On the list to be a reporter for CBR at Comic-Con, that is. I’ll get a free four-day pass and  cover one to two panels a day (no, I don’t know which ones yet) and get paid for it. Not a huge amount, but considering I’d have done it for free, I’m not going to sneeze at it.  And  apparently there’s all the convention junk food I can eat.

Now, I am still a long way from San Diego and the Hobbit panel and Richard Armitage, and I don’t just mean in terms of the 2,000 miles that separate me from that lovely city. It’s getting there and back and having a place to stay while I am there.  But the first step has been taken.  We shall see . . . I really appreciate everyone’s good wishes and support of any kind.
