Hello, Comic-Con folks — we love you, seriously–we do!– but c’mon — you gotta give us more than two days to get ready for the DREADED hotel sale…. I mean, seriously, that’s smack dab at the beginning (or middle) of most people’s workday, and making arrangements ain’t always that easy. Heck, additionally, there’s this little thing called Star Wars Celebration that a lot of us are heading to, and it’s too late now to change our airline tickets to accommodate this LAST MINUTE schedule announcement. I’m 30 minutes into air travel at 9 a.m. California time.
DON’T GET ME WRONG — I know it sounds like I’m whining (which, I guess, I am…. I’ll work on that). But what’s the reason for SUCH SHORT NOTICE? Is it intentional so that fewer people are able to participate? I’m sure there’s a reason for this strategy, but right now it just seems like sucky planning.
Okay…. I got that off my chest. I’ll take some breathers now and try to figure something out. I’ll try to beg, borrow and steal to get some people to apply for a spot for me.
Again, NO HARD FEELINGS….. but please, please, please consider a bit more advance warning next time…. your biggest fans would appreciate it.
For those of you who haven’t yet heard about the hotel sale, here’s the notice that want out today from Comic-Con International. Make your plans and say your prayers….. HOTEL-POCALYPSE hits Thursday!

If you enter the waiting room after 9:00 AM (PDT), you will be placed at the end of the line and your chances of getting a room will decrease.
