The 2018 Con Season Begins

It has been far too long since I last posted here, so this is more of a catch up blog than speaking to anything specific. What were we doing? What were we wearing? What did we buy? The fourth Cornwall and Area Pop Event (CAPE) was held last weekend at the city’s Benson Centre. An […]

Notes From The Console – April 2017

Only six days to go before the Doctor makes his way onto our TV screens once again, and personally I am very excited. From the sound of things, Series 10 – which, sadly, is Peter Capaldi’s last – will offer a quality of storytelling that frankly should have been there for him in Series’ 8 […]

VIE-CAP: Coal Hill Convention 2016

A tweak of the chameleon circuit here, a reversal of the polarity there, and Ottawa TARDIS found herself in lovely and temperate Laconia, New Hampshire, for a langorous five days. Why all the adjectives? Well, first off, it’s New England, coming up on summer weather, and Dave + yours truly were in great need of […]

VIE-CAP: Ottawa ComicCon

In which the blogger falls even harder for actress Michelle Gomez; the blogger’s teenage daughter declares actor Arthur Darvill even hotter in person; and actress Karen Gillan photobombs a lineup of Daleks.   So how was your weekend? Mine was fantastic. I finally found a French Taunter Pop! Vinyl figure to complete my Monty Python […]

San Diego (Hey, That’s Where All The Kids Go)

This is a graphic depicting what is not my current location.

September […]

VIECAP: Ottawa ComicCon 2015

I’ve been attending Ottawa ComicCon since its inception in 2012, and an exhibitor/volunteer with The Doctor Who Society of Canada since 2013. Every year, ComicCon outdoes itself, whether it’s the calibre of guests they bring in, or the quality of the cosplays, or just the overall energy. I really don’t mind spending 99% of Mother’s […]

The Return Of The Whovian

Oh. Hello. The month of April passed by in a flash, didn’t it? Fear not, readers. Mama’s coming home, to tell you more stories and share more tidbits about this crazy con life. As for the lack of blog posts, I certainly didn’t want for material. Since the end of March, the Ottawa TARDIS has […]
