WonderCon 2009: And you are there!

Not everyone can make it to WonderCon every year, I understand that. Honestly though, if you don't deal well with crowds, you should probably stay home, because, wow.

Not everyone can make it to WonderCon every year, I understand that. Honestly though, if you don't deal well with crowds, you should probably stay home, because wow.

The crowds on Saturday are probably the reason I'm not going back on Sunday. I can take only so much of clueless geeks bumping my camera, walking into my shot, standing in the middle of heavy traffic areas, (apparently) not bathing that day, and making dumb "purist" comments about changes from the graphic novel to the "Watchmen" movie, only to be proven completely wrong.

Yeah, I'm a geek myself and I'm sure I'm just as annoying to others when I'm blocking their view while pushing over elderly women in an attempt to take pics of hot chicks dressed as DC comics characters. Who wouldn't be irked at that?

I guess it's some kind of weird self-loathing that gives me such a low tolerance level with my brethren.

Anyway, I braved the trenches so you didn't have to.
