    Well, if she does find something, that leaves Dale and myself with four beds and two rooms! We could always give up the second room and keep one to ourselves, but it would help if we could split the room four ways instead of two.

    G4 will broadcast live from Steve Sansweet's panel (a first) and you can participate in the panel, even though you aren't going to Comic-Con:

    Hopefully, this will mean an announcement concerning Celebration V.

    *shrug* I'm guessing an announcement about one of the video games or maybe the live TV series.

    Both prospects are valid... Especially with The Old Republic trailer looking so awesome... The TV series could also be mentioned and since it'd be televised it's be a good launch point at SDCC.

    I went to FOX Studios Sydney when they were still doing work on Ep III. Didn't get to see anything major but when I was put on hold they played Star Wars music. :D Next time though I'd probably like to hit the other side of Oz, Perth maybe, NZ would also be awesome. :)

    unfortunately Matt is right :(

    We were going to go to the US for our honeymoon in the first week of September, but due to the dollar crash we are having to holiday closer to home at:

    [link=http://www.hamiltonisland.com.au/]Hamilton Island- Great Barrier reef[/link]

    One of the main reasons I wanted to go to comic con was of course- comic con=cool, but to meet a lot of the wonderful people I talk to online, to meet them in person !

    how mad is it at Comic Con ? Is it ridiculously busy as in you can't move ? If you want to see something you have to line up forever ? If you want to buy something is it an all day exercise? I imagine it would be absolutely crazy there.

    It does get pretty crazy. Some days the dealer's hall is pretty packed, and yes, there are some things you have to line up for pretty early. It helps if the panels you want to see are in the same room on a given day - just line up early and stay in there for the day! I don't know about having trouble buying stuff - maybe for the exclusives? I haven't tried.

    [link=http://scifiwire.com/2009/07/11-things-you-must-see-at.php#more]Scifi.com[/link] has an article on some of the things to expect at SDCC. They also have [link=http://scifiwire.com/2009/06/which-sci-fi-shows-and-st.php]one[/link] on the SciFi channel activities.

    Looks like I'll be camped out for Ballroom 20 on Friday again. Panels there in the morning include SGU and BSG/Caprica. Confusing though - one of the other panels is listed as happening at the Bayside Hilton? Does that mean the con is expanding beyond the convention center?

    Update on Official Pix autographs:

    http://www.scifiexpo.com/DCC/sdcc09.html

    I wonder if Carrie Fisher will be one of the "surprise" guests. After all, her show ends on the 23rd.

    I haven't seen "Twilight" If I liked the afore mentioned programs, do you think I'd like Twilight ? I think it might be good, but maybe not as a Vampire flick ?
