Saw a message from Missy to get my butt down to
the photo Op area because I was going to get my all time wish of seeing
Renee in that itty bitty BGSB and brown skirt PLUS staff. YES! Alrighty
now, this is special :) It was fabulous and for me who hates photos...I
made an exception for Ms Renee :) Felt like a little kid getting all
giddy.We then had Katherine Fugate who once again put
in a play about how we wanted the season finale to really be. Suprise
guest included Claudia Black, Crystal Chappell, Bridget Brannagh (Army
Wives), Tim and David and then the REAL surprise of the day...RENEE
playing..Gabrielle! LOL! Oh my gooness the room ERUPTED. I can't
describe into words other than to say...god help us on Sunday when Lucy
and Renee are on stage together. It's going to blow the roof off!
What was the play about? Gabrielle proposes to Xena :) Xena accepts of course.
ROC fans are currently looking forward to seeing Renee in her starring role as Maureen Wells in a dramatic feature film scheduled for release in 2012. Benjamin Dane, one of the film's producers and fellow TXer, has given his kind permission to use images from the yet to be released film and he is eager to see what the ROC fans on TX will do with the images from his film.

Hey folks, it's coming close to the convention and all the AUSXIP editing staff will be at the con - first time this has happened which is interesting. From Wednesday the site will be in skeleton staff mode. Updates will still occur but a bit later than normal.
This is going to be my last convention (whether Creation does another is up in the air judging by the poll they have on their site) It's going to be emotional and I'm packing the tissues. Let's all go out and have a great time, laugh and cry and then laugh some more. We are a family - sometimes a dysfunctional family but a family. The Xenaverse truly rocks and it's the best fandom I've ever been in or will be in.
RightO! I'm off on my annual holiday and this time I'm trekking across the pond to the US for a few weeks to catch up with mates, attend the 2012 Final Journey Xena Convention and just have a great time!
While I'm away, Lori will be taking over and updating AUSXIP and the rest of the sites. I'm looking forward to watching the Spartacus premiere (I'll have a review/preview of the first two episodes next week).
ALL the AUSXIP staff will be at the Xena Convention so I'll pop in by live blogging the convention with news, photos and other assorted goodies; you can follow this on AUSXIP or twitter and facebook. It's going to be mega fun and mega emotional.
Spartacus is going to be HUGE and the Xena Con will be INCREDIBLE!
