Okay. So if you notice the last date on my blog, it says March 14. To me that means I’ve been a bit lamesauce with trying to keep us all up to date with what work/play-related hijinks I’ve been up to the past two months. Two months my friends. What kind of regularity is that?! Given, I didn’t actually make myself promise how often I would be writing in this self-promotional website of mine (ah excellent, past Nat is taking future Nat’s “spontaneity” into account…yes) but I deserve a slap in the hand for cheating myself here.
That aside, I’ve been excited to write about ONE of my most recent projects that just got a little cooler a couple of weekends ago. Essentially a dream opportunity for a) a girl aspiring to do more on-air hosting and b) a Battlestar Galactica geek like me:)
What that translated into was Matt and I on camera ALL of Saturday and ALL of Sunday, rifling through some of the most memorable, frightening, emotional and epic set and prop pieces from a series TIME magazine called “one of the greatest shows on television.”
Honestly, it was insane getting to see and talk about the resurrection tub we saw SO many Sixes and Eights emerge naked from. Or Gaeta’s artificial leg piece! Or that exact FTL control we saw in the show’s finale where Starbuck typed in the final coordinates to Earth.
And of course, we couldn’t get away from the event without taking away our OWN piece of Battlestar Galactica history - Matt won Baltar’s “dream sequence” chaise for $400! Can’t WAIT for that to get to Toronto!
Needless to say, the LIVE hosting experience was an awesome rush. As much as I’ve done reporting or hosting or interviewing in the past, I had never done anything LIVE before. Although I was a little anxious about it, as soon as the camera began rolling, it was SMOOTH sailing from there. I would definitely do that again.
I would love to share some clips from the auction with you, but the network hasn’t posted it yet. So in the interim, here’s a video from Matt’s blog to give you a bit of a taste of what the auction was like:) And yes…there were hijinks;)
