Sorry eerie. My GF has family still based in Seattle, so we're staying at her mom's place. Normally, anything outside LA warrants me getting a hotel. But with a lot of financial problems along with other conventions and cosplay costs, I gotta cut corners since I can barely afford this trip as is. I'm just glad we have a free room and marginal driving expenses.
Good to hear about her panel situation, bad to hear about the autographs. I was hoping that I could fall in line twice for that because I have more than 1 thing I'd like to get her to sign, along with something a friend needs. =/ If I can get 1 autograph and 1 group photo with her and my friends, I'll be extremely happy.
