We went in to the Sean Maher panel, the mics were low and the sound bleed from the other rooms was treacherous! I caught maybe 85% of what he was saying... Hunger Games panel was next, now if I knew that they were going to clear us out, I would have skipped Sean for Primrose, but I didn't, and it took 15 mins of that panel just to get out and back to the entrance! It was full so we decided to leave, and get a little space...
We went down south wharf, did some browsing, went for a hot chocolate at a lovely cafe, just chilling the eff out... An hour or more passed, and I really, really wanted to see Julie Benz, so we went back! 30% of the people were outside, 30% were in the Stan Lee panel which left us some time to browse in a way that wasn't a fire code hazard! Then Julie started, we got third row, and could hear every charming word! She's still gorgeous, funny and charismatic... I thoroughly enjoyed her panel, was sad it was over! My plan was to stay for Fran Kranz, but Mark isn't a fan and he had already spent my hour with Sean cruising around so we headed home!
I only hope that they sort out some of their issues for tomorrow! And maybe next year choose a venue twice the size!
After writing this I read about the people with tickets being turned away, that the doors closed up to an hour at a time! I am just glad we got in, would have been livid after organising a whole day of childcare just to be turned away!
