"You and I remember Budapest very differently."

"I like feet."

"Am I being tangible? ...Gary?"

"How quickly can we buy this building?"

"...doors and corners..."

"Whatever just happened, blame it on the pig."

and speaking of jesus--i was happy to see that the raving bible thumper who spends a fair amount of time yelling at us that we're all going to burn in hell didn't get the memo about the change in the parade route:  he was down there, ranting and raving, at the *old* staging area.   ;D

I saw that! They've put the fabric up on Spoonflower (a custom fabric print-on-demand site) if anybody wants to make Marriott carpet-themed outfits. I'm trying to decide what to make...

Dressing as Buddy Christ is one thing, but I think dressing as Jesus (which is completely irrelevant to a sci-fi and fantasy convention) because you're trying to make some kind of point is..not very nice.  That's just me though.

Some  people are just out  to insult. I put it on the same level as people  wearing black face or dressing  as Hitler.  Its a way to show intolerance and hatred for an entire group of people .. ..and I'm not even religious . It's always the extreme fringe that has the loudest voice.

As for that extreme guy with the sign this year spouting that people were going to burn in hell...he can scream all he wants and I wouldn't care.  It's just sad that he had  that poor little 7-9 year old girl with him. She will grow up being fueled with those extreme viewpoints, and being brought to parades for those reasons instead of just going to parades with her parents to have that enjoyment in childhood. Just horrible.

I once thought I was an immortal Goa'uld, but as it turned out I'm just a confused mortal.
