Holy crap do I have a lot of crap! I mean stuff. Well, stuff and crap. It’s a fine line. I spent much of today going through my office, throwing away paperwork I’ll never need again and filing away paperwork I may – just maybe – need some time in the distant future. While skyping with my buddy Alex the other day, he advised me to throw away anything I haven’t used in a year. Hmmm. On the surface, it seems like a good rule of thumb. I mean, I’ve got boxes sitting in my crawlspace that I haven’t opened since I moved into this house – back in 2004! Still, just because I haven’t needed it in eight years doesn’t necessarily mean I eventually won’t. Alex was quick to concede the point, recalling a stack of script notes he discovered and subsequently threw out since it was from a project that had moved on without him a year earlier – only to be contacted days later and told they wanted him back and could he resume his work?
Anyway, a few of the things I came across during my late spring/midsummer cleaning:
Oh, I know. The first thing that crosses your mind is “Stalker Alert!”, but I assure you these aren’t mine. They were actually left behind by our former Stargate script coordinator (and, before that, former producer’s assistant) Lawren Bancroft-Wilson whose job it was to coordinate the signing of posters, team pics and, evidently, dreamy photos of a young RDA. Either that or HE’S your stalker!
Hey hey! Check it out.
Heeey. I remember this script. I’ll share in more detail when our trip down Stargate: Atlantis memory line takes us to the end of season 5. Oooh, in fact lots of interesting tidbits to discuss around that time.
Sadly, that was more or less it. No zat guns. No kino. No puddle jumper. Though, in all fairness, I’ve yet to do a thorough search of that crawlspace.

Use this one to visit the ruins of the Icarus Base, or get into Homeworld Command where you can use the communication stones to check out Destiny and give Eli a break from figuring out how he can get one of the damaged stasis pods working again.
Or use this one to visit Stargate Command and see how the old gang is doing. Maybe join Sam, Cam, Daniel, Teal’c, and Vala on an off-world adventure. Say hello to General Landry. Steal Walter Harriman’s lunch.
