Ok.. I played the “I want a Blizzcon ticket” game last night.. And lost.
BUT! I win the “Having the most awesome friends in the whole world” game! And who is this awesome friend that just happened to pick up some extra tickets!?!?! If you couldn’t tell from the title of this post.. Hydra from Almost Evil!
OMGOMGOMG.. I was seriously upset at not getting a ticket because I really can’t try again on Saturday.. My son has his Championship baseball game that starts EXACTLY when tickets go on sale.. Bah!
I was bummed.. Figured I was going to have to beg and plead and plead and beg and even maybe plead some more and also beg some more for someone to pick up an extra ticket for my on Saturday. But then.. I get an email from Hydra.. “Hey, you need a ticket?”. Can you say relieved?
So, anyway.. This whole post is just so I can, again, say THANK YOU! to Hydra….
Well, it is actually kinda dark in the convention center. Actually, aside from the catchy title, I really don’t have much to post (yeah right). I’m excitedly awaiting the process of getting my Blizzcon 2010 tickets. I think, at this point, I’m picking up 3 of the 5 you are allowed “per household”. Last year I only picked up one, but I had no issues getting in line both days of the ticket sale. This year they changed it up a bit and have the first sale at night (at least for us) on a Wednesday (tonight!). The second day is Saturday morning/afternoon (again, for the U.S.). So, if I hop on the fail whale tonight, I can always try on Saturday too.
If you can’t tell, I’m really looking forward to Blizzcon 2010. It’s all the way in October, but these things have a way of creeping up on you. I’ve already got my hotel booked (and even got the price lowered already!) and have ideas about flights, etc. Once I have confirmation that I “won” the ability to buy a ticket, (Well, it’s like a “fastest fingers” comeptition.. ) I’ll start pricing out the flights and see if I can use some Freq. Flier miles to get em.
I’m excited to see the people I met last year and also all the people I’m connected with since the last one that have said they are attending. I think this year will be even more “awesomer” (or somesuch).
Ok.. I’m done spewing.. I’ll let you know if I get my tickets tonight! I’ll wave from the queue if you are in there too.. Save me a spot!
Wow. It’s been a crazy week. Not only did we do our first of many live TNB recordings on our new night (Tuesdays), but I was also on a podcast the Friday before… And the Friday after!
The Friday prior, I was on Women of Warcraft. Yes, yes. I know.. I am not a woman. But, Molly asked me to be her first guest host, and I was honored to accept. Go ahead and listen to Episode 10. This is her new Audio podcast. She’’s been doing the vidcast thing for much longer and is on Episode 57, I think. There were some issues with the recording because we had to use a technology with a lot of lag.. But I think, in the end, it was great anyway. It was definitely lots of fun hanging with Molly for the evening.. Even if I was about 30 seconds behind..
And then? Well, there’s this new show at WowTitans.Net .. Curiously enough.. It’s called the Wow Titans Cast. Or something like that.. Anyway, I was invited by Ravonbrand to be their second guest (what!? Not the first.. [jk]). I was happy to oblige and they even stayed up till the wee hours in the morning to accommodate my schedule (thanks guys!). So, you should go take a listen to THAT episode too..
So, if you just can’t get enough of “yours truly” (*cough* *cough).. Well, there are 2 more places you can hear me babble on endlessly (although a little less endlessly than TNB and Polygamerous.. well, maybe)..
