No, I still haven’t booked a flight and hotel yet. Costs and logistics and determining how much wear and tear this old body can take must still be sorted.
Angie Long Comic Book Resources UNITED STATES
However, an email popped into my box tonight from Comic-Con International. I am identified as a press associate for Comic Book Resources and I have my confirmation number and bar code that will allow me to pick up my four-day press badge. I feel kind of “official” now.
I’m excited, I’m nervous, I’m eager and anxious all at the same time.
I thank you all once again for the financial support I have already received and will appreciate any additional help. It ain’t cheap for a hotel room or taxis or much of anything in sunny Southern California, it seems. Thankfully I’ll get free food at this shindig and whichever hotel I end up in should provide a complimentary breakfast, so I won’t need lots of dosh for eats. Saturday–the day of the scheduled Warner Brothers time block–I may not be able to eat anyway. I think you know why . . . something to do with the handsome gent in the tux.
Oh, Richard Armitage, please bring it on for all the fanboyz and fangurlz.
Please be there in all your sweet, shy, funny and beautiful glory. Because if this guy with the initials TH shows up and you don’t, I will be a little disappointed. No, make that a lot. No pressure, though, darling. And I don’t really care if you’re dressed up as Thorin or in your LBS and jeans or wearing a burlap sack (although the latter could be rather itchy, I would think), just as long as you’re there . . .
