Gabaldon in a Minute

Presented by

JaniceM & SharonB 

Recap by Charyl

One of the most hosed moments during Surrey 2000, occurred during the Thursday Night Gathering with Diana Gabaldon. Clan MacHoser was treated to a very hosed reading of the very hosed Gabaldon in a Minute written by the very hosed Lady Belinda. The readers were JaniceM and SharonB, oh yeah, and they are very hosed, too.  These two lassies performed with such style that the hosers in attendance were in stitches.

First Janice reads, we laugh, then Sharon reads, we laugh. It’s a real hoot.  Finally we get to this part of Voyager which Sharon is reading:

Abduction of Claire/fever, illness/woman overboard/pirates/man overboard /yummy turtle soup/OUCH Claire's arm is soaked in best brandy. Alcoholic haze... Mmmmmphm. Major storm, OUCH: Claire has broken leg.

Sharon stumbled over the broken leg bit and then paused, and began questioning which of Claire’s limbs was actually injured, insisting that no, it was Claire’s arm that was broken not her leg. Sharon and Janice began a short and very amusing conversation that went something like: Wasn’t it her arm? No it was her leg, when she fell overboard. No, no, I’m sure she broke her arm . . . All the while Diana, who was sitting just next to and below Sharon, was nodding her head and saying, “it was her leg. Yes her leg.” I wonder if Diana felt like the invisible woman as more hosers became involved in the conversation. Finally it dawned on everyone that the trivia master of the books was right there to ask and many heads turned toward Diana.  It was amusing as we realized that we had  gotten so caught up in Janice and Sharon’s engaging conversation that we were oblivious to Herself who had actually answered right away *g*. I wonder how many times Diana said “It’s the leg.”

Sharon and Janice put on quite a show that night. I wish I could have recorded their performance. They play off each other in a very natural way, and it is a hoot to watch and listen to them. I’m smiling right now as I recall the evening.

 Ahhhhhh. . . . Lallybroch sure is a wonderful place!
