Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Took me a while to find this thread! But here I am!

My name is Jacqueline, 21 year old, Dutch Star trek geek.

Been a fan since 2005, back then I was hooked on the Voyager series, went to a couple of conventions, met Kate Mulgrew, Garett Wang and Robert Picardo at some point =P Actually, I unintentionally ran into Robert Picardo at three different conventions, that guy goes to a lot of them 0.0.. I've noticed he loves Opera.. I'm not too big on him though, no offense. I used to be somewhat of a Kate Mulgrew fan. I still like her, just a whole lot less than I used to. And I don't really understand why they had to kill her off in the book series, was that really necessary? OK, I will stop ranting now..

Only recently got into the TNG series, and yeah I'm pretty much hooked again! Planning on going to FedCon with a couple friends in May, and well that's pretty much it.

So.. What's up?

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

G'day All, I've been lurking for a while, creepy, I know! I write a bit (P/C) my name is Heather Smyth. I'm an Aussie and completely obssessed with Patrick Stewart! Last Jan he gave me a kiss and a cuddle and yeah, I'm still floating somewhere near the ceiling! Happy to be here, many thanks to those responsible in keeping everything up and running.

Hey Shire55!

Okay, I'm a bit jealous now.

I wondered whether I should inform you of this Satyrquaze but it appears you found it yourself.....

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Hi All, I met Patrick at two conventions he did in the last weekend of Jan, 2010. I am a member of the PSN (the Patrick Stewart Network) and through them he found out that my husband and I had lost our home and everything we owned in the 2009 "Black Saturday" bush fires here in Aust. He, being such a kind, caring and compassionate man, let the club officers know that should I attend the cons (one in Melbourne on Sat, the other in Sydney the following day), he would like to meet me. I attended both and on each occasion we met, had private photos taken which he personalised for me and yes, I received the kiss and cuddle! Really, he is such a terrific bloke. The first anniversary of the fires (which killed over 200) was the next weekend and his kindness made what was a very difficult time bearable. So I owe him a great deal.
Heather.

Aww, that's a cool and heart-warming story. You certainly deserved it, having lost your home. Has it been rebuilt, yet?

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Hi, Count Zero, no, we didn't rebuild in Kinglake, our home town of 30 years. We just couldn't face it. That terrible, terrible afternoon and night 42 people died in our town, many of them dear friends of ours. Some, young people we'd known since birth. We now live in another town, about 32 kms away. On a happier note, let me tell you more about what Patrick did for me. On the Sunday, after I'd met him the second time and yes, I received the fabulous kiss and cuddle, he asked me to write down my name and address. I wondered why, but then again he could've asked me to hack off my left foot with a nail file and I would've happily complied! LOL Anyway, about 3 weeks after the cons, a very big postal tube arrived and I immediately recognised Patrick's handwriting. Yes, he'd addressed it himself. Inside were 9, never-before released, full colour posters of Patrick, all signed! Needless to say, I was delighted! But...about 2 weeks after that, I recieved a notification from the post office that there was a big parcel for me, too big to deliver. So off I went and yes, again there was his handwriting on this enormous box. It was so big I had to get my husband to help me get it into the house! Inside was an absolute treasure trove of the most astonishing personal items from Patrick, ALL signed. He knew that along with everything else we'd lost, all my extensive memorabillia (TNG and Patrick), collected over many, many years had been destroyed so that dear, dear man had sent me these fabulous things as a way of helping me begin again. The thing is, this stuff was so good! Of course he knew I'd never sell it, not one item will EVER appear on ebay, and some of the things are so personal and important I'm not going to disclose what they are simply because they mean too much to me and I think it's kind of between him and me, but when I said I owed him a great deal, that's kinds of a HUGE understatement! Sometimes, when the nightmares come, or the PTSD gets bad, I read the lovely letter he wrote that came with the box of treasure and it picks me up. What can I say? When it comes to Sir Patrick Stewart, I'm a done deal, but honestly, can you blame me? He is a decent, kind and caring man and I wish him every happiness. I wote to him to thank him and I did try not to gush, but how can one adequately express such gratitude? Sometimes words just aren't enough.
Heather.
