!

the con closed up on Pier 94, we once again headed to Pier 92 for the
after party! This time with a performance by Taylor Dayne!
more Spat Trivia for you, two weeks before Big Apple was my Birthday!
But with the show coming up, I was working until 9 or 10pm every night,
and never got the chance to go out for my Birthday. So I had mentioned
that while on the phone with Josie Lee, and she swore she would bring
me a cake! She asked me if I wanted something written on it, and I told
her, "something dirty".
then right there at the party, she came out with a cake for me!
it's a Cheese Cake!
the inscription? "Something Dirty".
she did forget a fork, but it's the thought that counts!
got a bite!
thanks to Josie Lee!! And here's me, Josie and Camden Toy (Buffy the
me with Wizard Photographer, Dan Reilly!

on their shirts!
after-after party and I ALMOST got a picture of the illusive "Froggy".
Joanne Kelly. She told me that my eyes looked like "two piss holes
in a snowbank". It's shameless how she flirts with me!

she ended up working at the Warehouse 13 table all weekend!

one should have to live that hell!), Z, Mike Carbonaro, Froggy, all
the Artist and Media Guests, and everyone at Wizard and Big Apple! Awesome
show, and I'll see you all at the next one!
