    Well, C4 picked up most of my bill, but here's an idea:

    Air: $260
    Hotel: $170/night (could probably find cheaper)
    Car: $280 + $32/day parking (found out later could have parked on street overnight for free - con center parking was $12 on top - could have done much cheaper with shuttles, but wanted to get away from the con a bit)
    Food: About $50/day. A sandwich and soda at the con was about $11.

    Heh - I thought the same, but to be fair, here's what LAPD/FD seemed to be thinking. This is total speculation on my part! No one ever officially explained it.

    Given the size and location of the bag of pants, the second floor was in little danger. Those inside were relatively safe, and there was little room to move them out. Additionally, moving them would have put them in the danger zone. Now why they didn't just fill the hall then, I have no clue.

    Moving people with that person in their midst would have been hard.

    The mayor was left there, but the police don't like him lately!

    Seriously though, the real danger area was supposedly the first floor (where I was directing folks!).

    This looks like the best thing to come out of C4.

    For those who didn't go, you can get a piece of the cake they served at Opening Ceremonies on eBay.

    And if you didn't see the Family Guy Star Wars preview, click here.

    And encased in clear resin it should be quite well protected, if it survived the casting process that is.

    If I were wealthy, I would buy that, rip the resin open, and eat that cake.

    I once bought a half-eaten tuna fish sandwich that someone pulled out of Carrie Fisher's garbage can from behind her house for $375.25.

    That sandwich was mine, actually. I ate only tuna for 542 days when I did my pilgrimage outside Carrie Fisher's house in college.
