Showmasters have just (read: a few hours ago) posted saying that they have booked the first guest for The Hub 3. Lord help me. The Hub 2 hasn't even started yet and I've already, mentally spent another few hundred pounds. Bad Allieandra.
My theory is that I'll probably get at least some money for my 21st so I'm okay to spend a few hundred pounds like that *snaps fingers*.
Anyone else wanting to join me??
No idea when/where it is yet. Or who the guest is but I so regret not going to the first Hub that I don't want to be in that situation again. Although The Hub 3 will probably mean no Hallowheden. Might still do Utopia in June though, either that or Collectormania.
*Is hyper and needs to sleep*

Coming soon: (hopefully)

2. Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Entire series boxset. Cos Buffy is Buffy and it may age (season one) but it's still awesome.
3. Queer as Folk (US). Entire series boxset. The dvd player will have to be multi-region as this monster only exists as region 1, and possibly whatever the chinese region is. Because I need to know how it ends. Only seen seasons 1-4 and not 5. I've read the ending but need to see it with my own eyes before I believe it.
4. The House On Haunted Hill. The remake. The only horror move that has managed to scare me. Recently bought the dvd but haven't had time to watch it yet.
5. Teachers (UK). Entire series boxset. The funniest TV programme ever.
1. Bold the names of guys you'd definitely shag.
2. Italicize the names of guys you might shag after a little persuasion.
3. Leave the guys who don't do anything for you alone.
4. Put a question mark after the guys you've never heard of. ?
5. Strike the guys you wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole.
6. ADD FOUR OF YOUR OWN AT THE END.
NOTE THAT THESE ARE THE FICTIONAL CHARACTERS, NOT THE ACTORS THEMSELVES...

I know it was aimed at what makes a man gay, but do similar thing count for women?
Gay men tend to have famale 'best friends' when they were younger.
My best friend when I was younger was Robert Chapman. Apparently we used to lock ourselfs in the bathroom and noone had any idea what we got up to! My most resounding memory of him is playing with his playmobile pirate ship.
So toys; yes I had Barbies and Sindys when growing up, but they were all gay, except from Emma Bunton & Robbie Williams who got married, and even then Emma dabbled. Seriously. The best bit about the dolls were the cars (one of mine was a corvette!) and the horses. Action men were on the scene aswell.
As well as playing with Roberts I also had a large collection of playmobile. - Are they boys toys or girls toys or both?
My favourite of my childhood toys were my cars. Still got a selection of my favourites in my room, hoping the rest are in the loft.
Others I had were Biker Mice From Mars and Power Rangers.
So have these things affected who I am today or were they purely incoincidental and situational?
Who knows? I don't, and nor does it seem do the 'experts'
