In case you haven’t seen it, it appears Warner Brothers, the studio behind The Hobbit films, has booked the big hall, Hall H, at Comic-Con for three hours on Saturday, July 14. I’m guessing it will start at 10 a.m., the time the event typically opens, I am told. God forbid they make all the fervent fans wait any longer.
Of course, I want, I dream, I hope to see this bloke:
I can never get enough of the images from that press conference. Intelligent, articulate, thoughtful men who also look like that? Whoaaaaa.
But I am also very much looking forward to seeing this fellow, too:
My favorite movie director. I’ve got a bit of a crush on Sir Peter and his brilliant, sweet, disheveled, adorable self.
Getting to go behind the scenes via PJ’s video blogs–and there’s still one to go!–has made me all the more intrigued about the process of making films. I genuinely hope to make my time at Comic-Con a learning experience as well as just plain fun (although I should say I subscribe to the notion learning can be fun). And of course, I hope to represent Armitage World in my own small way.
And to take lots of pictures. I think there will be plenty to attract my attention. It’s going to be quite an adventure . . .

Asilomar creates these necklaces, made to order in the length you request.
The lovely Asilomar, fellow RA fan and Comic-Con attendee, graciously offered to help me with another Comic-Con Trip fundraiser. In her free time, she makes some beautiful sterling silver jewelry which sells at Etsy, Amazon and Artfire. One of the most popular pieces is the Heart with Wings necklace pictured above.
Here’s her description of it:
A heart with wings represents a joyful, optimistic, and free spirit. Often, love is said to make the heart take wing. This petite charm has a lot of detail in a small package. It makes a great gift for the free spirit in your life.
Sterling silver winged heart pendant is just half an inch tall and less than 1.2 inches wide (30x15mm).
Fine cable chain is wire-wrapped to the springring clasp for greater security. Sized at 16 inches (41cm). If you would like another length, either shorter or longer, just send a convo with your request.
The necklaces are selling for a discounted price of $35 for this fundraiser and Asilomar makes each one to order.
She is sharing a generous portion of the sales with me to help pay my way to San Diego to serve as a reporter for Comic-Con and the opportunity to see the fabulous Richard Armitage
as a panelist for The Hobbit.
If you are interested in ordering one or more of these lovely necklaces for yourself or fellow free spirits, please send me your shipping address and specify a length. Payment should be made through the donate button for PayPal posted in the sidebar; please be sure and let me know the donation is for a necklace (s). Allow five business days for shipping.
Contact me with your info at angieDOTlongATcenturytelDOTnet.
Many thanks to Asilomar for coming up with this idea as a way to help me raise the funds I need! She’s a peach!
Of course, donations of any size are appreciated. And thanks again for everyone’s support!
