Comic Con: Day 1 Hunting and Escaping

We took the insanely long 2 hr. drive down to San Diego on Thursday to give all our Geek brothers and sisters the low-down on the epic convention known as Comic Con!!! First off we got to our motel 30 miles away from San Diego because the price per night at a hotel in San Diego for that particular weekend would have forced us to get a loan to pay for the three nights we needed to be there. We found a nice little place, checked in around 9am and then jettisoned off to the show. When we got into San Diego we passed the convention center and I swore Jesus must have been giving out miracles because there were thousands of people lined up outside. AnnaMay and I looked over in awe at the Geeky magnitude of it all (this being our first Comic Con and all). Then we spent the rest of the day finding a parking spot. Well it felt like the rest of the day at least, easily the hardest part of going to Comic Con is finding decent parking, and if your lucky enough to find parking within 10 blocks of the center you'll be paying out the nose, but that's capitalism so what are you going to do? We took the long trek over, got our passes just soon enough to not get in to the Paramount Panel. That was pretty disappointing considering they talked about Iron Man and the new Star Trek, but the line was outside the door and around the building and we didn't have a chance to get in.

Yeah, I heard Jesus had a really good panel this year, but I didn't know he was giving out miracles. Damn, there are all kinds of Comic Con exclusives!
