    I would love to go. I made plans to go to the San Diego Comic Con this year but had to back out :(. Maybe I could make Celebration.

    chances are, i'll make it. I dont know if i'll be traveling from ohio or from louisiana at that point, so we'll have to see how things work out.

    Wow that sounds awesome. I just missed my favorite convention all because of financial reasons or else I would have gone. Check this out:

    this is just a small part of what it looks like and what happens. Of course you get to see the sci/fi, fantasy artists and writers too. Kathy

    If all goes well, you'll also have the partially insane author with no real SW stuff other than three T-shirts and a Darth Vader MR sabre that could be taped to the front of a Classic Army M15A4 Rifle to make a halfway-interesting combination of airsoft and Star Wars.

    I hope everyone is watching COMIC-CON 06 LIVE on cable channel
    #145 (G4). I guess it is running thru Monday. Comic book conventions are just so awesome, at least I went to one and enjoyed the guests as well as some of the comic book artits. Anyway check your onscreen tv guide, it will give you all the dates and times it will still be showing. Kathy

    There are two new Sci Fi Shows to watch:
    Eureka and Stan Lees Lightspeed on the Sci Fi channel on your cable tv which is channel #37. Anybody been watching Eureka? I was underwhelmed. Any thoughts? Kathy

    Summer's been a drag for me. Lots of conflict with living arrangements, child custody, and finances. Still, the Force is with me.

    If we manage to put a plan together to attend, I want in.

    Being the road-trip advocate I am, I can't bear to say this, but Southwest has ninety-nine-dollar one-way specials, though the security crapola you'll have to endure to get on such a flight is nowhere near worth it.

    To me.

    If you mean a day as a 24 hour drive. I use to drive from Houston to Santa Barbara California almost every summer. It would take me 2 1/2 days to make the drive. This wasn't straight through, I would sleep every night usually in New Mexico and then just west of San Antonio. Just getting through Texas was a good day. Of course I just took the I-10 straight across the country.

    I'm going...I'll be joining the big-truck crowd near the end of the year so I can hook up a campertrailer and road-trip it out there. Got a few friends who want to join me, too.

    I want to go. And yes, my summer was crappy. In fact it rolled over into the fall. I moved out of Jacqui's house and Amber and I are living at Woodvale Place Apartments across from RED's Health Club. And that's not it, she's still going to go live at her mom's. Any day now the judge will sign the documents to make it official. I don't understand why Amberdala wants to leave, but I suppose I was lucky enough to have her this long.

    Anyhoot, I want to go, but I must save my money. Sign me up as a BIG Maybe.

    This convention sounds really amazing and I hope whoever goes
    will take pictures and post them here. Can someone write up a daily column type thing as to what went on and post that here also?
    So sorry to hear about your daughter Swampsurfer, but I guess it must be time for her to be with her mom. Good luck on that one.
    So I hope everyone will have a safe and happy Thanksgiving and hope to hear from you all soon.

    i hope everyone had a great time this holiday. i've already reserved the hotel for myself and one other person and i need to know if anybody is coming with me. i can't afford the hotel room and other travel expenses by myself, so i need to know if somebody is coming with me by mid march (i can cancel reservations by the end of march so i won't be charged the full amount). please let me know
