Flashback to last year:
"Honey, next year I'm definitely NOT doing this last-minute again. We're going to book our hotel room early, I'm gonna get my tickets early, everything early."
"Oh God. Oh God...oh God."
I might have to pop into SDCC for a day this year, maybe two. This wasn't planned, but you know what they say: planning is for the weak. True adventurers throw their fates to the wind and sleep on friend's floors.
But if I indeed go, I have vowed to visit the zoo. As I said last year: "On one day I'm just going to visit the zoo and cultural places of interest. No comics."
I will know by the end of the week if I'm really going or not. But, really scrambling here. And have to break up my vacation because originally I was slated to go to Tampa and see my newborn nephew. So it'll be like: "Hellooooo San Diego! Goodbyeeeee San Diego! Hellooooooo Nephew!" But I can buy my nephew that Fin Fang Foom SDCC exclusive set of Marvel Legends action figures, so it's all going to work out.
I'll take pictures, don't worry. And don't get me wrong, I'm happy to be going. But next year -- screw next year, in September, I'm going to book my hotel, my tickets, have my registration ready, everything. Seriously. You can hold me to it.
UPDATE: Yes, I am definitely going to SDCC now. My thanks to all who did the scramble. I think it shall be worth it.
