No, really. Every year, within a week or two of my birthday, for as far back as I can remember, I get hit with some sort of calamity, major or minor. It’s practically a given.
This year, unfortunately, the curse contributed to me having to cancel out of attending C2E2. This was gonna be my big show for the year; I had bought a table and I was set to go. I was looking forward to seeing old friends, and meeting new ones, especially all of the fans of the Ghostbusters ongoing! I’m truly sad to be missing it.
The last time I made it to C2E2 was its inaugural year, in 2010. That was an interesting time; a weekend of truly bizarre circumstances.
How bizarre? I was pulled over on the way to Chicago for NOT speeding. You read that right. Wisconsin is a strange place.
I also had one of the worst allergy attacks I’ve ever had. The OTC meds available to me had me so loopy I’m sure I gave quite an impression to all the folks I met.
I thought this year I’d be able to experience the show without a lingering haze and with (joy) a place to sit! But such was not to be.
I do want to give a shout out to all the folks who tried to help me find a way to attend after all — Michael Moreci, Ethan Colchamiro, Paul Storrie and the artist on my upcoming Splinter one-shot, CP Wilson III. I appreciate the effort gentlemen.
…Maybe next year!
