i just checked with our hotel and they have free wireless internet. matt do u recall which grocery store was located near our hotel? any bank of america? oh i also changed my OPX volunteer hours to all of thursday. depending on the rest of the con schedule i may or may not add another shift.
I don't recall where a BofA was, and there are two grocery stores across the street. They're not chain stores, they look more like 7-11 types.

Corgi and Master Replicas To Cease Producing Star Wars Products
C4: No Master Replicas Booth At Celebration IV
Crap, I've been so busy I forgot to order them I remember last time on registration packet pick-up night (Wed before the con opened) they had a little table in the lobby where you could buy your tickets (no line - the place was a ghost town)! Hopefully they will do that again? Do you know Matt?
THE CIV SCHEDULE IS OUT! (Well, Part One at least. Other updates tomorrow)
FYI - Got this e-mail about RETURN OF PINK FIVE being at C4 - since myself, Robert, and my brother shot the Fan Film 2 years ago:
Hello everyone -
It's been a long wait - but as of today, Return of Pink Five Volume
Two is online!
Here's the link:
Unlike Volume One last year, Volume Two is an actual contestant in
the "Fan Movie Challenge"... so after viewing, if you want to go to
the Fan Challenge Voting page at:
and cast a vote for Audience Choice... well, I won't tell you which
film to vote for. That would be wrong!
Meanwhile, the final chapter - aka "Volume Three" - is scheduled for
its first-ever public test screening at Star Wars Celebration IV in
Los Angeles on May 27th. There will be a special Pink Five event
at 5 PM Sunday in the "Celebration Theater" - we'll be showing the
entire Pink Five saga, wrapping up with the Volume Three debut. If
you're coming to Celebration, please come out and see us.
We appreciate all your support - and patience! - over the many months
it's taken to bring Volume Two to you. We hope you enjoy it, and
may the Force be with you, totally.
and the Pink Five team

Return is three volumes? I did not know that, though it was two.

It is the main entrance seen at the right of [link=http://www.lacclink.com/images/MainImageBg.jpg]this photo[/link]. If the line is long, we will do our best to arrange for an escort to get us into the convention early for our scheduled photo shoot.

Accuweather has a different forecast too: http://wwwa.accuweather.com/forecast.asp?partner=accuweather&traveler=0&zipcode=90017&metric=0 Whatever, as long as we don't have blizzard conditions again.
