It's all true. There was a play at Worldcon called 'Lucas Back In Anger' that managed to cram all six Star Wars movies into about two hours of insanity.

They did the first Star Wars trilogy (chronologically second, original, yadda yadda) in a condensed version that starred a Dalek as R2D2, a Cyberman as C3PO and Darth Vader as Luke Skywalker's mother. In fishnets.

Then they did the second trilogy as an Abba musical. My favorite was the SW version of 'Money, Money, Money' that contained the rhyme 'Obi-Wan Kenobi/In his robey'.

And I still have the kazoo.

I'm not going to do a long coherent Worldcon report because the very thought makes me want to fall over, but luckily [livejournal.com profile] naominovik and [livejournal.com profile] marthawells already did theirs, yay!

Instead, I have ... pictures! And non-chronological natter. No people in the pics, except for the Goa'uld and his girlfriend, because I swore not to post any, and would really prefer not having any pictures of me being posted either, so there you go.

Am home! Fantastic Worldcon, fantastic weather (in Scotland, yet), and I still have such a grin on my face from meeting [livejournal.com profile] marthawells and [livejournal.com profile] flambeau and [livejournal.com profile] naominovik, which was even more fun than I thought it would be. I am storing this feeling up and bottling it for when everyone is at Vividcon. Because I HAVE BEEN TO WORLDCON YAY.

Coherence later. Food and unpacking now. Eee! I have a purple ghidra in my suitcase. Also, a makuro-kurosuke and Michael Hurst DVDs. And Texan hot sauce. And books and filk CDs and a Worldcon T-shirt and pictures I need to upload and a bracelet by [livejournal.com profile] elisem with ghostly ladybugs in and a box of Highland fudge. I must have had a good time, don't you think?
