A reminder - all the cool stuff you see being covered on your favorite geek sites - the celebrities, the parties, the exclusives? You have to stand in line 3 hours to get the toy, the actors are so far away you end up watching them on screen anyway, and you are not invited to that party.
We need a word for when you’ve seen/heard the parody/spoof of a movie/tv show/book/song before you ever experienced the original and are now spoiled for the original.
I am not going to San Diego Comic-Con this year. No benevolent benefactor came forward to donate the hundreds of dollars it would cost to fly out to California and stay at a hotel for the weekend. So sad. BUT I did live the geek dream 4 years ago and managed to attend in 2010. And, of course, I came home with a bag of goodies! Some more random than others, but I love them all.
