    that's right, jolly ol' London has the Summer Olympics next year.

    Hey, also a presidential election year, maybe we can have some sort of Chancellor Debate between Emperor Palpy and someone from the Rebellion.... that would be funny as hell. VP debate Vader versus Ackbar

    I'll be driving down with my friends again. I much rather drive than fly. I paid a lot for my stormtrooper armor, and I do not trust an airline with it. (I was nervous with it being in the back of a pick up truck last time, but everything was okay. :)) I'm about 15 hours from Orlando, and we had 4 drivers, and we just drove. I started driving myself around 4:30pm, went and picked up my two friends who were about an hour and a half west of me, then drove south 2 hours to where we met up with another friend who had the truck. We then picked up another friend on the way down. We didn't arrive in Orlando until about 6pm the next day, only because we had car trouble (minor), and stopped quite a few times. It was an Epic trip, and I'm looking forward to another one.

    I think we'll be more prepared with signage (our handmade "honk if you love Wookiees" sign wasn't bad though) for the way down this time. :D

    [face_laugh] Same here :D


    Anyway.... you can see that coming, a big anouncement at SDCC for CVI
    but something was missing, after the line "get your tickets now" they forgot to mention: the best hotels are kinda sold out :p

    Go figure.
    14 months away from CVI and most of the hotels are booked.
    That's incredible!

    Last night I dreamed I showed up to work at the B&N booth at CVI and they decided to have it inside of a mall. I wondered where they were gonna put all the people and the tie fighter replica.

    There is a possible hurricane tracking toward Florida right now. This is usual for Florida in August so we were lucky last year. Just the slight threat of one could cause guests to cancel.
    I didn't jump on the lodging like a smart person so I just might have to stay at the same hotel a few miles away as last year. I guess ultimately it wasn't bad since all I did was sleep there for a few hours but I couldn't walk to the convention center. The night before the Main Event I didn't know how the overnight parking would be handled, like if I could have gotten towed for not paying for the next day, and took a taxi to and from the convention center that day.

    Too bad it has to fall right before the start of school. I recently got a job at the school and there's no way my supervisor will let me take off this week next year. We're too busy. Then again, I'll only need Wednesday and Thursday off, so maybe there's some hope.

    I doubt I'm the only one affected by the start of school. I wish they would've taken that into consideration when they picked the dates.

    you are not the only one. I work at an University and move in weekend is celebration weekend, so it's the busiest time of the entire year. It's going to be tough but i've worked there a while so they've been acting flexible about it
