Comic Con day 5 or What I learned at Comic Con...

Well, I fly back to New York today. Comic Con has been a total blast but I don't see myself doing this again. I actually managed to accomplish my major goals here so I don't feel like I missed out on anything. It was great seeing sharpiesgal again and very nice meeting occipitallobe. (I still love the necklace.) And I managed to stay within my budget. Yay!

So I thought I would share a few things that I learned while here...
--Lines are inevitable. You will wait in line for everything. Lines for events and panels, I expected that. Though the scale of it was just crazy. But there were also the lines for the bathrooms, coffee and food stands. Lines to get into the restaurants downtown. Lines to cross the street. If you want to do anything, there's a line for that.
--If you want to get into the big name celebrity panels, plan on camping out over night.
--Bring extra luggage. Trust me, you'll need it.
--If you don't like crowds, don't come here. The Exhibit Hall was worse than Manhattan rush hour.
--Think about your costume before you pick it out. Skinny, pasty, white guys should not dress up as Sparticus. And Spiderman did not have a beer belly. And, guys, if your costume consists of a unitard in any form, wear a cup. I do not need to see that.
--Comic Book Guy does exist. In real life. I saw him.

So long San Diego. It's been fun.

On another note...
I happened to notice this morning that my Twitter updates didn't post to Livejournal at all during the time I was here. I was posting fairly regularly to Twitter with pictures the whole time so check my Twitter account for more Comic Con stuff. I checked online and apparently Loud Twitter, the service I was using to auto post to lj, has gone under. I will switch over to the other service when I get back home.

And finally, my new Droid phone shipped out on Friday and should be waiting for me when I get home. Hu-fucking-rray! I can finally ditch the Blackberry.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming...
