    After having reserved my room nearly a year ago, I had to cancel it for personal reasons but I'm staying with some friends at another hotel now.

    Sorry to hear you had to cancel.
    Nice to see you finally made it to the virtual Fig hotel Farfy!
    I just checked my balance and I was charged just this weekend for my first nights stay. They didn't notify me before hand but at least I know I'm staying there for sure now.
    [face_peace] I made my FF badge and I'm all set. Look forward to seeing you fellow
    Star Wars Fig-eans. :p

    According to Trip Advisor we'd be lucky to have remote controls and basic channels, let alone inputs. I have a feeling theyre old style TVs with just a coax in. Bring an RF converter maybe and hope they don't catch you doin stuff?

    I have an adapter so we can connect a/v to a laptop, so hopefully that'll do in case there's no a/v. I'll cry if there's not though :p

    I've got adapters of all shapes and sizes. But I'll be damned if I'm lugging my entire junk drawer with me to Cali :p

    If need be, I can deal with suffering through watching stuff on a laptop screen, as that's what we're bringing with us.

    Lufta Shif, is your room secured? Friendly concern. :)

    I called the Fig's main number a few days ago to confirm my reservation and was told that the first night had been charged the day before. At least I know I have the room but I didn't know they were going to do this. It could've messed up my finances big time but thank God it was okay. They really should inform people of this procedure at the time they make the reservation.

    Hey, next week is the 'thingy,' y'all! Is everyone excited?

    BTW, anyone know if there will be any access to irons or steamers? I might have to take out a few folds in my costmes.

    Don't most hotel rooms come with irons? I could be wrong, but I thought they did.

    Yeah, but I think the Fig is a whole 'nother story... LOL. Iron and ironing board -- they might keep one on hand for guests; you'll just have to enquire when you get there.

    Sorry to hear some people have had to cancel at the Fig.

    I think the Figueroa will be the hotel to be at , without a doubt. :)

    Look forward to meeting everyone. :)

    Uno never called me back, but he did charge my card. I will take that as a yes....or perhaps I should call him again? Part of me does not want to tick him off! :(

    Wow! One week from now we will be there! I can't it! I remember when we all booked this place almost a year ago! Unreal!

    They're using my sister's card, so I don't know if they've charged us yet, but I'll have her check. As for irons, we're probably all friends with someone who will be staying in one of the nicer hotels. You can always take the shuttle up to the Westin and borrow a friend's iron.

    I love how we're all on a first name basis with Uno, he's so... weird.

    I must be the only person who actually hasn't dealt with Uno - I've only emailed/talked to Elyse Omori. She's been very nice and I've never had any problems with her. Wonder how I got lucky... ;)

    I spoke to Uno once when he called me to confirm in March. All other times I've either spoken with or e-mailed Elyse, and you're right. She's an absolute sweetheart. A Yin to Uno's Yang.



    oh that sounded wrong...

    Uno was really nice to me on the phone, he complimented my name, which is weird. His tone of voice is just... crazy. I don't know. It feels like I'm checking in to some scary murder mystery hotel.

    There is nothing formally organized in the works. I think folks are waiting until the schedule is final. Plus, with the Fig bar and pool area's great reputation, I assume folks will simply hang out there post-con. I could be wrong, but that is what I plan on doing. :p
