I know, I know. Last year I made a post saying I’d be back this year but things happen. It’s important to know when something is a bit of a stretch. It’s an expensive trip and not something someone should just jump into. That being said, within two hours of talking about it most of Team Pulp will be once again returning to San Diego. It started as just myself and Melinda. Then I was able to talk Katy into it. Then we started bugging Jamie and Moonpie. Then Deidre said Keith wanted to go. And Ryn said she missed everyone and needed to go back. And that’s exactly how it went. I don’t know how we do this, but we do. It’s really something to see in action. The posts in our Facebook group just start going and don’t stop and before you know it everyone has hotels booked. Yup, I already have a hotel booked for next year. Honestly, the hotel lottery is probably the worse part of SDCC and I’m glad we were able to avoid it. Sure, badges are a pain in the ass too but you don’t really need a badge to have a good time. You do need a hotel room though. Oh and did I mention it’s in the Gaslamp?
And we’ve already been working on a group cosplay as well. I told you we waste no time on this stuff. We’re professionals. It’s just hard to sit here and see all my friends having a great time in San Diego. It’s not even the panels (OK, it is a little bit), it’s just missing everyone and the city. I love San Diego and always have a great time. Plus SDCC holds a special place in my heart. It was my very first convention. Yes, I jumped right into the mess. Plus it’s just fun to escape reality a little bit.
Is anyone else planning to return next year?
