I went to Comic-Con! er, sort of?  
I went to San Diego! I have now met and hung out with the lovely and talented frolicndetour and nicole_anell. Yay!

nicole_anell was actually AT con and I'm sure will have many interesting things to say about what she saw in her report. But all I can tell you is:

a. It's crowded. Even on the outside.

b. Little kids look cute dressed up as anything. I should have taken a picture of the Wee!Thor (since it reminded me of someone else's Baby Thor.... *g* ).

c. SOMEONE WAS STABBED! IN THE EYE!

or, not quite, but it was an awesome story. It made the paper and everything. Seat dispute gone wrong. (clearing between panels in the future? I think so, after this.)

But despite our half-hearted attempt at nerdery dork-dom geekery by not attending the con, I'm pretty sure frolicndetour and I made up for it with fangirl discussions. I showed off my loot collection and we jointly decided that our guilt over our unfinished help_haiti projects is destroying our souls, and we really should do something, asap.

I might have also overshared my kidlet-inspired animal knowledge when we went to the zoo. Random trivia on polar bears, I HAS IT! FYI: six year old humans and two-year-old gorillas are EXACTLY THE SAME. (and omg so cute)

Speaking of, she's also the only one of you fannish friends to have spent much time with the short person. yes, you can be jealous now. :)

And also, I had very bad Parking Karma. What did I DO, universe??

Ahhhh, so that's where everyone was! I must have missed that—I was feeling the lack on my flist. *hugs* Glad you had a great time!

*sigh* now if I only I could get to D*C and meet you, too!

*sigh* Wish I could've been there.

Actually, no. I wish I had remembered that 1) Comic Con was happening this past weekend, 2) I have a sister who lives in San Diego, and 3) I could totally have been there. *headdesk*

Aww, I wish you'd been there too!!
lizardbeth: Dylonslizardbeth_j on July 27th, 2010 01:47 am (UTC)
Yes. Wish you were with us, too! In fact, I told Allie the famous "it was POURING BUCKETS last time I tried this" story. :)

Of course if it had been a little bit less last second we might have even managed to mention it to other people! heh.

I am jealous! I only got to wave to him on the elvator.

Glad you missed the stabbing, frolicndetour and [info]nicole_anell are indeed, talented, lovely and awesome. YOU need to come to DragonCon!

I will always be glad I don't go to SDCC. The crowds would literally give me a stroke.

omg, yes, SDCC is too crowded for ME, and I don't have a crowd issue. I'm hoping they might figure out how to split it one of these days and get it more manageable again, but prob not.

But sadly, I don't think I'll be able to get to D*C anytime soon between the timing of Labor day and being on the wrong coast. :(

Thank you again for driving out to meet me and doing touristy things! You're definitely a great person to go to the zoo with. And the short person is going to take over the world, clearly. :)))

you're welcome! :D I realized later that I was following one of my prof's advice about filling out the bar exam written portion: first you answer the question and THEN you write "This stuff I also know".... And you got the benefit of my "this stuff I also know" about animals... :)

heh, I'm glad he wasn't annoying!
