Welcome to Comic-Non International!
Yeah, I'm not going to San Diego, either. Sigh... maybe someday.
But I've got comics, DVDs, and a whole week's worth of BBC America premiere screenings (Torchwood: Children of Earth, Being Human, Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead). All I have to do is not shower and it'll be just like the real thing, only without the crowds and the debilitating back & foot pain.
I think I can make this work.
