Comic-Con Fail Redux

Son … of … a …. !!!!!     Twice now. Twice!

So, we prepared everything we could in hopes of getting tickets for the Comic-Con in the first round. Earlier this month, we were pre-registered, we’d fully checked our account, we’d pulled out our credit cards — basically, we were loaded for bear. We even linked up via cell phone to make sure one of us would get in and buy tickets for all of us. Well, you know the results of that fiasco.

Two days ago, we were notified by the SDCC Gremlins that the second round (returned tickets and such) were now available for those that didn’t get them the first time around. Here we go, Betsy! So, we are primed today. We’ve got our guns loaded. We’ve got our Gatorade. We’ve got our war paint on. We’re ready to throw down with all of the other fan boys and girls that are surely less swift at keystroking than we are. We are invicible and we WILL get tickets to the Con, by gum!

Again sharing the chores with, we figure we can’t lose. So, on with the games! The gates open and within just minutes, Justin over at gets in and lands his 4-day pass (plus preview night)! A grand “huzzah!” goes around. Next, we’re ready with our accounts, and since Justin’s already in, we prep him to quickly push through at least one more purchase before we get in through our account (just in `case). Quickly! The fingers are flying. The credit card information is rattled off like a stock broker barking out pit orders. Oh, no! Fumble! Justin enters the expiration date incorrectly and has to go back. Quickly, lad! That’s it. He’s got it in! But lo! 4-day passes are gone. Only Thursday and Sunday remain. Are you kidding us? What to do?! Make a decision! OK, grab those days and we’ll go snorkeling and site seeing for two days. OK, give it a go. Nope. Gone. The minute we spent trying to make up our minds cost us the Con this year.


If any of you say “Oh, get a life!” we’ll  … well, we don’t know what we’ll do but we’ll be upset. For a very long time. Until we figure out a way to enter the SDCC through subterfuge.



We like comics. And we like music. And we like movies. Pop culture is our game! But we also have a serious side. Current events, history, and politics are a part of the Comics A-Go-Go experience and we hope you find interesting things to read and look at while you traverse our website pages.
