My Last Day of Comic-Con

July 29, 2007 by  

I feel like I’ve been away from GMMR forever! Today is my last day here at Comic-Con here in San Diego. It’s been a great time, but I have no shame in telling you that it’s been kicking my ass. I’m feeling the effects of it today, but I’m going to buck up and deal.

I’ve been to some really great panels while I’ve been here and I can’t wait to share the highlights and all the pics I took. Sadly, there were just some events that we were closed out of. We tried to get into line for the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and HEROES panels a good 5 hours before they began, and I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that there were at least 3,500 people in front of us. Again, this is 5 hours before the event even started. Not wanting to spend my entire day in line and chance not even making it in, we opted for some other, incredibly rewarding events (aka quality time with Lee Pace) – but more on that later.

So with all the chaos of this weekend, I definitely haven’t had time to blog like I would have liked to. But Ducky and I don’t head back to Boston until 9:30pm PST tonight, so we will definitely have some time to blog away at the airport.

Miss you all!

    I went to the Bionic Woman, Heroes, and Battelstar Galactica Panels and I was seriously keeping an eye out for you! I got in line for HEROES at 7 am in the freaking morning! Since they don’t kick you out of the exhibit hall I just hung out in room20 all day. I told myself that if I saw you I would let you cut (for the greater good of the internet of course) I was bummed I didn’t see you though. I think I’m sleeping the rest of the day. I hope your stay in San Diego was good. Comic-Con can suck the life out of people…I’m glad you survived.

    Like cure6199 I sat my butt in ballroom 20 all day! It was worth it though 🙂

    Oh guess what. After the Joss Whedon panel I went back to the exhibit hall and was near the Heroes booth when Ali Larter came by. She snuck in and asked “What do you guys really think of Jessica?” She talked for a bit and took a few pictures with people. She was so nice. 🙂

    My husband and I were at Comic-Con 7/26 to 7/29. We attended our friend Joe Matt’s first panel on 7/27 and were pleasantly surprised to see a line out the door. Afterwards, we walked by an autograph booth and spotted James Kyson Lee, who plays Ando on Heroes. I took a picture of him but didn’t get a chance to meet him. On 7/28, we checked out the line for the Heroes panel at 7:30am and couldn’t believe how long it was (apparently, it began forming at 4:00am). We skipped out on it but many of our friends waited patiently and got in. That same afternoon, we bumped into David Gedge of The Wedding Present (my hubby’s favorite band) in front of Joe Matt’s booth. David was delighted to learn that we are friends of Joe’s. He gave Joe his latest album and we all took a picture together. Comic-Con randomness rules.

    For those that went, how was the BSG panel?

    Carli: The BSG panel was good but personally I liked last years panel much better. It was basically a lot of giggling and talking about how sad it is going to be to see Battlestar end. They did say this thing though.. SPOILER ALERT!!!!!

    for those who love to see Starbuck and Lee in scenes together…there will be plenty of those so many that we will get tired of them. Who knows if there is truth to that but I thought it was interesting. I also saw the actor that plays the cheif in the exhibit hall today (it was the first day I actually got to go into the exhibit hall…waiting for panels was my full time job) but my camera died of batteries. Boo

    That sucks that last year’s was better, but at least you were still there. And that spoiler excites me to no end LOL
