Just because...

Moja - In all my years droving, I only ever got kicked by one cow, as I had really good instincts as to which were the ones to keep away from. The one that got me happened late in my career because I was in a hurry. As I jumped down from a fence, I realised I was too close and that this cow would kick me. She did. It pitched me into the ground and hurt like hell.

Mbili - I can't swim.

Tatu - One testicle is always bigger than the other in men. My smaller one became the bigger one after being hit with an empty plastic coke bottle thrown at someone else in a committee meeting way back in 1989. The bottle rebounded off them and the cap hit me in the testicle. It's still the bigger one today. The committee member didn't kiss it better, though I demanded it.

Nne - I always cry at the last episode of Catweazle, because I find it both incredibly happy and incredibly sad at the same time.

Tano - I use a visualisation mediation technique. When I am entering the visualised landscape, I shake like I'm having a fit.

Sita - Over the years I have planned out four television shows, with episodes and story arcs for multiple seasons, one of which was the animated Doctor Who series. The others were a dark, low-budget sf comedy, a sitcom based around the latest production crew on a long running children's sf show, and an 1984-esque alternate universe show about the underfunded anti-terrorist squad nicknamed the Housekeepers and set in Australia in 1999. The series arc would have led to the discovery that the government themselves were behind the attacks, and featured Housekeepers becoming terrorists/freedom fighters to bring down the corrupt government. I was working on the pilot script when some guys flew a plane into the World Trade Centre, and I realised this wasn't going to go anywhere for a long time.


Bed now, good night.

Which Commitee was it? Also, what are you feelings on the animated "Invasion" eps? I remember seeing bits of the animated Who you did, wish you'd persisted with it.

Conjunction committee.

I haven't seen it yet. I'm well behind on my DW DVD buying.

Who3D had lots of potential, the big problem was we were dealing with fans, so they were easily distracted and kept getting caught up in unrelated fanwank (let's all build spider daleks!) than getting on with the job.

Sad to say but the work on the animated DW for BBC burnt me out, 3D modelling-wise. It's why you still haven't seen a new dalek or the new console room out of me. I keep trying to get back into 3D modelling, but can't maintain any enthusiasm for more than a week or so.

Oh, that reminds me. The crystal thingy I was getting for Mum for christmas - the 3D laser bust portrait? They had a Dalek in one of those on display, a pretty crappy model the shop guys had run up on a slow day. I asked if they'd do others if you gave them 3D data and they said yes, as long as it's in DXF format they can turn it into a crystal. I was thinking that I'd like to give you one of these as a gift... using one of your models. Whaddaya think? (or would you rather the Tardis console? :-)

Ooohhhh... I should be able to convert to DXF...

I suspect the Tardis Console would be too fiddly... though that said, daleks are bloody fiddly too...

I must see this place and their stuff!

You are gorgeous. Never wonder why I like you ever again :)

what happens at the end of Catweazle, never saw that. Do they tell him he's going to be in "Creature from the Pit"?

I'm not telling. It's what the series has been building up to, but if you go looking you should be able to find out. Or you can ask me next time we're at a con :)

Mbili - I can't swim.

Might be a good time to learn. I'm wondering if some form of hydrotherapy might help with your condition, or with recovery if a diagnosis is made.

Certainly it would provide a means of exercise with less requirement for weakened legs to support your weight...

You should ask Angriest or Nullspace about some of the mucking around we did with a script for something called "War/Game"
