Whenever I travel, the excitement of the upcoming trip is always somewhat muted by the fact that I’ll be leaving my dogs behind. I wouldn’t mind so much if it weren’t for the fact that the dogs KNOW we’re leaving and get downright depressed. Bubba paces, Lulu tries to squeeze in as much play time as possible, while the usually languid Jelly is even more so. She wouldn’t even eat her breakfast this morning until I sat down on the floor and hand fed her.
Anyway, I checked in with Christine, our dog-sitter, and I’m pleased to report they’re in excellent spirits. A far cry from this morning. Check ’em out:
Well, we’re in San Diego and I’m pleased to report we decided to go with an unhaunted hotel this time out (January 19, 2007). This year, I’m a guest of Dark Horse Comics who kindly put us up at the Hard Rock Hotel, only steps away from the action. We got in at noon, grabbed lunch (Mexican, natch. We’re in San Diego!), then headed down to the convention center to walk the floor and check out the sights…
I did an advance scout on the Dark Horse Comics booth and met the lovely Kari Yadro who organized the festivities. The gal moves so fast that, by the time I wanted to snap her pic for the blog, she was gone. Will have to get her tomorrow. And maybe Claudia Black as well (SG-1’s Vala Mal Doran) who is apparently in town as well.
A little R&R and then we’re off to walk the neighborhood and grab some dinner.
Tomorrow = the Dark Matter signing! If you’re in the neighborhood between 4:00 – 5:00 p.m., come find me at the Dark Horse booth (#2615)!
