A month before the event I spent a thousand dollars...all non refundable on plane tickets,hotel room and tickets to the event. Only to have her drop out of the event four days before it takes place
So now not only am I not going to get to meet her I'm out a thousand bucks and have to go to an event I really don't care about all the other folks who are going to be there It's either that or just stay home and eat the thousand bucks as a total lost.
I'm still PISSED over this.
Oh no, that totally sucks . Sorry to hear that.
You know what, I would go anyway and try to make the most of it. You might find that you find that you enjoy it more than you think you will, even though Emilie won't be there.
I started attending TV conventions a couple of years ago and I'm totally addicted to them now - the atmosphere at them has been so good that I've ended up loving even the guests that I didn't think I wanted to meet and the whole experience has been really great. I've now gotten into several TV shows that I never even considered watching before, but I became interested in them after meeting some of the actors from the shows.
If you'd asked me 3 years ago if I would ever attend a TV/comic convention, I would have laughed and said 'no way in Hell'... but I caved and attended one... and now I've been to six in the last 2 years. I'm going to another con in 3 weeks (Dallas), one in October (UK) and two next May (UK and Italy)!
