it’s monday?  

Apparently it’s Monday, and I’m not entirely clear on how that happened. I feel like I’m several days, at least, behind. I woke up at 7:something this morning, thought, “I should get up now,” decided to lie in for a few more minutes, had a rather scattered yet vivid dream involving not so much Dean and Sam as the Impala (which the Good Ol’ Boy in the dream said was a Dodge Impala, wtf, but I was playing the part of a … girl/friend who was trying to replace the Impala (which didn’t actually need replacing, but I was *really* trying to find out some other thing to help solve the mystery that was going on, and so *dumb blonde giggle* well sure Dodge I mean it’s a car what do I know about them except he looooooooooved his car soooooooooo much) and the next time I really looked at the clock it was 9:00. I staggered out of bed a little confused.

Then I nerved myself up for Certain Doom and called Continental Airlines, upon whom I am supposed to be flying to Comic-Con. I’d gotten a notification last week after Dad reserved the ticket saying ‘The ticket hasn’t been issued due to technical problems, you need do nothing’, so I didn’t, and then after a couple of days of nothing I got nervous, and there was a bunch of jumping through hoops, and I emailed to say “um?” and they emailed back eventually and said “call this number”, so this morning I did, basically figuring the fare was going to have quadrupled (or even just doubled, that would’ve been more than problem enough) and that I wasn’t going to get to go.

Instead I talked to a very nice guy who accidentally hung up on me, then to a very nice woman who explained they’d been having technical problems for the last week and she wouldn’t even try transferring me (which was how the first guy hung up on me), she’d just see if she could do all the website stuff herself. And she could, and did, and got me the plane ticket at the original price, and I am now waiting VERY NERVOUSLY for it to arrive in my email box as promised. Within an hour, she said. It’s been about half an hour now. If I don’t have it by noon or one my time I’ll call back and see if I can talk to her again specifically, since she knows what’s up with me.

This is not much like writing a book. Furthermore, my brain is absolutely certain it’s Sunday (possibly Sunday the 29th of June, mind you, but Sunday) and that I really ought to get to have today off. Neither of these things are true.

*stares nervously at email*

ETA: ticket has arrived! I am going to ComicCon! EEEEEEEE!

Yay for the plane ticket! When I made my reservation for Denvention, it took nearly a day for the emailed confirmation to arrive, and I was almost a basket case by the time it turned up. Whew!

Glad you got your ticket. *bounces* Know what you mean about the vivid lie-in dreams though. My regular weekend lie in tends to be enlivened by astonishingly vivid and complicated dreams, not very restful either. *pouty*

Nice! I'd love to go to ComicCon.

Michael Carroll will be there this year promoting his books.

Yep, Michael is on a panel about Superhero Superfiction on Thurs. :)

Awwwwwwww, man, I wish I were going to ComicCon. All the cool kids will be there. Maybe next year.

We want to hear reports of your successes and fun there!

You had me worried there for a second -- esp. 'cause from where you are, there's no getting to Comic-Con via car, Impala or otherwise... :: grin ::

That is a seriously weird dream - especially since Chevy made the Impala, not Dodge.

Congrats on getting your ticket to ComicCon - selfish me wishes you were coming to Denvention instead.

I know Chevy made the Impala! It was very strange. :) And I wish I was going to Denvention, too, but the money didn't come together, and, well, with the comic launch coming up, ComicCon was the best choice. :)

YAY Comic Con - I sure hope I get to see you there.

"Hope" is a bad strategy when it comes to something like Comic Con! We should arrange to meet up! Of course, I don't know my schedule yet, except I've got a panel followed by a signing on Friday afternoon. :)
