P.S. Hey!  When did I become a demigod?  I mean, I know my mother thinks I'm a little princess, but really now! :D
Something we've been meaning to do for a while. Z reminded me tonight. You deserve it. :).
*Jill blushes purple to the tip of her tail*

Shucks.  I'm just a very lucky fangirl, that's all.  :D

*Jill looks up the member list and sees the company she's keeping in the demigod ranks and gulps*

Er, how about demi-demigod?  Or semi-demigod?  Or cute little harmless purple girl?  :D

Oh, don't want to hijack the thread, so, here's a quick fun Drom/Comic-Con story y'all may like that I don't think anyone will mind my telling...

I think this must have been at the 2000 Comic-Con as I think this happened when I was working on the show and had gotten all the writers their passes to the con.  The very large muscular genre actor Brian Thompson (X-Files, Kindred: The Embraced, Buffy) was sitting in the autograph area signing pics.  I've been a fan of his in all of the above listed shows and thought, wow, he'd make a great Nietzschean!  At the time, there was more concern about hiring Canadian talent as guest stars and I thought, well, if he's been on X-Files, maybe he's Canadian.  So I asked, "Are you by any chance Canadian?"  And he gave me a very strange look.  Well, okay, it's probably not a question you get asked everyday.  So he said, "What is this thing about Canada, everyone keeps asking me?"  Turns out, Ethlie (and possibly IIRC Zack/Ash) had also stopped by his table with the exact same idea!  :D  LOL  Great minds think alike, and all that!

Only at Comic-Con!  :D

So many cons, so little time...

{{{{{{Gode}}}}}}  Yay!!  It'll be fun to meet you...crash away!  I'll add you to the list shortly......think about a name tag now. ;)  And just a thought...sharing a room make sit cheaper.  If you can room with someone, you could stay at the hotel.  Check the list above. :)
I don't think you understand just how deeply i'm going to be pulling to make this work, money wise. Right now, i am so far in the red i can hardly see daylight. even at half price for a double (at 50 bucks) it's still over twice as much as the hostel, so i just don't know at the moment.

name tag, name tag

good question

oh, and for recognition, let's make this easy, i'll be the redhead in tye dye :D

Okay...fair enough then, I believe you!  Besides you'll probably not sleep much anyway ;) , so you may not even see the hostel. :lol:

And check on the red hair and tye dye shirt....I'll be wearing....um....erm....well, shoot, it's five months away...I have no clue what I'll be wearing!! ;)

But we'll figure out where to meet so we all find each other!!!

And, Rommie......just  :o  :oh:... hopefully another redhead or two will keep Rov occupied. ;)

Post in this thread, "Does anybody want a roomie"?

And FTR, Lil and Zephyr and I are driving down to SD.  We'll get in around 1 on Friday, leave on Monday AM I think (is that right guys?).

Lil & Zephyr are sharing a room, and I, like Rhys, have a one person room.

Can't wait--and it's such a big group now!!  Hooray!!! :D

Wheeee!  I just booked my flight (can you hear my wallet weeping? ;)) like, 15 minutes ago.

I'll be arriving in SD at about 9:30 am  (An early early day for me. :p) on the 18th (Friday) and leaving at 4:30pm on Monday.  Sadly, this  means I have to be at the Kansas City airport at 6am for my first flight.  :wacko:  :crazy:  :Oo: ;)  So you guys get to meet the silly, tired, and more than slightly wacky silverwind in SD! :look: ;)

{{{{{{{Rhea}}}}}}}  Just wooooooot!!! That will be so fun to see you again!!  And you don't even have to make badges this time. ;)  

gadfly Don't worry.....we'll all figure something out!!

And Rhea and gadfly, I think silverwind is still looking for roomies......  :)  Just an idea.

sw, just ouch!  But I'll add you to the list of people who have their plans made.  And you too, Kathy!!

And silverwind, when you get in on Friday, the hotel won't be ready to check into, but they should have a place to hold your bags.  Plus Rov and I and hopefully Malinda should be there fairly early on Friday, too.  But Gode will be there by Friday as well.

I plan on coming to San Diego but I really don't want a gerbil.  Do I have to take a gerbil?  I'm sure my cats wouldn't appreciate it but the gerbil would not be amused.  ;)  Since I would like to avoid hearing gerbily screams of death, I hope that I may decline.  ;)

At least in my case, extremely unlikely. I'd probably show up on Friday and leave Sunday. The exact times I haven't decided yet. As early on Friday and as late on Sunday as possible, I'd imagine.

Still not sure that I can go yet, but as ordered, some initial info on the area.

The hotel is situated at 719 Ash St.

This puts the nearest Jamba Juice about 9 blocks away, in a mall called "Horton Plaza"

The nearest Peet's coffee store is about 2 miles straight north of the  hotel.

There's a restaurant called "Spacebooth" about 0.1 miles south.

More to come, its lunch time here.
