Comic Con Day 2

Comic Con day two was pretty good overall. Started off far different than most of my usual days and by this I mean I woke up before noon. 

The beginning of the day we woke up far earlier than we had thought we were going to since the night before we had been running off of 3 hours of sleep. Went to the trolley, got to the con and got in the first line of the day: the line to get into the convention since we were there that early. 

When Mike and I finally got in, we then traveled the floor of the con and browsed more in-depth than the first day getting a far better idea of what was actually being shown down stairs as well as what was going on. I took tons of pictures (a couple hundred) and finally got ahold of Keenen to meet up with him. After we met up with Keenen I called Austin then headed to where he was at. 

So after getting calling him a few times I found out he was in line for Hall 20... which was outside the convention wrapping around the outer building, down stairs and at the bay. So for whatever reason, we got in line. Randomly when talking, Austin asked if the person coming up was Judi of which it was so I grabbed her and pulled her into the line where we were at. which was now a hundred or so people further. We wanted to see "The Walking Dead" panel and the "Big Bang Theory" panel but that was not going to happen sadly, even though they were both hours away. 

So about 4 hours later, maybe longer, we finally got into the hall thanks to the show "Bones" being canceled. Since it was canceled, the cast didn't show up and the hall was actually cleared out. So instead we waited through two other panels to see the "True Blood" panel. 

After that we went down and got some really good burgers from this new franchise place called "Smashburger." The burgers were actually pretty good. A little more expensive than most fast food burgers but they were pretty damn good. Also had some pretty good garlic fries as well as some awesome looking shakes (BUTTERFINGER MILKSHAKE!) which I didn't get to have sadly. 

Ended randomly catastrophic but was resolved. All in all, god day, two more to go. 

Some random highlights include: Some new awesome cosplayers, random hobo harassing Mike since he thought he was some actual pokemon when he's a breeder and a really creepy rabbit dude.
