ComicCon is coming!!!

For those of you who have never been to ComicCon in San Diego, CA, you're missing the biggest, busiest, most crowded comic convention in the US!! I've been busy helping my husband and friends make promotional materials. So far, I've made 750 buttons and slapped stickers on 1000 postcards. And I'm not done yet! ComicCon starts on Wednesday, July 23rd, so I have a little bit of time yet to finish everything. But here are a few things that I'm looking forward to:

• Swag!! Yes, I am the Queen of Swag. Put out something free, and I'm there! Last year, my swag haul included about a dozen bags, 10 t-shirts, tons of buttons, postcards, bookmarks, bobble heads, posters and 3 pen drives. (Don't ask me where I store it all).

• Sneak Previews! Warner Bros. is previewing 3 pilot episodes of three new series: Human Target, V, and The Vampire Diaries. I'm especially looking forward to the Vampire Diaries. Vampires are COOL! I *might* fight the crowds for Twilight: New Moon. I'll have to remember to bring my earplugs, because the high pitch shrieks of the fans might render me deaf.

• Chasing Celebs! Last year, I got to squeeze Sci-Fi channel star Colin Ferguson, who plays the sheriff in Eureka. He was hanging out at the Sci-Fi booth, so I snuck in for a quick pic with him. He's so adorable! Hopefully they'll be a lot more celebs running around the convention room floor. I bought a new camera, so I'll be sure to post pics when I get back. :D

• Hot guys in skimpy costumes!! Well, OK, the really hot guys are the ones who get paid to dress up and entertain guests, but who's complaining? Last year, Tissie and I got to get squeezed between two hot firemen. With no shirts. Oooh la la! Drool much?

• Seeing all my industry friends! The best part of conventions is getting together with friends in the biz. It's amazing how many people I've gotten to know over the years. I'm hoping to find time to bake some cookies before I leave so that I can drop off some care packages around the convention hall. :D

• Sleeping in a haunted hotel. Maybe I'm not looking forward to this as much as my husband is, but it should be an adventure. We're staying one night at the Horten Grand Hotel. The hotel is built on the spot where a brothel used to stand. Hopefully the ghosts won't bother me while I'm trying to sleep. Hmmm... I wonder if the Ghost Hunters will be at ComicCon!! LOL

If any of you are going to be at ComicCon, let me know. I'd love to meet up!!
