So Comic-Con was this past weekend in San Diego, California and the last time I was there was in 2008. I got to meet a lot of stars that weekend; I sat in on a panel with the cast from Prison Break, another with Kiefer Sutherland and 24, met the cast of The Big Bang Theory and got my picture taken with stars like Seth Green, Olivia Munn and Joe Madureira (Battle Chasers, FTFW!). I’ve been trying to get back to Comic-Con since, but those tickets sell out months before and I assume it’s just gonna get worse as this event is getting more and more popular every year. I think I’ll have to buy my tickets tomorrow for next year’s event, lol.
There was a Shared Topic post over at Blog Azeroth created by Dragonray that talked about meeting a reputable gamer/blogger, either through the game or through the blogosphere, and asking how your experience went. Even though I wasn’t able to attend Comic-Con this year, I did have my own “Starstruck” experience this weekend in WoW.
Saturday night, I finally got to meet Cymre and Coolidge online for the first time! They were in TotC and were having trouble duoing the Beasts. So I came in and went tanky for them and the three of us easily and quickly cleared the place. After we downed Anub, we had a party and I showed Cym the goodies I told her I would when we finally met. I gave her some gifts and Cool and I had a laugh when she had a mix up by redeeming the Grell pet on a different server. =P Thanks guys for inviting me to your run!
I got up early Sunday morning to join a 25 man Ulduar run (my favorite raid) hosted by Navimie, McTacky and the rest of the Frostees. They also invited Dragonray (the “Starstruck” creator, how ironic, lol), JD (a fellow WoW toy collector, yay!) and a few others to the raid and we had a blast earning achievees all over the place. I ended up getting a whopping 18 achievees in that run alone! I won’t show the screenshots, but here’s the list:
- Take Out Those Turrets
- Must Deconstruct Faster
- Nerf Engineering
- With Open Arms
- Nine Lives
- I Could Sat That This Cache Was Rare
- Getting Cold in Here
- I Have the Coolest Friends
- Cheese the Freeze
- Lose Your Illusion
- I’ll Take You All On
- Getting Back to Nature
I have to say, this was a pretty fun weekend, especially getting to meet and play with people you read about in the blogosphere. Meeting Cym, Cool, Dragonray and JD for the first time was pretty awesome and even though I’ve ran with Navi, Tacky and the other Frostees in BGs and raids before, it’s always a starstrucking (lol) experience everytime! I hope to run with everyone again soon!
