Well, having spent 2.5 hours going through the SDCC schedule and calendaring in the stuff that needs to be done and such, we've found that Friday is just not likely to work because Hasbro's (very short) Star Wars/Indy panel is at 1, Sansweet's SW overall panel is at 4, and Steve and Tycho and I have schedule conflicts all over the place that day.

However, Thursday looks really open after the Sideshow panel. Steve and Tycho have plans in the late afternoon, but free time between. UNFORTUNATELY, Steve's schedule just got a little tighter, an appointment at 1, so we're going to do our lunch on the lawn after the Sideshow panel and then Steve's appointment, on Thursday, around 2pm to 4 or "question mark?". ;)

Last year we hit this awesome sandwich shop and then ate on this nice lawn just across the street from the convention center. Assuming the lawn isn't occupied, we could do the same this year.

Hope to see you guys there!

Revision! Steve has an appointment at 1 now, so we're doing it at 2. We could start without him, but he is SSG. :p I've retitled the thread, although nobody cares.

Whaddya mean no one cares! I'm having to rearrange all of my SDCC plans just to be able to make it and might forgo Friday as a result.

I'm planning on sneaking up and taking pictures of everyone, then PhotoShopping them onto the bodies of the Watchmen.

I'd love to be there with you all, but I'm unable to make it to the Con this year. I'll be there in spirit (but NOT as Hayden, as Sebastian! :pleased: ).

That's it. No Bel-Cam, no Chux. :mad:

Bann'd from the SSG lunch!

(I smell a logo T-shirt out of that)

I won't be there, I'm way short on money, I still need $8 to pay my phone bill this month.

We'll miss you being there, but I bet the wife will appreciate you not geeking out with us. ;)

At least I got the $8 now to pay the phone bill, plus I got enough left to treat one of my step daughters to a matinee showing of the new Batman movie.

I'll certianly miss meeting most of you for the first time.

My in-spirit-with-you today meal was PB&J, a banana, and water... hope yours was more better than mine! :D

It went great! I got to meet El Chuxter. The others - SirSteve, JediTricks, Tycho, Deoxy I had already met.

BCJ, most of us ordered Philly Cheesesteaks. Really delicious ones at that!

It went alright, organization was a little slack but mostly we had a good time despite half the group coming in later and Deoxy having to run off to her NASA panel early. I wish more of the forumites could have made it, but it was good to meet Chux, and get together with the gang from last year, we had a good group.

The Phillys were great, but I had to go back a few days later for a mondo turkey sandwich (attached) because they're SO big, lots of "wow" factor, and I guess they taste good too but that's kinda secondary ;).

Is that JT's hand? Wow, if so it's the first picture to show that JT is a human, and not some alen as I have begun to believe.

At first I thought the picture, based on looking at the thumbnail, was someone mooning the camera. :razz:

JT looks just like Professor Farnsworth. It's freakish how much he does. I expected him to pull out an envelope marked "Contents of Giant Space Wasp's Stomach." But he talks like Barry White, so the effect was destroyed once he opened his mouth.

Oh, and he's also the lead singer of the Gorillaz, so he likes to remain anonymous.

Good news, everyone!

I just might have to break with tradition next year (if I go) and either get the pastrami or one of the premade cold sandwiches (less waiting)

Dude, you jest, but I really did have a manila envelope in my courier bag the whole time! It contained the SSG poll results and my next days' itineraries. Not career chips, but close!



But he talks like Barry White, so the effect was destroyed once he opened his mouth.That's not what the ladies say.


Oh, and he's also the lead singer of the Gorillaz, so he likes to remain anonymous.Shhhh, don't tell anybody my fake secrets! :p



I just might have to break with tradition next year (if I go) and either get the pastrami or one of the premade cold sandwiches (less waiting)Here's the problem, the philly is a great sandwich there, but it's not impressive like the torta-bread sandwiches, and it doesn't have the roughage needed to keep con-goers alive. ;) Solution? Get the philly 1 day and do a make-your-own the other day (or 3rd option, go to the con more than 2 days, or 4th option, sandwich for lunch and philly for dinner). But don't get the premades, there's no fun in that, just next time don't go with Tycho who took forever to leave the convention center despite knowing we were on a friggin' schedule. :p

We actually left the convention center right after his last call to you. The problem was that he stopped at the Hilton to use the restroom. Only now I know this but I didn't know that day that the deli was just around the corner from the Hilton. Otherwise I would've just gone ahead to order and then find you guys.

Tycho left 10 minutes after we did though, and then he made that stop. And you should have remembered that deli from last year! :p Seriously, you GOTTA get a cellphone.
