» Saturday, May 24, 2008Timegate, Day 2, Part 4
We've just come out of the team trivia contest. Only four were allowed to a team, so that meant we couldn't join the Skidmores and the Boroses, or Sue and her friends. Instead we teamed up with Aaron and Anne; we see Aaron regularly at these cons but didn't know Anne. She saved us on at least one question, and we ended up tying for first place with Sue's team. They won the tiebreaker, though, which was about how many seasons the television version of Highlander ran.
There was a hilarious bit right at the beginning: usually at Team Trivia contests, there is a musical selection while each answer is being cogitated and written down. So someone piped up during the first question that we needed to have some music and immediately the entire room started humming the Jeopardy theme!
Previously we had gone to the Torchwood panel, where we discussed the relative merits of each of the season two episodes. Rob Levy brought down the house when he tried to draw a timeline for the known life and times of Captain Jack Harkness, beginning with life in the 51st century through "had wacky adventures" to meeting the Doctor and becoming immortal to being buried alive and dug up and frozen...well, if you've seen the show, you know the drill. Quite hilarious.
Now we are back sitting in the lobby with the Kiernans and Phyllis, reading or writing on various electronic devices, except for Daniel, who has a good old-fashioned book.
I'm about to go back to my good old-fashioned book myself.
