Hoping ...but not holding my breath.

A couple weeks ago I tried to get tickets to Comic Con in San Diego.

The site crashed and I got an error screen.

It took ages for the page to finally load for me to get into the waiting room.

The page was supposed to refresh itself every 120 seconds.

Mine stayed as it was for over 45 minutes. (Picture was taken at about 11am Pacific after getting into the waiting room at 9:04am Pacific.). I heard of some peoples screen not refreshing for hours and it showing them still in line even though tickets sold out hours before hand.

My number in line did not change. So I made the rookie error of refreshing the page myself and I got chucked out of the waiting room.

I was not able to get ticket to go to Comic Con. I am still going to go to NerdHQ though. I am all booked for a 2 week vacation in California. Hotel rooms that have been blocked off for Comic Con go on sale today at 9am Pacific. Is it bad of me that I hope that some people who got tickets for Comic Con don't get hotel rooms and they end up returning their badges and those badges go on re-sale? I have a hotel room all sorted after all.

Girl Scout Cookies & Chris Moyles & Twitter

K is selling cookies again and we went to pick up her initial order yesterday. She will be doing a booth sale in a couple weeks at a store in town and is still taking orders from anyone who wants cookies. We were rather controlled this year and only ordered one of each flavor, unlike previous years where I got slightly carried away. If you're in the area and want some cookies, just drop me a message and I'll get them sorted for you.


If any of you are on twitter and you want to see your twitter @ mentions column go mental, all you need to do is get a RT or reply from a celebrity. If said celebrity has over 2 million followers, like Chris Moyles has, then it goes really, really mental!

Speaking of twitter, my celebrity followers have gone very odd recently.

I've added Matt Goss and Vanilla Ice into the mix. Along with Barack Obama, Jaime Oliver, Philip Schofield, Coldplay, Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez.






Sweets From Back Home

Are you a fellow Brit abroad?  Do you miss sweets like real Cadbury chocolate, not the Hersheys rubbish? I know personally I have regu...
