Guess who’s going to Comic Con? Me!!!!!
Earlier this year, I attended my first ever Comic-Con here in Portland. I only went for one day (with my kids and mom). It was quite an experience! This time tomorrow, I will be landing at the San Diego International Airport ready to brave the crowds and the insanity at the San Diego Comic Con.
I am so excited and nervous. Will I get in to see one of the panels with Benedict Cumberbatch? Will I be the oldest person camping out in line overnight to get into Hall H? Will I snore while camping out in line overnight or Hall H? Will I spend through my life savings on doo-dads and doo-hickies that I just absolutely must have? Will my children and husband survive without me for six days?
Did I mention that I am nervous? Thankfully, I’m going with an experience con-goer, my friend Amy Nichols, who was able to get a PRO badge (as a soon to be published author, she can do cool things like that) for herself and one for a friend (Me!). She knows the ropes and will be able to tell me what to do and what no to do and will hopefully be able to keep me from making a fool of myself when (if?) we get to meet Benedict Cumberbatch or John Green or Nathan Filion or the entire cast of Orphan Black or anyone from Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead.
Of course, I will somehow find time to read this weekend (on the plane, while standing in enormously long lines for various panels, etc.). I’ll try to make some blog posts but won’t be able to absolutely promise. But, if you are interesting in following along with this 40-something’s first SDCC experience, be sure to check out my twitter page @underagraysky I’ll be sure to post things/photos there.
Are any of you going to SDCC?
