It’s been a busy couple of weeks.
was in town for the San Diego Comic Con, as was my friend Cindi Rice. Haven’t seen Monte since Gen Con Indy 2005, so that was a nice reunion as we’re good friends but strangely didn’t realize how close we were until after I moved to California. Spent just about every evening with Monte and/or stannex
, and Cindi. As the SDCC was sold out on Saturday (and I work on Thu/Fri), I planned to go on Sunday, as I’m not super-into comics and a short day would be fine for me. Turns out that Sunday tickets sold out on Saturday, so we ended up playing games at Keri & JD’s (Keri’s blog has pics of Stan! and I playing Wii Boxing, fun!), which was fine, as I hear it was REALLY crowded at SDCC. Not to mention that I was really tired from going out every night, and Cindi was back pretty late from business meetings at SDCC every single night (she crashed at my place), so getting up early on Sunday would not have made me happy.
Mind you, I probably would have been able to go to SDCC if I had received the info that SDCC sent to UD about getting an industry-insider ticket. But I didn’t get that until about a week after the deadline. :/
Monte had never been to San Diego before and wanted to do something touristy, so we went to Sea World on Monday, which was fun. I haven’t been to SW since I left California, and I got some good pictures and had a nice day hanging out with my friends. So rather than a mediocre SDCC experience, I had a nice, fun, Monte-Con experience.
