Comic Con – The Land of Wanders

comiccon01.gif You may have noticed that we are posting after midnight. Well, it took us a good 6 hours to drive from LA to San Diego. Why? Did we come via Yosemite National Forrest?! Nope. Just stuck on the 5. And when we finally arrived at 4pm after missing our appointment Robert Englund of Freddy Kruger fame – two colleagues in a row said,”That’s why I took the train.”

Who else took the train? There was a Kevin Spacey sighting. Who was on the 5? Everyone else in the world.

Anyway, we are posting this after midnight because there is no filing room. We were directed to an outlet in the hallway for all our computing needs. We promise to never bitch about the burnt gratis coffee in normal press rooms again.
