Gallifrey One: Friday

I’ve been a sci-fi fan for most of my life. I’m not sure when I fell in love with the genre, but I know by the time I was in high school and with a driver’s license, I was driving my friends to sci-fi conventions in and around Los Angeles.

Today was the first time I attended a sci-fi convention dedicated to Doctor Who. Gallifrey One.

It’s a small convention in the Marriott next to LAX with attendance is capped to around 3,000 people. From what I can tell, it’s a really well run con. There wasn’t a moment where I felt like I was being ignored or mistreated. I like it a lot.

Things I purchased that I didn’t need: a book completely unrelated to Doctor Who, Sherlock Series 1 soundtrack, Arthur Darvill’s autograph.

On a side note, I forgot to ask Arthur Darvill if he was going to be in the West End production of Once when I was getting his autograph. Oops.

Twilight the Rabbit

After the passing of Sen, I noticed that Hoji was not as active as before. I let him mourn the loss of his friend, but after several weeks I decided that he needed a new friend.

In comes Twilight. I adopted her from PetSave Foundation in Hawthorne in early January. She’s a black rabbit with strands of white poking out here and there, much like Hoji. The only difference is that Hoji has a sleeker coat and Twilight is bigger with scar on her nose.

She’s cute, but she really hates Hoji. Every time attempt at bonding them, she starts a fight. In the beginning, Hoji wanted to be friends (at least that’s what it looked like to me), but now I’m pretty sure he’s ready to fight.
