Longing for San Diego Comic-Con
The buzz has been building for weeks and now, finally, at long last, after months of costume prep and wrangling of plane tickets, badges and hotel rooms it’s time for San Diego Comic-Con. Woot! Only problem is that I’m not actually going to SDCC. Yeah, see there’s this whole “real life” thing and it comes with adult responsibilities and obligations so I will be staying at home in lovely New Hampshire during what is sure to be an amazing convention. (Insert long-suffering sigh here.)
I have only recently started going to Cons, and didn’t really, truly fall in love with them until PAX East this winter in Boston. There was so much fantastic Geeky Goodness in one spot that it was a little breathtaking. It may also have had something to do with the fact that it was freezing cold and snowing and the air outside sucked the breath from your lungs. Either way it was the best Con I’ve ever been to and now I am addicted. Only problem is that there are too darn many.
There are plenty of local cons that are easy for me to attend like Temple Con in Rhode Island or CarnageCon just over the border in Vermont. Most of the big ones, however, are a plane flight away and that means picking and choosing what fits my schedule. What fits this summer is GenCon in Indianapolis which is just two weeks away. As excited as I am for GenCon, I am still horribly jealous of everyone heading out to San Diego right now. I suppose I will just have to live vicariously through their tweets and blog postings, but in two weeks, it’s my turn people!
