I’m not at San Diego Comic-Con, like others of my brethren, because from here, SDCC looks like a nightmare. Just the process of getting a pass and a hotel looks like a nightmare. Besides, as much as there is I’d like to see – Doctor Who, Legend of Korra, Veronica Mars… I can’t really justify going all the way out to California for any of that, from a news perspective. But it does look fun… Maybe one day.
I did take a long weekend off from work, expressly because of the con. So I’m that much of a geek.
The Star Wars folks are mostly sitting this out (mostly,) because there’s a big Star Wars con next week in Germany. I’m not going to that, either – though I’ve been to all the domestic ones since 2005 – because, well, Germany. I’m not crossing an ocean to to see nothing but Yet Another Convention Center.
So why didn’t I take next week off? Because I am a ding-a-ling. And also, with the time difference, I think most stuff will be announced really early in the morning EST, and work makes a pretty good reason to get out of bed before dawn. At least SDCC lets me sleep in.
