  1. Hello GALS, Thank you for providing this temporary thread to welcome the Angels. I have been working all weekend reformatting the forum at the request of many of my members. It is now complete for the Angels to visit. I will be sending out an announcement to all Angels in a few days (unfortunately I have to wait for my bulk email to be active again). In the meantime, please consider this an official announcement for all Angels to visit our new Angels Forum at this new link: http://z8.invisionfree.com/Angel_Haven/index.php? Just log on with your original username and password. Please pass this message along to other Angels too. Thank you.
  2. Hi Ballerina, Your Comic Con slideshow is great! It features the best photos taken of Gerry that day. Thanks for posting it.
  3. Hi Swansong, I’m so sorry I didn’t get to meet you in person too. I’ve always loved the way you write and if I had known you were there, I would have asked someone to point you out to me. heISmyGspot, thanks for having us. It feels so nice being part of the GB FANmily and I felt so welcomed. Songbird, your name suits you and I was so glad you introduced yourself. Susan~Sporran, please don’t feel bad you didn’t introduce us around. You were so busy that night and I hope you had a chance to relax and have some fun. You’ll be able to introduce us next year because we’d love to attend again! You GALS are so sweet to think I was a VIP (you should see me without my boufant hair) LOL! I actually brought my name tag but I forgot to put it on. I posted all my photos from the Gala on my site and I wanted to post these photos here because I feel it exemplifies what sisterhood and sister sites are all about. We had a wonderful time and my hubby and I are looking forward to next year’s convention. I consider your GB Conventions the closest thing GBA will have to one of its own and I am grateful to have attended such a fun and friendly event. Thanks for a great time! Hugs, Linda (GBA Site Administrator)
  4. Hello GALS! I'd like to thank Dayna and everyone involved in making the convention such a wonderful experience. My hubby and I had a great time in Vegas and celebrating at the Gala night. We arrived on Thursday at 6:30 pm. Our room wasn’t ready yet so we went to the pool area and listened to their entertainment. I phoned one of my members and asked her to meet us there. We met her and her daughter and went up to the hospitality suite to meet others and get info on the scheduled events. Sporran was there along with a few other GALS. By the time we got to check into our room it was time for a late night supper (we received complimentary meal passes since they were late with our room reservation). We met up with Fergie and another couple and visited during supper. Afterwards my hubby and I danced at the hotel lounge and watched a show featuring terrific female singers and dancers. The next day my hubby and I swam in the pool and relaxed in the spa. Later we walked the strip looking at the sights including an outdoor bar where the bartenders put on a show as they served drinks. It was like the movie, “Cocktail” with Tom Cruise. They had a great band playing 70's music, so we got up and danced. Afterwards we had crepes at the Paris Casino Hotel and sat ‘outdoors’ (it was actually inside but it resembled the Paris outdoor cafes). Then it was time to go back to our hotel & get dressed for the “Legends” concert show that featured Elvis and Tina Turner. When the show ended Wendy Kate called and invited us to join her and a few other GALS at the hotel lounge. We met them and danced the night away while a couple of “Trekkies”danced all night with Wendy Kate. On Saturday we rode the chartered bus to see the screening of “Phantom of the Opera”. It was not only wonderful seeing it on the big screen again but it was fun to sigh, clap and ‘woot’ with everyone (you can’t help but sigh when you see Gerry as the Phantom). I was especially excited for those who had never seen POTO on the big screen before. Afterwards Wendy Kate, my hubby and I ate lunch at the hotel. Then we met up with Fergie and we all went to the spa. Shortly afterward I left to get my hair done while my hubby got a massage. As we headed for the ballroom we could see a red carpet complete with sillouette Paparazzi figures flashing their cameras. I felt like a movie star and everyone looked so nice. It was funny how everyone called me “Audrey” (Hepburn). I was going for the “Natalie Wood” look and Dayna was the only one who knew to call me “Natalie” (Wood) - LOL! You felt like you were transported back to the Hollywood era with old movie posters on the walls, a stage looking like the Oscar ceremony, and vintage music playing throughout as people mingled and took their seats. The tables and chairs looked lovely in their black and white satin covers and the white flower arrangements and gold china plates added to the elegance. Even the programs were decorated with lovely satin paper. The meal was delicious and featured a stuffed cucumber salad followed by filet mignon, quiche and steamed vegetables and topped off with a chocolate mousse truffle dessert served with raspberry sauce. Ice tea and iced water were served and you could also purchase drinks at the bar. Everything was so elegant which was very befitting of the evening. It was great seeing a huge slideshow of Gerry pics throughout the night. Dayna's brother's video of breast cancer victims and survivors was very moving and touched all of us. A representative from the Susan B. Komen organization thanked us for contributing. It made me realize that while Gerry was whom the convention was named for, the real purpose was to help a very worthwhile charity organization. Dayna's speech about women empowering themselves and reminding them their true beauty laid within was very heartfelt and I was very impressed with the message of the convention. You could see how each lady there came away feeling better about themselves. There was a bond that everyone shared about being accepted for who they were and to celebrate themselves. That’s what true sisterhood is all about and showed throughout the night. We had a very nice surprise when the Neil Diamond impersonator performed for us. He looked and sounded just like Neil Diamond and is even appearing in an upcoming film. Actor Martin Delaney was such a nice treat too. He was extremely funny during the live auction, especially when it came to auctioning off Gerry’s jeans worn in the film “P.S. I Love You” and he assured us that Gerry went “commando” while wearing them. Martin was such a good sport when Dayna suggested he auction off his pants too. Congratulations to Fergie for winning the bid and having them personally delivered the next day (lucky girl!). Afterwards we danced the night away to the sounds of Greyeyegoddess and Abrock! Martin and his girlfriend even joined us in the line dance and I got to dance beside him. When it was over a few of us went up to the hospitality suite in our jammies and reminisced about the evening while Gerry films played on the DVD. We had a great time in Vegas which was topped off by a wonderful Gala night. It was a pleasure to meet some of you. Thanks Dayna and all the GALS who did an outstanding job and made the convention such a fun experience and worthwhile cause! Linda (GBA Site Administrator)
  5. Hi everybody, I was just talking about DJ requests with one of my members yesterday. It's great to see you have a thread started about this. I ditto many of the requests already made, especially Funk! May I also suggest some big band sounds, ie. Glenn Miller, since it is a Hollywood Vintage Ball. If any of you like to swing dance, please feel free to dance with my hubby (I don't know how to swing dance). I'm looking forward to 'getting down' with ya all at the Ball! :dance:
  6. Hi everybody, I had such a wonderful evening meeting some of you GALS and Jewels and partying with Dayna (Dr. Em)! It was so fun with 20 of us in a limo riding over to the Premiere! We checked in and walked on the Red Carpet and saw Zack Snyder being interviewed by the press. Some of the other ladies saw Ian Gruefold (sp?). Before the movie started I found out that I had 2 tickets to the After Party in my ticket envelope. I asked around but none of the other ladies had them. My hubby Mark suggested instead of him going, that I take Dayna. She has been so instrumental in helping me get in contact with Warner Brothers and I wanted to show my appreciation for everything she has done and how much GALS has been such a great sister site to GB Angels. The movie was great and there were lots of cheers and clapping during the movie and end credits. We saw Gerry walk out into the lobby after the movie and many people went up to him to congratulate him and take pics with him and sign autographs. I hung back because I knew I would be seeing him later at the After Party. Mark had to go to the bathroom, so I was standing near the Men's bathroom and didn't realize I was right next to Rodrigo Santoro who was talking with another gentlemen. I waited and then he looked and smiled at me so I shook his hand and congratulated him on a job well done. He smiled and said "Oh thank you very much." He is so incredibly handsome! Afterwards Dayna and I went to the After Party across the street at the Roosevelt Hotel. It was jammed packed and had two large rooms. We got our drinks and proceeded to mosy around looking for Gerry. Along the way we saw David Wenham who was engrossed in a conversation, so we didn't want to interrupt him. We found Gerry in a semi-private area. We waited just a few feet away for a few minutes. I was waiting for that opportune moment when we would make eye contact. We did a few times but someone would come up to him, so we waited until he was basically free. Finally when he was available we said hi and he said hello. He started to say how if he starts signing autographs, he would be stuck there for a while. I explained we weren't there for an autograph, we just wanted to say hi and we introduced ourselves as his Site Admin. He said, "Oh the ones I talked to on the phone?" and we said yes. He said, "Oh well then it's nice to meet you!" He asked which sites we were on and we told him. He proceeded to tell us how he appreciates all we do and how he doesn't usually check the sites out because he would be on the computer all the time, but he loves all the sites and what we do. Dayna told him how we all rode over together in the limo and he said he liked hearing that instead of hearing about the bickering. We told him that our sites love each other and I told him how I like Susan's (Sporran) word "FANmily". He smiled and said oh yeah. I then presented him with a CD our Angels recorded for him. I told him it was messages from some of his Angels, so instead of reading a bunch of letters, it was something he could listen to when he had time, like on an airplane. He said, "Oh that's great, thank you!" I said with a smile, "Oh I just wanted to let you know that you stole my purse at the Craig Ferguson show." Gerry looked horrified and took a step back and exclaimed, "I STOLE YOUR PURSE?!". I told him it was my Pug Purse and he took it thinking it was a gift but I had wanted him to autograph it. He said with his hand over his heart (like I'd given him a heart attack), "Ohhhhhhh F*ck ... I thought you meant I really stole your purse" and smiled. His publicist standing next to him started to explain that it was handed to him and he didn't steal it. I had to reassure her that I was just kidding. Gerry said with a smile, "My dog is acting like a surrogate mother and got ontop of the dog (purse) and tore it to shreds." (I think he was kidding). Anyhow, someone handed him a plate of food, so we said thank you and said our goodbyes. As we walked down the room we met Zack Snyder and I shook his hand and congratulated him and we told him how much we enjoyed his movie. He said, "Thank you so much!" "Oh this is my mom" as he introduced his mother to us. I said, "Hello Mrs. Snyder." I thought that was so sweet he brought his mom. Dayna and I had a great time talking, laughing and watching Gerry in action all night long mingling with people. I am so very happy for him and felt very blessed that I could share this evening with him. I had a great time with the ladies that went and I must say the food at the After Party was very good too!

  10. Hey GALS, I got my costume for our 300 ball! I was out shopping for a 'Christine' wig to wear to the POTO screening November 11 when I saw this outfit. I figured I should get it now before the Halloween shop is sold out and closes for the season. I tell you I haven't played dress ups this much since I was a kid - :: I can't wait! ~Sweetheart Angel~
  11. GBA Talent Contest ~ Singing ~ Artistic Angel Award Congratulations to Amber (Charmed Angel) for winning our Singing Contest!

  12. Hey GALS, I just returned from Vegas and found they also have "Thunder from Down Under", showcasing Australian male strippers! Talk about having something extra down under there ... HUBBA HUBBA!!! :: :tasty: ~Sweetheart Angel~
  13. Hey GALS, I just returned from Vegas and The Phantom of the Opera was spectacular!!! We absolutely loved it!!! My hubby even got teary-eyed at the end. A lady next to me who has seen the touring POTO said this was the best! The theater was gorgeous, the singing superb and the orchestra outstanding. I highly recommend it!!! :erikrose: :: Hey Swansong it will be so nice to finally meet you too. ~Sweetheart Angel~
  14. Hi Gals! I'm sorry I haven't replied to this thread sooner (I didn't realize there was one). Please feel free to choose ANY song from ANY musical. We had a POTO singing contest last time so I thought I'd open it up to all musicals to encompass a wider range of vocals. Songs from POTO are still welcome. Just a reminder the contest deadline is September 7th. Since it is a GBA talent contest you will need to email me first for membership and then I will send you the instructions and assign you an entry number (for impartial judging). Email: piemoo@hotmail.com From what I've heard so far, it should be a great contest. Thanks and good luck! ~Sweetheart Angel~ GBA Site Administrator
  15. Hey Sporran, Please count Mark and me for now (although it may end up just being me). We're going to LV this weekend and have tickets for Monday's show. I can't wait! :erikrose: :reddeathsword: :mopboyerik: :erikicon: September 15th can't come soon enough for me to register for the convention. Thanks alot for "spearheading" this ... (hmmmm... thoughts of Gerry just popped into my mind ) ~Sweetheart Angel~
