    I thought we were figuring out the carpooling when we got there. I for 1 will need a ride down, she can't make the long trip yet. So, if any-1 has a lil extra room, please let me squeeze in.

    Vos, I would suggest PMing the people who you think might be able to get a ride with... or just privately ask. We would, but we can't... leaving in like 14 hours, and already stuffed to the gills.

    Well, we finished cutting/sorting Jeremy's comic pages at about 330am today. In other news... a dear college friend, Andy Hoover, has sadly not pulled through of a tragic traffic accident on the way back from a huge theatre review thingy in socal this past weekend/early part of the week... Andy was an amazing guy who always told me to do great things every time we parted ways. I think that's something worth aspiring to. If I suddenly bite someone's head off or collapse in tears over the weekend, you'll know why. Of course, I'm too manly to do that. ;)

    I am working on confirming how many seats I have open in my car, and then I'll let Vos and Russ know if I have room. I am pretty sure I am the only car going from Sac, so once my car is full, I think that's it.

    Everyone:

    If that's so, I may not be going as I had planned. I don't think the financial situation is going to allow it for me after all, and I've been wrestling around with some crap-ups on an assignment in my computer course that's due this Saturday.:( If I go it will be a last minute thing (I would let somebody know by tomorrow evening). If no one hears from me by tomorrow then it means that I won't be going.

    Maybe the next out'a town con.

    (This will have been the second Wonder Con that I had missed two years in a row. Hopefully that may all change soon though; I'm supposed be getting a couple of more interviews next week, one of them looks pretty promising. We'll see.)

    If you guys don't hear from me by tomorrow, have a groovy old time and tell me all about when you get back.

    Is this the Con that will be featuring a clip from the new X-Files movie ? I heard that Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny were going to be there.

    that's the whisper i heard as well. Even a small chance for Ray Park to appear for the upcoming GI Joe flick. Although, that would be either 2-day or Sun (just in case u didn't know: Park was Darth Maul).

    They are scheduled to appear... Duchovny and Andersen

    Sorry for not making it down to the Con. With the weather reports and just getting back on my feet, and the headcold, it just was to much to do at this time. We had damage during the last bad storm and feel we need to be closer to home- just in case. Also freeway/causeway driving in high winds is not something that I really want to do. Maybe we will look at the one in San Diego since we are missing this one. Hope everyone has fun.

    Got back a little bit ago.

    Had fun as always hanging out with SVRF'rs. Max got many photo ops from other fans in his Yoda costume.

    Weather only really got bad for us on our way out. Hope the Magical Mystery Tour Bus had a safe trip back.

    Well I don't think Celebration Japan should be considered C-5 in the same way no one called Celebration Europe C-5.

    I think C-5 will probably come down the pike in 2010 to celebrate thirty years of Empire.

    I guess in the interim there can only be one replacement ..... FLASH-CON!
