How far are you coming from?

Sunny Aberdeen, Scotland. Comic-con and sun. What more could you want for a holiday. Maybe deep fried mars bars, but I don't think you guys do that.

That's my mission while at SDCC, find a deep fried mars bar vendor.  Could go the full Scottish. Chips and cheese, deep fried pizza and then a Mars bar. We're the heart attack capital of Europe for a reason

My ancestry is 50% Scottish.....my love of all things grossly deep-fried is making total sense now and I feel completely validated and justified!

all the way from Dallas Ft Worth in Texas...
Last year we drove, and I'll never do that again... (maybe) ::)

Also my first post! :)

Wow! I guess it must have been a fun road trip. How long of a drive is that though?

Car, plane, train, what have you, as long as you get to SDCC, right? lol

I did that with a mate two years ago, oddly also from Dallas Ft Worth, it was a fantastic experience. Took our time on the way there, stopping at Flagstaff and Las Vegas. The trip back was a bit mental as we did it with only a single overnight stop, which considering we left about 2pm on Sunday was good going. Some of the roads really are in the middle of know where, I remember the GPS stating "In 200 miles, turn right!!" Coming from the Uk I found this hilarious. Back home you cant walk 200 yeards withour falling over someone.

I'd love to do the road trip option again.......maybe 2015!

Coming from Hawaii.  This will be our third time at SDCC.  Excited already!  Especially now that con announcements are trickling in. :D

My 3 friends and I are coming from Toronto, Canada (4000+km). You might've heard of our Mayor? xD

LOL, Fortunately, I left Toronto before he became mayor. But I grew up there and lived there until I moved out here too California! Where in Toronto are you? I'm originally from North York (York Mills & Bayview).

You've got to love the guy really. I hate politicians that give fake apologies, when you know they don't really give a dam. This guy, he basically says, ---- you , I don't care what you think. I'm mayor, now ---- off. How can you not love that a little bit.

Australian crow, or an American crow?


Errrrrr......is that a quote from Monty Python?
If so, is that from the US release? As the UK release is Swallow instead of Crow.
I just would never have guessed that line would have been changed. Hahaha.
