I Is Home!!


Hey folks,

I arrived back in NY at 6:45am today, having taken the red eye back from CA.  So, I'm a bit brainfried.  I hope to share my thoughts about the SV and SPN panels soon, and post more pics.  I think my SPN ones came out really well, and I have lots of good shots of Tom, some of which I've already shared.

Aside from SV and SPN, I saw so many incredible panels.  The highlights for me were:
 
  •  Harrison Ford coming out on the Cowboys & Aliens panel (without a doubt, the most incredible reception anyone got!)
  •  The announcement of The Avengers cast, complete with Robert Downey Jr coming out and being a freaking rock star
  •   Ryan Reynolds reciting the Green Lantern oath to a tiny fan which touched the heart of just about every Hall H attendee
  •  The Hall H stabbing,
  •  Finding Sylvester Stallone pretty damn charming on The Expendables panel
  •  The Riff Trax panel and them doing a live riff on "Buying Food"
  •  The sweetest 2 guys on the exhibit floor who kindly traded their SV/SPN bags with me and serenography  when they realized how much we wanted them (LOVE YOU GUYS!)
  •  Footage from Tron:Legacy, Paul, The Expendables, Battle Los Angeles, Thor and Green Lantern all being interesting enough to make me wnat to check those movies out
  • Hanging out with serenography , theclexfactor  and her +1, the amazingly nice E, and dawnybee who slept outside on a sidewalk all night so that we could all have terrific seats.
  • The nice people you meet in line and strike up a conversation with
  • The Glee panel.  Never watched the show, but the panel was full of energy, and fun, and great clips.  I'll check it out now.
Downsides, well, as always, the organization is a mess, the WB booth on the Con floor was complete chaos and run by idiots, too many of the Con employees/volunteers are rude and stupid, and its just impossible to get to see any of the big things on the same day if they are in different venues.  I saw tons of big movie stuff, but the trade-off was not seeing much in the way of TV stuff.

I'll be back later with more details, and more pictures.

Welcome home! I love hearing your insights, and I can't wait for more details of your adventures. I especially want to hear your impressions of Tom. The pics you've shared so far have been amazing, I treasure every one.

Did you see the Sons of Anarchy panel? I know that was one you were interested in.

Get some rest! I wonder if we'll get any fun stories or pics from Tom's appearance at the TCAs tomorrow.

The biggest impression I have of Tom, if I had to sum it up in one word, is "Boss". I think he's firmly in Boss mode. Very much in charge, professional, relaxed, confident.

And thats OK about the SoA panel. LOL

I hope there are some pics tomorrow. Our Tom is a busy man at the moment.

Glad you made it home okay. I'm sure you're exhausted and, if you're like me, have a ton of catching up to do. I can't believe how many pictures I took! I have to go through and weed some out.

You hit on most of the same highlights for me. And the downsides. I'm going to try and write up something, but I'm glad to have you to jog my memory.

As always, it was fantastic to see you again, and please tell C how much I enjoyed meeting and spending time with her.

I feel so out of it. Not tired, exactly, but more having some trouble getting back into my routine.

C had a fun time with you guys too. I think it all worked out really well.

I'm so glad you went so I can vicariously live through you. Thanks for sharing it all. I really appreciate it. <3

No problem. There's so much to tell, I don't even know how to share it all. Comic Con is really an assault on the senses.

Resist! It started out fun but quickly became...not so.

Well, maybe it will take longer for me to tire of it because I didn't start watching it from the beginning?

I feel so lucky that I can say I've seen him twice, in the flesh. He really is such an impressive man. Not just in looks, but just for sheer charisma.

Don't forget, one weekend in NYC!
