    WAH! I didn't get my ticket!

    I still need to know if I can share Eva's room. Otherwise, I can't afford to go! :(

    Let me know asap, please? Thanks!

    Me neither - I *knew* there was something I was forgetting! D'oh! Looks like we'll have to have our own "forgetful folks" party instead :(

    Yeah, all us late-comers can have a party!

    I'm going to be in Eva's room. We have room for one more, too.


    EDIT:

    I'm now officially registered for C3 and have my airline ticket bought. I'm on the same flight to Indianapolis as Eva, but not the same return flight back to SFO.

    The coupons to buy autographs are for pre-sale now. This will help greatly reduce your wait in line (hopefully). Details:

    STAR WARS Official Pix Autograph Collector,

    We have just launched online pre-registration for the Celebration III
    autograph and photo coupons! Buy your coupons today to avoid long lines
    at the show. Customers who pre-register get priority treatment and
    instant access into the "Fast Path" system to pick up your coupons.
    Pre-registered customers will also have the lowest numbered wrist bands that
    we will utilize for guests with long lines. Stop by
    www.officialpix.com and get your Celebration III autograph and photo coupons today!

    Autograph Program Details From Our Site: There will be more Star Wars
    actors signing autographs than have ever been assembled before at
    Celebration III! A lot of planning and preparation have been put into the
    operation of the Autograph Hall to make your experience a pleasant one. If
    you take a few minutes to read this over, you'll see how the Hall will
    operate and get the autographs that you want as easily and quickly as
    possible.

    The Answer Booth: There be an Answer Booth just outside the hall doors,
    and Volunteers all will be wearing orange or red Official Pix shirts.
    If you have a question, please ask one of the Official Pix Volunteers.

    How to get Autographs: We have two kinds of autographs. Personal, where
    you wait in line to get it in person with the actor and Pre-signed,
    where the actor has pre-signed Limited Edition Celebration III photos,
    which are available in the Pre-Signed area of the room.

    Personal Autographs: Before getting an autograph you must first
    purchase autograph coupons. Coupons are $10 each, and the actors require
    between 1 and 3 coupons for each autograph. Limited Edition Celebration III
    photos are also available for purchase at $5.00 each, but may only be
    purchased with an autograph. If you are providing your own item to sign,
    you don't need to purchase a photo.

    Because there are so many actors, more than 40, and photos (108+), we
    have printed order form booklets. You can pickup an order booklet from
    the Answer Booth. The booklet shows each actor, his or her photos, and
    how many coupons are required for that actor. The form is designed to
    help you easily decide how many autograph coupons and photos you might
    want to purchase. You will need to complete this form prior to entering
    the coupon purchase line. You may pay with cash, or credit card,
    including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express.

    Pre-Signed Autographs: We also have a store where you may purchase many
    of the same autographed Limited Edition photos without waiting in the
    sometimes long personal autograph lines. This line will allow you to
    choose from autographed photos, even if the actor has not arrived yet.

    Managing Lines: We have planned for a Fast Path system and will begin
    using it if either of the lines grow very long. We will hand out tickets
    to anyone who asks, to return no sooner than 1 hour in the future. The
    Fast Path ticket has an appointment time on it. You may leave and
    return to the shorter Fast Path line only during the printed time on the
    ticket. For example, if it says 1:30 - 2:00, then you must enter the line
    between those hours and you will receive priority access to the
    cashiers.

    We expect that only about 25% of our actors will have lines significant
    enough to warrant special line management. The process for controlling
    these lines is achieved with numbered wristbands. Upon purchasing your
    coupons, you will be given a wristband that is numbered. At the
    entrance to each of the controlled actor lines there will be an elevated
    marker board. On it will be a number between 1 and 21. When we start the
    day, we will write a number 1 on the board, indicating those with a 1 on
    their band may enter the line. We will keep raising the number until we
    have a full queue. Additionally, we will raise the number throughout
    the day to fill the queue up as

    I ordered two Star Wars ROTS Souvenir Movie Guide with all the actors in it. It's hard covered as well. I plan to take that one as well as see if I can't get any autographs in it.

    Make sure you pee in a cup, then instead of telling GL how his movies make you feel, you can SHOW him instead! ;)

    I just read that Lucas'll be there. Oh MAN. I can't wait to see pics and hear stories. Meanwhile, I'll be kicking my own ass for not getting my act together and going to the con myself!

    Is anyone here flying with Southwest Airlines? I'm flying with them and it looks like I'm going to be by myself on the plane and I was just wondering if anyone else was going into Indianpolis with them because Southwest will switch me to another one of their flights for free.

    Maybe I'll get GL to sign my C-2 exclusive "Jorge Sacul" figure? (his X-WING pilot alter-ego) And let it be known, I also want in on working the MR booth. I practically was playing with them the whole time at WonderCon! And all the times I was demo-ing them to the public, I felt like I was on some Jedi info-mercial ;)

    If you don't get to see George at C3, there's always the charity premiere on May 12, or maybe the midnight show on the 19th? [face_thinking]
