As of next Monday the 6th of July, I'm going to be away for a few weeks. I got married earlier this year (way back in January in fact!) but since I'm a tourguide I couldn't get away in the high season, so the honeymoon has been put off till now.
Of course, in the next two weeks, the following things are bound to happen:
- Peter Jackson will get to ComicCon in San Diego, and will announce/confirm every major actor for The Hobbit,
- Guillermo del Toro will appear here in Wellington at next week's Unity Books autograph session, and will reveal all sorts of cool Hobbit plans,
- The Weta Cave will make a major announcement regarding the new plans for a Middle-earth museum "proper" in Miramar,
- Lots of cool people will come into town looking for me,
...and I won't be here.
Oh well, the honeymoon wins out, I'm afraid. My lovely bride, Aiko, and myself will disappear to a totally secret and undisclosed location (around Brisbane, Australia, actually) for a few weeks, and will be pretty much unreachable.
I may (or may not!) read my email a few times but I probably won't respond. :)
- Jack M.
PS - for those who are wondering - yes, the wedding rings were made by a VERY reputable company... although some of their products have been known to have been discarded in the nearest volcano... :)
