::pouts::

Dinner's gonna be late, and all I've got to show for it is this lousy "ticket quantity = -2" page.

Not gonna be in Austin for the Marsathon, it looks like. Sighs. Also not gonna pay outrageous scalper prices on eBay, but if someone out there got a ticket and ends up not needing it, holler at me, okay? I'll spring for the hotel room!

Mostly, I was looking forward to meeting all of you neat VM fen. Maybe this will have been such a big hit they'll do it again. A girl can hope, right?

ETA: ::bounces:: I was able to get a Sunday night ticket at the site, much later this evening! Even better, someone connected me with someone who had a Saturday available! I'll be there, with bells on.

Well, I'm going to keep my eyes peeled. Maybe someone will turn one up. I'd almost rather go on Sunday anyway, really, and those could be easier to get...

Did you manage to get those Sunday tickets? Decisions, decisions. I can't decide if I want to do the Sunday show or not. On the one hand, I'm more excited to meet the fans than the cast. On the other, it's a lot of money (and by that I mean not just the ticket but going to Austin and getting a hotel, etc.) for not even getting the full experience.

Still workin' on it.

I set aside a specific budget for this endeavor, and if I don't spend it on VM, I'll donate it to WriterCon. So the money's spent on fannish activities, regardless. The way I figure it, if I can't get to the Sat. thing, then I can be that much more helpful setting up ...uh...other fannish activities for those who are relegated to Sunday only.

hey - They are releasing tickets in small batches. About every 30 minutes. If they keep doing this, they should be releasing some Sat tickets in a little while. I keep trying. If I get through, I'll get 2 Saturday tickets and the second one will be yours if you want it. :)

Ditto, then. And great news!

Yay! I was just coming here to check if you'd gotten one or not! Ring the bells so I can find you!

You betcha! Rae and I are both squared away.

Is there an unofficial hotel where gathering is occurring? LJ is taking its sweet time getting that comm thing over the transom, but I'm chomping at the bit to find out where to locate myself.

Am, of course, willing to help with any unofficial event happenings. I've got a tiny bit of experience with some of it...just say the word.

No hotel info as of yet. We welcome your expertise in the matter once you get into the comm.

I'll start digging around while we wait.

squee!

LJ people never cease to amaze me. I really was okay with not getting in, but folks like those above are phenomenal, and now I'm *so* excited!
