Last week the Comic Con folks let everyone know that this weekend would be ticket sale time.  Last year, after a long wait and struggle online, we received tickets for one day each.  It was a big disappointment.

This year, just like last year, G got to the room early, had two browsers open, and had his cell going also.  One of his coworkers, Don, at the museum goes.  G could buy tickets for three returning ticketholders as could Don and his brother.  Don had two browsers open and his phone to text with George.  Don’s brother had two browsers open.  Don’s nice new wife didn’t go last year, so none of us could buy her a ticket.  Yes, it gets complicated and with a language all of its own.

Then POOF! George was allowed to buy four tickets for himself, four days for me, and four days for Don.  Don got four days for his brother.  George has begun working on a costume for the event….one that’s a lot cooler.

Now waiting for the Volunteer badges.


  1. Wow! What a great surprise after last year. Hope you're feeling ok.

  2. This is beginning to sound like a marathon requiring much skill. Glad it was worth the effort and multiple technologies.

  3. Four fun days this year! Your group was organized!

  4. Glad the tickets worked out for you. Interesting couple in your photo -- quite elaborate.

  5. Never give up. All's well that ends well - hopefully.

  6. For the first time in the fifteen years since we started going, we were shut out.

    I don't understand about the browsers though, because their rules specifically said one registration link # per one browser. No opening two unless you have two different link #'s.

    Anyhow, we were shut out. If we don't get in during open registration next month, we are permanently out, because we will have lost the 'went last year' advantage. We had three links going, I don't know how NONE of us got in. We are crushed/heartbroken. This is who we ARE. Now we aren't. :(

    1. I am so very sorry. Yes, we had one link per browser. We were like that one year a few years ago. Last year, we got only one day, but thaat let us both get in and get a new volunteer job that we love.

  7. Oh wow! Congratulations! I am so looking forward to seeing the photos of all the costumes. What fun!


What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.


We got there too early for our assignments, but after trying to get coffee we got both just in the knick of time.    Portfolio Re...
