no movie today, apparently, but the dude sitting across from me has the blackest eye I've ever seen. Homeboy got clocked.

I'm coming for you baltimore! I get to enjoy the con for like a whole 2 hours. No panels even. Sigh.

Nah, the buses have wi-fi.

Chinese know how to do it.

WTF? Buses have WI-FI? What kind of witchcraft is this? Wish we had this sorta stuff in my area.

$35 round trip. But it's gonna suck leaving so late... I'm probably not gonna get to the con until 3:30.

And Sunday at that.

You'll probably get there just in time to ask the janitors how hot the Slave Girl Leia cosplayers were.

Yup. Should be spectacular. Floor closes at 5 for God's sake.

Good luck, dude.

Please say hi if you see me-- I'm wearing a Thai beer t-shirt (it's got two elephants facing a tree), and carrying a backpack. If not, no worries, it's a big show... and have fun!!!

And now we're stopped for refueling! I'm screwed! Somebody tell the Baltimore people they need to keep going another hour!

Or at least just the tables with editors I want to work for.

Why didn't you go on Friday or Saturday, or even plan to go for the whole weekend in advance?

Broadcasting live from a return-bound chinatown bus!

I literally got there at 4pm. Luckily I didn't have to pay, which is nice since THE GODDAMN CABS COST MORE THAN MY BUS TICKET!

But I think it was worth it. Showed off the pitches to a bunch of editors and got some really good responses. Hopefully something comes of it.

But yeah, one hour and right back out the door. Hilarious.

Cool. Hope it works out for ya. It may seem silly, but sometimes you have to do crazy shit like that to get a chance at your break. You may have wanted to go for more than an hour but if you didn't take the chance you probably would have regretted it a lot more.

I've done some pretty out there things in the hopes to further my career.

And, btw. I can't open the link you PMd

I'm sure this was covered elsewhere at some point, but I missed it, whatever happened to moving to Sweden and getting married? Did you go there and come back?

I kinda just assumed he left after all that, and was surprised to see he was still here. Glad I'm not the only one out of the loop. :)

She's there, I'm here, plans change all the time. The bottom line is figuring it out financially. I can't work when I'm there and she can't work when she's here, not to mention just the cost of getting there. So... all of it sucks.

On Sunday man? By then most of us were packing it in.

I hope you got to enjoy some stuff.

Well, I hope you got to do that. Again, near everybody was gone. You should have PMed me though! I'd have grabbed dinner with you.
