Why I'm going to Ring Con

Hey Cat ... ich bin da wenn du deinen Vortrag hälst, versprochen! Und vielleicht laufen wir uns ja auch mal so über den Weg!

I was sure, I wouldn't go to Ring Con this year because it isn't the Ring Con I loved for years any longer. It started seven years ago and it was all about Lord of the Rings. It was great to meet other people who loved the same things like me. Never before I was going to a Convention, I'm not the type for this - but I fall in love with the atmosphere.

Over the years things changed. 2006 was my personal highlight - to meet Sean Astin, to see him ( at last together with his girls) on stage, this was unbelievable and ... it was the reason that I finally ended here in a Life Journal. Thank you, Sean!

Well, I admit, I still love Lord of the rings and Sean Astin is still a great actor and a wonderful man for me ... but things changed. Also Ring Con changed. It's not about LotR any longer, other Fandoms like Pirates, Harry Potter and Twilight are part of the Ring Con now. A lot of "old" fans and friends are not coming any longer and last year was the first I don't go to Ring Con though I missed it a bit.

And this year ... well, all about Twilight and Vampires, it's not mine and I didn't wanted to go. But last weekend a friend was visiting me. She is going to Ring Con and we talked a lot about it and ... well ...

to make a long story short.

We talked about "Blood ties" and Kyle Schmid too ( he and Dylan Neal are coming to Con this year) Hm ... Kyle is really cute and I said, maybe I would come to Con too if someone could promise me a Kyle shirtless :) ... Yeah ... that was it: she promised me to ask him in his panel to pull his shirt off ... urgh ...

How could I resist this offer? :) (O my god, what have I done ??? )

Well, all I want to say: I will be at Ring Con from Friday to Monday .. and I know I will miss all of you ( and my boys - wouldn't it be great to have a Casey on Con ??? dream on, Prisca ) sooo much ...
