Comic-Con: Thursday

I don't know why spending two whole hours at SDCC makes me feel exhausted. But I did a lot of walking to/from/at the convention center, and there's... crowds and stuff. Also, I came home and emailed back and forth with a stranger who wants to borrow one of my ducks (long story) and cooked a pork roast (I ACTUALLY COOKED DINNER, stop the press) and processed my pictures and maybe I have a right to be tired.

Also, I read a thing about David Tennant flying to LAX today. !!! Maybe he will be at Saturday's screening. Maybe I need to show up VERY VERY EARLY.

I tried to go to the Burn Notice panel today, but arrived twenty minutes ahead of time and it was way too late. I went through some of the Ballroom 20 line anyway -- I had no idea how far it wound around and around and around and around out on the deck, and how (*^!(*&# hard it is to get OUT of line once you're in the outside area. SDCC is not designed to allow people to go outside and come back in by any way other than the front lobby, so most of the doors are locked. By the time I actually gave up, it was hard to extricate myself.

But I have new respect for the Ballroom 20 line, and the fact that the SDCC folks know it's huge. They must have arrangements for waiting prior to 9am. I'm still a bit baffled by the sekrit exhibit hall lines (the one outside the front door is apparently the last to move), but I'm going in crazy early tomorrow to have a look and also get a good seat for Farscape.
