Ladies and Gentlemen...

Hola! Nazdar! Buenos Dias, and Aloha Stargate fans. How ya doing?
It's going on late and I've left the actual writing of the blog for last. So now I have to think of something to say.
It's been a banner year for Zelenkistas the world over. No fewer than FOUR, count 'em FOUR convention appearances in the last few months - from Auckland, New Zealand to Springfield, Massachusetts - it's been a whirlwind of fine sci-fi FAN-INSANITY the likes of which will have many generations to come still speaking of it in hushed tones.
I got teddy bears, Tim Tams and Vegemite (of course), embroidery, books, and CD's, letters, artwork, t-shirts, pints of Toohey's and Sam Adams, buttons, pins, postcards, apparel (don't ask), Maori carvings, beads, and more...
Thank you all!
I may still go somewhere in February, depending on availability and opportunity - before filming of season, gulp, FOUR begins in February.
It's good to be picked up for another year, and I hope to be a part of it. Let's see how it goes!!!

Hi David!
Greetings from Brno, Czech Republic! :)
I stumbled upon your blog accidentally and you have no idea how happy it made me! :)
It's amazing to hear Zelenka will be in season 4 as well (I can't believe how time goes by so quickly) and I'm looking forward to your scenes, because they always make me laugh. My friends always ask me to translate what Zelenka said. :)
I'll be looking forward to hearing from you soon. Take care!

Veselé Vánoce a Šťastný nový rok!

pega said...

Wow! Look who's blogging now!

It was lovely seeing you at UFC, and here's to hoping for more fantardery at Dragon*con and UFC again in '07.

Luck with season 4, and have a Happy Holiday season!


M said...

Hi David!

Glad to hear you've started a blog.

And embroidery???

But I see you appreciate decent Aussie bear and quite a few.

Well, merry xmas and a happy new year :)

Suz said...

Hi David!

Glad to see you've started blogging!! :D

Greetings from Scotland!

Good luck with season four...can't wait!

Audrey said...

Nice to see you've gotten your own blog--we'll look forward to updates! Hoping to be able to catch you at Dragon*Con or another US con in 07.... Best of luck with season 4, and fingers crossed for lots of great Zelenka moments!

There's a secret to blogging, really - just assume that everyone else is as fascinated by your life as you are. This may sound a bit egotistical. Come to think of it, it is. But it is the principle on which blogging is based.

Wallow in it.

Merry Christmas, Mele Kelikemaka, Vesele Vanoce, Feliz Navidad, and Joyuex Noel!


Erynn said...

Hi David -- glad to see you've updated a bit, and I'm glad you had such a good time at the cons. I couldn't make it to Springfield with Spubba and the crew, but I grew up near there.

Good luck and happy holidays!

Happy holidays and a happy new year too!


Jay said...

Hallo, Nykl! Glad to see you finally in the blogosphere! VIVA KLUB ZELENKA!

Ange said...

Kia ora, David! The fantardery continues, heh. Thanks once again for coming down to see us in Auckland in October, it was a truly wonderful weekend, and we were so tickled you liked the tshirts. It truly was worth the speeding fine! And, if you're looking for somewhere to visit, I hear the weather here in February is gorgeous.

Look forward to hearing from you again soon, and have a happy Christmas!

faith-chan said...

Good to see yer gonna try an attempt the terror that is blogging, cuz ya know we love to hear from you. ^_^

For the umpteenth time, it was so wonderful to see you at UFC, and I hope you hit up more northeast conventions in the future! *cough*i-con*cough*

Good luck with season 4, and hopefully many more, if the Zelenkistas have our way.

Denise said...

Greetings, salutations, and pleasantries from New York! And welcome to the world of blogging. Did Hewlett talk you into it?

It would be great to see you in London in February if circumstances allow.

Welcome again and I'll be looking forward to updates!

Toni said...

Hi there! I see the lure of the blog has sucked yet another SGA cast member in. Welcome, and we look forward to updates!

Happy Holidays!

It's an epidemic of blogging! Glad you decided to do it.

I look forward to reading more from you. :)

Tammy Mc said...

Ah, yet another blog to feed my addiction to SGA, and I couldn't think of a better person to have it. :)
Welcome to the blogger world. I am looking forward to season 4 of SGA and I am happy that you will still be around.

Aurora said...

Hi David,

*waves from New Hampshire, USA*

I very happy to see you decided to start a blog. I will most definitely read it. I look forward to all the stories you have to tell.

Maria said...

Hey David,

Yep I'm a little late to the party. That's considered cool in some circles. Really, really, really, really hope to see you in February.

Happy holidays and good luck with series 4.

Spubba said...

I vote for you coming back to United Fan Con, myself. Loved seeing you there in Massachusetts and wouldn't mind doing that one again.

Just adding my tiny voice to the uproar...

Icie said...

Aaaahoj ;)

Oooh, so you have a blog now, that's great :) Hope you write lots ;)

and hope to see lots of Zelenka soon :) Good luck with everything.

Icie (from Slovakia)

P.S. And come to Slovakia sometimes ;)

valderys said...

Oh, can I get excited about February? About a certain con, that I don't want to name in case it jinxes it? Are you coming to the UK? Pleeease do think about it! *whimpers*

Dr Z said...

I AM thinking about the UK in February actually. It all depends on how the people that make these things happen will make this thing happen.
Fear not, Valiant Britannia, I'll be there soon enough...

Gemma said...

I AM thinking about the UK in February actually.


Rosehawk said...

Wow, this is so cool.

Thanks so much for indulging your fans by reaching out to them. This is great! I can honestly say that I have never had so much fun with a TV character and your blog just makes it so much better.

Maybe someday you can do a con in the Midwest!

By the way, I am assuming that Hugo is the name of your boat? Is it a big boat or a little boat?

valderys said...

Be still my beating heart. Actually, with you and t'other David too, it might actually be still. I may, in fact, be gasping like an unattractive fish and dying from the squee :)

Come on over, the water's lovely. Or not - in February. But you know what I mean. Oh god. I'm incoherent with joy.

You've listed all the things you've been given by fans - obviously so we don't duplicate :) Any requests? A wish list! Go on - it is Christmas (it'll just be a little fashionably late this year)

(By the way, this news is the best Christmas present - you know that right?) *twirls*

alfirin_kirinki said...

Hey David,

I hope that that February Somewhere is London's Pegasus Two. I was a Steward when you came to your last WOLF con in London and you guys all made it a really brilliant weekend.

It'd be really cool to catch you again! McKay and Zelenka on the same stage... that has to be worth the ticket, as well...

Have a great Yule! Hope to see you in the new year... *nudge nudge*


Tazmy said...

Hey, glad to see you blogging. Zelenka adds such a wonderful flare to Atlantis and I love your acting.

Also anxious for season four! I hope you will be in it and I also hope there will be many mroe seasons to come.

Desiree said...

Hi David!! A friend told me about your blog and I'm so glad she did!

I don't know if you remember this or not but at UFC this year, you were asked to record a video message to a woman named Desiree who couldn't be at the con. That's me. :) Thank you so much for taking the time to record that message! It meant the world to me!! (Considering I'd planned on coming up to UFC but because of a severe back injury, I can't travel that far. I'm in South Carolina.)

Anyway, I was wondering if there's any chance you could come to DragonCon down in Atlanta the first weekend in September, 2007. I'm on the Stargate track staff and we would LOVE to have you come to the con!! :) This year, 2006, was a ROUSING success...just ask Torri and Rachel and Kavan.

Anyway, thank you again for recording the video message. I watch it daily. :) And we'd LOVE to see you at DragonCon! :)

(Way down south in SC...)

Jennifer said...

Hi, David! :)

It's so good to see you join the blogging world. Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to come and share with us. I love the way the actors on the two Stargates have made it a point to connect with their fans.

Like Desi, I do hope that you come and join us in D*Con. :D We'd love it if you were there. We wanted you in you gotta come in 2007!! It's a fantastic convention. 2006 was my first, and out of some 20 or so cons I've been to over the years, it is among my top favorites.

Red Phoniex said...

Hi David. If the feb thing is Wolf Pegasus 2....COME!!!!!!!! It would be brilliant if you could come, i know we would love to see you there.

sithdragn said...

Hi David!

Welcome to the land o'blogs. It's addictive, be careful!

I'd love to see you at a con in Chicago -- something different than what you've already done, so that we folk who couldn't make the others can have a chance to meet ya!

Mary said...

February? Do you mean Wolf Events: Pegasus 2?

Please come to Peg2 :)

Nazdar David!!
I'm from Slovakia. We really like you here. You're my favourite actor in Atlantis because of your great czech speeches like for example zaplať panbúh or doprdele to je nahovno in grace under pressure.

I'm looking forward to seeing you in season 4.
