    Nice ear muffs. Might I suggest eating lots of red meat, sitting about in your under crackers, leering at young ladies and firing a heavy calibre weapon. It should help wash the taint of pink from your mind.

    Sweet! Though I’m afraid that pink is not the right colour for you.

    I think this picture represents “Pat, giddy as a school girl.” Btw, the one who took that shot must have been bouldering with laughter by the looks of it. (Unclear and sfuffs)

    I think you should’ve shown up to the Decatur Book Festival in that. I’m sure the 40+ age bracket would’ve loved it.

    hey, it was great to meet you . . . the panel with you and Peter was probably the highlight of my weekend (and on a weekend that includes DragonCon, that’s saying something!!!) -ad

    The blurry composition of the photo gives it a nice mystic fantasy aura. The photographer did a nice job.

    Okay, that picture pretty much shatters any last perceptions I might have had about you being… academic.And makes me wish I could go to conventions now and again. Hrm.

    Kip: Thanks for that. The thought of Pink Pat as a Pokemon is pretty hilarious.

    It was awesome to meet you at Dragon Con. The beard is indeed as awesome as it seems in pictures. Thanks for taking the time out to talk to me on Monday.Oh, I forgot to tell you: Red Dwarf is indeed on its way back. Robert Llewellyn revealed that an hour-long special is under works to pick up after season 8 (with the same actors) and additional Red Dwarf is forthcoming afterward, too. (That’s the nice thing about DragonCon. You can find out the best info!)
