When that third pic went up, the first thing that popped into my head was "Helloooo, Mr. Kennedy." ;) (Or Admiral Kennedy, as I like to say now that Jamie's less of a wee crumpet. Heh.)
HOW is D*C less than two weeks away?! Exciting; I'm glad my first time will be with you and the gals, being with vets helps. ;) (Although once you've braved Hall H for an entire day at SDCC, you can pretty much handle anything without flinching.) Also glad I can plan around the panels now, though I probably won't be penciling in much more until I get more intel on my friends and work contacts who are attending; I might need to skip some of my "maybe" panels to meet up with them, depending on the day. At least I won't have the same work load as I did at SDCC, this trip is more for fun. (Oh, and a little bummed I may have to miss the Monday BSG panel to catch my flight, though if it won't cost too much I may move my flight later in the afternoon... we'll see.)
I had been side-eyeing Galacticon on and off for the past several months; with Jamie in, obviously my interest just got a swift kick in the ass. ;) Depending on who else gets added, I have some friends who might decide they're in too. I agree though, it's a little too far out to commit yet. (And *if* I go it'll be the Silver membership, $300 just for admission is way out of my price range. o_O).
