The Eye Candy Diet - trinalin thinks things through — LiveJournal
The Eye Candy Diet
Several weeks ago, I started my Portion Control Project and I can say that things have been going smoothly (albeit slowly, but it's better that way, I think). Before the Gallifrey 2004 weekend, I'd lost 4lbs and I figured that during the course of the weekend, I'd gain those 4lbs back since I'd be doing no real exercise and would probably be eating a lot. But what happened instead was what I've decided to call the Eye Candy Diet...

The girls and I would get up in the morning and then go to Beeps or Denny's for breakfast. I'd eat a hearty meal (provided they brought me my food, but that's another story) and then we'd head back to the hotel to sit and watch panels or stand in line for autographs. But during the course of this panel-watching and autograph waiting, there was plenty of Eye Candy to feast upon. Not only was there Paul McGann, whom many at the con found to be very Eye Candy-ish, but I had me #1 drool-fest feller there as well, Sylvester McCoy. And hell, Janet Fielding's still very tasty, there's no denying that. (Check out my new icon for a lovely photo of the pair of 'em.) So I never got hungry during the day and we never went for lunch (didn't have time either). Eventually, we'd settle down enough to get a decent Japanese meal somewhere and that would be supper.

I weighed myself this morning after being on the Eye Candy Diet and sure enough, I'd dropped another pound! Woohoo! Let's hear it for Eye Candy!

I've been trying to remember more bits from various panels which I could report on here, so here's some that I thought of since my last post.

During the Sylv & Janet panel (while I've got this icon going) someone asked both who would they cast as the Doctor if they were producers for the new series. Janet balked (as she did with all "would you return to DW" style questions) and Sylv smiled widely and answered "Me!" Then he thought for a second and said "No, not me. I'd cast Janet," he said while pointing at her, "but then she'd decline and I'd cast me." :-)

When Janet kept complaining about the types of questions she was being asked (well, most of them were about whether she'd do a Big Finish audio, so I don't blame her) someone asked what sort of question would they wish the fans would ask them. "How much do you want me to make this check out to you?" was Sylv's answer. "Would you like a million dollars?" Janet agreed.

Hopefully I'll think of other moments later and can bore you with them as well. (I'm sure some of these things are a matter of "you should have been there!") I'm going back to work on photos. Of Eye Candy, of course!

I thought Sylvester looked really sharp at the con; the best I've seen him look in many years.

I agree - hard to believe the man is 60!

Sylv does look mighty sharp! =) no wonder you lost.. all that drooling!

What is Janet's problem with doing an audio? I"m obviously missing something. Or is it that she doesn't really want to to anything with DW anymore (in which case what was she doing at the con?)

*confusedly yours*

For her, Doctor Who is in her past and she doesn't want to look back. Now, as for why she's at the con - I'm sure part of it was to let folks know why she left and see her side of things. I never got the feeling that she hated Doctor Who or her time on the show, but that was then and this is now. And I'm sure a trip to LA and the money for the con was a factor in her being there. :-) (And she got the added bonus of hanging out with Paul McGann - she seemed to enjoy that.)

Me Too!

This diet absolutely works. I came home 1-2 lbs lighter. Amazing!

Sylv looked really good. It made me realize, watching the TVM tonight, how much weight he must have lost. He was getting quite chunky in '96. Now he looks *terrific*! (and I got a peck on the cheek from him ;-)

Re: Me Too!

Sweet! Glad the Eye Candy Diet worked for you as well. :-)

And yes, Sylv's been looking really good lately. He seems to cycle - At Visions '95 he was looking pretty bad (well, for Sylv), but by Visions '98 he looked much healthier (and thinner). But I'd say he's probably at his best at the moment. Probably all the live theatre that he's been doing. Keeps him young. ;-)
