We’re walking through the hotel lobby when Akemi spots a floral arrangement and says: “I want to go over there and touch the soft and fluffy flower.”

“You can just go around touching flowers,”I said.

“Why not?”she said. “Jodelle said to do it.”

“And if Jodelle told you to jump in a lake, would you do it?”

She paused to think about it for a couple of seconds, and then fairly bursting with confidence: “A lake? I think I can do it!”

Now THAT is the unbridled enthusiasm I’m looking for heading into Friday night’s BIG tweet-storm!

Don’t miss this opportunity to make Stargate history.  Fans will never have a better chance to make an impact.  By sparing a mere hour of your time for our twitter campaign (Friday, March 9th – 6 pm PST/9 pm EST) you can save future Stargate!

Head on over to twitter and follow @StargateNow as we prepare to storm the castle!

More goodies from our buddy @confracto – the Time Squid!

Check out the teeth on this sucker.

Carl! Noooooooooo!

Touch it. Just touch it.

Back when people still wore fur coats I would walk up to complete strangers and ask if I could pet them. I was never turned down, not once. smile



LOL. Too funny Das.


Poor Carl. I hardly knew him. Actually, I didn’t know him at all, but still, poor Carl.


No, not Carl!!

Can’t wait for the tweet storm!


Aww Akemi you can touch the flowers!!


… And why ‘cant’ Akemi simply go around touching the pretty flowers??
I do it all the time, eh
and FYI
I jump in lakes whenever I darn well please, as well.
They’re especially nice and refreshing in Colorado.

@Tam Tweetstorm is on Friday.
I was just letting Joe know I’d have some original tweets loaded and scheduled into the que by tonight Just to ensure I’d still be there and help towards the U.S trending even if work prevents me from the full 1 hour of live participation.


How will you schedule without the hashtag? I’m working until 15 minutes after the tweetstorm has started & would love to schedule some tweets. I’ll join in as soon as I finish.

Cheers, Chev


Chev: Hashtag will release 15 minutes before the hour.
Why not just keep your phone open onto the two tabs for tweet deck and StargateNow and plan to excuse yourself for an ultra quick emergency restroom break?

It shouldn’t take but 60 seconds or less to copy and paste the hashtag onto the end of your scheduled tweets
and then get right back to work.


Sorry, I work on desk in a public library. That’s not practical for me.

Cheers, Chev


The lakes are cold there !!


Lee: Well, I guess that explains why I’ve never seen any of you Kansas City boys joining our Colorado ladies in our lakes in summer.

Albeit, we forest and mountain dwelling folk LOVE
our crisp refreshing lakes.XO

Bet I could get Akemi to join me! grin

A friend I met through SG fandom arrives Friday afternoon, so I hope to get her involved in the tweet campaign.


Akemi can touch the fluffy flowers.
I grow fluffy flowers. People don’t take much notice of flowers anymore…

A little cold for lake jumping just now, no? But I would touch puffy flowers all day!

Wonderful pictures! Yes, Akemi can touch the flower. She’s gorgeous, who would stop her?


Yikes, I forgot how well SG does creepy crawly. I prefer calamari on the plate, not in my nightmares. Akemi can touch and smell all the flowers. Unless it’s behind velvet rope at a botanical garden or a cranky neighbor with gardening gloves shoos you away.

add my vote to her touching the flowers! (Except as noted by shinyhuala!)

After nearly 3 months away, we are pretty much settled into our apartment in Haifa Israel. I just scanned 3 mos of blog entries… I am soooo behind. We had shippers from hell, the last thing being my computer which was fine when shipped arrived doa so I have a tower being put together, got the daughter a new laptop (My computer was 13 and her old laptop I am using is 10.), so soon will be fully back online.

I was shocked to learn last week about the SG Origins! We still don’t have our tv satellite or cable but hope to next week. We are so behind on everything.

Waves to all.


They don’t have frozen lakes in Japan, do they? If not, she might get hurt if she tries it in the winter!!


Please tell Akemi to choose her lakes wisely. Some are still very stiff.


That episode “Time” on SGU was like watching a horror movie but this one. actually turned out to be one of my favorites.
