FridayFix™: Hello from Siglerfest!

FridayFix sponsored by 1800petmeds.com/sigler

So, we’re at Siglerfest today, and it’s a grand ol’ time, as Sigler is fond of saying. We’ve got a ton of awesome Junkies, Pope Siglericus, super-creatives JC Hutchins, Mur Lafferty and Paul Cooley … plus Doctor Who. (That’s right kids, Doctor Who showed up to give me an assist with handling Siglerfest today. w00t!)
For today’s FridayFix™, we’re posting a quick hello to all y’all we’re missing. Oh, and a quick birthday shout-out.

Oh! And we’re having a contest. There are pint glasses up on the panel table, quickly being filled with ReesesPieces. Whoever has the most at day’s end wins. Here are the “contestants”:

  • Guestford_Junkie will be made a Masta Pimp for all her spam killing work.
  • del_detriment wants black leather pants for her character in HUNTER HUNTERSON & SONS. If she gets the most votes, she’ll get ‘em.
  • necol66 has been vocal about missing Siglerfest. We figured we’ll have him tangle with Kissyman if he wins.
  • Pulsar, our web master, has the Pulsar Rifle named after him in THE CRYPT. If he wins, we’ll have Kevin Capizzi render that rifle for all to see.

So, there you go. We’re going to soldier on without y’all, but we sure do wish you were here. Yes, all of you. Next year.

    Anyone remember seeing this guy?

    I knew I recognized him from somewhere. SiglerFest and Balticon attendees may remember seeing this guy lurking around.

    He is Ro-man, a Ro-man from the planet (yes, you guessed it!), Ro-man.

    Quyth Eye Color anecdote

     

    Here’s the anecdote that was mentioned at SiglerFest. It stemmed from a discussion about Quyth eye color, and how you need a chart to keep track of all the different Quyth moods:

    ==============

    For some silly reason, I picture a tourist to a Quyth world having a laminated set of cards, similar to the Fish identification cards you can take diving.

    Melvin: “Madge, there’s a big warrior coming this way, and he looks surly!”

    Madge: “What color is his eye?”

    Melvin (squinting): “It looks orange.”

    Madge, flipping through the stack: “According to this, he’s happy.”

    Melvin: “Whew.” (snaps photo)

    We’re glad to have such a lovely lass join the club!

    And I saw Big John already began altering the MP page in the Siglerpedia. I did a little more on it, but I expect it still needs the Gmorkian touch.

    we need a classified ad before the next SiglerFest

    Throw out some tasks that you need done and accept applications (just no drug tests; I’ve got a feeling 90% will be disqualified for Tuaca and crack related positives).  I’ve got a feeling your door will be broken down.

    We considered that one, but there are a couple reasons not to

    1. The more people that get involved in a project, the longer it takes to complete.
    2. We didn’t want anyone who made questions playing in the game. So John and I were both disqualified from Sigler Jeopardy.

    Most junkies left after Siglerfest ended. I had to resort to punching Cooley every time I saw him. :-)

    Dammit! There were of course rumors or naked jello wrestling… or maybe that was Frankie.

    Questions can be challenging

    but even “real” Jeopardy put clues in with the Answer. Plus coming up with character names (driver of the Margo Mobile, are you kidding me??) is pretty difficult if they aren’t a major character. I loved the category about the gruesome deaths, but maybe just have to know which book. the difficulty of the questions did make it more audience participation, at least!

  23. Beth_Ailis

    Legitimate activities?

    so there are illegitimate activities? which category would Hot Oil Twister fall into? Trust me, we can certainly come up with fun and games & only some would involved drinking heavily.

  26. athanas

    As do I:

    Don’t let John come up with the questions!! ;-)

    That was actually a great job, John.  Some of those questions were damn difficult, though I’m still kicking myself in the ass for forgetting Sonny McGuiness’s name.

    Well, if Junkies do indeed want a longer SiglerFest, they…..

    …..better start thinking of legitimate activities that could extend the fun.

    Yes, but you must admit it would have been a bit more….

  34. deltrimental

    Yeah, I heard on Twitter

    Thought I’d wait for the “official” notification before hurling any trash talk that might be brewing and whatnot forthwith.

    And, I believe,

     

    She was doing a keg stand while tweeting that.

    For breakfast.

    Madam, I know not of what you speak

    Maybe I’m waiting for some sort of “official” audio being posted before I move forward with any plans on certain subjects that I might be brewing and what not forthwith.

    Packing Lists…

    My sis posted my 6 year old niece Cally’s packing list for vacation on FB: toothbrush, family, to pray, best behavior, nice clothes

    I’m thinking our Kali’s list was a little different: toothbrush, thigh-high boots, party behavior, temp tatoos, short-short skirts…

    The names may be really close, but I think I’ll be able to tell them apart.

    I think they kept saying you had 7 shots…

     

    But I’m pretty sure it was 8. There was an early bonus shot that got forgotten, I think. I think that’s got to be some kind of Getting Pissed record, no?

    More, More, More!!

    The first Siglerfest is now but a memory (well, I do have a scrape on my elbow, not sure how that happened). I hope that the recordings come out nicely and get posted for those who missed it and those who might have some memory black-outs! Classic Getting Pissed episode with Athanas taking on the role of proxy drinker. Morning benediction by Pope Siglerius XXX needs to be a recurring event.

    Lots of time visiting with the other Junkies, A, and the FDO (and cousin Frankie). That was one of the best things, just hanging out with you guys. A big Thank you to Twowire, BetaClone and Coach for the lift from the airport and some great company! Also to Arioch – thanks for rescuing my phone! (I wasn’t in total panic mode, but was getting close). I think I still owe you a drink!

    For those of you who couldn’t be there, yes — you should be green with envy and make it your main goal of 2012 to get to Vegas for the next Siglerfest. (If we just keep demanding it, that means it will happen, right!!!)
    Thanks to A for working her ass off to make it a fantastic event, and of course to Scott for being, well, being himself (and a few other personas as well).

    Outstanding time!

    Siglerfest was really the highlight of this year for me Laughing

    Only problem was ….it was too short! A million thanks to A and Scott for putting together such an awesome time. And like BigJohn said, it definitely felt like a reunion of old friends rather than a first time meeting.  Many laments over those who couldn’t make it but hopefully between pictures and videos everyone took, we’ll be able to give you a flavor of the events.

    Can’t wait for the next one. Vicious rumors have already started about it being in Las VegasTongue out

  50. exotiKali

    I can’t wait!

    And I got so many compliments, I’m thinking of a permanent version.

    Such a great thing to finally meet these people who share such an interesting hobby. It didn’t feel like new introductions so much as a reunion. Let me see if I can remember everyone I got to meet:

    exotiKali and Phantom I already have met, so that was extra nice buttery creamy frosting.

    For the first time, I got to meet ARealGirl, Beth_Ailis, CB, Gmork, Wolf, JP, Kevinesque, paul_e_cooley, sadock, Scaleslea, ScottEPond, Shadygirl, SynapticJam, Twowire, Athanas, Voodoo, betaclone76, and…anyone else i may have forgotten.

    What a blast. Hope everyone gets home safe and without incident. See you all again next year!

    SIGLERFEST !!!!!!!!!

    Junkie Con was a fantastic success!!! To those of you who made it there, thank you for a wonderful time. I had a blast meeting every single one of you. You guys made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. (And, no, it wasn’t the booze) Thank you.

    For those Junkies who were on the MIA list, you were not forgotten. Several glasses were raised in your honor. You were sorely missed.

    The only downer about the whole event were the goodbyes. I miss you guys already.

    and I would like to say ‘Thank You’ to A for my contestant nomination!

    I’m sure, as a Scotsman, I could kick Kissyman’s ass… although there’s a chance he could take me if, and it’s a big IF, he could prevent me from using my martial arts skills!

    Seriously though – I hope you are all getting heady with the aroma that is Siglerism! Enjoy the Fest!
