I goes to Blizzcon…. maybe?


Blizzcon 2009 has been annouced via Wow insider vai the EU Blizzard site

I’m seriously considering going.

Pros
Its in August – I can get holidays from work then
I’ve never been OS and I’d rather not wait untill my long service leave
I’ve already brought my flat – I can now save for a holiday
flights/accom seem reasonable ( darn our Aussie/US dollar at the moment though
There will be lots to do
I can play tourist before/after the con
It should only be a 12 hour flight. I think I can survive that.
I can go las vegas and continue my geekiness and see the star Trek experience ( yes.. its always been one of those things I wanted to see)
brain explosion!

cons
I won’t know anyone – though I’m sure there will be a lot of friendly people around.
Getting any of my friends organised/In the financial position to go will be impossible.
The Aussie/Us dollar
What happens if I can’t get tickets? or accomodation
12 hour flight.

mmm my cons seem pretty weak.

Im really serious about this..

ahhh I can add that to my random things to do this year,
which already includes finishing off my Uni degree by correspondence before it becomes useless and doing an 5 week archery course.

I may not have written about it before, but I brought my own flat in december last year in a massive fit of pretending to be a grown up. ( see playing wow lets you save for house deposits) Its changed my attitude alot about what I want from life. One goal down more to go, it also gave me the strength to do things I should have done before. ( like wash a particular person out of my hair.. its working so far.)

But this is the sort of thing I should just do!

So yeah.. the more I think on this the more I want to do it.

think think think.

I might wait untill I can see if I actually can get a ticket..

    Heya Pug, I’m not trying to rain on your parade or anything considering how much I would love to go to blizz con myself, but I have some bad news on one of your pros. On September 1st, the Star Trek Experience closed their doors. The hotel decided it wasn’t profitable enough anymore. Universal might bring it back somewhere else in order to promote the new movie, but till then it’s just sitting in storage somewhere. Sorry to be the one to let you know.
