Fucking Nerds

This is my first comic con. The other two years I got tickets really easy- I strolled to midtown comics during my lunch break and bought the tickets but was flaked on by my friends and decided to sell them rather than go alone. But this time I decided to go for ME. And of course this is the year when the Con becomes horrifically popular. Lines stretching two avenues!

My roommate and her two friends and I had a game plan: we're at three different stores in Manhattan and one in Jersey, and whoever gets to buy tickets first is going to buy them for all four of us. So hopefully this plan will pay off.

The problem is with the damn scalpers. They're already selling the tickets for over $100 dollars or becoming mercenaries who charge $200 to wait in line for customers, and this is before any retail store tickets went on sale. These people were able to buy the tickets online before the con's server crashed from overload and are already trying to take advantage of people who are actually really passionate about this.

I'm writing this from the line. I got here four hours early and I'm worried I won't be able to get tickets....pray for me, GT. Send me your energy like the sailor scouts did for Sailor Moon.
