  1. I'll get it off asap, Cheryl, and anything else I can find that you can use.
  2. So disappointed that you won't be coming after all, Issy...I was excited when I saw your initial post that you were coming this year, darn! I was finally able to get my schedule figured out, and just barely got registered today, so I'll put together a couple of nice boxes or baskets with some fun stuff and bring them along with me, since I'm driving...is that all right, Cheryl? Yes that's totally fine to bring the items with you! Just hook up with myself or Susan once in Vegas Thank you so much!!! YES the TIFF MGP poster would be wonderful! Send on it on! Thank you for donating it Pat! Hugs, Cheryl
  3. I may sometimes be out of sight, but GB Gals is never out of mind :o)

  4. I have one of the TIFF posters from MGP I could donate. Would that work?
  5. I can't believe anyone in their right mind would actually threaten a man whose mere existence has instilled such love, compassion and humanitarianism more than anyone else on the face of the earth (my opinion). Yes, we don't all share the same opinions about religion and others' beliefs, but that's the beauty of diversity. The fact that some people have threatened Gerard Butler because he portrayed a biker-turned-born-again Christian seems to me that there was something else going on that we're not aware of...jealousy perhaps? If someone was really resentful about the subject matter, why haven't these people (or person) go after Rev. Childers? Why "shoot the messenger"? I know this may sound radical but I'd give my life to save Gerard, and I know many of you out there would, too. I feel protective of him and am angered that someone would add pressure to a man whose only intentions are to be good and honorable at what he does. Despite the fact that Gerard projected his usual confidence and relaxed demeanor while in Toronto, I sensed the stress of his outrageously ambitious schedule and saw the heavy emotions in his eyes while being interviewed on e-talk. It also answers the question as to why he chose to exit the back door of the POW after watching a film. When he got a look at the overly excited males that were standing at the front door with their "300" photos for him to sign, it didn't take a rocket scientist to make that snap decision to beat feet to the back door. My heart continues to go out to you, Gerard, and I will continue to keep you in my loving prayers, with some added protection to keep you safe.
  6. Hey Gals: I was at the event and GOT TO MEET "THE MAN" HIMSELF! I literally went into shock after my friend took my picture with him (I'll get it up as soon as I get it). Thank you, George Strombo, for helping to make it happen. I have waited so long to meet him, and the venue was just not conducive to conversation as there was a huge lineup of people wanting his attention. I can't begin to tell you how strong an effect this man has had on me, and how he has affected the lives of some of the people I work with at TIFF. The man is so charismatic that his mere presence in a room turns heads. The room electrifies with his energy. He exudes sexuality and confidence unlike anyone else I have ever encountered. I can't say enough about him so I'll stop blathering and go to bed now.
  7. You are MASTERFUL calendar creator, Veronica. Thank you for sharing your labor of love with us!
  8. Magnificent poster! Positively powerful! Can't wait to see this film! Love your siggy, Sara. Very appropriate for our man...
  9. Hi Moira: PattheGerrykat here from beautiful downtown Toronto. I have a HUGE question for you: I work @ TIFF as an usher (part-time) and it's sad to say that I had to find out from you and the GALS about the day MGP would screen and that it was a gala. I don't want you to divulge your source without getting into trouble but does he work for TIFF? Thanks, lassie! ;o>

  10. Hey new Gal, Meg: I live in Toronto but will be working throughout the festival until 6:00pm. Were you thinking of lunch or dinner? I'll be there with bells on if I can. I've never been to either place you suggested before but I'm game if it means finally meeting the GALS!!!
  11. Hey Stuart. This will be a good opportunity for us to finally meet, eh? I would like to talk with you beforehand about a project a good friend and I are working on, and I'd like your input. When are you in Toronto again, with some extra time to spare?
  12. Yes, indeed, becozy. I just came from the TIFF Press Conference and was absolutely THRILLED TO BITS that BOTH "Coriolanus" and "Machine Gun Preacher" will be screened at this year's Festival! I was totally beside myself when Cameron and Piers made the announcement! Woot! Woot! I can hardly stand it! Gerry will be here, in Toronto! For those of you planning to come here, let's keep in touch and make a point to MEET UP, okay? I have a studio apartment so if you don't mind sleeping on the floor (or we can get air mattresses), you're more than welcome to stay with me. I live 30 minutes away from the all the TIFF activity. Unfortunately, the exact dates and times won't be released until about mid August as not all the films have been selected as of today. Stay tuned, gals! My link
  13. Hey Gals: Good news! In case you haven't heard, TIFF has accepted "Coriolanus" for this year's Festival (September 8-17, 2011)!!!!! http://gerrybutlerspantry.aforumfree.com/t2778-coriolanus-accepted-for-tiff-release-date-is-dec-2nd I have a small studio apartment, but I could put some of you up if you don't mind sleeping on the floor! It's embarrassing to say I had to find out this information from a source other than TIFF.
  14. I wholeheartedly agree with everyone. This invitation is LONG OVERDUE! I'm so glad the AMPAS has finally recognized Gerry's magnificence on and off the camera.
  15. It sounds like this year's convention was yet another rousing success, as always. Wish I could have been there. I am proud to be a part of a group of fabulously organized and fun group such as GB Gals! I love you all for bringing us like-minded Juice Lovers together When my life ever settles down, I vow to absolutely, positively attend a future convention
  16. I am sincerely sorry that, once again, I cannot make it to the one place I would go IF I had the funds - and the time. I'm working two part-time jobs to make ends meet and want so much to meet each and every one off you to truly become part of the fold instead of vicariously through this great and valuable message board. Like Shirsan said, if "THE MAN' himself was going to be there, "to heck with money, health..."HECK, I'd walk, run and CRAWL to Vegas (yeah, I know it's like walking into an open furnace, 'cause I've been there. Alas, until my financial (and maybe geographic) and/or geographic situation changes, I'll have to once again live virtually through your live web-cast (are you doing that this year?) or through the meticulous reporting of you wonderful GALS. Sigh...have I played my violin too long? I LOVE you all. P.S. Any chance that those of us who don't go get to see the video submissions??? Dawne and I would be ever so grateful. Merci encore.
  17. I've been so out of touch with all of my wonderful GBGAL/PALS that I missed getting a tee shirt 'cause I can't afford to attend this year's convention---again!!! It's been a very tough year living on a part-time job and wondering whether I should stay here in Toronto, even though TIFF is right around the corner and I'm hoping OUR MAIN MAN will be there this year!!! I really, really wish I could be there. If there's any tee shirts left over (large), I'd love to buy one. Sorry, I goofed and didn't pay attention to the offer or the deadline BUT Gerry is ALWAYS in my heart and mind and...
  18. Yes, in Hawaii we do use the "hang loose" hand signal but, but in Gerry's case, his arm gestures are more a cross between "Hang Loose, Yo" and "I'll huff, and puff and...." well, you know the rest...heehee. The man's poetry in motion no matter what he's doing, sigh.
  19. Swannie! I'm so sorry I never responded to you!!! I owe you a response to what PNR authors are. Paranormal Romance (I think). They have a great thread on Amazon.com and considering you're a writer yourself, check them out and join the discussion. I hope you're well, sweetie. Hugs galore, PattheGerrykat

  20. Yo Gals! I sincerely apologize for having been absent for so long. Half the time I don't know what day it is! I just HAVE to weigh in here cause after living in Hawaii for 27 YEARS, Gerry decides to go AFTER I leave! Sigh, I'm glad he's learning how to paddle board, though. He looks like he picked it up real good. I'm glad to see you're talking about the draw string 'cause I have a photo of him in a similar black bathing suit that was taken a few years back where he was on a boat, and he was wet...I"m sure you remember that one cause it sure fit him real nice... On that gutterish note, thank you, GALS being YOU and for getting me through one of the toughest times in my life . I'll be updating my profile shortly...I'm a little behind, sorry..
  21. Really wish I could join you all and contribute to Sam Childress' good work, even though you'll be right next door (Ontario/New York State). Finances do not permit me to go anywhere further than where the subway will take me and I remember my last trip to NYC for SNL - the cheapest hotel I could find was $257.00/night! As always, I'll be with you (AND OUR GERRY) in spirit.
  22. Hey everyone! I'm just recuperating from working eleven straight days at the Toronto International Film Festival - sans Gerry... I was soooo hoping he would transport himself to Toronto but alas, SA isn't around the corner...sigh. Thank you for sharing the great article about Gerry's experience and influence on the people of South Africa. Gerry is unlike anyone else in the world, which is why we love him so much. This charismatic man has the power to move mountains just with a smile or that playful twinkle in his eye. The people of South Africa are indeed blessed with his presence. I only hope they let him go.
  23. Hi Swannie: Oops about the Admin tag. I thought because you have been with the group for awhile, and you're well-respected and loved, I assumed you were. My bad. I'm still green around the gills...lol. PNR, I'm not sure what the acronym means by it's a group of authors of paranormal, supernatural and romance novelists. Here's a link to check out:https://mail.goo

  24. I am definitely going to check out your book, Swannie. It's important for us to support our GALS admin, yes? Are you part of the Amazon.com discussion "A List of our Favorite PNR Authors"? If not, I'd highly suggest joining the gang. You'll get to connect with fellow-authors. Hugs!

  25. Swannie! Has anyone ever told you, or have you read, the book "Swan Song"? If not, you will love it! I just finished it for the second time, and it's over 800 pages! It's a page-turner and grips you from the get-go. Happy Saturday, Swannie, and thanks for all you do for us GALSs!!!
