Well, I’m finally back home – but it was touch and go there for a while. For some reason, there are no direct flights from Vancouver to San Diego, so we were at the whim of the schedule makers. The aforementioned decreed one hour would be plenty of tie to fly in to San Francisco from San Diego and catch the connecting flight to Vancouver. To make it more interesting, however, our departure gate was left off the ticket, requiring us to race over to the schedule board as soon as we disembarked.
Surprise #1: The connecting flight wasn’t leaving from the nearby international terminal. It was leaving from the OTHER international terminal across the airport!
Surprise #2: We had to through security. Again!
Surprise #3: Apparently, so did more traveler than I had EVER seen stand in line to go through security.
In the end, we did manage to make our flight – with moments to spare – exchanging that crying kid who sat in front of me for the first leg of my flight for a completely different, no less crying, kid for the second leg.
I back home and I’m exhausted. But very pleased with my Comic Con haul:
I had a great time doing the panel and an equally amazing time catching up with some fellow writers (the amazing @Paul_Cornell and the ever-awesome @marjoriemliu) and meeting a bunch of terrific blog friends (Lisa! Screwball! Jeanine! David! Tiffany! Tom! Erin! Jenny and co.! And especially Beth who I had the opportunity to chat with, but not quite as long as I would have liked as I was shuffled off to do a press thing!) but I’m pretty sure that was my last Comic Con.
One of the things I’d like to do now that I’m back at my HQ and not having to run from hotel to booth to hotel, is go through your recent comments and do a mailbag. So, if you have any questions, now’s the time to post ’em. Dark Matter episode #105 aired last night in North America – and Monday in the U.K., Germany, and Portugal (Where we’re apparently breaking all sorts of records. Yeah, Portugal!).
I’m in talks to take part in something called a Periscope for the U.K. airing of Dark Matter’s sixth episode, July 20th. I have no idea what it is but so long as I’m not required to fully submerge myself, I’m in!
Today’s entry is dedicated to blog regular gforce and Bart. Get better, buddy!
