First of all, I wanted to purchase tickets for Comic Con 2012. I got to the line to purchase tickets at 7:00 on Thursday, but I was not even close to buying tickets. On Friday, I got to the line at 4:45....Yes 4:45 in the morning. I was surprised because there looked to be a large number of people who camped out all night to get tickets. The line serpentined for 4 blocks or so, and I was pretty worried. About 5:30, the line started to move and by 6:00, I was in the room where we all those who would be purchasing tickets were put. From there it was a 2 hour wait till ticket sales commenced.
I will say that one of the best things about Comic Con is the people, and I got to know a number of people quite well during the waiting period. We all shared stories about Comic Con and about our love for the convention. So, though I waited about 5 hours before I actually bought my tickets, sharing that time with my fellow conventioneers was pretty special. At around 9:45 I was at a terminal and I was able to get my two four day passes with preview night. I was stoked. Now, on to the convention.
I really wanted to see the Big Bang Theory panel, and got in line a little before 11:00 for a 12:30 panel. Bad idea. I did not even come close to getting in. Honestly, the line was probably the longest line I have ever been in, and it took me till 2:30 to get into Hall 20. It was well worth it though since I was able to see the
I then hit the main floor with my wife and we hit as many booths that we could find giving Freebees. Again a lot of waiting, but I was pretty much used to it by now.
Well, three days down and two to go. So much still to see and so much to do.
I wonder what I'll see tomorrow.
